Feb 11 is normally a day for rallies all over the country in Iran. It is the anniversary of the Islamic revolution. All over the country, people boycotted the rallies. The regime did their best to scare people in participating, threatening punishment & threatening people's jobs for not participating. School children & their teachers were forced to participate. Many of those who were forced were reluctant to join in, as videos showed only a small group answering to the calls for chants on loudspeakers.
As usual, the regime sent buses to transport people to rallies in other cities to try to increase the numbers for the cameras, but people didn't show up for the buses.
Regime tv showed footage from the past and tried to pass it off as 'live' scenes.
Now pres. Rouhani has been sent out to call for "unity" and proposed a referendum to help settle differences. (Ha)
There never was a 1979 revolution.
Thanks nuconvert. Iranian Mullahcracy Fail.
They waited a whole nine months before going to war against the US. Still ongoing, as is the war against the Iranian people. Now the Embassy, American land, is a museum
