Iranian protesters burning their ID cards and utility bills

Daily Mail:
Iranian protesters have been seen burning their identification cards as unrest continues in the country despite government claims protests have ended.

Iran's Revolutionary Guard said on Sunday the nation and its security forces have ended the wave of unrest linked to anti-government protests that erupted last month.

But videos of civilians burning government documents and bills suggest the violence, which has already killed 21, is far from over with Iranians refusing to pay for their utilities.

Clips were uploaded to social media with captions stating, 'We do not pay any bills' and 'This corrupt system is doomed to end'.
...
I suspect the government's next move is to cut off the utilities for those who do not pay.  That will be grim satisfaction for a regime that is wasting money on Hezballah and Hamas while its citizens go without jobs.   It is a more passive-aggressive form of protest.  The government can't imprison the whole country.
