In the 1970s, Shahram Aghamir lived in Iran. He was a supporter of the revolution. But now he lives in exile.
His story is similar to many Iranians'. And the revolution's 37th anniversary comes to him with mixed emotions.
"For me, I have ambivalent feelings," he says. "It was a popular revolution. And it accomplished political independence vis-a-vis foreign powers. However, when it came to the second component, which has to do with the ability of people to participate in the political process and make decisions for their future, the revolution failed."
