MY DAD JUST TRANSLATED THE REZA SHAH LETTER!

found here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/16466443/The-Prince-is-Going-Home

he said that he says how the situations of iran is hurting and troubling to him and that young people, men and women, are getting killed and we need to act. he says he wants all iranians to unite, no matter what things divide them, all the opposition should unite against the government. and he says he'd like to go to iran, and is looking to arrive there in 48 hours.

but my dad doesn't think he could do that, they would kill him if he stepped foot in iran, not the people but the government.

Yep same thoughts as your dad. That's like a deathwish, even with Iran in a state of chaos.

Hey, if you guys notice users purposefully spreading wrong information or malicious sites, make sure to report them by sending a private message to @Spam
They are pretty quick about deleting these accounts because what they are doing is against Twitter's TOS.

Right now I'm reporting @FreeMediaNews because they are very obviously spreading false information to confuse people, and impersonating other users through false RTs.

I LOVE THE NEW LAYOUT!

Who made it? I totally said 'We're running this, let's go' earlier today. XD

Has this been posted yet? I guess I don't have to put a warning since the other videos have been graphic, but the ending to this is really sad.

My mom just read it for me -- it's a letter from the university administrators. Essentially, it says that on Sunday, plainclothes officers came into the university to beat up students and destroy property. No act of such violence had happened at the university in the last fifty years, and they demand that the people who committed these acts be brought to justice.

Man, it's difficult to make an argument in 140 signs -_-

BBC America has returned to news about the protest! I'll post the gist of it for people who don't have the channel. It's an interview with an author and professor.

She is speaking of the change in the population and their maturation - how they no longer are afraid to rise up against the "paradox" of the Islamic Republic. The ruling elite has joined the people while the division deepens. They are gathering momentum because of help from important people.
