In marking the 30th anniversary of the storming of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran thousands of pro-government activists marched to the old embassy and shouted “Death To America!” but in contrast to that mass public display thousands of opposition activists the Greens and moderates marched down a Tehran boulevard to central Haft-e-Tir Square shouting “Death To The Dictator!” It has been months since the opposition protestors have been in mass in the streets since the brutal crackdown by para military forces of the Iranian government regime after June’s disputed elections. The marchers of the opposition were eventually met with force as motorcycle club wielding thugs of the regime beat and chased opposition protesters off the street.
