    Abnormal situation in Behesht-zahra

    Today's morning of Behesht zahra is not like everyday.
    There are lots of anti riot police in front of the main doors of there.
    There are two helicopters flying above it.
    Hundereds of basijis with their motorcycles are patroling in it.
    part 257(where Neda's grave is there) is under full control of Basijis.

    Scary...not going to ask how you know this. lol
    Be careful if you are out there today and good luck.

    Are there any sites that have live/current news about it up now?

    Hello Maxoud:

    Seems like all of this 'presence' is really the regime showing fear. They are losing control and they know it. The Green Movement will not be stopped; the regime is acting desperate. Very glad to see this.

    At the same time, I hope this large show of forces/basiji does not turn the day into another bloodbath. Let it be the day of peaceful mourning and solidarity of the Iranian people.

    Please, take care today and know we will be watching for your posts later to make sure you've returned home safe.

    Thank you for the update.

    And there you have it folks, the police decided to side with the regime this time:
  7. (4:38):A large number of anti-riot guards and police are present in the area. People throw flowers on them and chant "Support us ..Support us".

    Iran protests to honour the dead | News |

    I'm seeing a lot of reports on twitter and other places that Karroubi is there and he and the protesters broke through the security cordon and reached the grave.

    no idea if that's true or not.
  14. This may be a stupid question. I am not Muslim, but know like you all to by now that mourning lasts forty days and then officially ends. So what comes after that?

    This comment:

    The protesters at the cemetery can be heard chanting "Basij: tomorrow you will have to answer for the relatives you killed today," an email from Farsi speaker says.

    According to the Guardian:

    Video posted on Twitter of Behesht Zahra

    Re: Second video Landers posted... [removed my duplicate link]

    Seems like a big crowd... is that Mousavi's car they are around? Stories I've read said the crowd was trying to stop his car from leaving until basiji cleared them away...
  17. Visionary Member

    The crowds look huge. No idea if that's his car, but I wonder the same thing. I'm anxious to see if there is any footage of karroubi coming up soon.

    .: Persian Radio :.

    Tweet saying this is live streaming from Iran, can hear protesters and Farsi commentary.
  19. As for size of crowd, reports from twitter are saying crowds in Vali Asr square to Vanak square -- jampacked, full of fire and smoke.

    Crowds chanting in subway stations.

    Crowds in Valiasr and Ferdowsi squares.

    Clashes in Takht Tavoos & AbasAbad

    Actually Landers I agree with you. I certainly understand the dilemma, but hopefully soon the right moral decision will be much easier for them to make.
  31. a desert Member

    Eh, both are right- and wrong. It's great to stand up for human rights. It's also great to ensure that your dependents don't starve. :/
  32. Twister Member

    follow @iranproxy on Twitter, translating the calls coming in LIVE.
  33. It seems right now, people are hardly struggling in MOSALA. Plainclothmen are among people covered their faces with green covers. People need help there. Must call for help from other parts of Tehran. Please cover this and inform others.
  34. JohnDoe Moderator

    Part of what they are saying "today is our day of mourning. The courageous Iranians are the zealous mourners"
  35. JohnDoe Moderator

    This is HUGE!!!
  36. Twister Member

    tyvm! Listening to the radio and watching @iranproxy's translations and this is just incredible. **cheering**
  37. Frylock-IRAN Member

    If half of what I am reading on other sites is true, and many are faces from here on the ground in Iran, this is the turning point. It appears people are tired of living in fear, and fear in huge numbers is turning into fight, be it peaceful and a bit of you hit me, I hit back.

    I have so much respect of the Iranian people, may thier god be with them!
  38. just by random I came across this link on twitter:


    which is another shot of people chanting... The twitt requested somebody to upload it to youtube. I tried but it keeps crapping out on me.. Can someone take from here please.. I already have a copy on my computer so if it goes down I can provide it...
