I really hope that 'chest bullet' doesn't mean what I think it means D:

ONTD_P, you all are amazing. I go away for 6 hours and I come back to 5 pages of Woah!
PS - My boss was nice enough to ask me if I had a 'rough' night. How lovely.
500,000 marched in silence today in Tehran. What else happened?

That's too expensive!

The more pictures I see of the protests etc... the more amazed I am of the Iranian women. I am in awe. Feminists in this country could take a huge lesson from these women.

I second this. Their courage is incredible.

Brings new meaning to the term "speedreading"!

Slightly OT, but does anyone else know why the audio goes silent around the 2/3 mark in a lot of protester videos?

It may be the compression. Not sure.

Change_for_Iran finally updated: it's 9:12pm, land phone lines was out (always busy) in some areas of city & I couldn't access to Internet.

I was worried about him/her.

'At the 2010 World Cup Asian qualifier football match between South Korea and Iran at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on June 17, 2009, the Iranian team members wear green wristbands in solidarity.'

I'm sure it's already been posted, but I had to add this. Do you guys get what that means?! OMG. That would be like the NY Yankees or the US Olympic Team uniting behind Obama / McCain. Except bigger.

Just incredible. To me, that shows how this can no longer be seen as a fringe movement- this is really the PEOPLE of IRan vs. their government.

There's definitely a new energy and force behind these protests, and the support is there at so many different levels of the Iranian infrastructure.

We may really be seeing something here.
