INU - The mass Iranian protests that started in late December and continued through much of January remain topics of vigorous debate and analysis both within the Islamic Republic and in global policies circles. On Friday, Iran Wire helped to keep them in the headlines with its own analysis of the slogans and motives representing that protest movement. It has been widely reported that the first demonstrations, in the city of Mashhad, were driven largely by economic grievances but that the scope of the nationwide uprising quickly broadened to include a number of social and political demands, including explicit demands for regime change.
