Approximately 45 masked demonstrators marched down Massachusetts Ave. yesterday to protest "the U.S. backed fascist regime" in Iran and ask for the removal of the Shah.
Citing the Iranian army's suppression of an uprising last September, the demonstrators shouted "Down with the Shah" and carried signs reading "U.S. advisors, C.I.A. agents out of Iran." The protestors wore masks "so we will not be identified by U.S. or Iranian, agents," said one demonstrator, who refused to give his name.
The Iranian Students Association, the Iranian Students Union and the Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade which included students from many New England area colleges sponsored the march. Two Cambridge police cars accompanied the demonstrators throughout the march.
