Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Iran, Ethnicity & Race, Ideas, Protest

Razeno reports about his conservations with people in Tabriz about the cartoon affair [1]. The blogger says all people whom he talked, considered the cartoon just a pretext to revolt. They said they do not want to be separated from Iran and they want to be respected like other places such as Meshad, Isfahan and Rafsanjan [2] (Persian). The blogger adds during the riots Farsi speaking population stayed at home and there were rumours that Lebanese Hezbollah [3] have been sent by government to repress the demonstration.
