Iran's victory over N. Korea leads to mass celebration and unrest

SMCCDI (Information Service):

Iran's victory of 1-0 over N. Korea's soccer team has resulted in a mass celebration, expression of joy and unrest despite all official injunctions and massive security presence.

Clashes happened at the end of the game at Azadi ('Freedom') Stadium as militiamen intended to stop happy fans from expressing joy. Orders were given that fans should avoid being joyful as it's the anniversary of the death of the regime's founder.

Other reports are stating about sporadic clashes in several areas of the Capital as thousands of Iranians are getting into streets and main squares, such as, Haft-Hoze, Tajrish, Toopkhaneh and Madar. Teharns' suburbs of Karaj, Rey and Eslamshahr are also scenes of early joy and sporadic unrests.

In most cases the clashes are happening as militiamen intend to stop mass celebration.

Girls have been seen taking off their mandatory veil and dancing.

Heavy traffic jam are forming in Capital's main avenues which will create serious complication for regime agents to control the crowd.

Sporadic clashes have also been reported from cities, such as, Esfahan, Shiraz, Hamdean and Oroomiah (former Reza-ie).

The night will be long and is just beginning.
Update: The mainstream media appears to be ignoring the anti-regime demonstrations following the win by Iran in its soccer match with North Korea. When will the mainstream media risk offending the regime and report the news?

Welcome to the Waterworld.

Here I will share with you my thoughts on music, literature and politics.

I am specifically interested in the treasury of Parsi literature.

Iran, and the movement for democratic change have my special interest too.

While singing, reading, writing and thinking, I like to hear the Voices of Pars.
