ImageTehran, Jun. 24 – Thousands of Iranians rallied on Wednesday late afternoon outside the Majlis, or Parliament, in the capital Tehran against the country’s theocratic rulers.

State security forces attacked the demonstrators and ordered people to leave the protest in Baharestan Square in central Tehran. They also fired tear gas to force the protestors to disperse.

An announcement was made on the megaphone that protestors who do not leave will be fired upon.

Several hundred security forces – apparently members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) – besieged the protestors and repeatedly attacked them.

Paramilitary bassijis violently attacked protesters in nearby streets, and security forces threw at least one person off a pedestrian overpass there. One woman was badly beaten in a nearby street. It was not immediately clear if she survived the attack.

Protests were also reported in Enghelab Square and in its vicinity.
