I'm up. It's going to take a while to get through all these pages...good thing I don't plan on doing anything at work today besides "reading papers". Thanks those of you who stayed up to keep this going.

Are we getting a new live thread soon?

What is "Majlis Khobregan", is that the same council that was supposed to be meeting last night? They are supposedly calling an emergency meeting now.

*sigh* FINALLY caught up. Thank you so much, ONTD_P, for bringing this to my attention yesterday and for keeping us all updated.

Actually using Twitter is kind of weird. I'm still not used to it.

My house has a distinct lack of green fabric -- do you think green nail polish would be symbolic enough?

I've hunted up some green nail polish from my Mother's room and have color-coordinated all of my nails with a green tank top - so, yes, by all means! :)

I have to say, I am only a lurker here, but I am so grateful for this community right now.

I just posted something on facebook, since no-one I know has yet, even days later, not even some of the most politically conscious people I know, the kind of people who were going mental when the BNP got two seats in the European Parliament elections either don't know or care, which is so annoying, because no matter how vile the BNP are they were voted in democratically through free elections, yet now when people in Iran are being denied the right to elect who they want, no-one cares :(

From Twitter: Iranian state prosecutor: Will seek death penalty for "select organizers". Focusing on those relying on "outside media" for spreading news.

Is there any outside confirmation on this?
