Heart-wrenching words of a retiree!


[In this footage, one of the Iranian retirees is talking about his difficult life. On December 10, 2017, the retirees held a gathering in front of the Parliament building to protest against what they called as ‘officials’ not keeping their promises’. They chanted a slogan, “Today is the day of mourning, the retirees’ salaries are under the mullahs’ cloaks”.]

–What do you want to do? Take away anything you like. We are fellow countrymen. I have been working in this country for 20 years. They have branded me with any label. Any label. It makes no difference to me. I am living with one million tomans (about $250). You, people. You, retirees. Why are you standing there? Come closer.
