Big demo planned for Tehran today in defiance of the supreme leader (isn't that Diana Ross?*) edict. I'm hoping this is revolution and not Tianenmen Square. Staying tuned to Twitter today, first place for news...

Tehran Bureau is back, re-routed.

More pictures on Tehran 24.

On Twitter, I rec. SadeqEn one of the few still with internet connection and giving disturbing updates as events unfold. Also iran09.

iran09 has a lot of (poor quality, looks like it's mostly coming off phones) vids on YouTube.
