That is NOT what the people at the protest here have been calling for:

It's the media, not your Montreal protestors, who are urging further violence and laying the grounds for foreign intervention, agree.   Did this rally have any suggested actions for the Canadian government?   And if you had your choice what could the Canadian government do, or what could individual Canadians do to help the people of Iran?  

I don't mean this as a challenge.   I can't think of any positive role Canada could conceivably play here but I'd rather be wrong about that.

Ryabkov earlier told RIA news agency that the US is using the demonstrations on a 'pretext ' to review the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. The international agreement was also approved by Russia, China, France, the UK, Germany and the EU."

I believe lagatta4 does have a point in this. I have met people from Iran who were threatened by the religious extreme government. So I believe it's an serious issue in that part of the world. However this is an issue only the Iranian peoples can resolve. If western countries get involved in any way, it will only strengthen the religious extremes.

Why should vandalism by some young "hotheads" be used to discredit a broader movement, which has been largely based on improving people's living conditions, as well as issues of labour and democratic rights?

Good question. I was on the front line of this protest. I merely came away with deep bruises from the police armour while being pushe d back in this scene.  The black bloc were vilified because they stood to protect the Grandmothers.

"Legitimate protests have been hijacked by the usual suspects. Regime change is unlikely but what is in play is setting the stage for a further renewal of economic sanctions. Anyway, Tehran is already gearing up to increase business across Eurasia through China's new Silk Roads, the Belt and Road Initiative, and the Eurasia Economic Union. In the end it's up to Team Rouhani to be creative in alleviating the burdens on the economic front."
