In Pictures: Iran Marks Anniversary of US Embassy Seizure

November 4, 2015

On November 4, Iran marked the 36th anniversary of the U.S. Embassy takeover in massive street rallies across the country. As in previous years, effigies of President Obama were burned along with American flags. The slogan “Death to America,” or “Down with the USA,” was chanted loudly and featured prominently on posters and billboards. This year, some of the signs carried by demonstrators displayed the logos of U.S. fast food chains, including KFC and McDonalds, and warned against American cultural and economic infiltration.
