It Has A Name: The Green Revolution

So the revolution has a name now: The Green Revolution. The GreatMoose offers his solidarity to these folks. Wish there was more I could do.

If you'd like to help try this: , and then put in the target site you'd like to help overload. Here's some suggestions: (Ahmedinejad's site)

Set that to reboot that page as much as possible and help bring down the gov't servers. If you'd like to set up a proxy server for iranian citizens to use, go here:


There's some SERIOUSLY disturbing tweets out there, one of them from Change_for_Iran:

"it's worth taking the risk, we're going. I won't be able to update until I'm back. again thanks for your kind support and wish us luck"

And no one has heard from him since. That was several hours ago. Persianwiki is still around, talking about how plainclothes Basij (milita members, brownshirts, if you will) are massing near a basij station, waiting for something...

The tweets from this morning and the Tehran University attack were extremely unnerving. people crying out for help on twitter as they are being attacked... and follow along.

UPDATED EARLIER POST. Also, I've changed the color scheme to Iranian green as a show of support.
