These photographs show Iranian police removing and collecting illegal satellite dishes from the roofs of houses and apartments in eastern Tehran in late February. The war against the dishes, which allow Iranians to see uncensored foreign news and entertainment programs, appears to be a losing one, however. Police officers spend a considerable amount of time searching for them, dismantling them, and confiscating them. But like dandelions, the dishes seem to sprout right back up again.
