Iran Again

A blog called ‘Iran in the Gulf’ has provided translations of Khiaban (‘The Street’) newspaper, which is apparently circulating among oppositional elements. “Long live popular sovereignty! Long live resistance to the Coup D’état! Death to dictatorship!”

In the meantime, the dictatorship seems to be managing to bring death to the ‘resistance’:

“At 19:05 on June 20 on Karekar Avenue, at the corner crossing Khosravi and Salehi Streets, a young woman who was standing beside her father watching the protests was shot by a basij member hiding on the rooftop of a civilian house… I am a doctor, so I rushed to try to save her. But the impact of the gunshot was so fierce that… she died in less than 2 minutes. The protests were going on about 1 kilometer away in the main street and some of the protesting crowd were running from tear gas… towards Salehi Street.”

WARNING : CONTAINS GRAPHIC VIOLENCE
