The protests in Iran and the demonstration in support of the protests across from the Iranian regime’s embassy in London has received extensive coverage from the British media.
The Ealing Gazette has said, “Ealing-based Iranians have spent a week protesting for democratic change and have vowed to continue until their voice is heard.”
It said people have been outside the Iranian regime’s Embassy in Prince’s Gate, Kensington, including many from the borough – the second largest community of Iranians in the UK, after the London Borough of Barnet.
The peaceful protest was called by Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, the paper said.
Church of England newspaper also wrote that the Iranian people have taken to the streets chanting anti-regime slogans, including “death to Khamenei,” referring the regime’s Supreme Leader.
Many of the religious minorities in Iran support the struggle against the regime’s brutality. The paper posted a video of the protests in London on its website.
Another newspaper, Kensington & Chelsea chronicle, wrote, that protesters have gathered outside the Iranian regime embassy in Kensington, calling for regime change.
“The lobby in Kensington Court has been going for more than a week involving supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran.”
“They have called on the UK government to cut its ties with the leading Mullah regime, and to shut down the embassy until changes are made in Iran,” it added.
On protestor said, “The UK should immediately shut down the Iranian regime’s embassy and expel its ambassador.”
Hampstead and Highgate wrote the Iranian opposition is protesting bravely against one of the most brutal and oppressive regimes in the world.
This is a regime, it said, that imprisons, tortures and publicly hangs people merely for expressing dissent or supporting Camp Ashraf residents.
York Press wrote, “After the uprisings in Libya and Egypt, it’s worth remembering that much of the inspiration for these popular movements comes from Iran.”
It said the opposition was brutally suppressed there after the mullahs’ elections in 2009.
“However, the Iranian opposition is still alive and kicking, largely due to the example of the thousands of pro-democracy activists who took refuge in Camp Ashraf in next door Iraq.”
