NYT: Iran President Facing Revival of Students’ Ire

Nice the NYT noticing.

The protest, punctuated by shouts of “Death to the dictator,” was the first widely publicized outcry against Mr. Ahmadinejad, one that was reflected Friday in local elections, where voters turned out in droves to vote for his opponents.

The students’ complaints largely mirrored public frustrations over the president’s crackdown on civil liberties, his blundering economic policies and his harsh oratory against the West, which they fear will isolate the country.

If someone in America said Death to the "Decider" they would be arrested. As these students yelled in Iran.

Who lives in a free country? Hell we don’t have the right to assessable anymore either.
