A tl;dr of so far...
Police and militia forces turned out in force early this morning to prevent crowds from gathering and marching as previously planned and announced. This led to small clashes throughout Tehran as small groups of protesters attempted to gather.
Iranian State TV reported a suicide bomber attacked the tomb of Khomenei, and has since reported that arrested demonstrators are confessing to having been trained in the U.S. There has been no definitive proof of an attack on the tomb.
Momentum grew throughout the day and the crowds began to collect in places not as heavily guarded by the police/militia, and began to turn the security forces back.
As of now, demonstrations are widespread in Tehran and in other cities around the country.
Mousavi called for a general strike if he is arrested.
UNCONFIRMED REPORTS are that Khamenei has been relocated to a military base for protection.

How do we get the other embassy's to open up? By mail or what? They need more help
RT from Iran I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH, MULTIPLE SOURCES CONFIRM: BASIJ ARE AT HOSPITALS. GO TO EMBASSIES. HOSPITAL = DEATH
Call, works better. You are outside Iran can require more embassies open the doors to Iranians, innocent people are dying on the street.
Would a custom google map with locations of embassies open to injured Iranians help?
If yes (would there be bandwidth issues?), can someone with more skill make one?
Tehrān, Iran - Google Maps
category:Embassy loc: Tehrān, Iran - Google Maps
Would it help if we could tell people with contacts on the ground, where the nearest safe/open embassies are?
PLEASE ALL foreign FRIENDS, FOR HELPING INNOCENT people are dying in the street because there is NOT AMBULANCE, REQUIREMENTS OF YOUR COUNTRY TO OPEN DOORS FOR IRANIAN MAY SEEK PROTECTION IN EMBASSY. PLZ
FB report: shouts of Allah o Akbar in holy city of Mashhad "explosive" -- loudest it has ever been.
