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.
