One girl who is my facebook friend is FROM Iran but all she has put up was something stupid about her "future ex-husband".

Nice.

Can Rachel Maddow please just narrate my life? I could listen to her 24/7 and never get sick of her insight and comments.

She had some EXCELLENT coverage just now on the situation in Iran, and interviewed Nico who has been doing the HuffPo live post

Alright, but only if I can have Morgan Freeman narrate mine.

I was wondering why the info on the Huffpo page had stopped. Then I remembered Nico Pitney was supposed to be on Rachel's show.

Anyone watch?

I just got an @ message from someone that's being engaging.

"So they should lay down and be dictated to?"

¬_¬ All I said was the violence needs to stop. Where the fuck did I say that I want them to be dictated to? I don't like people DEAD at the hands of the very body that's supposed to protect them. They have to fight back, sure, but it's still proving that violence begets violence and it needs to stop.

How about if I had just said I don't like people dying. They're willing to make the sacrifice and I commend that, but god damn it... I'm running out of words to articulate how I feel. I still don't like people dying.

idk. nonviolent resistance does't dictate how the other side reacts to said resistance. it just means they have the higher moral/ethical ground.

Okay I have been entirely too wrapped up in this since late Saturday/early Sunday and it's taking its toll on me, emotionally and physically. My boyfriend is forcibly prying me away for the rest of the night so we can go swimming and I can (hopefully) think about something other than this. Thanks in advance for keeping me updated on everything when I check all the pages I missed tomorrow morning.

UGH BUT FIRST, in reply to my fbk status of "A nation stands tall refusing to succumb that easily." Someone I knew in high school replied with: "...too bad its not ours"

Good thing I still hate you, dick.

from #iranelection:

"IranianJohnDoe: Makhmalbaf: European Parliament would help Iranians to fight their civil rights in this election."

another cleric?

also, this keeps getting retweeted -- "greenlasagna: RT IRan: NEW Graphic video protestor shot today in Tehran http://bit.ly/2mo9z5" -- can anyone confirm if it's actually new? I know there's been a few old vids posted/retweeted.
mercaque 17th-Jun-2009 01:52 am (UTC)
another cleric?

If you mean Makhmalbaf, he is the filmmaker living in Europe, who has been one of Mousavi's spokespeople abroad. He was the other filmmaker along with Marjane Satrapi who supposedly got the "real" election results.

I've posted a new article here! Not as good as the last, but it was really bothering me that the people I got to care yesterday stopped caring mere minutes later. Feel free to repost! The original is here

Posting on Facebook :D Good job bb.
omgggwth 17th-Jun-2009 01:53 am (UTC)
I was just forced to get all angry on FB when someone I was talking to in FBIMs told me 'who cares about Iran?'. Urg. No. Bad.

moar #iranelection:

"christmasfairie: Many people have been killed by stabbing in Shiraz last night-#Iranelection" -- idk if this is true or not? but D: D: D: if it is. most news has just been out of Tehran so far and other areas don't have the same overwhelming numbers, I think, so there's higher risk of violence. not surprising if it's confirmed, but ... D:

"heartburnkid: RT: Help the people of Iran by running a proxy server! New version 0.3 http://bit.ly/v3iAb (expand) runs in VirtualBox. #iranelection #gr88"

This looks promising -- I haven't seen this tweeted before (yet).

O HAI NY ontd_pers, a rally for you!: "thefreedom09: Massive support rally announced for Iran in NewYork June 17, Union Square, 7-9 PM. JOIN IT!!! and show support #iranelection #newyork"

"nurmsoo: RT Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri denounces the coup! http://www.mcclatchydc.com/iran/story/70155.html #IranElection" -- aha, further news on who he is. good to know it's a different cleric from the one that backslid earlier! looks promising.

-- "jthomasbailey: RT @pstarnes how2 set up a proxy on rackspace: http://tinyurl.com/nvujle (expand) #iranelection #iran #iran9"

MOAR PROXIES, yet another method. this is good.

-- apparently lots of protests in Tabriz, but nothing specific so far.

wtf i wish my dad was still in the states, i would've MADE him take me into the city (though tbh there's a 99% chance he'd go into the city for a rally like this anyway) ughh D: I'M WITH YOU ALL IN SPIRIT
ariesangel404 17th-Jun-2009 01:59 am (UTC)
I'm gonna lay down guys. I've had a stomach virus for the past few days and it's taking a toll on me. I'll be back in the morning hopefully. More wallpapers tomorrow :D
