Photos of the Dorm Rooms in Tehran
This site offers a number of photos from the damage to the university dorms in Tehran. The police attacked on Saturday and Sunday, leading to extensive damage, mass arrests, beatings and killings. There are more on the page, so go visit there, and steal whatever you can and share them online. Work fast, kids. Hustle, hustle.
I'm going to bed now. I've got work at 8am, which means that Massouvi's protests will have happened before I can get to a computer again. My advice to everyone involved is to stay focused, stay calm, and know that this is only the latest chapter in a very long struggle for freedom and equality. Remember Dr. King. Remember Gandhi. Remember South Africa and East Berlin and Moscow. And remember Tiannamen Square.
Most of all, remember the wisdom of Bob Marley: "He who fights and runs away lives to fight another day." Stay alive. There will always be another day to fight. But never doubt for a second your cause. Equality and freedom is written into the fabric of this universe. In the end, novelty wins.
