Iran

Crackdown

Judging from the reports I’ve seen (most notably via the now-indispensable Andrew Sullivan), there’s seems to be a particularly brutal and vicious crackdown going on against Iranians who refuse to accept the phony landslide “reelection” of Ahmadinejad– especially at the universities. The authorities are doing their damnedest to keep the news from getting out, both in and out of Iran.

The most awesome and touching video I saw today was of police attacking a peaceful anti-regime demonstration– and then demonstrators coming to the aid of an injured police officer. If you need a reason to support their cause– there it is.
