  1. -Called :
    – Austrian : blocked (Australian is near so probably blocked too).
    – German : blocked
    – Belgian : blocked

    Rumoured :
    – Finnish : probably blocked (same city neighborhood than US, German, Belgian embassies)
    – UK and irish : said to be blocked on twitter

    Closed or not phone reachable :
    – Polish (phone problem)
    – Portuguese (phone answering machine)
    – French (embassy refused to speak, probably closed)
    – Russian : closed and guarded
    – China : closed and guarded too
    – Spain : (phone problem)
    – Mexican : (phone answering machine)

    Not tested yet
    – Italian
    – Norwegian

    Remember Basij read your blog. Change it constantly and add false rumours with hints.

    ONE ADVISE : try third world embassies, they aren’t heavily guarded by embassy guards and I don’t believe, iranian gov. will think about them.

    • This is noted but will not be removed in the event it does. People are to refer to the list, not the maps when finding safe places to go. Besides, I have told people not to go to any embassy because they are all, for the most part, blocked off.

  4. You need links to official websites for independent confirmation, if this information is incorrect you might be sending people to their deaths!!

    • Embassies do not publicly say that they are going to take injured people against the government of the host country. There is nothing on their sites. There may be on one or two, but those are only the most audacious of countries. And do not think that I don’t worry about sending people to there deaths. How do you think I felt when I learned that after a few hours all embassies were surrounded? How do you think it felt trying to tell people that while the embassies were safe to go to they are not anymore. How do you think it felt when people didn’t here the warning and I heard that they got arrested. Or about the group of 20 that the Swiss Embassy guard tried to take in, only to get repelled by the Iranian Army. I am doing my best to spread the most information I can, while trying to qualify it the best I can. Don’t you dare say I am not doing everything I can to save everyone I can.

  6. Everyone knows embassies have their own military guard. If your embassy gets fired on, waste them. Freedom can be helped brought by those who already have it.

    Azadi Eshgheman

    June 21, 2009 at 03:53

    • There are many reports that embassies have, although it is not ‘legal’ to say they do except in ‘extreme’ individual situations. Canada has sent 53 doctors to attend to the injured at their embassy and the Swiss have been ‘repelled’ saving some. Urban legend there are reports of it occurring, whether officially or not.

  17. Pahlavi elite Zionist agents provocateurs in Tehran decided to play with fire by attempting to overthrow democratically-elected Ahmadinejad who received his 62% win from an 80% voting turnout of poor/rural Iranians who greatly outnumber the rich. Students craving fewer social restrictions got hoodwinked by the Green Revolution and are paying big time for their participation in a foreign-led coup. Evidence of foreign interference in Iran’s election erase all Western claims of neutrality. Their interference is an act of war in and of itself. I suspect this is a desired outcome for NeoCons/NeoLibs. Mousavi is a unpredictable US/Israel puppet. In a rare act of kindness, Ahmadinejad released Roxana Saberi even though she spied for CIA/Mossad. Given these agencies’ poor execution of this operation, it is clear that they see their own agents & those students as expendable for their wargames & it is laughable that the deceitful organizers of this fake revolution are attempting to run for cover in foreign embassies. This ain’t a video game, reality TV or an episode of 24 or Spooks; this is REAL life & death unfolding in the streets of Tehran! I suspect the US govt is letting this get bloody while studying this “generated crisis” carefully so as to caution uppity Americans & to gain ideas for dealing with American resistance in the near future on US soil.

    • @Azadi Eshgheman: Are you actually Iranian or Israeli? Perhaps you are an elite Persian Jew trying to install another Jewish Shah to oppress the poor/rural Muslim majority with SAVAK so that you can maintain and increase the amount of your welfare checks signed in the blood of those students you deceived into aiding your diabolical coup.

      • And you who are you that you have all these extremely accurate information? i am of no religion, maybe nearest to zoroastrian with no relation with israel. and anyway if you agree with the IRI gov. that the leaders of the riots are responsible of the bloodshed I am very sorry for you… shooting in the crowd is not a solution against any riots. it is an unfair war.
        those are responsible for the bloodshed who ordered shooting. nobody else.

It is they who have blood on their hands! God’s justice and judgment will prevail.”— you are talking about Islamic Republic aren’t you? Actually, God’s justice IS prevailing now – in the millions of people in the streets of tehran. Vox populi vox dei.

    Tehran’s embassy was closed Sat during protests.

    Canadian embassy is NOT accepting Iranian wounded – Canadian wounded only.

    They also said other embassies in Tehran have NOT, repeat NOT offered assistance to injured Iranians.

    Can forward email as proof if requested.

  34. Polish embassy in Teheran stated that no-one has yet asked for help. The spokesman of Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that even though a few of EU’s embassies has confirmed their readiness for providing help for wounded Iranians, it is hard to say what the role of Polish embassy could be as the demonstrations took place in quite a distance from the embassy’s premises.
    From what I get, they are not saying no but they also not officialy confirming anything.
    Personally I believe they would have taken a wounded citizen if one had asked for help otherwise it would be against all values we’ve been fighting for in Poland 20yrs ago.

    • I agree. I will be starting a campaign in a few hours on Twitter and through other places to encourage people to go to embassies. I will also continue with the campaign to have countries issue official statements about accepting injured Iranians. I appreciate your help in contacting the Polish embassy. This is an international crisis as well as an Iranian one. Thank you for everything you are doing.

  35. Any agent or other supporter of the Ahmadinejad-Khamenei regime, that blocks injured Iranian freedom fighters from seeking refuge in a foreign embassy, should be killed, period. If you see any basij or police blocking a foreign embassy, then do not hesitate to unleash maximum brutal lethal hell upon them.
