Handfuls of protest in Iran since June, reason to officials inaction
Just four days into the start of another month, protests are taking place everywhere in Iran wrapping up different threads of society. The question is why can’t Tehran take any action. Fixing the economic disaster would appear to be a priority for a government that faces daily challenges, even strikes lasting more than two weeks in the case of truck drivers from 31 provinces. This goes to show there is a deeper cut that requires vast surgery like a rotten egg that is no longer eatable. People are sending the message that the time has come for complete regime change.
