Exhibit Title: Iran in turmoil
After an intense electoral campaign and a landslide participation, the 2009 presidential election in Iran turned into a quagmire for most Iranians as the results were officially announced.
As Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was being officially declared the winner, a huge number of Iranians (up to three million in the streets of Tehran on June 15 according the Capital's Mayor) began protesting and many independent analysts pointed out evidences of massive fraud. Peaceful demonstrations have been followed by severe repressions and the killing of dozens of civilians.
In front of the deaf ear of the country's leadership, the trust gap seems to be widening every day for a majority of Iranian citizens.
