It is remarkable to watch the events unfolding in Iran, where the latest reports say militia gunmen have opened fire on protesters numbering up to two million and Iran's Guardian Council is said to be investigating the Mousavi claims of election fraud. Above all, photos of the massive crowds in the streets make real in a moving way the meaning of that over-used phrase, "the will of the people."


From protesters: “Mousavi we support you! We will die
but retrieve our votes!”

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
