Iranian protesters chanted “Death to America” on Sunday at a government-organized rally to mark the anniversary of the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Iran, and ahead of new U.S. sanctions on the country’s oil industry, Reuters reported.

The news outlet reported that thousands of students burned the American flag, an effigy of Uncle Sam and photos of President Trump outside of a complex in Tehran that once housed the U.S. Embassy, according to the news service. The protest was broadcast on state television.

The protests and accompanying chants of “Death to America” are common at annual rallies to mark the embassy seizure, Reuters noted.
