Iranian protests

Watching SBS World News last night their reporter on the ground was trying to paint a picture of Iran under siege. He said Tehranis were showing their outrage at the election results by blocking the streets with their cars and coalescing in groups in the middle of roads.

The only problem with that description was that Tehranis do that every day of the week. And while the election and the protests could well be very significant this isn't the first protest in Iran: check out what happens when you try and impose petrol rationing.
