Massive Protest Against Iranian Regime in Tabriz (Video!!)

IT WAS A YEAR AGO TODAY… That ethnic protests broke out across northern Iran against the regime. Tens of Thousands of protesters marched in Tabriz. Later a few of the protesters hurled stones and torched buildings in violent demonstrations enraged by an offensive cockroach cartoon that slammed the Azeri minority.

Police used tear gas to disperse the Azeri protesters who attended the massive rally in Tabriz some 600 kms (360 miles) northwest of Tehran, on Monday May 22, 2006.
