Skip to comments.Amazing Video Shows Iranian Protesters Storming Gallows where Prisoners were Being Hanged - Video
Posted on 12/27/2009 10:07:01 AM PST by Federalist Patriot
Here is truly amazing (and graphic) video of a crowd in Sirjan, Iran storming police to prevent the public execution of two people. The video shows the crowd storming the gallows and cutting down the bodies of two men in the process of being hanged. It shows the protesters being shot at by Iranian forces as they tried to get away with the men. The condition of the men cut down from the gallows is not clear. Reports indicate several protesters were killed in the shooting.
Gateway Pundit has much more on the dramatic incident. . . .

SHOOT BACK, SHOOT BACK... oops, wrong country...
Iranian citizens can't own a satellite dish to pick up the news - they sure can't own a gun. Totalitarians in Iran are no different than the ones here ... the difference is so far we've been able to hold them off...
Those brave people!
They need guns. Yesterday.
I was a high school kid in 1979 and was shouting “Bomb Iran!” with the rest of my classmates, but ...
30 years of living and learning make me understand then and now a little better.
God bless these brave people for standing up.
I only hope that I’m as brave if/when I’m called upon.
How sad for these brave people, that video made me ill. God bless America and may 2010 be a new beginning.
I wonder how recent this was. Iran is crumbling before our eyes. I wish the North Koreans and Cubans would rise up in like manners.
Serbs would give them weapons. So would the Israelis, I would imagine.
That’s courage. These people will not be defeated. They want freedom. You cannot defeat that thirst.
All I can say is WOW.
Anyone know why they were being hanged or whether this was related to the pro-democracy uprising as opposed to some local brouhaha or Sunni-Shiite intramural affair?
“Serbs would give them weapons. So would the Israelis, I would imagine.”
I doubt the Israelis are stupid enough to start arming an unknown quantity formed out of a nation that has historically hated them.
This is an amazing video, and shows incredible bravery...but lets face it, blowing yourself is also an act of personal bravery, contemptible as the desired results may be. And Islam has no shortage of people being willing to blow themselves up. This hardly makes them the second coming of the Continental Army.
A lot of people seem to be hoping that George Washington is right now crossing the Rubicon in Iran...the reality is that the revolutionaries are probably as bad or worse than the current government.
A revolution whose goals are true individual liberty, like our American revolution, is very rare. Our Founding Fathers wanted to be free. They didn’t want to dominate us. They didn’t feel oppressed by their own citizens, and wish to conduct reprisals. Most Brit sympathizers left after the war...they weren’t persecuted...I predict in this revolution, they will be “correcting” past evils for decades. For a leader who truly loves and understand freedom to spring up in Iran is about as likely as a rose spontaneously growing in your cat litter box.
Man...there is one heck of a mistake in there. I don’t want to point it out because I’d probably get banned. Lets just say that I really, really needed to add the word “up” to a sentence. Of course, what I accidentally described would be an incredible act of bravery in my own personal circumstances, since I’d have to break my own spine and ribs to do so.
Sorry about that...geez. Freudian slip or what.
I’ve seen pictures...didn’t know it was you...never tried it myself...
And Obama...he lay low. This sorry ass excuse for an American President makes my blood boil. OBAMA SUCKS!
Yeah, some people get as much gratification from just viewing it in a voyeuristic fashion as they do from actually performing the act, so good for you. It is good to expand your personal horizons, or in your case...maintain the borders of what you already have. I bet your cache is very interesting.
Actually it was a grainy B&W photo I saw back in 1965. Frankly, I didn’t know for sure what was going on...
Come on now...0 has t times, and the ocean tides stop for no man or messiah. You can’t just change that because Muslims are trying to mass murder our citizens.
You didn’t know what was going on but you knew it applied here? And I can’t imagine the effort it took to find something like that back in 1965.
But, if you say so.
wtc911 is getting me all flustered with his expose on my subversive activities in the 60’s. I’m getting my rants confused, I was thinking about the attempted airline bomber when I wrote this. But the sentiment holds true, even for the Iranian revolution. The tides stop for no man, even when Muslims are fighting each other like hell.
It did not appear that the crowd was able to act in time to save them.
I agree that the potential for change in Iran is worth the cost of the revolution, whatever the eventual outcome. You’re no less dead because the current Iranian gov kills you than if you get killed by the new Iranian gov in 5 years...so here is hoping it is positive and they truly do have a revolution. They’re begging for a Starbucks and 3 different MTVs.
And I agree that doing little or nothing is about the worst thing to do in any situation. And I firmly believe that Islam and Democracy can never co exist. One or the other has to go any time they meet.
WTH is the outrage from the State Department?
Their silence in this situation is DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!
True. The Mediassia must be insulated from critisism by evil Americans.
I imagine it is heady times for our CIA right now...if 0 hasn’t clamped down on them so hard they’re unable to move.
Videos being posted at LiveLeak.com - raw and w/o much context...
Where is Zero on this ? Spending time at the beach in Hawaii.
fits ahitin the shan over there, bammy yawns.
Lot of three round bursts in that video.
Yeah true and we already know whose side the Joker takes.
If we had that much guts, we would be on the way to restoring Constitutional government.
Actually blowing ones self would be act of incredible gymnastics.
Blowing ones self UP on the other hand is not brave, it is the highest form of cowardice. They blow themselves up in order to get to heaven and reap their rewards. They are insane, not brave. In addition many suicide bombers are drugged or forced into the act and the trigger is controlled by someone safely out of the blast area.
I was going to say something like that. People commit suicide all the time, I’m not sure if I can call that brave, but it certainly takes strong willpower.
Suicide bombing, however, isn’t brave, because unlike the real acts of bravery in the Iran video, a suicide bomber doesn’t have to stand up to a powerful enemy as the freedom fighters are doing in this video. I would define courage and bravery as standing up and fighting for your beliefs, and not giving up even in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges (like these guards with guns). In contrast a suicide bomber just sneaks stealthily into a crowded area and flicks a switch. No courage necessary.

and from the National Council of Resistance of Iran, here:
Not sure if it was related to the unrest today in Iran..
George Washington crossed the Delaware. Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon.
Washington to free the colonies from the British, Caesdar to pursue his dream of dictatorship.
