The YouTube video purports to show a stadium, labeled Shiroudi Sports Compound, today June 22, in Tehran that has been taken over as a base by the Basij militia.

Demonstrators move from the left toward the stadium, prompting dozens of Basij militiamen, riding two-up on motorcycles, to pour into the street. What seem to be gunshots are heard echoing in the air.
