A short summary of six days of protests
From the 28th of December onwards, Iran is the scene of protests which are comparable in size to those of 2009 during the so-called ‘green revolution’. According to information from mass media sources, the demonstrations have already led to direct confrontations with the police, as a result of which no less than two people have died in Dorud (in the western part of Iran).
