INCREDIBLE FOOTAGE: Iranians Jump On Ahmadinejad’s Car To Complain About Poverty



In an extraordinary act of civil dissent, captured in a clip uploaded on YouTube, Iranian citizens in the southern city of Bandar-Abbas rushed into the path of the car carrying Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on a visit to the city, and directly confronted him to complain about their economic plight.

In the footage, an elderly man is shown at the side of the car, shouting “I’m hungry, I’m hungry,” as Ahmadinejad’s panicked bodyguards try to drown him out. The president had been waving to the crowds, standing aloft through the car’s sunroof.

Then, a young, black-clad woman clambers aboard the president’s vehicle, and sits down on the roof — inches from him. She complains to him about economic hardships; he listens, then apparently tells her to move on, and she disappears behind him.

The footage, taken when Ahmadinejad visited the city last week, was uploaded to YouTube this week.

  1. This is very bad news for all those propagandists who are always yapping that Ahmedinajad is a dictator and that Iran is a dictatorship. Besides, they have many more candidates running for president that we do in the USA!

  2. i guess all his propaganda does not fill their bloated tummies. all i can say is that they all deserve each other because if they werent hungry they would be happily chanting”death to the jews”

  3. this is not staged. Ahmedinajad is very popular and well liked. Picture Obama or Bibi in the same scene; no one gets near and if they do, they get beaten and hauled to jail. Here the lady not only got near him, she spoke to him and he listened and then she departed on her own.

    Don’t be foolish, he is better liked in Iran than Obama is in USA and Bibi in Israel. Ahmedinajad has body guards but they hardly interfered.

  4. It has to be staged. Although Im not sure to what purpose. If Ahmadinejad was truly being threatened in any way these people would all be bullet riddled corpses.
