Iran Uprising Update ....July 8th...day 27...( please do continue to follow Nico Pitney's ongoing Updates at Huffingtonpost)
It has been harder and harder to get information but Huffington Post is still doing an amazing job of covering the situation...I will most likely do less updates, maybe a few a week..but with work and the Book..its getting harder for me to cover Iran as well as it deserves...I am still peeved at the MSM who spent TWELVE days "covering " Micheal Jackson's Death. I think it is sad that a Musician died, BUT I am confused WHY MJ needed 24 hours a day coverage. To the people in Iran , I am so embarrassed and horrified of the MSM shutdown...What will happen there ....Time will tell...
This report from The Guardian , as they continue to attempt to track Who was killed and detained, they have a story from within from a Doctor that tells what Medically really went on and that the death toll is much higher.
Keep the 25th Open as it is being planned as a UNITE for IRAN day...read more, and I will be posting updates...
This Video link shows a bigger video of the Students Song at the University and has the lyrics, every powerful. But also shows the determination of the young people to have a Future. This Video was made after some of the Bloodiest brutality. They are brave and resiliant. Watch the whole video and you will hear the women join in and see they too are participating even though they can not dance.
Amazing Video for Iran...
