Iran's government is warning opposition protestors that if people take to the streets, "their leaders will be arrested." But some have already been arrested and more may follow if street protests and the crackdown continues.

Guest host Alison Stewart speaks with Hadi Ghaemi, director of the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, about leading reformers and journalists who have been arrested in the past week.
