Attempted Iran media clampdown meets Internet age
Yahoo via AP ^ | June 17, 2009 43 mins ago | REBECCA SANTANA and BARBARA ORTUTAY, Associated Press Writers Rebecca Santana And Barbara Ortutay,

Posted on 06/17/2009 7:52:31 AM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

CAIRO – Iran clamped down Tuesday on independent media in an attempt to control images of election protests, but pictures and videos leaked out anyway — showing how difficult it is to shut off the flow of information in the Internet age.

The restrictions imposed by the government made such social-networking sites as Twitter and Flickr more prominent — with even the U.S. State Department calling on Twitter to put off a scheduled shutdown for maintenance.

Iranians were posting items online, but it wasn't known how much of that information was being seen by others inside the country. And although some of the posts on Twitter appeared to be from users in Tehran, others clearly were not.

Following a massive opposition rally Monday, authorities restricted journalists — including Iranians working for foreign media — from reporting on the streets. They could effectively only work from their offices, conducting telephone interviews and monitoring official sources such as state TV.

You would have to shut down the internet and the phone system and satellite phone service to control the flow of information out of Iran. Just consider how much bandwidth it takes to post a 160 character message to Twitter over the phone system with a modem. I could do that with my old 1200 baud modem from the mid-80’s.

Cyberwar guide for Iran elections Using - My Blog As A Mirror

This article was originally captured from here:

http://reinikainen.co.uk/2009/06/iranelection‐cyberwar‐guide‐for‐beginners/

#iranelection cyberwar guide for beginners

Posted at June 16, 2009

The purpose of this guide is to help you participate constructively in the Iranian
election protests through twitter.

1. Do NOT publicise proxy IP’s over twitter, and especially not using the
#iranelection hashtag. Security forces are monitoring this hashtag, and the
moment they identify a proxy IP they will block it in Iran. If you are creating new
proxies for the Iranian bloggers, DM them to @stopAhmadi or @iran09 and they
will distributed them discretely to bloggers in Iran.

2. Hashtags, the only two legitimate hashtags being used by bloggers in Iran are
#iranelection and #gr88, other hashtag ideas run the risk of diluting the
conversation.

3. Keep you bull$hit filter up! Security forces are now setting up twitter
accounts to spread disinformation by posing as Iranian protesters. Please don’t
retweet impetuosly, try to confirm information with reliable sources before
retweeting. The legitimate sources are not hard to find and follow.

4. Help cover the bloggers: change your twitter settings so that your location is
TEHRAN and your time zone is GMT +3.30. Security forces are hunting for
bloggers using location and timezone searches. If we all become ‘Iranians’ it
becomes much harder to find them.

5. Don’t blow their cover! If you discover a genuine source, please don’t
publicise their name or location on a website. These bloggers are in REAL
danger. Spread the word discretely through your own networks but don’t
signpost them to the security forces. People are dying there, for real, please keep
that in mind.

6. Do spread the (legitimate) word, it works! When the bloggers asked for
twitter maintenance to be postponed using the #nomaintenance tag, it had the
desired effect. As long as we spread good information, provide moral support to
the protesters, and take our lead from the legitimate bloggers, we can make a
constructive contribution.

Please remember that this is about the future of the Iranian people, while it
might be exciting to get caught up in the flow of participating in a new meme, do
not lose sight of what this is really about.

And from the NY Times:

Recount Offer Fails to Quell Political Tumult in Iran

************************************EXCERPT**************************

TEHRAN — Iran’s leaders failed on Tuesday to halt a second day of huge demonstrations against last week’s election results but, placed on the defensive, offered another concession to the sustained rage here, saying they would allow a limited recount.

They received a resounding refusal — first from reformist politicians who said they would accept only a new election and then on the streets of the capital, Tehran. Supporters of the defeated opposition presidential candidate Mir Hussein Moussavi jammed into a line more than a mile long. They marched mostly in silence, some carrying signs in English asking, “Where is my vote?”

Guardian UK: There were unconfirmed reports that Mohammad Asgari, who was responsible for the security of the IT network in Iran's interior ministry, was killed yesterday in a suspicious car accident in Tehran. Asgari had reportedly leaked evidence that the elections were rigged to alter the votes from the provinces. Asgari was said to have leaked information that showed Mousavi had won almost 19m votes, and should therefore be president.

