A popular uprising sweeping Iranian cities has now spread to squares and football stadiums amid continuing anger over political and economic policies of the Iranian regime.

In a strong sign of the continuation of protests in Iran, thousands of people chanted slogans against the country's regime such as "seath to the dictator" in Naghsh-e Jahan Stadium in Isfahan, which hosted the Sabahan and Thub Ahan game.

The protesters confirmed that they were united in their calls until they acquire their legitimate rights.

As soon as the masses began to chant "death to the dictator", riot police and internal security personnel began to deploy at the stadium in anticipation of increased protests.
