"Boundaries" was formed after the unfortunate events that occurred during the protests following the 2009 presidential elections in Iran. The protests began almost immediately after the results of the election were announced. Millions of Iranians were out in the streets in Tehran and all around the country protesting with signs that said, "Where is my vote?" and "Revote". The protests went on for a few days before the government became violent towards the protestors, firing bullets into the crowds, beating them with batons, and making arrests.