**************************EXCERPT Intro************************

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Sen. John McCain told CNN Wednesday President Obama's statement that he doesn't want to meddle in the Iranian election controversy sends the wrong message.

"On this issue, I do not believe that the president is taking a leadership that is incumbent upon an American president, which we have throughout modern history, and that is to advocate for human rights and freedom — and free elections are one of those fundamentals," the Arizona Republican told John Roberts on CNN's American Morning.

While using Google to see if an news reports on French embassy attack...came across this:

Iran Parliament to probe post-election unrest

**************************************

Wed, 17 Jun 2009 14:46:10 GMT

With a weary eye on sporadic street unrests, the Iranian Parliament vows to look into the post-election developments and present the result to the Iranian public.

“The Parliament (Majlis) has every intention of investigating the recent events and sharing its findings with the public,” said Parliamentary spokesman Mehdi Koohkan on Wednesday.

Friday's presidential election, which saw incumbent Iranian President Mahmoud re-elected for a second term in office, has caused nationwide unrest.

The huge rallies, which according to some reports were participated by millions, have grabbed headlines in most media outlets.

Over the past three days, mass demonstrations have descent into chaos with a selected few clashing with the police, torching public places, and smashing windows, Koohkan warned.

“Protests should be organized within a legal and authorized framework,” said Koohkan.

Back to the French embassy:

In Tehran, anti-West protests erupt too

****************************************

Mon, 15 Jun 2009 18:26:27 GMT

As pro-Moussavi supporters staged a civil rally in Tehran, demonstrators from the opposite camp have gathered outside the British and French embassies in Tehran.

Waving Iranian flags and chanting anti-US and British slogans, the demonstrators gathered on Monday to protest what they called western involvement in Iran's internal affairs.

"We have gathered here to protest a hidden agenda (by Britain and the world), aimed at creating chaos in our country," said a protester in front of the UK embassy.

"We say to all oppressive governments not to intervene in the future of our country. We will stand in their way with all our strength," said another protestor in front of the French embassy.

The protests came on the day that Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei ordered an investigation into allegations of election fraud.

The Leader also urged defeated presidential candidate Mir-Hossein Moussavi to pursue his appeal against Friday's vote result legally.

Meanwhile, British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said Monday the Tehran government which is dealing with post-election riots "seems to be state violence against its own people in Tehran and elsewhere".

Iran's Protests: Why Twitter Is the Medium of the Movement

*************************EXCERPT**********************************

The U.S. State Department doesn't usually take an interest in the maintenance schedules of dotcom start-ups. But over the weekend, officials there reached out to Twitter and asked them to delay a network upgrade that was scheduled for Monday night. The reason? To protect the interests of Iranians using the service to protest the presidential election that took place on June 12. Twitter moved the upgrade to 2 p.m. P.T. Tuesday afternoon — or 1:30 a.m. Tehran time. (Read "The Iran Election: Twitter's Big Moment.")

When Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams and Biz Stone founded Twitter in 2006, they were probably worried about things like making money and protecting people's privacy and drunk college kids breaking up with one another in 140 characters or less. What they weren't worried about was being suppressed by the Iranian government. But in the networked, surreally flattened world of social media, those things aren't as far apart as they used to be — and what began as a toy for online flirtation is suddenly being put to much more serious uses. After the election in Iran, cries of protest from supporters of opposition candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi arose in all possible media, but the loudest cries were heard in a medium that didn't even exist the last time Iran had an election. (See pictures of Iran's presidential election and its turbulent aftermath.)

So what exactly makes Twitter the medium of the moment? It's free, highly mobile, very personal and very quick. It's also built to spread, and fast. Twitterers like to append notes called hashtags — #theylooklikethis — to their tweets, so that they can be grouped and searched for by topic; especially interesting or urgent tweets tend to get picked up and retransmitted by other Twitterers, a practice known as retweeting, or just RT. And Twitter is promiscuous by nature: tweets go out over two networks, the Internet and SMS, the network that cell phones use for text messages, and they can be received and read on practically anything with a screen and a network connection. (Read about how Twitter is changing the way we live.)
