MOUSAVI APPEALS TO THE WORLD TO PARTICIPATE IN SEA OF GREEN IN IN ALL CAPITAL CITIES THIS SUNDAY
Tehran is alive with the sound of people on their balcony shouting Hearing MUCH much stronger than any other day... Waiting for tomorrow!
Strange.. this night the power of Down With Dictator and Mousavi is at least tripled!
It is Down with Dictator time. U dont need a clock to tell it,a window to a street and an ear will do.
confirmed: Mousavi asked his supporters don't go to Friday prayer, next scheduling is Saturday in Enqlab sq @ 4 pm
BBC Caller:I voted 4 Ahmadinejad,wanna know why they kill innocent kids?my vote become a bullet&I'm responsible 4 the blood.
Hospital source - increase in admission of people injured and beaten by Baseej - all Tehran hospitals in high alert
Hospital source - 12 killed and 29 injured on Monday in Azadi Sq
Ignore rumors that Khamenei is not attending Friday prayer. He is: http://bit.ly/49uG6Y protestors to attend wearing black.
Facebook these days is acting as the mosques during the Islamic revolution!
Big traffic jam in Modarres highway and most of the cars are showing V sign from the windows(not the OS!viva Linux!)
eyewitness:"each time I decide to go I think maybe this time there aren't that much people...but each time there is even more!"
Police presence was EXTREMELY high in today's Toopkhune rally. Witnesses reporting uncountable number of gaurds
People carrying pictures of the martyrs of recent days in the rally today.
Imam Khomeini Sq. was great ... slow start but when things got on their way, there was no stopping the Green Wave!! Mousavi showed up too!!
According to contacts, today's demonstration was amazing. Basij and Ansar now fear massive retaliation by the public.

Let me be the first to say NO. I don’t follow would be Islamic apologist. I want to be clear, freedom is good, protest for freedom is great but Mousavi is not denouncing the ideology and only wants power. Again I say, NO
Think I’ll get some green out.
It’s a nice gesture, but keep in mind Mousavi’s green is the color of Islam.
And Mousavi is still Ahmadinejad-lite.
Hopefully, though, the revolution in Iran will see the complete downfall of the Theocracy, and the birth of true secular democracy there.
That would be useful.
Simply replacing Ahmadinejad with Mousavi and keeping the Ayatollahs and the “Supreme Leader” would not be.
It is believed that each color of the 4 Pan-Arab Colors represent a certain Arab Dynasty or era: the Black was the color of the flag of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, while white was taken by the Umayyads to be their Symbol, as a reminder of the Battle of Badr, Green was taken by the Fatimids to symbolize their support to Ali Bin Abi Talib, while red was the flag held by the Khawarij, and then became the symbol of rulers in North Africa and Al-Andalus.
Yes, that's the point, and why the Supreme Leader is having his personal militia shoot protesters dead in the street.
“We are Human not Hooligan” would be a good tagline.
I support the Iranians and wear an Iran flag ping (old flag, with lion). I do not support the person of Musavi. He is IMO just the vehicle to break up the system.
Do we know whether this violent protest is really pro-Mousavi or simply anti-theocratic regime or even just anti-corruption?
It’s not clear to me that we should color ourselves green until we know this.
I’m unable to take one twitter statement and extrapolate that all these people want the same. It seems to me that they have been asking for their vote to count (within the system). Personally, I put little to no credit in “twitter” reports. It can just as easily be propaganda.
Mousavi sails into sun, searchung for sea of green...
Well, at this point it’s pretty clear that this goes beyond who becomes the President of Iran. If the regime fails to contain this uprising, they are toast. Sadly, they probably won’t fail. But we should all hope and work for that the protestors succeed.
Since the Tianaemen Square crackdown in 1989, the Chinese people never got a chance to try it again. Hopefully that situation does not repeat in Iran. Basically it's now or never for the Iranian people.
As a Texan and an American, I find those Austin liberals supporting democracy for Iran offensive! Where were they for the past 6 years of the Iraq War?
I can't stand liberals.
Yes, and I do. It's gonna take awhile before we know what the true motivations of this protest are. I just hope that, if the fatalities mount up, it's not the current regime that triumphs. (Yes, I know the odds of that, too.)
