Timeline and History of Protests in Iran
If anyone is still looking to make a 'why you should be paying attention' post to try and really show what's going on there - on the ground, and happening to real people - copinggoggles has made a few chronological caps of some of NextRevolution's tweets, with names redacted.

I'm really sick of the debate on whether Mousavi is any different from Ahmadinejad, and I'm kind of peeved at Obama for bringing it up, because now cable news is all over this meme.
It's not about Mousavi. It's about the people's right to have their vote counted. And as the protests went on, it's about the brutality against those who dare speak out and stifling of voices.
