new rounds of protests in Tehran, Iran!
The students protest against the new rounds of suppression in the Universities around the county!
Didn't our President offer help to peoples everywhere who wanted F-R-E-E-D-O-M?
Are these protests against the government or simply the University (or are they one in the same thing?)?
Against the government!
May Iran belong to them soon!
Lot of people wearing glasses. In the Iraq pictures, there are few. I doubt the Iraqis have better eyes or are wearing contacts.
That's what all that radioactivity does for ya!
What do you mean?!
Yes, pray for their safety. Hopefully Iran will belong to them soon.
Why isn't this on TV?
Just an observation.
john murtha and Iraq plans are more important than bunch of mideastern students shouting for more freedom /sarcasm off>
An anti-American demonstration in Tehran, November 1980.
it is history by now!
That generation is either dead or now is an opposition to the current government!

Well I don't see what the problem is.
The news is monopolized by bad eliments:
This is a War on Terror because these eliments embedded our land, Europe, Mid East and Asia. Can't name a country we are at war with because it is within.
Here is Soros ties to Iran:
Among the conclaveâs key backers was Ahmed Huber, a Swiss-German convert to Islam who traveled back and forth to Beirut to promote the event. This is the same Huber who is a primary supporter of the NPD, the German neo-Nazi party that sent 4,000 of its members marching through Berlinâs historic Jewish neighborhood on a recent Sabbath.
It takes money, clout and coordination to get 4,000 people to march anywhere, and clearly, people like Huber have got all three. And his contacts stretch beyond Europe and the Middle East. In a recent televised interview, Huber spoke of his many lectures in the United States and boasted that because of his strong ties to American Islamic groups, he was given advance warning that something big was going to happen here -- well before 9/11.
Against a wall filled with pictures of his heroes -- the Ayatollah Khomeini and Hitler, among others -- Huber denies that his bank has helped al Qaida, even as he gloats about his cohorts in the U.S. assuring him, We will bring down the power of the Israel lobby.
Alias: Achmed Albert Friedrich Armand Huber
Nada Management Organization - the Nada Management Organization was blocked on suspicion that the firm had possible links to the September 11 attacks. No details were given about the amounts frozen or the banks concerned. The move comes after the United States asked Switzerland, Italy, Liechtenstein and the Bahamas to block all assets belonging to the Nada Management Organization, which was previously known as al-Taqwa. Two of the companyâs bosses were detained by police for questioning in Lugano on Wednesday, as part of a coordinated operation by Switzerland, Italy and Liechtenstein.
Youssef Mustafa Nada and Ali Ghaleb Himmat were taken into custody after Italian police raided their homes on Wednesday in Campione DâItalia, a tiny Italian enclave in Switzerland, surrounded by canton Ticino. They were later released. Another Nada official, Ahmed Huber, was questioned about al-Taqwaâs activities by Swiss officials in Bern before being released. The Swiss federal prosecutor, Valentin Roschacher, said the investigation was likely to take several months. âWe now have enough information to open an inquiry. We seized a lot of documentation on Wednesday, some of which is in Arabic, and it will take a long time to follow the paper trail.â
The US authorities say al-Taqwa is one of several informal cash exchanges - known as âhawalasâ - which funnel millions of dollars to terrorists outside the traditional banking system.
Investigators suspect that hawalas also help terrorists acquire material and supplies by acting as front organisations. They believe bin Laden has made use of them to acquire and distribute funds.
Nada Management, founded in 1987 under the name al-Taqwa, is one of the worldâs largest financial institutions dedicated to Muslim clients and Islamic business activities. One elemental service these groups provide is the hawala exchange system, by which small amounts of money - usually less than $1,000 - are transferred to other hawala agencies around the world. A sum of money or valuable can be brought to a hawala agency in Europe, for example, where a phone call to a network office in the Middle East or Asia will free up a corresponding amount at the desired destination.
The transaction is almost immediate, based entirely on trust and requires no certification that might leave a paper trail. Western antiterror experts suspect such unregulated transactions allow millions of dollars to be funneled to Islamist groups engaged in terror.

Those protestors were MEK members
A marxist islamist group which is hated by majority of Iranians inside and outside of Iran
btw, whats your point?!
"bogus "innocent student demonstrators","
Want to prove that accusation?
And then explain why "bogus "innocent student demonstrators", would be demonstrating against the gov't." You think the gov't is staging demonstrations against itself?
