Sadeh - Jan 30, 2010 - Yazd

This clip was taken on 30 January 2010 (Yazd, Iran) during celebrations for the ancient Iranian mid-winter festival of "sadeh" in which bonfires are lit symbolizing the defeat of darkness and cold and is also held in anticipation of the Iranian New Year in March ("sadeh" mean "hundreth" in persian and refers to 100 days remaining until the Iranian New Year). In the clip you can hear the crowd singing nationalistic solidarity songs and the Iranian national anthem which is frowned upon by the terrorist occupational Islamic Republic as is celebrating any pre-Islamic Iranian cultural festivals.
