Large Crowds in Tehran on Wednesday
It has become very difficult to get photos and video out of Iran in recent days. Fortunately, we see some video clips on Youtube. This footage of a large crowd on the street was filmed by someone with their cell phone. Even this simple act of pulling out your phone is now a threat to the government. You are risking your life by daring to document reality for the world to see. And anyone spotted with a camera or cell phone is immediately targeted for arrest, beatings, torture, death.
"Hammer of justice crushes you," indeed.
