Friday Day 21 of the Uprising that resulted due to Election Fraud in Iran......3 weeks later.
What happens now ? Thousands are imprisoned are missing now due to the Brutal Crackdown. Millions took to the streets peacefully, and yet the system remains ironfistedly in control with a troubled corrupt leadership ensconced as they have legitmized a fraudelent election, empowering a leader that was so weak he came in third by actual numbers.And sadly due to media censorship,there is very little news coming out. And with 34 fine journalists imprisoned, it will be hard to get Real News or photos. The People continue to attempt to get information out via phones, risking lives to do so. Sadly the Media here has been pathologically focused on the death of a musician for over a week.....and the fate of the Brave Country of Iran is now a below the fold story. There are many around the world who are still trying to keep the focus on the fate of these people.
Mousavi...what next ? Is what most people are asking, and this Guardian article is probing that issue.
