Iran Protests Persist

Despite violent repression by the regime, Iranians continue to protest in large numbers following the suspicious outcome of recent elections. Despite attempts by the government to stifle independent and foreign media, videos and images are getting out.

Here's a suggestion from a friend on Facebook on how Twitter subscribers here can help brave Iranians who are trying to get information out:

If anyone is on twitter, set your location to Tehran and your time zone to GMT +3.30. Security forces are hunting for bloggers using location/timezone searches. The more people at this location, the more of a logjam it creates for forces trying to shut Iranians' access to the internet down. Cut & paste & please pass it on.
