Power blackouts trigger protests

People in Tehran took to the streets on Sunday evening to protest the continued electricity outage caused by poor management and the government’s destructive policies.

Rallies took place in different parts of Tehran, including Tehran Pars and Baharestan. The protests quickly took on a political nature as protesters chanted “Down with Khamenei” and “Down with the dictator” and “Down with the Islamic Republic,” calling for the ouster of the ruling mullahs and their supreme leader Ali Khamenei.
