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 - [profile] copinggoggles has made a few chronological caps of some of NextRevolution's tweets, with names redacted.

Another noteworthy stream of tweets from today:

# far as eye can see people in every corner people everywhere...revolution is close to end...ghandi would be proud #*****

# i can not count the numbers to big #*****

# when all these troubles behind us i will get my camera back and go to the park with my daughter

# i will bring my brother and girl friend and we will say mullahs are so old their ideas are not modern and we will laugh and be free

# homosexuals will not die woman will not be stone to death we will be friends with world

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.
