leave a comment »

There are unconfirmed reports that in areas of Tehran police began firing on Basij militia. Currently these claims cannot be confirmed.

There are also reports that women have become the main target of the Basij. Women have taken a large part in the protests following the June 12th election, which opposition figures and protesters are calling illegitimate.

There are also reports of increased violence around Enghelab Square, as well as many other places.

Prisoners Beat, Tortured, and Raped in Iran – At Least 11 Killed Tuesday

leave a comment »

There are reports from Iran that people  in Iranian prisons, such as the notorious Evin prison, were beat, tortured, and even raped. Medical examinations of people released have proven all three of these claims. This report comes as the government cracks down on dissidents throughout all of Iran.

The Guardian article on this is here: http://bit.ly/15pnac

There are also reports that at least 11 people were killed Tuesday 30 June 2009.

It may well be that in the future the officials of the current regime will be tried at the hague for crimes against humanity.

with 10 comments

This is a link  to a map that provides the location of every embassy in Tehran:http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=116894734857323306892.00046ccb858387ddf2a3d

This is a link to a text file of the embassies and whether or not they take injured: http://bit.ly/2rYIbt

The map and text file are  color coded. Below is the description:

Best info we have – please update if you know more. GREEN: OPEN (embassy statement open)

YELLOW: no statement, indication yes RED: NO HELP (embassy can’t help injured)

BLUE: UNKNOWN

Assume Basij are blocking all embassies and use CAUTION. Also many Embassies deny that they are helping injured or even are able to do so. Hard to get straight facts. Furthermore most embassies won’t have sophisticated medical equipment on site. In case of life threathening injury please go to the nearest hospital. In addition latest info suggests embassy staffs are being expelled from country soon. check too with https://eldercato.wordpress.com/2009/06/20/list-and-status-of-injured-accepting-embassies-in-tehran/ Please help in further enhancing this map by checking the information and by providing additional information (other Embassies, capacity of Embassies …)

Again the link is:http://bit.ly/AXKb0

Please pass this on. Spread it on your blog or website. Claim it as your own, we really don’t care. It just needs to be out there. Tweet this until you can’t Tweet anymore. JUST GET IT OUT THERE!

Mousavi Under House Arrest

leave a comment »

There are reports that Mousavi is under house arrest, though some sources don’t use the phrase ‘house arrest’, but rather say he is ‘under 24 hour guard.’ Either way he is cut off from all his supporters. The government likely thinks that this will result in the protesters becoming less organized and that they will lose heart without their ‘leader.’
