I think, second, some of the skeptics of the protests last June said, well, these are only the modern elitist youth of northern Tehran who are protesting. And what we saw yesterday, that were -- there were protests throughout the country, not only in Tehran, not only in northern Tehran.
And if you saw some of the images, there were also a lot of the traditional clashes, women wearing the chador, the -- kind of the more traditional veil, men with beards. So, six months later, this protest movement is still going very strong.>>>
