Iranians are standing up for democracy, against theocracy and dictatorship:
Tens of thousands of supporters of pro-reform leader Mir Hossein Mousavi are streaming through the center of Tehran in a boisterous protest against election results that declared President Mamoud Ahmadinejad the winner.
The crowd — many wearing the trademark green color of Mousavi’s campaign — was headed toward the capital’s huge Freedom Square in the largest display of opposition unity since Friday’s elections ended with Mousavi claiming widespread fraud.
That’s from a breaking news update from the Associated Press that also reports that Ayatollah Ali Khameni has ordered an investigation into allegations of election fraud (election results that Khameni previously called a “divine assessment”). It’s a stunning concession brought about by the widespread refusal of the Iranian populace to accept the results.
I’m wearing green today to support them. And I’m watching what happens in Iran.
