The latest from Tehran from Alireza Doostdar, in transcript form from Skype, 1:04 PM to 1:35 PM (GMT-3):
khamenei met with mousavi last night
and has asked him to pursue this with guardian council thru legal channels
well get this
mousavi asked for interior minister permit for a protest today
inqilab to azadi
then he said:
i’m gonna go anyway,
and people can join me
then the ministry refused a permit
mousavi says: “forget it protest is off”
“but since it’s too late…”
“we’re gonna go there to invite ppl to peace”
and he went and spoke to a crowd of (according to bbc) hundreds of thousands
and khatami and karbaschi and karrubi are there too
and it hasn’t turned violent yet. but we’ll have to see.
internet sucks ASS
cause they’ve slowed it down to a crawl.
meantime iroonis are launching denial of service attacks on right-wing and gov websites
guardians are meeting with the 3 candidates tomorrow.
