Anti-Government Demonstrations in Iran

[W]itnesses reported that demonstrators chanting anti-government slogans had taken complete control of Tehran's expansive Seventh of Tir Square. Video posted to YouTube showed thousands of others holding up green ribbons and rallying peacefully in Tehran, Esfahan and Shiraz. Late in the morning came reports of tear gas being fired into crowds in the capital, but they could not be confirmed.

The Iranian protesters just aren't going away. Neither are America's tea party protesters. Here's hoping their persistence pays off and that the regimes they are opposing will reconsider the feckless courses on which they have embarked.
