November 4, 1979: Revolutionary students seize the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran

“The United States is an imperialist power. And it’s one of the characteristics of an imperialist power to plant spy dens and spy networks all over a country to control all of its major political, social, economic systems. And to control all these systems for its own benefits; so they work for its own profits…. Oppression and tyranny must be destroyed.”

—Iranian Islamic revolutionary student Masoumeh Ebtekar “Mary,” at the occupied US Embassy in Tehran, 1979
