iran-2009-tehran-islamic-revolution-un

The 30th Anniversary of the Victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran was celebrated amidst the international sanction against Iran, due to Iranian controversial nuclear program. The embargo has caused economic trouble in the country. It also raised the anti-US sentiment in Iran as the world superpower insisted that all other countries in the world should follow its steps in sanctioning Iran. US is known as “the Great Satan” in Iran, and the anti-US sentiment is even stronger during the remembrance of the Revolution. Thousands of people, including underage children, attended the remembrance parade which more resembled a political rally, condemning USA, Israel, and UN. Among the protesters is this uniformed boy, putting his toy pistol on a doll of the satan-faced Goddess of Liberty wearing shirt with inscription of ‘UN’ inside an Israeli logo of Star of David.
