Iranians have taken to the streets across the country to mark the anniversary of the takeover of the American embassy in Tehran, nearly 40 years ago.
Thousands of people, mostly school and university students, rallied on Saturday morning across the country to express their anger towards ongoing U.S. hegemonic policies across the world, especially toward the Islamic Republic.
On November 4, 1979, in less than a year after the victory of the Islamic Revolution, dozens of Iranian university students seized the U.S. embassy in Tehran, which as they said had become a center of espionage and planning to overthrow the newly established Islamic Republic in Iran.
Each year, demonstrations are hold throughout the country to commemorate the event, which ended diplomatic relations between Tehran and Washington.
Today, demonstrators released a statement, condemning U.S. President Donald Trump’s aggressive remarks about Iran, describing the U.S. as Iran’s enemy number one.
Meanwhile, a new poll result has been released, showing that the U.S. is still untrustworthy in the eyes of the vast majority of the Iranian people.
According to the data released by the Iranians Polling Center, 60.6% of respondents said they did not trust the U.S. government at all and 21.3% had very low trust in the U.S.
