The Morning of Monday 7th December in Tehran

By A Citizen Journalist, Tehran

Last night the weather turned very dark and cold and it was raining for many hours. We had to turn the heating up as we were all feeling the cold. I was wondering what tomorrow will be like. This morning my heart lit up as I opened the curtains and saw the sun shining and it was a new beginning.

As I got to 7th Tir Square on my way to work, almost everything seemed normal except a few police vans near the metro station. But all along I could see the glaring eyes towards the station but it was quiet and everybody was going about their own business; so I thought maybe it will be later, as I headed towards the street that took me to work.

There I thought how could a regime have alienated so many different people, such a diverse group of people that share the same aspirations and demands; these groups includes young and old, middle and working class, rich and poor and the list goes on.

One thing I know for sure that no matter how you count the dissident groups one thing is certain - the dissatisfaction has long passed its critical mass, and it can never be stopped now. The only thing the rulers can do is to delay it; but this way they make the final outcome faster and deeper.

I admire all our children who so bravely in all parts of our country stand and demand change. When will the rulers wise up and respond positively? I doubt soon, since as the regime becomes more and more frightened they take more drastic measures as they did today by arresting again some more student leaders. But there will be others, and more and more of the youth of our great nation will rise up and show how they are dissatisfied and have had enough of this 15th century orthodoxy.

The time for change is near!
