Ugh I went on that dumb girl's twitter that replied to Alyssa Milano and it's pissing me off so much. I shouldn't let it, because she really is just dumb.

@Alyssa_Milano Why are you so political? They are all just a bunch of biast power hungrey sons of bitches, that really don't give a fuck.

ProtesterHelp New private #Iran proxy server up *BULLET*PROOF* for 72-96 hours, need 50 people in #Iran who need accounts, 72bp@austinheap.com

I hope to God that the proxy server is solidly bulletproof. It would be great to have something like that for them.

requinnn 17th-Jun-2009 01:25 am (UTC)

ProtesterHelpURGENT: BASIJI DRESSING AS SOLDIERS TO CREATE CHAOS. ارايش‌ بسيجي ها به عنوان سرباز به هرج و مرج ايجاد كند #iranelection

augh.

Yeah. Basiji and the other party are creating havoc, but the army seems to be uncooperative. which ... augh. :/ it seems more like a tactic to cause crowd confusion + panic + disinfo

Since these whole thing has been going on, ONE other person on my friends list on Facebook has updated their status with something about Iran.

Why am I friends with all these people?
poetic_pixie_13 17th-Jun-2009 01:30 am (UTC)
Same here, and she's a member of ontd_p. Clearly we need new friends. At least one girl saw my status and asked me what was going on. =/

okay, I'm just madly refreshing the #iranelection hashtag at the moment, so:

-- dangermaus: RT from Iran: last night thousands stayed in streets between Parkway and Vanak sq until after 2am - #Iranelection

-- akhtar_assad: only baseej militia and Etellaat folowing orders - they cannot contain country without Army -- (this suggests it's ground-level soldiers, too, but I don't know how true that is or how good internal military communication is right now)

-- TAKINGNOTICE: NBC Tehran Bureau Chief reports many people killed yesterday (contrary to CNN report that "one person was killed." -- this fits with other reports
lone_concertina 17th-Jun-2009 01:31 am (UTC)
dangermaus's status is an exact quote from persiankiwi. So much for rephrasing.
cursed_hyphen 17th-Jun-2009 01:31 am (UTC)
Aw, HuffPo's Nico Pitney on Rachel. Looking surprisingly not that sleep-deprived.

RT means re-tweet right? I just got a twitter and I want to help. What # tags should I have with the tweet?
filbypott 17th-Jun-2009 01:31 am (UTC)
Yes, that is what RT means.
lone_concertina 17th-Jun-2009 01:33 am (UTC)
ProtesterHelp Soldiers have not attacked, attacking "soldiers" are Basiji playing dressup. #iranelection less than a minute ago from web
filbypott 17th-Jun-2009 01:34 am (UTC)
Basiji are basically Blackshirts, I take it?
this_love_lies 17th-Jun-2009 01:35 am (UTC)
Question for ONTD_P Junkies...
What happens if the rumors concerning the Iranian army are true and they continue to not comply with the Iranian government, but the government still has help from Hezbollah and Basij forces? What does that mean for the protestors and for the remaining civilians?
saigonostalker 17th-Jun-2009 01:37 am (UTC)
Civil war?
beautifiers 17th-Jun-2009 01:35 am (UTC)
persiankiwi it is now dawn in tehran - streets are quiet - we must move from here - this was good internet connection but not ours - #Iranelection
forevertiffanys 17th-Jun-2009 01:37 am (UTC)
This is so nerve racking.
ariesangel404 17th-Jun-2009 01:37 am (UTC)
Okay everybody I got some wallpapers together. I'll be submitting them to DA tomorrow but I wanted to share with everybody here first. I can't submit anything with pictures to DA because of the ToS about manipulating images that aren't stock photos. ETC. ETC. If you click on the images, you'll get a zip file to download with all of the diff wallpaper sizes. I hope that's okay. Share! :D

My generation is tired of being disillusioned. We refuse to accept the status quo and we have risen up in defiance. I am not sure how long it will take for the totalitarians to crush our resistance. For now though, we’re holding up just fine. We’re holding up fine even though our brothers at Basij and the police are murdering their dear fellow Iranians. We’re holding up even though you bash us with clubs and batons and try to suffocate us with your tear gas.

A nation stands tall refusing to succumb that easily.

-- xsam0: confirmed: undercover agents inside peaceful crowds cause havoc and start fights with soldiers. RT very important #iranelection #gr88

AUGH.

-- linux07ster: anonymous proxy service with instructions. #iranelection #gr88 @austinheap http://torir.org/

fuck I hope it stays up

-- apparently all ABC journos have been thrown out of Iran due to govt refusing to continue press passes/visas and the like.

-- "RT reliable hospital sources say that at least 8 killed in Azadi sq Monday" & "RT @[snip] now dawn in tehran - streets are quiet - must move from here - this was good internet connection but not ours"

It sounds like things are dying down a bit.
