Personal Post | 6.14.2003 | DoctorZin

Posted on 06/14/2003 11:20:18 PM PDT by DoctorZIn

This just in...

We are hearing of a MASSIVE protest against the Iranian regime is being organized for Sunday evening in Iran. This is only 10 hours away (Iran is approx 12 hours a head of us in the PST Zone).

We are hearing of entire families, neighborhoods planning on attending. Even those frightened by the regime in the past as planning to join the protest tonight.

It is expected to be HUGE!

I will report back ASAP!

I've already harassed Fox and some others to pay attention and to start giving some real coverage, I encourage more to do the same.

I have never heard such excitement before.

Is US media picking this up? Anyone can chime in here. I haven't seen any coverage and wondered if anyone else had. Don't let my comment mislead anyone, I haven't watched much news in the last 24.

I don't suspect we have any resources over there, and I doubt Iran is anxious to give a live feed, if you catch my drift. I'd sure like to see some though.

I'm sure Al Brazeera will get on this right away... October or November.

I very much appreciate the reports also. It reminds me of the same hope for freedom I had during the uprising in China in the late 80s/early 90s.

Good luck to you all!

True, but that doesn't mean they can't report on it

Heck, maybe it will give them something other then the Laci Peterson case to talk about

Re #11

When they ever report it, it will be called a "Zionist imperialist" conspiracy.

Here's hoping that the Regime is on its last legs.

BTW, Zin, you've been doing some good reporting from your sources in Teheran. Keep on keepin' on!

It's nice to see that pure evil never takes a holiday...:)

I sure wish it would give them something else to talk about, and I care very much about the case. Enough is enough. Just report the facts.

As for Iranian news, they should report the facts even without video clips. I agree.

I am certain that, were they motivated to do so, the media could produce results from Tehran right now. We got live pictures from Baghdad 24/7 during combat, I'm sure we could get the occasional still photo and commentary during a civil crisis. Iran isn't exactly wide open, but it ain't North Korea.

The media is asleep at the switch. They left it set on 'Peterson Murder' and slipped into a coma.

This Just in...

We are hearing that the people are making crosses to carry with them in the protests...

They want the crosses to symbolize they are being slaughtered as Christ was slaughtered.

Whole families are going to join the protest: babies, mothers, children.... the entire families.

More to come....

Tehran sees fifth night of protest (ref. BBC)


Students say they will continue the demonstrations
Thousands of pro-reform demonstrators have taken to the streets of the Iranian capital Tehran for the fifth successive night.
But most stayed inside their cars, fearing a repeat of the attacks by right-wing vigilantes on the previous demonstrations.

Reports say there was an overwhelming police presence, resulting in muted protests which passed off largely without incident.

The protests, which are now reported to have spread to other cities, have been against the conservative clerical establishment and the reformist President, Mohamed Khatami, who is accused of betraying hopes for change.

This is just like it was before the revolution

Woman protester recalls unrest before the 1979 fall of the Shah


Protesters remain resolute
Who are the vigilantes?

Riot police formed a ring around Tehran university to protect students from conservative vigilantes who stormed dormitories there the night before.

Police had earlier warned the vigilantes, who are loyal to the country's supreme religious leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, against taking the law into their own hands.

They have also issued a warrant for the arrest of Sa'id Askari, a prominent pro-government vigilante leader who was seen at the demonstrations.

And state radio reports police have arrested scores of what it describes as "thugs and ruffians" in the previous four nights of civil unrest in Tehran.

Despite this, the latest protests saw vigilantes gather close to the university, while others patrolled traffic jams and manned roadblocks.

US condemnation

The early hours of Saturday morning saw security forces and hundreds of vigilantes used tear gas, clubs, chains and iron bars to disperse protesters.


Some students were attacked with knives

Students said dozens of armed Islamic vigilantes were involved in the attack on the university dormitory.

The US has denounced action against the student-led protests and called on the Iranian Government to protect demonstrators' rights.

A White House statement reiterated support for democratic reform in Iran, demanding that the voice of the Iranian people be heard.

The Iranian authorities have accused the US and Iranian exiles of fomenting the current unrest.

The BBC's Miranda Eeles, in Tehran, says thousands of ordinary Iranians have joined the students in demonstrations.

Despite the rough treatment of protesters, and warnings from Ayatollah Khamenei, our correspondent says the demonstrators' resolve to continue speaking out against the slow process of reform shows no sign of waning.

Student associations have said they will continue to demonstrate until 9 July, to commemorate the violent attack by hardline groups on students four years ago.

Iran recruits Saddam's scientists to build long-range missile

Iran recruits Saddam's scientists to build long-range missile

By Philip Sherwell in Baghdad (Filed: 15/06/2003)

Iran is recruiting top Iraqi weapons scientists to join a dangerous brain drain from Baghdad as international concern grows about Teheran's clandestine arms programme.

The pro-Iranian Badr Brigade, an Iraqi Islamic militia, is helping scientists to travel through tribal areas north east of Baghdad and across the border for meetings with senior military and regime figures in Teheran, The Telegraph has learnt.
