>it is very good that the attention is finally drawn to this issue. You
>should know that the part of Iran known as Southern Azerbaijan was
>initially a part of the united country, but in 1828 Azerbaijan was divided
>between Russia and Iran. The northern part that went to Russia is now an
>independent state, and the southern part still belongs to Iran. While
>there are from 25 to 35 million ethnic Azeris in Iran, there is no single
>school teaching in this language. So the anger of Azeris, whose rights in
>Iran have been systematically oppressed, is easy to understand.
>For a long time they have been facing utter discrimination and often
>violent repressions by Iranian governments determined to destroy their
>cultural and ethnic identity. Recently one of Iran's official newspapers
>has published cartoons insulting and humiliating Azerbaijanis, explicitly
>comparing them to cockroaches and discussing ways to eliminate them. That
>became the last straw in the constant discrimination of Azerbaijanis. A
>series of mass demonstrations of protest have been taking place in the
>largest cities of Iranian Azerbaijan: Tabriz, Zanjan, Urmia, Ardebil,
>Maraga etc. as well as in Tehran
>Iran authorities has already used violence against the demonstrators,
>around 20 people were already killed. Unfortunately, these protests are
>not very well covered in mass media.
