UK: «No Islam in power!» — London protest slams Iranian government

Around 250 people staged a demonstration in front of the Iranian Embassy in London in solidarity with countrywide anti-government protests on Saturday. People held placards reading «Stop murder and executions in Iran», «If you don't let us dream, we won't let you sleep» and «No to theocracy. Yes to democracy.» «We want to get rid of Islam in power and we don't want any factions of new... Еще governments,» said Thalia, one of the protesters. Gittan, another demonstrator agreed saying, «This regime has been killing people for the past 39 years and I'm not surprised so it's been happening for 39 years and now the whole world is watching it.» 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.
