"Flag burning" marks Iran-US hostage anniversary
"....On November 4, 1979, in the wake of Iran's Islamic revolutions, a group of Islamist students stormed the US embassy in Tehran and held its staff hostage there for 444 days. The crisis led to the suspension of diplomatic ties between Washington and Tehran...."
Here are also some Photos of this rally...

Today was Aban’s 13, the 24th anniversary of the seizure of the U.S. Embassy that is called Students day!
So like other years, there was a rally & doing childish things like burning USA flag & symbols & chanting foolishly.
The protesters passed the street that is near our school, & as I saw there were comparatively a small number of people & most of them were school boys who were forced to go; they didn’t give a damn to the demonstration & were just laughing & having fun!
Actually, although that event in 1979 was meant to be an action against Imperialism, but changed to a support for a dictator & criminal regime.
You know; the repetition of History sometimes seems really frightening!
For sure nowadays students are mush different from the ones in 1997 & have other ideas about what happened those days. But What if in future, students find nowadays students’ movements foolish & again get in to more trouble!
