Iranians Cast Their Votes on The Streets
As the religious dictatorship ruling Iran struggles to heat up the mood of a delusion called “presidential election”, the Iranian people express their opinion in very different forms and actions. In many cities, posters and banners of the regime’s candidates are burned and torn apart. As such Ebrahim Raisi ordered his campaign staff to quickly collect all his banners and posters across the country and to prevent any new printing and installation of new banners.
Also, many young Iranians courageously go out on the streets and use the “free speech tribune” that some regime’s campaign advertisers and PR people have set up, to address the public about their true opinion about the regime and call upon the people to boycott the election and say ‘no’ to the entire regime.
A young man in #Iran says he won't vote in the presidential elections because "there's no difference between the candidates".
