[Marxism] Are Iran's protests Economic or Political?

I would add that the revolt is also a youth revolt.  Young people in Iran have their personal lives, their cultural lives, their sex lives supervised by older, puritanical people.
Parties are often held in secret, fearful of a visit from the police.
You could argue that these young people are being shallow and self-centred, but that would change nothing.
