Iranian Alert: Protests start for 6th night in Tehran... Huge Turnout Expected
Student Movement Coordination Committee for Democracy in Iran (SMCCDI) ^ | 6.15.2003 | Press Release

Posted on 06/15/2003 10:18:26 AM PDT by DoctorZIn

Protest actions and slogans against the regime have started for the 6th consecutive night "inside" main Iranian universities and especially in the Capital despite the encerclment of these facilities by the special forces.

Hundreds of students are shouting slogans against the regime and singing the banned Iranian National Anthem.

Students are requesting the immediate release of their arested and kidnapped colleagues, the resignation of the Universities managements, the expell of Intelligence members acting as students, the public trial of those involved in the last days of repression and a Free Election on the choice of the future Iranian regime.

The students are awaiting the residents to join them later this evening and many Iranians are getting ready to come back into streets from 22:00 (local time) despite knowing all dangers and risks.

Earlier today, sporadic clashes happened when groups of plainclothes men attacked forming gathering of young Iranians. These attacked took place in the Nazi-Abad, Vali-Asr and Dolat areas simulataneously which let believe of a new startegy of the regime to spread fear before the start of what can be named as a 6th consecutive night of unrest in preparation.

Brutal militiamen and members of Intelligence used of knives, clubs and chaines but young freedom fighters have retaliated.

Several have been injured but the plainclothes men have left the scenes after their commando style attacks.

According to sources in IRAN:

Late last night we heard from Tehranb...

We are hearing of a MASSIVE protest against the Iranian regime is being organized for Sunday evening in Iran, June 13, 2003.

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!

We are hearing from people in Tehran who are telling us the story directly.

I have never heard such excitement before.

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....

I am hearing of people going to church right now... They are the ones who plan on carrying crosses.

This must happen for the regime to callapse. It make take more than this, but is building FAST!

We are hearing that once the people heard President Bush supported their efforts everyone was encouraged and it has helped people to decide to join the protests.

The Iranians are in charge of their own destiny. Good luck to them. May they find freedom, prosperity and peace at the end of this path.

The US would love to be an open friend again. I hope it can be.

Something tells me that the ruling religious nuts are about to get a severe payback and tossed out on their bums; and unceremoniously at that.

They don't need our help, they have more than enough strength to do the job. An American presence there will taint the legitimacy of the protesters, and the mullahs have already insinuated that they are U.S. lackeys. We don't need to undermine them by playing clumsy CIA games where they're not needed.

"Earlier today, sporadic clashes happened when groups of plainclothes men attacked forming gathering of young Iranians."

Your own people are going to have to deal with this. You need to form triplets of
people with the discipline to observe these attacks without interfering. Follow the group
of thugs, and pick off "tail end charlie". In these groups there is always some stupid
ba$tard that misses the signal to move on and gets himself seperated. It will be the most
heartwrenching thing to endure seeing someone beaten, stabbed, and maybe slain.
But, disciplined action will reduce casualties in the long run.

Thanks freedom, I keep forgetting that it's summer over there and the people won't be out on the streets until after it cools off. I should know better since I live in Phoenix but I still stuck to the computer most of the night hoping for news.

RE #21

Yes, some basic guerilla tactics are in order. In addition to your tactic, they should create many small groups of at most a few dozen, and move into an unguarded place and do a quick protest to draw attention of vigilantes and escape into alleys before thugs get to them, only to regoup again in another unguarded place and protest again. This would make vigilantes really disoriented.

I suggest they go in the streets each bearing a homemade torch and stand their ground. Let the thugs feel the heat and see the light. Handy defense for close combat and a great visual deterent. As long as you can keep people from tossing them and setting fires which could litteraly backfire. Just fill a street with folks, they don't have to do other than smile and shake their neighbors hand. Speak softly, carry a big flaming stick...

My best hopes for them. A free democratic Iran helps everybody. Except the poor mullahs and their rabid lapdogs facing retirement!

They link to a Washington Post article where the the mullahs complain about Bush's support for the protesters. But atleast another media source is talking about it.

I have to admit that your tactic is better than mine because it is nonviolent.
It defends the moral high ground of their cause against propaganda attacks by the
mullahs.

It should have been "taunted". Freedom44 corrected himself in #23.

They have been tied up and taunted.

I like that almost as much as "attached to trees".

Even better "they were attached to trees and taunted".;o)

Opposition Satellite television stations have mostly all been jammed. They're collecting funds from Iranian-Americans and those in Europe to setup a radio station with the funds. They've already collected about 60k in 3 hours.

Reports from tehran that there are about 1k-1,500 demonstrating near the university. There are sporadic clashes here and there.

People are demonstrating in shiraz, and esfahan in small #'s.
