Death to the Dictator

Iranian students and those on the side of democracy have begun pushing for change in their oppressive government through the art of the downtrodden, graffiti.

That is why, many Iranians are putting their graffiti on money, writing such slogans as "DEATH TO THE DICTATOR" on Iranian banknotes.
