White House Urges Release of Political Prisoners in Iran, Including Protesters

"In exporting a product, what is very important, is paying especial attention to the demands and needs of the end-users and keeping their trust in the product", said Rouhani adding that a product with Iranian brand being trusted in the world is an honour for us. While many Iranians have thanked U.S. President Donald Trump for his support, the Trump administration plans to continue to enforce sanctions against the nation and does appear that he supports a regime change.

The people have taken to the streets to protest against policies of Khamenei and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, as well as against unemployment, poverty, and the rising cost of living.

This latest wave of protests in Iran will most likely be resolved sooner or later, but will force the authorities to pay more attention to the pulse of the Iranian streetA fully fledged revolution? From the other side, it is widely believed that the hard-liners were the ones who initially stoked the protests to embarrass Rouhani, only to see the demonstrations turn against the entire ruling establishment. "What they are asking for is help with their communications to get the word out to the world about what the regime is doing to them in the country during the protests".

"We're a bit disappointed that the European Union has not taken a more definitive stance in supporting those voices within the country that are calling for reform", he said. "However, I do not think the feeling of dissent toward the regime and level of disgust for the political and economic situation has gone away". "He made many promises four years ago, but he hasn't achieved them".

The demonstrators in Iran mobilized against issues including the country's economic woes.

In 2009, Americans watched the people of Iran rise up to claim their birthright of freedom. "They came out due to their basic needs; and since the establishment has serious problems on the economic front, it doesn't have the ability to respond to these needs".

The protesters were Red State and Tea Party types, demanding their own version of "Come Home, Iran" and "Iran First!"

"The geographical scope of these protests were unprecedented in Iran's recent history".
