cnn-just started reporting...about 2 hours behind....nothing about what is currently happening....just reporting about Friday prayers & Rasi.speech....saying crowds dispersed...well CNN is good for missing the point.
It's all quite deliberate.
Most journalists are no longer doing their jobs.
I think this is a bit old, but....:

I'm not sure if it looks like they are about to storm the interior ministry...

This is a good one
Pro government prayer leaders try to get people to chant "death to America, death to Israel, death to England" but people respond by chanting "Death to Russia"
waldo is slightly to the left of the center man.
@Shahramirani: RT Police arrested 2 ppl as I saw , ppl shouted 'let him go' and they let them go! then ppl applause
Good! Very happy to hear that
Nice! Heh heh
LOL no shoop Waldo into it
Okay, so we were expecting a Evin Day rivaling Bastille Day, but perhaps Iranians have other plans.. Which is fine, I am sure they know exactly what they are doing...
Love it! It really is a good one!
He is trying to make them chant "Death to Britain"... (circa:"Mark bar Ingliies").
They want to create the new enemy, and don't recognize, they are the new enemy .
thx for all the new updates and the great posters !
i second this.
Lots of reports of crowds outside Evin. I cnt get anyone who cn confirm. Pls B careful, they cn shoot prisoners if attacked. #iranelection1 minute ago from TweetDeck
Back to Rafsanjani's speech
I know it seems like hours ago now, but spouse & I have just gone through it all, and spouse thinks it's brilliant. That in the Islamic Republic he could not have done any more (and kept his head)
It's all the there, the subtle attacks on the regime, the encouragement to the people, the challenge to the regime to make unity with the people.
Spouse is not a Rafsanjani fan, but thinks he has done a fantastic job in this speech. And even if we don't see it yet, has actually sounded the death knell (no violence here!) for the regime as we know - that it can never be the same again.
[I cannot confirm any of these, and I am work with a comp w/ no sound, so cannot confirm videos either. If anyone can I'd appreciate it]

Oxford girl was coming to similar opinions regarding the speech. Its hard for us in western counties to see how its impact and importance is locally without actually living there.

Just because American media aren't reporting protests in iran doesn't mean they aren't still happening #Iranelection
Yeah Vee, it's really hard for us, but we've got to trust those who do know and can interpret the subtleties for us that we miss!
But even for us, if we look at it there is nothing there whatsoever to back Amamadman in any way, indeed it's all clear about the lack of legitimacy because of the media blackout, the illegal arrests etc. I just would never have picked up on the links between Mohammad and the current leadership etc.
Iran Uprising Blogging: Latest Updates
An interesting take by a reader of the Huffington Post...I saw other readers make the same conclusion on that sidewalks blog earlier.
"The Imam [Khomeini] would always quote the Prophet [Muhammad] who would say to Ali [Muhammad's successor]: leave the people if they do not want you."
Wow, I can't believe it! We had just studied that line a few minutes ago and said "there it is! that is a very clear message to Khaminidiot and Amamadman"
The speech gets better by the minute! What is taking us Westerners hours to work out, Persians are seeing immediately, no wonder they had the courage to protest after Friday prayers! They heard and understood exactly what was being said!
Aren't they brilliant!!!!!
What the...that's crazy!
Wonder what this means....
Al Jazeera has probably had the best coverage so far
Absolutely. I agree completely. Frankly I and other Iranians were not too optimistic about his speech and were hoping he wouldn't come out and speak of "national unity" and throw his support for khamenei. To my complete surprise he did completely the opposite. Yes he did not come out and bluntly say "ahmadinejad is illegitimate" but he picked his words very very carefully in order to avoid the rise of emotions among the pro gov't goons that were there but still cleverly made it clear to the people that he is with the opposition.
Why are the media not reporting the now 1.2 millions of Iranians on the streets of Tehran to say nothing of in other cities? ppl have surrounded Evin prison and the Iranian media headquarters--in huge numbers. Twitter reports that city police are refusing orders to attack the crowds. A blackout is planned for this evening. Iranians are asked to turn on all their lights, tv, cd players, microwaves, vacuum cleaners, blenders, and so on.
Cnn is talking about it again. They mentioned the chants about Russia and are showing pics from the prayers. They showed the Mousavi one and one of Karroubi near the front earlier. I didn't notice an injury.
They also went into some parts of the speech for a couple of minutes.
Then they went back to Jakarta coverage.
Welcome back EPG - did you get a good sleep? Look at all you have missed while you've been away!
BBC persian is doing a very good analysis on it right now.
An ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness
