Rouhani: Government recognizes right to protest for all

Tehran, May 4, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani on Monday said his government recognizes right to protest for people of all walks of life.

Addressing a gathering in Tehran to celebrate the National Teacher’s Day, he said education in Iran has to gradually quit the entirely state-owned system and become non-governmental.

He stressed that while the nation has to learn science and technology from across the world, it has to use its own religious, Islamic and domestic sources to cultivate ethics and morality.

Turning to the May 1st ceremonies in Iran this year, the President said that for the first time in the country, Iranian workers staged a rally on the occasion.
