People Fight Back Against Morality Police

Of all the clips which have been posted on youtube, showing how Iranians stand up to the Morality Police in the Islamic Republic, harassing Iranian women, this is my favourite.

See how the young girl fights back and punches the police woman several times, how the crowds gather and jeer the Morality Police and help the girl escape and how the cars press on their horns and make enough noise to make the police back down and panic. Excellent team work.

Yes, I've seen that several times. It's good teamwork, but it still upsets me so much because it's a small episode representative of the bigger picture of what goes on every day.

This really shows how courageous Iranian women are fighting these goons. Even if it is a bit exaggerated - I know that this is how Iranians would like to fight off these fascist goons.
