@Ghonim: Breaking the psychological barrier of fear is the tipping point of any revolution in any police driven regime led by a dictator
This is happening now in parts of Iran. It’s happening at great cost to those in the dark spook-ridden streets where they are herded from the street to the sidewalk.
The Basiji use a tactic called “kettling” to drive their prey into a formation that’s easier to attack with batons, knives, guns and other weapons.
I will be tweeting ( sporadically ) info and RTing in english, and also some messages in Farsi even though I can’t guarantee they’re focussed on peace and the protection of protestors.
Among those I’ll RT is @PahlaviReza Yes, of the Peacock Throne. With apologies to those who suffered under that regime it seems from my sources that his information is good and he’s certainly no friend of Ahmedinijad and Cronies.
Tehran orders probe of ‘suspicious’ Neda death
Monday, June 29, 2009
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for a judicial probe into the “suspicious” death of a young Iranian woman who has become an icon of opposition protests against his re-election.
Mr Ahmadinejad sent a letter to judiciary chief Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi-Shahroudi requesting a serious investigation to help identify “the elements” behind this month’s killing of Neda Agha-Soltan.
The president accused foreign media of using the case for propaganda purposes.
He also suggested that the opposition and Iran‘s enemies abroad aimed to misuse it “for their own political aims and also to distort the pure and clean image of the Islamic Republic in the world”.
