Mourning for Reform


This was the scene at yesterdays demonstration in Tehran. Demonstrators wore green to represent the colour of reform and black to mourn the seven demonstrators killed on Monday at the hands of the murderous Basij. It was dignified non violent protest. I gather it was bigger than Wednesdays but not as large as Mondays. The next big Demo is set for Saturday. I am curious to see how the demonstrators react to Khameini's outburst today at Friday prayers where he rejected claims of fraud in the election, blamed everything on the west and blamed the protesters for the blood spilt.
