Default Iran : petrol price hike ,Supreme Leader condemns 'hooligan' protesters




[Iran's Supreme Leader
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said
he supports a fuel price rise that
has sparked protests across the country.
The Ayatollah blamed "hooligans"
and counter-revolutionaries
for violence that has been
witnessed in several cities.
At least one person is confirmed dead
in clashes with police but reports
suggest the number could be higher.
Officials have warned of a tougher
response if "illegal" actions continue.
Protests erupted on Friday after the
government unexpectedly announced
it was rationing petrol and
removing subsidies - sending prices up by 50%.

The measures are the latest sign
of pressure on the Iranian economy
after the re-imposition of US sanctions.
The government says the changes
will free up money to help the poor.]

Glib responses aside it's clear there's a reason for the desist on and this should be the focus.

'US sanctions were re-imposed last year after President Donald Trump abandoned the landmark nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers.

The sanctions have led to a sharp downturn in Iran's economy, pushing the value of its currency to record lows, quadrupling its annual inflation rate, driving away foreign investors and triggering protests.'

sanctions are external influencers, it doesn't stop iran producing petrol, and you would have thought they had rather a lot of the stuff hanging around in buckets here and there

I think the iran leadership want their people to suffer so they can blame the sanctions

I feel kind of sorry for the protesters. If they're caught they face imprisonment and torture. As always, it's the ordinary people who suffer while the regime enjoys being more equal.
