Iranian Protests Show Opposition Is Still Strong

Tens of thousands of demonstrators poured into the streets of Tehran again on Wednesday to protest against the government
and what they believe was a stolen presidential election last June.

Wednesday marked the 30th anniversary of the seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. The government
traditionally uses the anniversary to promote popular enmity toward the United States.

But this year, much of the hostility of the crowds was turned against Iran's Islamic leaders, and there were sharp clashes
with police.
