    Time Magazine tells the truth:

    "At 4 p.m. the Iranian government broke up an attempted memorial service at
    a cemetery but, very soon after, after tens of thousands of protesters
    poured into the streets of central Tehran Thursday night, overwhelming
    Iran's feared security forces. The crowds burned tires, honked horns, waved
    peace signs, and chanted "Death to the dictators." Because the
    demonstrators gathered in several neighborhoods throughout the capital, as
    well as at the country's largest cemetery 20 kilometers south of the city
    center, the basij paramilitary and Revolutionary Guards could not cover
    enough ground to control the growing crowds, one of the largest outpourings
    in recent weeks, albeit spread throughout the city. Indeed, the protests
    even spread into the city's subway system as many participants hurried back
    into the city from the aborted prayer service at Behesht-e Zahra cemetery.
    "Tehran was our town today," exclaimed a 26-year-old woman. "We had more
    courage and the police less courage," she said. [....]"
    Iranian Protesters Exceed Security Forces in Tehran - TIME

    What's the opposite to a "media beat-up" - has a word been invented yet?
    If not, we might need one soon if the mainstream media keeps down-playing
    the situation in Iran.

    Ok, I deleted my two posts about it, whew.
    That's one less death to worry about.
    I kinda wish I'd seen the link before looking through all those videos though.

    -Ok, so I'm curious to see if anyone has any personal account from today.
    -Also wondering if there's people who can't see the videos, if they can see screen caps and if anyone would be interested in making some for them.

    Everything I heard so far regarding yesterday,

    there have been reports of shots fired, seems that Basij have changed tactics, by now they have figured out that all the bloody videos and the photos are working against them and there is no stopping them from leaking out. They might be stepping up arrests so they can do their dirty work behind closed doors but again in many videos I notice that they give the protesters a good beating than they let them free, a lot of the commentary in the videos seems to support this as well, some other commentary from people in cars talks about people being in every corner throughout the city (Tehran)

    I saw some videos of people getting out of their cars en-masse earlier, but it's still amazing, and pretty cool seeing the kid on the car and chanting too.
    I also like how no one's pissed or attacking each other for being stuck there. lol
    Good sign that the people are very much in this together.

    Read and watched all I can for now. Will keep hunting and posting tomorrow.
    Nothing new to post link-wise, but going to bed and I have to say,


    I can't believe all that I've seen today! I am humbled by what I have seen put forth today by the Iranian people.

    Good morning Tehran! A new day dawns, both literally and figuratively. You are an amazing group of people. Keep it up, we're right here with you as much as we can be.

    I'm smiling... really, I am. Thank you!!

    Esteghlal, Azadi, Jomhorie Irani!!

    Friday prayers speaker is Janati. He has always been supporter of Ahmadinejad.
  12. maxoud Member

    According to norooznews there were more than 40 thousands of mourners Yesterday at Behesht-Zahra.

    I don't know why always the TVs like CNN, BBC, etc, give numbers which are very much less than the real number of protesters.
    Iranian government is always condemning them while I think they can be a good friend of the regime with this kind of estimations.

    Gah...Poor Niteowl must be going crazy sorting through everything...It's nearly two am here...I was hoping for a GB before bed...Hard to let myself be too impatient knowing all the info there is to sort through. I hope the weather down at the south pole is nice right now. ;)

    Good night/good morning.

    Shouldn't be long before we wake to see the headlines of "A Free Iran" and everyone in the countries ignoring this movement asking "When did this happen?!?!"
  16. LOL, sorry, didn't see this was in this thread, too.

    Don't think I've seen this particular one before.
    (I think it's a video taken from a different perspective of one of the earlier videos)
