There is a neighborhood (or two) in West Los Angeles that has so many Iranian expatriots that it is often called "Irangeles." Here is a demonstration at the Federal Building in Westwood (a few blocks down the street from UCLA - which has large numbers of Iranian-American students). This post is really for LTG. LTG LOVES flags. As you watch the video notice that several fights nearly break out because some of the demonstrators are carrying the old Pahlavi flag of Iran (with a lion holding a sword) instead of the current flag.

This is interesting because it exposes the lack of unity in the anti-Ahmadinejad
BTW: Southern California has had problems with flag politics among the immigrants before. Several years ago, a Vietnamese-American man was nearly killed by an angry mob because he displayed the current flag of Vietnam in his shop window instead of the old flag of South Vietnam.
