Iran: Budget Leaks, Unemployment and Unrest

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Recent protests across Iran have resulted in at least 21 deaths and the arrest of hundreds of Iranians. Unlike the 2009 protests, there's been no clear leadership coordinating the demonstrations. The Agenda discusses the counter-protests, accusations of foreign influence, suspension of access to social media and threats of swift and deadly justice that have all played a part in this wave of dissent from the Iranian populace.
