Iranian Alert -- August 20, 2003 -- LIVE THREAD PING LIST
The Iranian Student Movement Up To The Minute Reports ^ | 8.20.2003 | DoctorZin

Posted on 08/20/2003 12:01:40 AM PDT by DoctorZIn

The regime is working hard to keep the news about the protest movment in Iran from being reported.

From jamming satellite broadcasts, to prohibiting news reporters from covering any demonstrations to shutting down all cell phones and even hiring foreign security to control the population, the regime is doing everything in its power to keep the popular movement from expressing its demand for an end of the regime.

These efforts by the regime, while successful in the short term, do not resolve the fundamental reasons why this regime is crumbling from within.

Iran is a country ready for a regime change. If you follow this thread you will witness, I believe, the transformation of a nation. This daily thread provides a central place where those interested in the events in Iran can find the best news and commentary.

Please continue to join us here, post your news stories and comments to this thread.

Thanks for all the help.

Since the beginning of May, Washington has been levelling a series of accusations at the present government of Iran which it will be remembered was categorised by United States President, George Bush, as a member of the 'Axis of Evil' in his State of the Union Address in January 2002. Iran, it is alleged, is developing a clandestine nuclear weapons programme; it is harbouring Al-Qaeda terrorists; it is providing material support to the Lebanese Hizbollah and certain militant Palestinian groups; and it was responsible (this is a new allegation) for the 1983 bombing of a US marine barracks in Beirut that killed 241 troops. On top of all this the conservative religious elites in the Iranian government have been accused .................>>>
