I'm curious to what this sign says and I don't even know whether it's Arabic or Persian. It was posted among hipsterish events posters on a busy Montreal street. Anyone?

Best answer: It's Arabic, it says "The people want the downfall of the regime". It's pronounced "Ash-Shaab yooreed isqaat an-nizham". It was a common chant during the Arab Spring.
