Protests in the Streets

This video clip comes from today in Tehran. More of the same, really - large crowds, short bands of riot squads on motorbikes, tear gas. Thankfully nobody is shot in this clip. I'm struck by the large numbers of people still in the streets, and despite the brutality by the fascists, they could be using far more lethal force against the crowds. Does this suggest they are holding back? Or does it suggest that this really is their worst? These are methods of crowd control, not quelling insurrections.

The next few days are going to be VERY interesting. I still think the momentum is on our side, but things could turn on the drop of a hat. This is an extremely tense and dangerous situation. Please continue to do everything you can to help.
