We’ve recently covered the protests in Lebanon and Iraq - two countries where Iran remains highly influential. But Iran has been dealing with demonstrations of its own, triggered by a series of austerity measures to try and take pressure off their already-strained economy. What were these measures? What demands have the protesters called for? And will these events have any effect on the political career of their president, Hassan Rouhani? Phil and Cooper discuss this and more, along with Al-Monitor Iran Pulse contributor Sarbas Nazari.
