Protesters held holding placards, depicting spoiled portraits of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei reading: «Dictator.» «Austrian politics must be on the side of the... Еще people, who are on the street, requesting freedom and democracy in Iran. And not on the side of a corrupt regime, a regime which is violating human rights,» said Aziz Iynanlou, one of the protesters. Yesterday, Washington called an emergency United Nations Security Council meeting to discuss anti-government protests in Iran on Friday at a UNSC session in New York City. At least 21 people have died in anti-government protests since Thursday with rallies against rising food prices, unemployment and alleged corruption. President Hassan Rouhani acknowledged the public's anger over Iran's flagging economy but vowed to crack down on lawbreakers.
