Protests in Iran

Protests have been going on for several days in Iran. The Iranian people are protesting what they feel is a rigged election, a sign of rampant corruption in the government.

Tens of thousands of people are marching in the streets. There has been some rioting, but mostly it looks non-violent. There has also been riot police beating and shooting people, some Iranians have died as a result.

It is important to note that these people speaking out against Islamic Extremism. They want less radical policies, less radical government. These people are moderate Muslim, who represent the largest part of the entire Muslim community.

It is awesome to see, this is what democracy looks like.

The Iranian government is likely to escalate their military presence if the protests continue. They have already begun to censor the Internet, blocking access to sites like YouTube and Twitter.

These people are our people. They represent the human race, and the human race is in a power struggle against the system.

We need to stand up with the Iranians, to tell them that we support them. Not just to stand in solidarity with our Iranian kin, but to show our governments that we won’t stand for that bullshit here, either.
