    I'm getting sick. Well when you read sick stuff that's what happens.

    I'm tired.

    Could someone please remind me of what we can do to help right now? I could use a little encouragement.

    Well you could start doing a job that I was thinking of doing soon - start making a list of all the things that show that the murderous Iranian regime is on the run. If we had such a list we could all add to it and be motivated to keep doing our own small things - whatever they are.

    You know - things like:
    * Regime still afraid of journalists
    * Regime still afraid of Iranian bloggers etc
    * Army talking of dying to stop (unarmed) protestors

    I think I can add a few things to the list directly from the latest Green Brief:

    2. Vast weekly protests and the heavy presence of Basiji’s have had a negative impact on Iranian bazaars; they are finding it harder and harder to stay open. As a result, commerce is slowly coming to a standstill.

    3. People in Tehran are continuing to honk their horns at the sight of Basijis - and chanting anti-government slogans while speeding away. Many people drive with their headlights on. Reports indicate that many Basijis are quitting their jobs and are being replaced by fresh recruits, many of them under 18.

    8. The spokesperson for Parliament's Imam’s Way Faction declared that the government’s legitimacy was “questionable” after what transpired post-election. Reports from Tehran indicate that many members within the Faction are thinking of not partaking in the “vote of confidence” that will be held in Parliament soon (the President selects a cabinet, and then a vote of confidence takes place).

    Yes, all good stuff.
    My personal preference would be to see a very long list of extremely concise items - in single lines where possible, which still cover every little bit of progress. It would also be good to get it into some sort of timeline so that the various trends become more apparent.

    One way to get a proper chronology could be going through all the previous Green Briefs and pulling out the events indicating the end of the times for Amadaman...

    As to rearrange my earlier post:

    From Green Brief 25 (11 July):

    * Shops are having a hardtime to stay open
    * Basijis are quitting their jobs and are replaced by bunch of kids
    * Imam's Way is considering boycotting the Vote of Confidence

    Yes, I think we should keep copy/pasting and adding to that.

    took me a while to wrap my head around the idea.
