Iranians storm US Embassy, Nov. 4, 1979
Chanting "Death to America" and burning the United States flag, thousands of Iranians protested in Tehran Saturday against President Donald Trump's policies and to mark the anniversary of the 1979 USA embassy siege.
After Iranian students seized the USA embassy in Tehran in 1979, they spent years painstakingly reassembling the intelligence reports shredded by the CIA officers who were some of the last workers captured, according to the BBC. Still, the Europeans share U.S. concern over Iran's ballistic missile program and "destabilizing" regional behavior. Demonstrators burned an effigy of U.S. President Donald Trump, as well as Israeli and U.S. flags.
On November 4, 1979, a group of Iranian university students took over the U.S. diplomatic mission, which they believed had turned into a centre of espionage aimed at overthrowing the then-nascent Islamic Republic.

State television said similar celebrations were being held in other Iranian cities and towns.

The US Congress must now make a decision regarding the nuclear deal, which saw Iran agree to limit its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.
"This year, Trump's anti-Iranian policies have mobilised more Iranians", Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council. The U.S. cut its diplomatic relations with Iran after the embassy takeover and has had no diplomatic relations since.
Hundreds of thousands of Iranian people, mostly school and university students, staged demonstrations on Saturday morning all over the country to express their opposition to the arrogant policies and attitudes of the enemies, particularly the US.
