Payvand.com - We were all determined to go together to Valiasar Square for
today's demonstration in support of Mr Mousavi and Mr Karoubi who do not accept
the election results after the gigantic and unprecedented march yesterday which
filled Tehran from Enghelab Square to Azadi Square. People wanted to show that
despite the bloodshed they believe in a civil society and can and will follow
and show their determination to get what many now call their Stolen Election!
Our Protest: The Green Silence March
we started getting calls and e-mails that the opposition have called a demo at
the same place but one hour earlier. Messages were sent that the opposition
demonstration has been called off and it is better not to go. Then we got
reports that there are thugs with knives among the crowd. So we got less and

Where Is My Vote

Avenue became filled.
Change For Iran
huge sense of unity and togetherness. It was simply great to be among one's
country folks and we all were there because we felt that our citizenship must be
taken seriously. We wanted to show that we know what is good for us and our
decision and our votes must be respected.
Today is the day of mourning for university
Empty hands always win over bullets
the time I file this report many changes may have taken place. This is a country
where anything is possible, and at such times like now, it's so volatile and
full of promises, some good and some bad. There is news that the students of
many universities across
Iran are up in arms over what has been going on in Iran . Please keep
your fingers crossed for all people in Iran and pray the forces of good prevail.
