As Iranians get ready to celebrate a 3,000-year tradition of Norouz, the Persian New year, a legacy from the ancient Persian Empire, they cannot hide their worries about the near future. They also are experiencing more inflation, while another shock this time comes not from the U.S. or the E-3, but from Japan, which has announced they want to reduce oil imports from Iran.Japan has always been one of Iran's best oil costumers. The corrupt and crisis-ridden Iranian economy is susceptible to a nasty shock like this that could send it into a tailspin. As the U.N. Security Council (UNSC) is still discussing how to sanction Iran, many Iranians believe that possible economic sanctions would weaken the middle and lower classes and create more dissidents. While the regime has violently suppressed demonstrations, strikes, and protests, it is difficult to predict radical change.
But like every year millions of people came to streets make fire and jumping over it, singing, drinking, dancing and throwing firecrackers to Police and militias.
