Iran has become a sick parody of how revolutions devour themselves
Police used batons and tear gas, according to the witnesses. There were also unconfirmed reports of security forces using live rounds.
The violence came on the day that Iran holds an annual commemoration for the killing of three students in 1953.
So the regime that got its inspiration from the 1953 coup is now suppressing students for commemorating the same event.
Orwell strikes again:
Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
After the first generation of revolutionaries age and become comfortable in their positions, they become the very thing they rebelled against.
