I think Google will have other more pressing events to commemorate. Such as Picasso’s birthday, or the invention of the Slinky.

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?
Courfeyrac:
Then join in the fight
That will give you the right to be free!

ALL
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

Will you give all you can give
So that our banner may advance
Some will fall and some will live
Will you stand up and take your chance?
The blood of the martyrs
Will water the meadows of France!

ALL
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

Mousavi is no reformer.

Mousavi was the one who recruited Khan, the Paki nuke scientist to give Iran the tech to build ICBMs.

Mousavi`s foreign policy is identical to the mullahs`.

Iran protesters ask for Google's support 18 June 2009 @ 12:06 pm A website supporting the opposition protests in Iran has called upon Google to change it's logo for a day "to help the people of Iran". A proposed Google logo designed to express support for Iranians protesting against the election of President Ahmadinejad. (http://whereistheirvote.x10hosting.com/) 1 of 1 Full Size Iran is currently gripped by a political crisis after last Friday's re-election of hardliner President Ahmadinejad. Hundreds of thousands and possibly as many as a million people from all sections of Iranian society have taken to the streets for mass protests throughout the week. So far eight people have been killed in the demonstrations, while one man who is said to have released the "real" election results, showing a heavy defeat for Mr Ahmadinejad has died in a suspicious car accident. The website, whereistheirvote.x10hosting.com, said it was "writing to all Iranians who are seeking peace and freedom against war," to support a call for Google to change it's logo for the day. The proposed logo is green, the colour of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, and features the flag of Iran, a white dove and a drop of blood symbolising peace and those killed in the protests. http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/articles/20090618/google-iran-elections-iranian-protests.htm

from the protestors on Twitter: "I want more than just a new president, I want an end to this brutal regime"

Hard to keep them down on the farm and subservient once the people have tasted liberty...

Don't ask Google for help; they sold out the Chinese dissidents in exchange to gain access to the Chinese market.

Yeah I've been wondering about that: regardless of who wins the "election", would things really be any different for the average Iranian considering the same Mullahs are the ones actually running the show?

I give credit to the Iranians for standing up, but I feel like they're just being played and it's all an illusion.

I’m not so sure there ideology is vastly different. Sure they want the freedom to be more Liberal socially but should we believe they want to kill the nuke program, recognize Israel, stop supporting Hezbollah and stop meddling in Iraq?

Unless the islamic terrorist regime lead by the mullahs is overthrown then all these protests are not going to lead to anything. Iran is ruled by the terrorist mullahs and on the top is the so called Supreme leader(Khamenei and before him was khomaini). The President of Iran does not have the real power the council of terrorist mullahs and their head the Supreme leader do. Even if Mousavi becomes President of Iran nothing at all will change in the behavior of the Iranian terrorist regime as long the terrorist mullahs rule.

Agree 100%. The terrorist mullah council have the real power in Iran and not the President. As long as the terrorist mullahs rule then nothing will change no matter who is President.

...If the army turns, there will be a bloody revolution and the ouster of the Mullahs. I have a feeling the general army and the police will turn if the Rev Guard and the terrorist goon squads start mowing down the population in mass.

I’m personally praying for an overthrow of the control by the Mullahs. A second revolution and this time to a real democracy.

At this point, the protest makes about as much sense as 4.5 million US citizens swarming DC to demand that John Edwards be Secretary of State.

Seriously: Both Ahmadenijad and Mousavi were allowed to run by the Ayatolah, who really runs the country - ergo they’re not that different, both supporting what the Supreme Ruler wants out of the occupant of what is little more than a top cabinet position.

Yes, but the leftist media is trying to manipulate our opinions. Showing the pretty hippie girls is one of their methods. Printing signs in English is another. They are not going to show the ugly girls, or the conservative pretty girls.
