This is a video that was recorded today at Vanak Sq. The chant is “Esteqlal, Azadi, Jomhurie Irani’. Translated the chant is a request for “Independence, freedom, and Iranian republic.“ This chant is different from the popular chant during Ayatollah Khomeini’s era in which people demanded “Independence, freedom and Islamic republic.”
[This post has been updated to correct the translation. Thanks to all the commenters who caught this slip-up!]
