Hope Lies In The Proles - Iranian Version

. . .The riot broke out in Tehran on the weekend when the Iranian Chastity Police attempted to arrest a young woman they said was inappropriately dressed. The young woman resisted arrest, so the police started beating her. This prompted a bystander to come to her aid, and the police started beating him up, which brought dozens of people to the scene. They began rioting and setting rubbish on fire.

More from The Archer, with video.

Trés cool vid from Rachid. Reminds me of 1973 when a Kurdish Turk record shop owner in Van regaled me and my wife with Carlos Santana's Caravanserai album and chai for a beautiful night. And Joe Strummer is the finest gent to walk this planet. May he rest in peace. He would be proud of this vid.

Ciao for niao.
