Protest against Rouhani’s rapprochement with the US becoming institutionalized; US flags burned, Death to US changed

Monday, 7 October 2013

A group of student Basij members (the volunteer arm of the IRGC) announced the establishment of a “Committee to Protect Iran’s Interests”. According to the students, US policy towards the Iranian people has not really changed and Rouhani should not conduct an independent foreign policy claiming that he has the support of the Supreme Leader. The Committee intends to continue protests against the president. “The Committee” published a statement expressing its appreciation of the independent demonstration of Iranians protesting statements made by American officials. The statement further said that “those who are rushing to embrace the US are today in a position of power and are justifying the citizens’ economic welfare in order to achieve their old desire. They are also trying to silence their critics through various means and erroneous articles such as a security threat. Thankfully, Iranian citizens are also saying no to everyone enthusiastically supporting ties with the US by burning flags of that country across Iran, and by shouting Death to the US, thereby sending a message to those who want to take advantage of the economy as an excuse to build a bridge to the heart of imperialism that this people will protect to its last breath the values and goals of the Islamic revolution and will not grant officials approval to withdraw and surrender.”
