Videos: Mother Of A Green Martyr Chants "Death to Khamenei"


Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is increasingly coming under direct attacks by the Iranian opposition protesters. Many protesters now chants harsh slogans against Khamenei whom they perceive as the ultimate ruling leader who has given orders to suppress the green opposition movement.

Tens of thousands of Iranians have come out on to the streets of Tehran and other major cities for the first mass protests against the Iranian government in two months.  Shouting slogans, the protestors denounced Ahmadinejad as stealing the June presidential election: "Liar, liar, where is your 63 percent?" They also demanded the release of thousands of people arrested in government crackdowns on previous rallies against Iran's contested presidential election results. Demonstrations also took place in other major Iranian cities including Isfahan, Mashhad, Qom, Shiraz, and Tabriz.

19-year-old Sohrab Arabi is one of the known victims of the backlash from mass street protests that followed the disputed presidential vote.

His body was returned to his family on July 12 and, one day later, he was laid to rest at Tehran's Behesht Zahra Cemetery.
