Why are people protesting in Iran?

Third day of protests across Iran, the mad Mullahs are clamping down and here is a video which gives a short glimpse into why?

The protests in Iran’s second largest city, Mashhad, on Thursday, was initially led by hard-liners who wanted to publicly opine about the reformist policies of Iranian president Hassan Rouhani. However things didn't go as planned when that anti-Rouhani protest morphed into an anti-regime one, decrying rising prices, corruption, and Iran’s foreign policy expenditures in places like Syria and Lebanon.
The protests, then quickly spread to other major cities on Friday, including Tehran and even to the holy city of Qom. Whilst peaceful at the beginning, things have turned violent with protesters and security forces been attacked, buildings been burnt down and reports are now coming in that people have been shot dead.
