In December 2017 tens of thousands of people began protesting in cities throughout Iran. Analysts believe the protests were caused by high unemployment among young people and budget cuts proposed by the Iranian government a month earlier. The cuts included cutting gasoline subsidies, reducing cash subsidies to the poor, adding car registration fees and implementing a new tax on everyone who leaves the country. Protesters have also expressed frustration with the Iranian government’s foreign policy spending. Iran has recently given billions of dollars to Palestine, Hezbollah and rebels in Syrian. The protests are the largest since demonstrations took place in 2009 when the Iranian Revolutionary Guard responded by killed dozens of protesters. See recent Iranian Protesters news
