Protesters chant ‘Khamenei is a murderer … illegitimate ruler’ in fresh protests seeking his resignation
Protesters took to streets in Tehran chanting “Khamenei is a murderer and Khamenei is an illegitimate ruler” on Jan. 11 after the Iranian military admitted to shooting down the Ukranian plane that carried at least 130 Iranian citizens.
The news of the protesters openly chanting slogans against Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, whom Iran designates as the “Supreme Leader” was confirmed by Al Markazia, a Lebanese Central New Agency.
Faranak Amidi, a Women’s Affairs Journalist with the BBC World Service, shared a video from one of the protest sites on her Twitter on Saturday. The protesters in the video chanted in chorus: “Today is a day to mourn. The abandoned Iranians are mourning today.”
