Iran’s towns hit by protests and closures as currency plummets

As the Iranian currency rial plunged to 90,000 against the US dollar on Monday, protesting crowds and shop owners poured out into city streets, especially on the Jomhouri (Republic) Avenue, a stone’s throw away from Tehran’s Forex market. Cell phone sellers and other shopkeepers said their goods had become too expensive for buyers due to the exchange rate. User-generated videos received by Radio Farda show buyers urging store owners to shut down and protest as the crowd pours into the street, with others joining them.

    Now even camels and goats are too expensive for the mullahs to buy.

      That means that the Fagatollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Generals will have to cut back on their sexual activity.

      Too Bad, but those are the consequences of promoting foreign adventures while the national currency collapses!

    Presumably the iranian admin is printing volumes of banknotes to finance their pet projects and cronies. That is the normal cause of inflation, official gov’t “counterfeiting”.

    Iran and China are working towards a Iran-China petro-currency to challenge the USD. I hope that they both fail from such a venture. The people of Iran must overthrow their Mullocracy if they want to normalize their lives and share in the wealth of Iran. The Islamic fascists are evil, hateful and bent on world domination through terror and war. That was okay for Obama and is okay with the present day Democrats and EU, but it is not okay with civilized non-leftist, non-Islamist people.
