From SMCCDI: Symbols of Islamic regime set on fire.

Thousands of pictures of the Islamic regime's leaders  were set on fire, by maverick Iranians, at the occasion of the banned "Tchahar-Shanbe Soori" (Fire Fiest). In places, the constitution of the Islamic regime was also thrown in fire bushes with the "Hurray" of maverick Iranians.

Reports from several areas of the Capital, such as Sadeghie and Mohseni,  or from cities, such as, Esfahan, Ahvaz, Mahabad, Hamedan and Shahin-Shar, are all stating about some of the regime's symbols set on fire.

The Movement issued, yesterday, a communique by asking to "transform into ash the symbols of the regime and to give the ash to the wind." The call was broadcasted by most popular abroad based media for inside the country.

This year's Fire Fiest demos have been qualified as unprecedented. many Iranians intended to defy the Islamic regime and to reject the religious ban of the event.
