Demonstrations erupt across Tehran, SSF opens fire on crowd

Demonstrations simultaneously erupted in the Iranian capital this afternoon, with protestors denouncing what they termed a “sham election” and urging fellow Iranians to boycott the polls.

A large demonstration started in Golha (Flowers) Square, near Shokoufeh Square, in southeast Tehran, and a separate protest began in Vali-e Asr Square on the intersection of Palestine Street at 3:00 p.m., lasting for some two hours.

Protestors chanted “long live freedom”, “the cry of every Iranian is freedom”, “we reject dictatorship”, “boycott the elections”, and “the regime will be overthrown”.

You can take the boy out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the boy. My people in Iran got what they deserve, another 100 years of misery. The same starving assholes who deny owerthrowing the last regime are voting for Ahmadinehjad and Rafsanjani now. If there is a God, you will all have to end up eating bricks. I hope you all starve!
