Video on oldouz84's YouTube channel uploaded tonight (6/19/2008) in Tehran:

Tonight the sound of "God is Great" can be heard louder and louder than previous nights
Where is this?! Where is this place where everything has been blocked?
Where is this place where people are just shouting the name of God?
Where is this place where the sound of "God is Great" can be heard louder and louder?
Everyday I'm just waiting to see if there will be more and louder voices at nights?
My body trembles
... and I wonder if God trembles too?
Where is this where we've been imprisoned so innocently?
Where is this where no one gives us a helping hand?!
Where is this place, where we are getting our voices heard worldwide through our silence?
Where is this place where the blood of its young people is shed on the streets..., where people stand and pray on their blood?
Where is this place where its people are called "gangsters" and "thugs"?!
Where is this?
This is Iran. This is my land and yours!
This is Iran

it is just shomal-e Tehran

by Kurush (not verified) on

They brought it upon themselves, In north Korea it would be met with utmost ruthlessness,; in China it would be met with utmost ruthlessness; in Russia, it owuld be met with utmost ruthlessness. In France;s recent street riots, Sarkozy similarly warned them of ZERO tolerance; Margaret Thatcher had ZERO tolerance for public protests of even the mildest type. Reagan sacked the entire airport tower controllers and did not allow them to be rehired. Now these Tehranis! They had many freedoms which now will be taken from them. There will be a harsher authoritarian government which like America will creat a prison-industrial complex (incarcerating 2.5 millions), or a huge army training the recruits, its young generation, how to be obedient ( you know how it is in the Army, OBEY & SHUT UP), either way they will learn how to behave. You do not know what you've got untill you lose it! It grieves me that we Iranians do not have a better imagination, just being destructive rather than constructive.

    Beautiful Poem Mona 19

    by 11101932 (not verified) on

    You sound like the magnificent Tahereh. There is something precious about the tenderness, courage, and eloquence of many Iranian women. May more and more Iranian women leave the veil of darkness and lead Iran to where it belongs -- to the forefront of the civilized, ethical, and free people.

    Your poem touched me deeply. God bless you.

    Mona 19

    كه بنيان جفا و جور، بي بنياد مي‌گردد...

    Mona 19

    "تپیدنهاي دلها ناله شد، آهسته آهسته
    رساتر گر شود اين ناله‌ها، فرياد مي‌گردد
    ز اشك و آه مردم بوي خون آيد، كه آهن را
    دهي گر آب و آتش، دشنه فولاد مي‌گردد
    دلم از اين خرابيها بُـوَد خوش، زانكه مي‌دانم
    خرابي چون كه از حد بگذرد، آباد مي‌گردد
    ز بيداد فزون آهنگري گمنام و زحمتكش
    علمدار و عَـلَم، چون كاوة حداد مي‌گردد
    به ويرانيِ اين اوضاع، هستم مطمئن، زانرو
    كه بنيان جفا و جور، بي بنياد مي‌گردد"

    by Anonymous azadi (not verified) on

    God! If you really exist, now is the time to show yourself! Now is the time for you to support these defenseless but brave people. Now is the time for you to hear the crys of those calling your name at night on the rooftops and reaching out to you.

    Please no more "hekmate elaahi", no more "secret reasons" for your inaction. This time, help us! Please, this time don't be indifferent. It is the last chance for me and many others to keep our faith in you!

    We all supported our

    by andisheh (not verified) on

    We all supported our brethren in Iran to vote in their best interest. We also supported them in their protest of the cheating that took place in the election. Why should we abandon them now? We can't always change what is unjust, and we can't always forget the injustices done to us. What we can do is support our friends and family in Iran, no matter what. They're actually effected by the results of the election, while we only care because it's "our country". Well why not care like they care; it's ten times more important to them. If they could change the results, they would. If they could get their justice they would. But they can't, they are being oppressed. So all we can do is cry with them? Since when? We can share our knowledge of democracy. Share with them our knowledge of how to organize and demonstrate. Not just to say we tried, but to make sure it doesn't happen again. Whose Iran is it? Ours of peace? Or Ahmaghnijad's of dictatorship and oppression?

    FYI/letter from medical student in Iran (recieved on Blackberry)

    by Darius Kadivar on

    Subject: Fw: letter from medical student


    "What I have witnessed." A powerful note from a female medical student in Iran, translated from Farsi by a trusty reader.


    It's painful to watch what's happening.

    I don't want anything to do with what has been said this far, as I neither have the strength nor the resilience to face all these unfathomable events.

    I only want to speak about what I have witnessed. I am a medical student. There was chaos last night at the trauma section in one of our main hospitals. Although by decree, all riot-related injuries were supposed to be sent to military hospitals, all other hospitals were filled to the rim. Last night, nine people died at our hospital and another 28 had gunshot wounds. All hospital employees were crying till dawn. They (government) removed the dead bodies on back of trucks, before we were even able to get their names or other information. What can you even say to the people who don't even respect the dead. No one was allowed to speak to the wounded or get any information from them. This morning the faculty and the students protested by gathering at the lobby of the hospital where they were confronted by plain cloths anti-riot militia, who in turn closed off the hospital and imprisoned the staff. The extent of injuries are so grave, that despite being one of the most staffed emergency rooms, they've asked everyone to stay and help--I'm sure it will even be worst tonight.

    What can anyone say in face of all these atrocities? What can you say to the family of the 13 year old boy who died from gunshots and whose dead body then disappeared?

    This issue is not about cheating(election) anymore. This is not about stealing votes anymore. The issue is about a vast injustice inflected on the people. They've put a baton in the hand of every 13-14 year old to smash the faces of "the bunches who are less than dirt" (government is calling the people who are uprising dried-up torn and weeds)

    This is what sickens me from dealing with these issues. And from those who shut their eyes and close their ears and claim the riots are in opposition of the government and presidency!! No! The people's complaint is against the egregious injustices committed against the people.

    But becareful when you go to different sites... as you all know, there would some website and blogs that has been designed by IR to trace and  identify people all over the world.... and it is so easy to trace IP and find your location/address..I do not mean to scare you but I am talking to people who do not know that much about IP or ISP..once you click on their link you are in their list..


    Basiji, stop killing your brothers and sisters .. if you dont, you will have to live the rest of your life, with "azabe vojdan..." keep your concious clear.

     پریشانی ایران

    ای دوست ببین بی سر و سامانی ایران
     بدبختی ایران و پریشانی ایران

    از قبر برون آی و ببین ذلت ما را 
    این ذلت ایرانی و ویرانی ایران

    آوخ که لحد ، جای تو شد تا بقیامت !
    رفتی و ندیدی تو پریشانی ایران :

    از وضع کنونی و زبدبختی ملت
    زین فقر و پریشانی و ویرانی ایران

    گردیده جهان تیره و گشته ست دلم تنگ
    گوئی که شدم حبسی و زندانی ایران

    بگرفته دلم سخت زاوضاع کنونی
    بیچارگی و محنت و حیرانی ایران

     عشقی  بود ، ار نوحه گر امروز عجب نیست
    خون می چکد از دیدۀ ایرانی و ایران

    When the people rise up

    by An American friend (not verified) on

    When the people rise up against an oppressor, it inspires people throughout the world.

    I'm sure that the bravery of the Iranian people is thrilling to subjugated people everywhere, and terrifying to leaders who rule, not on behalf of their people, but only to increase their own power.

    Although our government is staying strictly out of this issue--we have a better leader now--everyone I know in the United States supports you. And dictators around the world are frightened.

    Thank you. The spread of truth is the world's best hope. I wish you success in your peaceful effort to bring change to your country.
