Iranian merchants continue to strike on Wednesday  

According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), strike has been resumed by Iranian merchants on  Wednesday for the fourth consecutive days.

More merchants are joining the protest closing down their shops according to videos circulating in the social media. Several big shopping centers including Tehran’s gold and mobile phone markets remained closed on Wednesday despite serious warnings from Iranian judicial officials.

The strike and demonstrations started on Sunday against the devaluation of Iran’s Rial against the foreign currency and a rising price of imported goods.
