Iran News Agency: In the wake of the rise in anti-government protests, and high participation by youth in the demonstrations, the regime has resorted to pseudo pro-government rallies to counter the opposition.
One of the dirty tricks used by the regime to lure people into the streets and into such demonstrations is seduction by financial incentives. For example, in the Law Faculty of the University of Tehran, to encourage participation by students, anybody taking part in these sham gatherings is awarded with a bank account in Maskan Bank. The same trick is employed in public (government run) companies and offices where employees receive a financial reward for showing up at pro-government rallies.
