On TV they tell people, number of protesters is just 2000 or 3000, and that they are some hooligans who want to make you suspicious about government!! So, today the leader ordered people for a rally against Mousavi’s supporters (he said against hooligans). Deliberately, the route of both rallies was the same. So, to avoidance of facing and fighting, protesters changed their route. Because of the reactions of developed countries to our situation, on TV they accused Mousavi implicity of being supported by Europe and America and of being treacherous!
Some professors resigned. Some eye witnesses told they pushed students from windows of top floors. 2 of them are in coma now. Basiji forces have used “acoustic grenade” and Winchester weapons. Even those savages have broken windows and trees,then they rolled students on broken pieces of glasses! Ahmadinejad support people in Ghaza, while his forces behave with their countrymen worse than Israeli forces. For the first time in history of Iran they Attacked girl’s dormitories, because It’s the first time that girls take part in a protest so massively.
I believe Ahmadinejad is taking revenge of his opponents one by one: Students, reformists and journalists (in addition to the first 100 people, last night lots of reformist journalists and professors arrested without any legal command on a single paper, it's like kidnapping!) and of course Mr.Rafsanjani!
Yesterday and today protesters have tried to have a silent rally without slogan, to show a beautiful, calm and civil protest to those savages.
In small cities most of people believe the election had been dishonestly, but daily life goes on. Some of them told me this is the usual way of governing in Iran. So, they accept it. They are used to dictatorship. Some other ones are radical supporters of government, they believe authorities orders are God words!
The supervisor committee of election had a meeting today. They said examination of correctness of election will take 10 days. That’s shamefull, after confirmation by leader!
