Tehran, Iran, Mar. 14 – Iran’s paramilitary police have launched a massive crackdown in Iranian towns and cities to prevent people from turning Tuesday evening’s annual “fire festival” into organised anti-government protests.

The following is a photo of a young man who was detained by Iran’s State Security Forces (SSF) for taking part in a demonstration outside the headquarters of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps in the western city of Khorramabad earlier in the day.

The photo was sent to Iran Focus by activists inside Iran.

During the festival, known as ‘chaharshanbeh souri’ – literally, Feast of Wednesday – people jump over bonfires to “drive away evil”. Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, however, Iran’s theocratic leaders have made strenuous efforts to stamp out the festivities, but to no avail. In recent years, there have been extensive clashes between festive crowds and the security forces deployed to prevent street celebrations.
