Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s controversial victory in the June 12 presidential election in 2009 marked a turning point in Iran’s recent history.

The fraud-marred vote sparked massive street protests and turned part of the Iranian establishment against the regime’s leadership.

One year on, protesters are still angry. Despite a year-long government crackdown and the last-minute cancellation of a mass rally planned on June 12, 2010, our Observers say that small groups of people are expected to hold spontaneous protests.
.
FRANCE 24’s Observers team will be live-blogging throughout the day to report on the events. Keep checking back on Saturday for news, photos, and videos from our Observers on the ground.
