Our partners at the BBC are reporting that "eyewitnesses in Tehran say that thousands of people, many dressed in black, have gathered in a square in the south of the city." Joining The Takeaway this morning and following the protests closely is Professor Hamid Dabashi, Professor of Iranian Studies at Columbia and the author of Iran: A People Interrupted and Islamic Liberation Theology: Resisting the Empire.
