The Word Gets Out
Democracy protesters gather in Naghshe Jahan Square, Esfehan, Iran. This photo arrived via Twitpic.
UPDATE: The next protest is on at 4 PM Tehran time. Spread the word!
We live in a world where information is at our fingertips, yet mainstream media tells us that Osama Bin Laden is alive and the Universe is dominated by "dark energy.". Forces of darkness try to control the media so that even intelligent people are kept in the dark. Despite the dictatorship's best efforts, word of the uprising is getting out via blogs and Twitter.
In Iran bands of thugs, some imported from abroad, have beaten people senseless and ramsacked college campuses. This was written by "Kaveh" from Tabriz:
Don't Accept This Coup
Ahmadinejad has taken revenge on the students of Iran during these violent days. The regime's aim is to damage universities, since they are the first base of change, movement and protest.
I live in the dorms at Tehran University. I was asleep when Basij militiamen entered my room early Monday morning, demolished everything and started beating us. A man with a long beard broke my notebook and said: "It is destroyed, this book that you were using against Islam and Ahmadinejad."
They beat students more when they saw posters of Mousavi in their rooms. And they carried big knives and guns.
They also attacked the women's dormitory next door. The Supreme Leader calls us rioters, but I want to ask him: How can sleeping women in their beds be rioters? Is this the Islamic justice he believes in?
President Obama's speech was good; he says that he will support us. He also said that nations must decide the fate of their countries by themselves. I agree with him, but now we don't have any power to change the situation, so we need help and attention.
We ask the president not to accept this coup d'etat.
