"We’re not free to party, we’re not free at home"

The London Times has a story on Iranian youth. They want to be free, but feel that even voting in the upcoming elections won't make a difference.

“We don’t have any privacy,” began Irbad, 21, who is unemployed. . “We’re not free in the street, we’re not free to party, we’re not free at home. They can search us at any time. It’s not just one thing. It’s all of it. I want life to change completely. I want freedom.”
