Protests outside the Iranian Embassy in London

These protests used to occur on a daily basis but due to a police request now take place twice a week opposite the Islamic Republic of Iran's Embassy at 16 Princes Gate, London at the following times:

Thursdays: 18:00 - 21:00
Sundays: 16:00 - 19:00

    Don't be ridiculous, the flag of the Lion and Sun is not the Pahlavi flag. It is an ancient Iranian symbol, and is not tied to any specific Shah or Regime.

    Furthermore the flag is used by ANTI SHAH groups e.g. Worker's Communist Party of Iran, the People's Mojahedin Organisation, National Council of Resistance of Iran, etc. It is also the flag of the Iranian National Front and Mossadegh who were not fans of the Shah's autocracy.

    Furthermore: I don't criticise Iran, I criticise its primitive government which is NOT representative of its people :)
