Pro-govt rallies in Iran as protesters lie low

Huge pro-regime rallies in Iran

The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. "The watching!" he continued. But he did so in a more low-key way, concerned that the Iran regime would accuse the United States of meddling in the country's affairs and mount an anti-American campaign to rally its supporters.

On Friday, as the protests spread, Trump tweeted that the Iranian government should respect people's rights, including the right to express themselves.

Some protesters chant slogans against the government and the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and a prominent judge on Tuesday warned that some could face death penalty trials.

Many Iranians resent the country's costly foreign interventions in places such as Syria and Iraq, and want their leaders to create jobs at home, where youth unemployment reached 29 percent previous year.

Iranian state media yesterday aired pro-government demonstrations in cities across the country after a week of protests and unrest over the nation's poor economy - a move apparently seeking to calm nerves amid clashes that have killed 21 people.

Through Khamenei has not yet addressed the uprising in a speech, other regime leaders have indicated that the government will continue to come down harshly on the protesters.

Ariannejad said he always tells his relatives to stay away from any violence if they take part in the protests.

"Iran's security and stability depend on its own people, who - unlike the peoples of of Trumps regional "bffs" - have the right to vote and to protest", Zarif tweeted.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani sought to downplay the significance of the protests in a cabinet session Sunday.

Donald Trump has praised the demonstrations in Iran as a sixth day of protests got under way on Tuesday in political unrest that has already claimed at least 20 lives.

During his weekly meeting January 2 with the families of those killed in the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s, Khamenei said that enemies of the Islamic Republic of Iran are using the protests to strike a blow against the government.

The mercurial president offered no specifics, but a senior administration official said that the White House was "looking across the board" at sanction authorities allowing Trump to target organizations or individuals involved in human rights violations, censorship or preventing free assembly.

"In recent days, enemies of Iran used different tools including cash, weapons, politics and intelligence apparatus to create troubles for the Islamic Republic", he said in statement, according to Reuters.

Violent demonstrations have rocked Iran since Thursday last week, leaving more than 20 people dead, with protests that started over the economy turning against the Islamic regime as a whole.

On Tuesday, US envoy to the UN Nikki Haley branded as "complete nonsense" Iran's suggestion that external enemies were fomenting the unrest. According to Reformist newspaper Ghanoon Daily, Rouhani had recorded a message but the hard-line Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting - the nation's state TV - refused to broadcast it.
