    Iranian Police Fire Tear Gas at Opposition Protesters

    BBC News - Iran police fire tear gas at opposition rally in Tehran
    In their first major show of dissent since December 2009, thousands of opposition supporters defied the government ban and gathered at Tehran's Azadi Square on Monday. They chanted "Death to dictators".

    Riot police and plain-clothes police backed by the Republican Guards used tear gas to disperse the protesters, he adds.

    Other witnesses said police also fired paintball guns at demonstrators.

    The fiercest clashes were reported on Azerbaijan Street, close to Azadi Square, and one witness said a number of ambulances had come and gone.

    Enduring America is live-blogging the Iranian protests:

    EA WorldView - Home - The Latest from Iran (14 February): It is 25*Bahman

    1840 GMT: RAHANA claims that security forces have beaten a number of students of Sharif University in Tehran.

    1835 GMT: Footage has been posted which claims to be of a night-time protest in Shiraz.

    1830 GMT: Mardomak reports that 10,000 security personnel are preventing people from spending the night in Azadi Square.

    1825 GMT: An EA correspondent brings up to date, "Electricity interrupted along Enghelab [Avenue], ostensibly to ease repression. BBC has also posted unconfirmed report of two people being wounded by gunfire."

    He warns, "All very ugly and leading to increased repression in next few days. Expect a new wave of arrests to begin tonight or tomorrow."

    We've long had an Iranian poster here. I'm pretty clear on what he thinks.

    Either big big numbers of people have to come out and STAY like the protests in Egypt of this will be a repeat of 2 years ago.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
