Police Vs People
This is a video by the Italian TV reporter showing police attacking people. Then the people charge at the police motorcycles and capture a few officers. First people attacking police in Iran is unheard of. Then at the end of the video you'll see how people shield the same officer from further beating by angry people. This is excellent. Goes to show the people are FED UP. It proves that the regime might not look invincible in the eyes of Iranians any more. If this is the case, the regime is shaky, then its fall might come sooner than later. Let's give our support to those in the streets of Tehran and other cities who are fighting against regime brutality... 'Death to Dictator'
A friend asked about how he can help: Write to your MPs, elected officials and governments. Demand they don't negotiate with the mullahs under any circumstances.
Update 1: German news agency reports that Mousavi has called for a mass rally from Enghelab Sq to Azadi Sq. tomorrow (Monday June 15th) in Tehran at 4pm. That'll be an interesting development. My sources also confirm this story. Stay tuned
Update 2: A friend called and said the businesses and workers may go on general strike in Iran beginning Monday or Tuesday.
URGENT UPDATE: Security forces have raided the main campus of Tehran university in NW of Tehran. Shots being fired and heard across the area. 15 students injured. One killed (unconfirmed)
Updated at 9:45pm ET: People chant "We Want Freedom" in this video by BBC News reporter from Tehran. This is not a reform Vs hardliner protest. These are anti-regime, pro-freedom riots.
