There have been a number of protests lately in Iran.
RegimeChangeIran.com and the Washington Post have reports of the outbreaks of violence in Iran after Iran won a World Cup soccer match against Bahrain that guaranteed them a spot at the upcoming 2006 World Cup.
It looks as though the win was yet another excuse used by protesters to gather and launch anti-government protests. Only this time, a group of female protesters have made headlines by demonstrating loudly outside “Freedom” Stadium in Tehran.
The women were protesting against their lack of rights and freedoms.. they were supported by “tens” of males as well. Unfortuantely, they were confronted by Iranian militiamen and many were arrested and/or injured in the scuffle.
This is all happnening before the Presidential elections next Friday, the 17th of June.
We can only hope that these escalations stay relatively peaceful and that they cause a true revolution soon in Iran.
I’ve added Podcasting to the website… you can see the RSS link for the Podcast on the right hand side. I will also try to post a link to each audio file directly in each post that has one.
