May Day brings protest to Iran

By Aussiegirl

So why aren't these protests being covered by the MSM? Be sure to click on the link and see the other photos.

For an explanation of this protest, see this article. Scroll down to this headline: May Day workers rally brings out tens of thousand and exposes the regime's lies . Here's a paragraph from this article that explains the reason for the protest: The Organization of the Defense of Women?s Rights in Iran has also issued a statement in which they have stressed: ? The fact that the regime, in an attempt to repress a massive workers day protest organized by and for the workers, has boasted that the workers have in fact already organized a ceremony in front of the ex-U.S. embassy!! We women and men workers of Iran cannot be used by the Islamic regime for their propaganda and whims and we would like to declare that what we need is jobs, shelter, food?not nuclear weapons and fuel! If they spent the money and budgets on long-range missiles and nuclear bombs on helping revive bankrupted factories, creating jobs for us workers, the situation in the country would not be as deplorable and dire?the multitudes of unemployed workers and jobless youths would not be wondering the streets aimlessly and hopelessly. The cog wheels of the factories would have been operating and together, united, we would have made Iran prosperous.? :

Are American and European reporters in Iran covering today’s protests at all? If not, why not? Thanks to Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi for sending these photos of protesting Iranian workers and students.

Strange we haven`t heard about this!

Is it a coincidence that this follows on the heels of our giving financial assistence to dissident groups? Hmmm?
