The economy in Iran has struggled recently with youth unemployment at 25% and inflation rising 10% previous year.
What began on December 28 in the city of Mashhad as a protest against a weak economy and surging food prices has spread across Iran, with demonstrators criticizing Iran's government and supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Numerous videos showed some crowds of people chanting "Death to the dictator!" walking through the streets of Tehran. They had outnumbered protesters at the university the day before, although online videos showed significant protests around parts of central Tehran later in the evening.
Unverified footage on social media claims to show thousands marching through the western cities of Khorramabad, Zanjan and Ahvaz. Reza's Pahlavi dynasty was overthrown in 1979 by religious leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
Reza, a citizen of Mashhad, told the Guardian a lot of people believe the initial protests that started in the city on Thursday were encouraged by the anti-Rouhani camp, most notably the supporters of hardline cleric Ebrahim Raisi, but it "got out of hand". Protesters are largely people in their 20s complaining about economic hardships. "The world is watching!" he said in a tweet last week. "Our economy needs an operation".
An 11-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man were killed in the town of Khomeinishahr, while a member of Iran's paramilitary Revolutionary Guard was killed in the town of Najafabad.

It remains hard for journalists to piece together what's happening beyond the capital, especially as the government has blocked both the photo-sharing app Instagram and the messaging app Telegram, which protesters have used to organize their demonstrations and share footage. The best gift America can give the Iranian people is a digital lifeline, so humanity can witness their courageous struggle and encourage them to prevail.
Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, accused the United States, Britain and Saudi Arabia of being behind the protests.
"Officials must acknowledge the deplorable situation of the country as the first step to hearing the protesters", tweeted Mohammad Taghi Karroubi, whose father Mehdi Karroubi has been under house arrest for nearly seven years for helping lead the 2009 demonstrations.
Think of the Iranian uprising as a bottom-up revolt by people who feel they've been ignored by a corrupt elite.
Writing on Twitter, the U.S. president also criticized the Iran Deal, an agreement struck by his predecessor, Barack Obama, in which sanctions were lifted against the Islamic Republic in exchange for a guarantee not to pursue the development of a nuclear weapon. They come from Iran's equivalents of "red states" and "blue states" alike.
