Green Brief #112 February 22nd 2011 By Codeman177 – http:/twitter.com/codeman177 The information in the Brief comes from tweets from people on the ground in Iran and Libya. I've tried to include only information that I could confirm. Protest/ General news 1. The Regime continues to claim that no protests took place on Sunday. They also claimed that only a few dozen protesters have died in the protests since they started in 2009. However, iranbodycount.blogspot.com has a list of 108 dead with sources confirming their deaths. The Guardian also has a list from June of 2009 to Early 2010 of over 1200 dead and arrested. 2.

Warning anyone who supports the leaders of sedition will be looked at as anti-revolutionary and will not be tolerated. 3.

Nafiseh Panahi, Karroubi's wife was also arrested during the raid, but was released later in the day. 4.

I planned to write a summary of Gaddafi's speech today, however; in his entire 90 min only about 2 mins made any sense. So here is a brief summary of the six most important points. I did not write this summary it comes from one of the protesters on the ground in Libya. 1 - all oppositions are high on drugs and pills 2 - drugs supplied by Tunisian and Egyptian anarchists 3 - The East part of the country is now run and controlled by Al Qaeda 4 - Denied any single bullet shot at peaceful protestors 5 - Accused the liberated cities of massacring blacks 6 - Demands everyone by tomorrow to give allegiance to him. all who don't are traitors who should die.
