During a visit to Bushehr city late December, Ahmadinejad had said that Iran suffered from "mismanagement" and that current President Hassan Rouhani and his government "believe that they own the land and that the people are an ignorant society", the newspaper reported. "While other countries stay silent, it's important that the United States speak up loudly against this government crackdown". But, the success of this movement this time around will also require timely backing from the United States and the global community.

"Without an embassy on the ground we are really behind, especially European but also Asian countries, who are trying very cautiously to reintegrate the Iranian market", he says.

Numerous activists appeared to be young, disenfranchised working-class Iranians, giving the uprising a wholly different tenor to the Green Movement of 2009, which saw millions take to the streets and was driven by the middle classes.

During a speech on Tuesday, commemorating protests against the Shah of Iran in 1978, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said "Revolution politically uprooted the enemy and now the enemy continues these attacks but always fails and can not achieve its goals".

"The Iranian ongoing protests and state of unrest will be contained by a government announcement of a series of economic and social procedures and policies in the country", said Medhat Hammad, professor of Iranian and Gulf studies at Egypt's Tanta University.

On Thursday, the U.S. Treasury Department sanctioned five Iran-based business entities for aiding Iran's effort to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles. To date, 3,700 people have been arrested for protesting, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Iceland requires companies to give men, women equal pay for equal work
As the Icelandic Women's Rights Association notes , equal pay for equal work has been mandated by Icelandic laws since 1961. But here's what gives the ruling some weight: Companies with over 25 employees that don't follow through will be fined .

US President Trump has tweeted his criticism of the Iranian government and has encouraged the protests.

USA officials and analysts studying Iran say believe conservative opponents of President Hassan Rouhani, a relative moderate within Iran's clerically overseen government, started the demonstrations in Mashhad, but quickly lost control of them. An assault in June by the Islamic State group targeting Tehran - a rare terror attack in the Iranian capital - also galvanized support by the public, which fears a return of the bombings and unrest that immediately followed the 1979 Islamic Revolution. "Within a week, protests were held spontaneously in 82 cities across Iran". Also, Rouhani said in last week that the people of Iran were free to protest peacefully, but rejected protesting by violence.

"This systemic economic mismanagement has its roots in the political system, and it grows worse every day".

In the past few days, Iranian authorities said the protests are waning and on Sunday, Iran's Revolutionary Guard claimed the nation and its security forces had ended the wave of unrest.

Finally, it would give a green light for Iran to break out of the deal's nuclear shackles, accelerating a nuclear crisis in the Middle East when we already have our hands full with one on the Korean peninsula. "We in Iran are prepared for any scenario".
