Street Battles in Tehran

June 20, 2009 by  

According to a post on the English-language website of the Worker-communist Party of Iran, the party’s press centre reports that “over a million people have come into the streets of Tehran. People are refusing to disperse and there are street battles going on right now with the repressive security forces of the regime in many parts of Tehran. Hundreds have been arrested.

“Streets people are in include Azadi Square, Laleh Park, Fatemi Street, Keshavarz Carriageway and streets surrounding Azadi Square.

“The slogans are ‘Down with Dictator,’ and ‘Down with Islamic regime’…”

Stephane Julien of Bataille Socialiste has notified us of a YouTube video of what looks like shootings in Tehran.
