Based on received reports, more than 150 riots were organized by people of various social classes, around Iran between September 15th and October 15th.
During this period 153 instances of strikes, sit-ins, conflicts and protest occurred in dozens of cities around Iran against the ruling Mullahs. Cities like Tehran, Esfahan, Sabzehvaar, Birjand, Miaandowaab, Karadj, Khorramabad, Torbat-jaam, Rasht, Hamadan, Orumi´yeh, Maybod, Bojnourd, Mash´had, Zanjaan, Baabol, Qom and many more.
Knowledgeable and active students organized sit-ins and demonstrations in 60 of said cases. These protests occurred in universities in: Tehran, Karadj, Lorestaan, Zanjaan, Shiraz, Mash´had, Kermaanshah, Orumi´yeh, Gilaan, Sabzehvaar, Esfahan, Rasht, Torbat-jaam, Araak and Kerman.
The country´s destitute workers, in 37 cases of sit-ins and protests were the second highest active group, after the students. During this one month period the most noticeable aspect of these protests were the 20 cases of extensive clashes between the protestors and the regime´s disciplinary forces which was much higher that previous months. In a few instances the representatives of the regime were severely beaten. Other groups such as nurses, teachers and highschool students were also among the protesting groups.
In light of the non-stop executions at the hand of the Mullah regime, protests proliferated and increased all around the country. During the one month period between September 15th and October 15th, 36 people (that are known of) have been executed. These executions were specifically designed to intimidate and scare the already exasperated citizens.
The hardworking and honest Shop-keepers and street vendors of the town of Boraazjaan (province of Bushehr) harassed by the disciplinary forces
The clashes that continued on for hours forced the Bazaar of this town to close down. The problems began when the disciplinary forces began gathering merchandise belonging to the street vendors.
The office of the regime representative in the city of Ramsar, was attacked by armed gunmen
Based on published reports, the attacker entered the regime´s representative´s office at 8 AM and began shooting. The representative is now hospitalized.
The flag of a free Iran.
With Afghanistan voting, with Iraq getting there, its a matter of time before the people of Iran insist on the same for themselves. Go freedom.
Here is more of what is happening in Iran. Are there any News media reporting it?
Iranian woman reporter held in crackdown
Deutsche Press Agency - World News
Oct 29, 2004
TEHERAN - The Iranian judiciary yesterday ordered the arrest of a woman reporter in Teheran, the students' news agency ISNA reported.
Fereshteh Ghazi, a reporter with the reformist daily Etemad, was arrested on still unknown charges and with no information on her whereabouts, her husband told ISNA.
Despite widespread protests and appeals to the state's leaders, the conservative clergy in the judiciary is continuing a crackdown on journalists, charging them with spreading lies, insulting officials and endangering national security.
In the latest round of measures against the Press, several journalists working for news web sites have been arrested in recent weeks and several Internet sites closed down.
More good news from the Middle East that's not being reported here. Of course, if Kerry wins, it would all be instantly credited to him.
When George Bush is re-elected and the Iranians see thet we are serious about bringing Democracy to the Middle-east they will make their move.
If Kerry is elected who knows what will happen ? One thing is sure Kerry hasnt a clue.
"Fereshteh Ghazi, a reporter with the reformist daily Etemad, was arrested on still unknown charges..."
Actually, contrary to Deutsche Press Agency which is a pro-mullah news source working hand in hand with its pro-mullah German government interested only in its lucrative "con$tructive dialogue$" with the Mafioso-fascist mullahs controlling Iran, the journalists were charged with a crime.

Sixth Online Journalist Thrown in Prison as Authorities Reportedly Prepare "Adultery" Charges
Reporters sans frontiÃ¨res -Statement
Oct 29, 2004
Reporters Without Borders today deplored the arrest of Iranian journalist Fershteh Ghazi, of the daily Etemad ("Confidence"), for working with reformist Internet news websites and expressed alarm at reports that the intelligence services were preparing to accuse her and five other imprisoned journalists of "adultery" in a bid to hide the political nature of their detention.
"Such accusations, about private matters, would serve to cover up a flagrant violation of free expression and would be a disgusting legal spectacle," the worldwide press freedom organisation said.
Ghazi was picked up on 28 October by the Teheran morality police, Edareh Amaken, when she answered a summons to appear before the 9th chamber of the Teheran prosecutor-general's office. Her family was not told why she was arrested or where she was being held.
The five other imprisoned journalists - Javad Gholam Tamayomi, Omid Memarian, Shahram Rafihzadeh, Hanif Mazroi and Rozbeh Mir Ebrahimi - are expected to be accused of having sex with her. Some of them are said to have been forced to sign confessions. Such accusations by the authorities are common against political prisoners in Iran.
Tamayomi, of the daily Mardomsalari ("Democracy") was arrested on 18 October when he answered a summon from the same officials as Ghazi. Memarian (editor of a weblog) was arrested on 10 October, Rafihzadeh (cultural editor of Etemad) on 7 September, Mazroi (who worked on several reformist papers) on 8 September and Ebrahimi (former political editor of Etemad) at his home on 27 September.
Thank you for your posts and comments.
What a sweet justice it would be when tables are turned. Mullahs are either ignorant of history or are way too aware of it. Iranian history shows the head tyrant always gets away. The rest of his crowds are barbequed.
