    I have a few questions and also some services to offer;
    Are there any protests or other means of putting pressure on the UK Government regarding this planned or in action? I want to be involved if so, if not I will set something up.
    Also, I'm @Stephanieboland on twitter, and am setting up proxies/tweeting embassy numbers or information; does anyone know the best people to send this on to?

    Thank you,
    Steph

    Stephanie it would be great if you could also paste / submit a list of embassies on here seeing how the forums are a less volatile way of communicating than twitter.

    Thank You

    There are too many to list the info of all, but the page above has them all listed with details.

    UK Embassy in Iran
    http://ukiniran.fco.gov.uk/en/
    Duty Officer at: (98) 0912-322-9281.
    Consular Team in London
    020 7008 1500 (+44 020 7008 1500 from abroad)
    This number operates 24 hours a day

    Some British news sources (ITV and Sky) are picking up the twitter hashtags and reporting on them, but the BBC is still behind and reporting the recount and 'seven dead' stories.
    Apparently there were protests on the 14th here in London; has anyone found any sources for this? I can't find it on any of our news channels.
    Similarly does anyone have resources particularly for UK citizens who wish to help? I have a lot of time and more importantly safety and freedom to lend.

    Protesters rally outside Iranian embassy in London

    1 day ago

    LONDON (AFP) Around 200 people demonstrated outside the Iranian embassy in London on Sunday against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election.

    "There are around about 200 people," a spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police told AFP, adding that the demonstrations had so far been peaceful and no one had been arrested.

    Demonstrators chanted and waved Iranian flags, along with placards reading "Where is my vote?"

    In Tehran, Ahmadinejad defended his re-election at a mass victory rally but his defeated rival demanded the result be scrapped, setting the stage for further tense confrontations after the authorities cracked down on opposition protests.

    Violence erupted for the second day in Tehran as supporters of Amadinejad's closest challenger Mir Hossein Mousavi clashed with riot police after an election that has set off deep divisions in the oil-rich republic.
