I think that while no embassy will really refuse injured people that come to their doorstep they may not ‘officially’ accept them. I would like it noted that this list has influenced the course of history. Embassies and Foreign Ministries all around the world have started responding to it and countries like Italy and Austria seem to have possibly even changed their stance.

Mousavi’s Supporters: Protest is Greater Than Anything Anyone Can Control; It is a Revolution

leave a comment »

State TV Reported that pr Mousavi demonstrators woud not demonstrate today, but they were wrong. With encouragemnet like “They can kill one person, they can kill ten people, they cannot kill a nation,” the Iranian people have surged forward with reports that a group of Basij encountered along the way were all killed.

There are reports that the top 5 military leaders in Iran met secretly and have decided not to shoot on potesters. Meanwhile Ahmadinejad is reportedly looking haggard in Russia, as though he hasn’t slept in days. This is all the more encourgaging to the people massed in defiance of him.

The propaganda campiagn has not ceased either. The government is now calling all pro-Mousavi protesters “spies of Israel” and saying they should be shot on site.

The death toll is catostrophic and promises to only increase in the coming hours.

There have been claims that Twitter is being used by Right-wing Israeli activists to fan the flames in Iran and delegitimize any election and government in the country.

Reports are that Arab newspapers have done a 360 turn and are now opposing Ahmadinejad. Seems they have gooten scared that Iran will be controlled by Mousavi supporters and are trying to get back in favor.

Rally Still Planned

leave a comment »

The rally was reportedly not cancelled, it was just advised against. Many Iranians are still planning to attend, though many other feel it is a trap and that much more blood will be spilt by the Basij and Ahmadinejad supporters. The rally is is to be help in 2 and a half hours, at 5PM local time.

Let us hope that it does not result in much, if any bloodshed.

The Seven Point Manifesto, as it is not being called, are the 7 demands of pro-Mousavi supporters. There have been hundreds of thousands of copies of this document have already been circulated around Iran. The Manifesto is below:

The Seven Point Manifesto calls for:

1.Stripping Ayatollah Khamanei  of his Supreme Leadership position because of his unfairness. Fairness is a requirement of a  Supreme Leader.

2. Stripping Ahmadinejad  of the presidency, due to his unlawful act of maintaining the position illegally.

3.Transferring temporary Supreme Leadership position to Ayatollah Hussein-Ali Montazery until the formation of a committee to reevaluate and adjust Iran’s constitution.

4. Recognizing Mir Hossein Mousavi as the rightfully elected president of the people.

5. Formation of a new government by President Mousavi and preparation for the implementation of new constitutional amendments.

6. Unconditional release of all political prisoners regardless of ideaology or party platform.

7. Dissolution of all organizations – both secret and public – designed for the oppression of the Iranian people, such as the Gasht Ershad (Iranian morality police).
