Protest at Visit of Former Minister of Culture Saffar Mohammad-Hossein Saffar-Harandi


Reader Comments (3)

I am surprised Harandi, Raesaii, and other regime hacks keep providing a lightning rod for protests by showing up at the universities. These protests, while seemingly preaching to the choir because they are all on universities, maintain the momentum of the opposition and over the past few months the maintenance of the Green movement's momentum has completed the separation between the Government and the Governed. The secret is out, everybody now knows that there is a small clique of hypocritical "hard-liners" that are ruling over everybody else. Once that is said out in the open the regime's days are numbered.

I am especially happy to see the Harandi protest from today because obviously he has given up on speaking to young men at universities because they are too determined and shout "Marg Bar Dictator" and "Ya Hossein Mir Hossein". So he spoke to only females thinking they would be easier to cow or at least more quiet/acquiescent. This video proves otherwise.

that's exactly what I thought, watching these amazing videos. Are they naive, do they think they can persuade with their conferences, or what ?

@ pessimist

Maybe they're just foolishly arrogant and don't realize that they're playing with fire.
