The 20 Worst Political Scandals In History

WASHINGTON D.C. — Thousands of pro-government demonstrators held their fourth day of nonstop rallying Saturday in cities throughout Iran. The demonstrators had come out in force earlier this week amid police suppression of a wave of anti-government protests that had swept more than 80 cities and towns throughout the country late last month.

The anti-government protests first broke out December 28 in northeastern Mashhad and quickly spread. Protesters were at first condemning unemployment, high consumer prices, and other economic ills but soon came out against political corruption, as well.

Iranian Revolutionary Guard units deployed and forcibly broke up protests in a nationwide crackdown that resulted in 22 deaths and the arrests of more than a thousand protesters. The head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard declared Wednesday that the demonstrations were officially over.

That same day, state television aired the first live scenes of pro-government demonstrators waving Iranian flags and chanting "Death to America," "Death to Britain," and "Death to Israel" in cities such as Shiraz, Amol, Semnan, and Shadegan. TV news anchors called these demonstrations "a response to rioters and supporters of the riots."

Meanwhile, the government has blocked access from anywhere within Iran to any social-media apps that anti-government protesters used to publicize their demonstrations, including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and the messaging app Telegram. Iranians only regained the use of Instagram Saturday.

 

In-country sources told Reuters that the anti-government protests were definitively waning as of Saturday while the pro-government assemblies were going strong. And the provincial governor of northeastern Mashhad had reportedly released 85% of detainees after they signed a pledge not to "re-offend."
