Iranian People Continue their Movement Despite Reports

The Associated Press reported that Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei may be a casualty in the vote crisis.   For the first time in three decades, the Iranian people have openly defied Khamenei.  One week after the Iranian presidential election, Khamenei proclaimed that the election will not be annuled and that while there may have been irregularities, the elections were legitimate.  Khamenei also warned any and all protesters, clearly stating that if demonstrators continued in the streets, “there will be blood shed.”  Khamenei stood by his word and the following day, his militia, basiji and police forces took to the streets in a violent response unlike any seen before in previous days.

Demonstrators continued to take to the streets as Khameni and the regime continue to take a more brutal and forceful response using not only deadly weapons including axes, chains and battons, but aiming for fatal wounds with their guns.  While there has been less activity online from the streets of Iran, the news has continuously been coming through.  Twitter and facebook traffic has decreased or has been delayed.

Direct reports to us from Iranians inside Iran tell us that the resolve of the of the people to stand up against this regime has never been stronger.  Iranians will continue to take to the streets and use nonviolent methods of civil disobedience against the regime.  Strikes are planned as well as sit-ins and resignations of key governmental agencies.  The regime has made a choice – to crush and oppress the people all all costs.  Even if it means the lives of its own people.
