UK: London demo condemns British ‘appeasement’ of Iranian regime

Around 100 protesters held a rally outside Downing Street in London on Thursday, condemning the Iranian regime and their crackdown on anti-government protests, as well as the UK government’s response. Protesters demanded the resignation of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, with the Director of Association of Anglo-Iranian Women in the UK, Laila Jazayeri, suggesting it was time for change in... Еще government policy towards the Islamic Republic. “It’s time for them to wake up. 40 years of appeasement policy towards Iranian regime proved to be a failure. Who paid the price? Iranian people,” said Jazayeri outside the Prime Minister’s residence. At least 21 people have died in anti-government protests against rising food prices, high unemployment and alleged corruption. President Hassan Rouhani acknowledged the public's anger over Iran's flagging economy, but vowed to crackdown on lawbreakers. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has also blamed the recent unrest on «the enemies of Iran.» The latest waves of protests are the most significant show of dissent in Iran since the pro-reform Green Movement of 2009.
