Iranian VP accuses opponents of planning anti-Rouhani protests

Thousands protest in Iran in anti-government demonstrations

Videos posted on social media showed some protesters in Mashhad chanting slogans including "Death to the dictator" and "Death to Rohani", with police using water cannons to push back the crowds.

One of the major centers of protest was in the western Iranian city of Kermanshah where in addition to high prices and unemployment, people have recently suffered a devastating natural disaster.

Friday, December 29, 2017, courageous women and men in various cities across Iran took to the streets for the second consecutive day to protest skyrocketing prices of basic staples.

The governor of Mashhad, Mohammad Rahim Norouzian, said that "the demonstration was illegal but the police dealt with people with tolerance".

Jahangiri also warned that such moves will have consequences for the initiators, saying the initiators of the political protests will not be able to control the situation when these movements grow larger. "Forget Syria, think of us" read the protesters' banners.

A number of people were held for trying to damage public property, he said.

Prices on many essential products, including eggs, have increased up to 40 percent in recent days.

He has succeeded in bringing inflation down to ten per cent, however, the economy is still struggling from lack of investment, with unemployment officially at 12 per cent, likely much higher in real terms, according to analysts.
