General Strike Today and More Protests

Today was the day of the general strike across Iran. There are mass demonstrations in the streets again, numbering over 100,000 (although I would expect the actual numbers to be far greater, given the turnouts of these past few days).

Here is an excellent dispatch from The Washington Note. As always, essential reading. An unidentified Tehran student describes the events of the rallies in Tehran, and the mood of the city.
