Protests in Mashhad and Shahrud
Today in Mashhad, outside the Caspian Financial Institution, plundered families have gathered to tell the government they demand their savings back. There have been similar protests and gathering outside Caspian’s branches in different cities over the months, yet authorities have done nothing to pay the people back. Today’s gathering in Mashhad followed another recent act of protest in the Atlas Market, where stores closed in sign of solidarity with the wide-spread bazaar strike.
Also for the second day in Shahrud, people are again on the streets rallying by hundreds against the government plan to transfer the Roads & Transport Borough to Semnan Province.
