Ahwazi Arab intifada Continues!

This began on the 28th of March after Iranian national TV rejected Ahwazi Arab’s existence in their land. It was triggered by an advertisement on pro-Iranian national Media where a child placed dolls wearing traditional dress on an “Iran’s map” to represent each ethnic group within current Iran. They deliberately omitted placing a doll to represent the Ahwazi Arab. Thus, denying our existence.
