This is an eyewitness report from Tehran
On 1530 people started a demonstration in Motahari St. and chanted lots of slogans including: “Khamenei is a murderer, his leadership is invalid”, “while Ahmadinejad is in office there is protests every day” and they invited each other to chant Allah O Akbar.
Regime’s suppressive agents especially Bassiji motorcyclists and anti riot forces attacked people and more than hundred were wounded; covered with blood, and more than hundred others were arrested.
The crowd dispersed at 1730. Those agents who didn’t have batons used chains to hit people.
After the crowd were dispersed the inferior suppressive forces distributed sweets between themselves.
Around Tehran University the security atmosphere is even higher than a curfew and lots of students who wanted to join people in were actually under siege but some students succeeded to break the siege and join the crowd in the morning.
Those unable to leave the university hold their great protest inside the university until 2:30 chanting slogans.
Their simplest slogan was death to dictator. Khamenei is a murderer his leadership is invalid was heard times and again. Other slogans were: “we are women and men of fight, Fight and we will fight” and “our shame is our lout leader”.
An eyewitness in the center of Tehran said that the suppression today was far more then a curfew. Some suppressive acts of regime’s agents were:
Mobile antennas were blocked in the whole region. Café nets were closed in the whole region.
In Enghelab Sq. and in a large radial around it RCG and anti riot forces were stationed. Anti riot forces also surrounded Russia embassy and didn’t let anybody to get near it.
In Haft-e-Tir Sq. the number of suppressive forces was horrifying.
As soon as a gathering formed some where all of a sudden hundred motorcyclists (two Bassijies on a motorcycle) entered the scene to crush people.
At the so-called Shirodi Stadium (Amjadieh Stadium) about 2000 suppressive equipped agents with arms were stationed and were deployed to any location that they suppressive forces needed support.
Despite these facts people gathered throughout the city and chanted death to dictator.
I was an eyewitness to the arrest of 100 people in Haft-e-Tir Sq. This was only in the morning and I counted them.
Another eyewitness says: I was at Shariat Razavi Hospital at Mehrabad- Tehran. The ambulance entered the hospital and there was a rush. Two youths about 17 to 18 years old were in the ambulance. One of them was hit with bullet at his ankle and the other at his leg and they were bleeding. It was said that they were hit near Azadi Sq.
At 10 am RCG and Bassij forces filled the distance between Vali-e-Asr Sq., Palestine St. towards the east entrance of Tehran University. 16 Azar st. was completely under their control. Behind the east entrance students were chanting slogans but they didn’t let people to get near to the entrance. If anybody resisted he or she was arrested. Each time that they arrested somebody students booed them and shouted let him/her go.
At Haft-e-Tir Sq. people especially women resisted the suppressive agents. A 60 years old man stood in front of the Pasdars and said I will not move. This is our country; we are the majority you get lost.
A vicious agent in black clothes was severely beating a youth with baton that a girl stood in between to save him. I saw a lot of people clashing with Pasdars.
