August 10, 2010 – The gold-sellers bazaar of Mashhad went on strike in protest to the armed killing of three merchants of the Bazaar. The names of the merchants are: Reza Khojasteh Toosi, Hesam Barniaee and Mojtaba Naser Ara. It is widely believed that the Bazaari’s were murdered by regime thugs, as the attack took place on the shops of these three Bazaari’s while a Special Security Force station exists exactly in front of the shops.
It should be noted that the official regime media outlets are reporting it as a jewelry heist, but no one in the Bazaar is buying this propaganda.
