New music for a revolution?

There is an element within the opposition to the current regime that has nothing to do with Mousavi, (or in fact, any of the present leadership), who want a secular, democratic and free Iran.

Tweets from the front: ‘Iran is on fire’

The revolution may not be televised, but it will be Twittered.

Right now, people in Iran are fighting and dying for their freedom:

IRAN is on fire! ppl are fighting in ALL CITIES for their VOTE and against the DICTATORSHIP! #iranelection,RT pls

It is near morning there now, and the regime appears to have spent last night, among other things, attacking university dorms in Tehran and elsewhere:

Mousavi has called for a demonstration tomorrow @ 4:00 pm (7:30 am EST) followed by a general strike on Tuesday.  The regime says the demonstration is illegal and there are reports of Revolutionary Guard tanks moving into the capital.  No one doubts what is at stake:

4pm all across IRAN RT @persiankiwi tomorrow we march. Will biggest in world history. 10 mill march tomorrow.

@flashpolitique we are moving either toward a north korean style dictatorship or a more open and democratic society
