Iranian Protesters Take To Streets Of Tehran, Other Cities
Tens of thousands of people wearing green accessories -- the sign of the opposition -- have come out on to the streets of Tehran and other major cities for the first mass protests against the Iranian government in two months.
Clashes were reported between the opposition protestors and supporters of President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, backed by police and Basij militia vigilantes. It is not yet known how many protesters were arrested.
The protesters took advantage of the officially sanctioned observance of Quds (Jerusalem) Day -- on which Ahmadinejad denounced the Holocaust as a "myth"-- to assemble without immediately being spotted and stopped by the police.
Shouting slogans, the protestors denounced Ahmadinejad as stealing the June presidential election: "Liar, liar, where is your 63 percent?"
They also demanded the release of thousands of people arrested in government crackdowns on previous rallies against Iran's contested presidential election results.
Demonstrations also took place in other major Iranian cities including Isfahan, Mashhad, Qom, Shiraz, and Tabriz.
"People are now heading to Karimkhan Square. I can tell you that from Vali Asr Square to Karimkhan Zand Square all is covered in green," she added. "The conservatives are much fewer than the reformists."
Iran eyewitness: protest videos
Hundreds of thousands of Iranians poured into the streets for Jerusalem Day, which is supposed to show solidarity with Palestine but appears to have been used by opposition supporters as an excuse to march against the government.

It really takes a lot of courage to do what they are doing in the type of regime they live under.
I am proud of them.
Hopefully the government will collapse under it's own weight soon. Something's gotta give over there.
