Opposition Protests in 2011
Iranian protestors aligned with the opposition and Green Movement have demonstrated in Tehran and other cities on multiple days in February and March 2011. These protests are the first significant anti-regime protests since late 2009. Recent activity indicates that the grievances of the embattled Iranian opposition continue to build and that the Iranian authorities' systematic campaign against the opposition has not entirely suppressed the broader opposition movement.
The Critical Threats Project will monitor opposition protests and activity in 2011. For data and summaries of protest activities, please see the Iran Protests map on criticalthreats.org.
