Where are the protests taking places in Iran? The Youth seems to have taken the streets and every hour more and more cities are joining the protest movement. Iran is known to have a very strong security apparatus with notably the Basijis, a paramilitary militias that have strong roots in the civil society. The real question is : Is this movement just a small social protest that will last less than a week or are we assisting to something bigger like the Tammarod movement?
