I'm hearing from inside of Iran (also reading on different weblogs) that a huge teachers' demonstration is brewing in Tehran right now. According to trusted sources thousands of teachers and workers are heading to various locations ( Islamic Assembly & Ministry of Education) in downtown Tehran to protest. [last week gathering pics] & [Islamic regime crushes teachers' protest]

Updated @ 14:55 pm EST:

1- 250 Iran-Iraq war vets have been protesting in front of the Islamic assembly asking for better care, treatment and pay.

2- 300 oil workers in the western city of Gachsaran are announcing their intentions to go on strike and protest in front of the governor's office. They are not paid for the past 2 months and that's the major force behind their drive to rally before governor's office. [in Persian]

3- Families of 40 detained teachers have held a vigil in front of Islamic Revolutionary Courts building and demanding the unconditional release of their loved ones from regime's jails.

Is there anyway all of those teachers, bus drivers, oil workers, other workers and students could storm the parliament? Just wondering...
