Navideshahed: Amid ongoing protests in New York and several other US cities against Washington's financial policies, Iran urges US officials to stop their oppression and hear the voice of Americans.

According to Navideshahed quoting Taqrib News Agency, the protests in the United States stem from the economic crisis in the West and the US, Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told reporters at his weekly press conference on Tuesday.

He regretted that the US police oppressed people who were expressing their viewpoints and stated that the policy-making processes in US' financial centers have led to the demonstrations.

The rallies originally started on September 17 under the banner 'Occupy Wall Street,' when activists and demonstrators announced their intention to seize the US financial district in protest to the country's dire economic conditions -- which they say is caused by corporate greed.

Similarly, many demonstrators have taken to the streets in Chicago and Los Angeles. They have been carrying anti-war placards and expressing frustration with the country's high unemployment rate, which stood at 9.1 percent for August.

Some of the protesters say the idea to occupy Wall Street was inspired by the popular uprisings of the past months in the Middle Eastern and North African countries.
