Reports on the unrest in Tehran
There has been two articles that i've found in the western press that address the current undrest in Tehran:
Demonstrations Rock Tehran Universities
Iran Students Protest Over Increased Restrictions
Conflicting and false statements are present in both reports. General Talaie, the Islamic Republic's appointed brutal Tehran Police Chief has claimed in the AFP report that 40 police where injured during the demonstration, while his subordinate Police spokesman Mohammad Tourang (in the Reuters report) has said only 5 police officers where injured.
In the AFP report Gen. Talaie of the Islamic Republic says that no students were detained while again his subordinate Police Spokesman Mohammad Tourang (Reuters report) says that unspecified number of arrests have taken place.
This clearly attests to the state of confusion the Islamic Republic is finding itself when they cannot even coordinate between their own forces!!!
We all have to take everything the Islamic Republic says with a grain of salt and conclude that the number of police injured by the Iranian students is much higher and the same with the number of students that have been arrested!
We know that the Islamic Republic has NOT EXERCISED RESTRAINT as claimed in the report.
One slogan that was chanted by students were:
"Na sheikh mikhaeem na mollah, lanaat bar to ruhollah!" which translates into: "We don't want no sheikh nor no mollah, curses on you ruhollah"! "Ruhollah" is a reference to the leader of the Islamic takeover of Iran in 1979 - Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
"Ahmadinejad divooneh Iranro kardi virooneh!" roughly translates into: AhmadiNejad you crazy man you've destroyed Iran!
Other slogans were "Down With Dictatorship","Let go of nuclear energy and think of us" and "Khameini [The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic] has to be EXECUTED!".
More UPDATES will follow! As for now please do your best in raising awareness of the Iranian peoples' plight! They have risen and they need OUR support!
CALLS FOR A NATIONWIDE STRIKE HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED!
People of Iran are urged to increase their civil disobedience against the Islamic Republic across the country!
KRSI are giving direct reports on activities that are happening in Iran. People are urged to come out tonight to face the Islamic Republic!
Student Communiques are calling for the SUPPORT of Iranians across Iran. In Tehran there will be demonstrations tonight at Tehran University. Students are urging all sectors of society to JOIN THEM UNTIL VICTORY!
PLEASE listen to our students! Join them! Even if you don't go to the designated demonstrations don't stay in your homes! Go out of your homes! Be in your cars and honk your horns in support of the students. GET OUT OF YOUR HOMES! The more places we have demonstrations and slogans against the Islamic Republic the less chance there is of the Islamic Republic suppressing us because it will be occuring at too many places for them to send their thugs!
IN AWAITANCE OF THE IRANIAN LION AND SUN FLAG BEING RAISED ATOP EVERY ROOFTOP IN IRAN!
Sporadic clashes continue in several Iranian universities
