:O I go to bed and crazy things happen. Thirty minutes after mentioning getting anonymous to join the fray, it fucking does (given, its fringe-anon). And the exiled-prince is coming back, and all sorts of crazy stuff :O

You guys are awesome for keeping me updated~!<3

I know this is a pretty serious thread so far, but we need a little humor to cheer us up (andddd hopefully not just make everyone feel worse):

daily show clips (won't embed in comments for some reason)

I can't watch them at work, but is Jason Jones still in Iran or was he back in the studio?

Don't know if this was posted, but it basically talks about how the last two election protests are nothing in comparision to this.

Any USA rallys this week? I know there was one in Washington DC yesterday that I couldn't go to. Would love to meet up with other ONTDP.

I'm interested in figuring this out too! I'm hoping that there'll be another tonight or tomorrow in DC. Coudln't go the other day. So far, I haven't been able to find anything. :(

The BBC website is pretty good for Iran updates. There's a good Who's Who of the country's main figures.

A Yahoo Message From Iran

A reader relays his friend's message from the scene:
They have arrested anybody they know. Some mullahs been arrested too, like Mohammad-Ali Abtahi.
They have blocked chat too. No chat. No mobile. No SMS. Nothing. And they are collecting all the satellite dishes. Twitter is blocked too. The only radio talking about protest 24 hours a day is Radio Farda, but we cant hear it good. I can hear it by satellite, but by radio it is so weak. [They are jamming it.] They are collecting satellite dishes.

The US should add a transmitter in Iraq. Radio Farda's only transmitter is in Dubai, so they need to add new one in Iraq.

The US should add a transmitter in Iraq.

That's going to look real good and not sketchy and propagandaish and foreign interventiony, and counter to the Mousavi movement AT ALL. *eyeroll*

Aww... Hugs all around ONTD_P. You all have been amazing with keeping the info moving and credible as well as providing a great support system for those who feel a need to do SOMETHING/ ANYTHING.
One thing I have to ask: Does anyone know where I can get streaming coverage of the aftermath while at work? I need to get something done today, but it is very difficult knowing all of this is going on.

PS - I actually broke down and cried after checking my Twitter feed and seeing Change_For_Iran is back up and tweeting. Who knew any of us would get so invested in Twitter?
ao_kiddo 16th-Jun-2009 04:19 pm (UTC)
I boycotted twitter. But I am going to make an account as soon as I go on lunch.

I don't need to be at work rn.

Is this the Ansar they're talking about?

persiankiwi hackers pls target vezarat ershad website - we know they jaming from that proxy

How can we do this? Is this something a DDoS attack can do?
speaker 16th-Jun-2009 04:24 pm (UTC)
Maybe? I'm not familiar with this kind of stuff, but I saw this yesterday on boingboing: activists launch hack attacks

looks like it has some resources on what to do and how to do it

Oh my god! Did the man survive?

ah shit things aren't going well, are they? how is the "no-working" strike going? I wake up and find out that apparently Yahoo mail is not working, so there goes one of my contacts from the Shiraz area...anyways, good morning guys. :(
phookie 16th-Jun-2009 04:24 pm (UTC)
I mean that yahoo mail is not working in Iran, of course.
