Iranians in the US are gathering in Ny to show their objection to his presence. Since the election day on 12 June, Iranians have demonstrated against the outcome. the government has detained about 5000 and the number of those murdered in various detention centres or street demonstrations is unknown. A list of 72 was recently published.
