Amateur Video Shows Gunman Open Fire on Iranian Protesters
The events of this latest outburst in Iran coincided with commemorations of the Shi'ite Ashura festival and the seventh day of mourning for leading dissident cleric Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, who died one week ago at the age of 87
This is alleged amateur video in Iran that shows a gunman (who is said to be a plainclothes security official) opening fire on demonstrators during recent protests against the Mahmoud Ahmadinejad' IRI (Islamic Republic of Iran) regime. The video is reportedly from a December 27, 2009 protest.
In spite of the severe suppression of the people by the security forces, Iranian protestors fought back, killed a number of security forces, injured a great number of security forces and burned or destroyed many motorcycles, jeeps and other vehicles belonging to the police, anti riot police and Basij Militia forces.
The state Press TV said eight people died in violence in Tehran and police said more than 300 people were arrested.
Those reported killed in the capital included a nephew of former opposition presidential candidate Mir Hossein Musavi.
All the while the MSM keeps silent! The Obama administration is determined to press on with efforts to engage the Iranian government," The New York Times cited senior officials as having said Saturday, "despite misgivings about irregularities in the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad."
Where will this revolution take this country? Will it lead to a country with more freedom for its citizens, especially its women? Who will rise up to fill the vacuum? How will that be decided? How long will the IRI allow this to go on? What can they do to crush this revolution? How many more will die? Have the powerful cries of the December 27 uprising has awakened United States & EU governments ?