Apparently near revolutions don't make the evening news anymore. I'm dumbfounded.
The media completely ignored the Iranian student protests back, what, a year or two ago? Tens of thousands of protesters doesn't make news.
Thanks Calpernia, for the links. They are bookmarked.Also, I'm going to check out the boggers posted.
President Bush has a plan for the Middle East, and I think it is brilliant.
The media is part of the war. ;)
We all have a vested interest in the students taking back Iran. We are all in this war together.
They are not alone.
Wow. That raises hell for us dial up users.
Apparently you don't read much. 70% of the population in Iran is under the age of 30. They are overwhelmingly pro-American. You find a middle east specialist who doesn't agree with that and get back to us.
And btw - your recollection of "the virulent hatred of the Iranian populace to the United States" comes from people like Ted Koppel who only told you about the Iranians who were at the staged rallies. He never mentioned the wishes and feelings of the MILLIONS of Iranians who WEREN'T at the rallies. That's how the media manipulated your opinions (and most Americans') about Iranians. Just like they're manipulating Americans' feelings about Pres. Bush and the war in Iraq.
The students need the backing of merchants, transportation personnel and others to overthrow the current government. It also requires a huge financial backing along with some blood letting.
They are not alone. They will win.
go to this link for more pics
This is one of the biggest crowds I've seen in while.
Thanks for the pics
i added more photos
It wasn't just in Tehran. I am trying hard to find more images
Still it is not enough.
You're right. They need help.
I certainly hope that they get it and get it soon. For those interested they should read a post by F 14 Pilot regarding the the last Thanksgiving celebrated in Iran by the Americans.
As one who vowed never again to be taken in by the myth of "Iranian Moderates" (post-Iran/Contra), I would say that these students must be protesting the lack of nuclear weapons in their country. I will believe otherwise when the students in question, and other like-minded Iranians, overthrow the Theocracy in Iran, with no assistance from us.
F14: Those protestors were MEK members - A Marxist Islamist group which is hated by majority of Iranians inside and outside of Iran: btw, whats your point?!
humint: 6323cd, Id like to make clear that F14 is mistaking in this case, the protesters in your picture are not members of the MEK. To your point, back in 1977, the geopolitical environment was very different than it is today. The sentiments of 77 are not particularly relevant now. Those sentiments were popular, bottom up and originated with U.S. support for the Shah. The sentiments of 77 have subsided for a number of reasons that include but are not limited to, contemporary demographics combined with the fact that these days, anti-Americanism is officially enforced in a top down fashion.
Workers strikes, ethnic unrest, newspaper closings, blogger arrests and students protests are measurements of internal restiveness. Each are well documented by the wire services however these stories rarely make the MSM. Massive demonstrations [between 5,000 to 25,000 Iranian expatriates] against the Iranian regime have occurred outside of Iran in Brussels, Berlin, Paris, Washington DC, New York and Los Angeles in the last five years. The scope of unrest goes far beyond Iranian students whom you imply will protest anything and everything. Recall that these are students living under dictatorship and have every reason to be in the streets demanding change.
Those in your photo from 1980 are Dast-eh Tude-ha, marxist extremists funded by the Soviets! No way do these people represent mainstream Iran. BTW, neither does the government!
MEK speaker is back!
u r dead wrong!
F14, I do not speak for the MEK and have not gone anywhere. I've been posting about other topics but am well aware of the history of Iran and her political groups. If you'd like, we could converse about other Iranian groups but the only one you're interested in is the MEK. You brought the MEK topic up again and if you recall in one of our earlier conversations, I mentioned that when you're wrong about something I promised to let you know you're wrong, as a friend of course. It's clear from your posts that you have a personal and particularly emotional understanding of Iran's history. In this case youre wrong and I think it is important to correct the record.
But before you start to slander again, please know that I'm trying to be particularly civil... note that I didn't comment earlier on how you so casually announced the opinions of the majority of Iranians both inside and outside Iran. Apparently you don't know that you do not believe the Iranian people should be democratically represented, only spoken for. Im curious as to where and how you attained the special ability to know what the majority of Iranians want and don't want. Were you born with it or did you train really hard? I thought only one man had the power to dictate what the Iranian people want and dont want, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenie. If youre him
WOW! I never would have imagined a fascist dictator could appreciate a forum like FR!
