Still Marching


With authorities cracking down on opposition rallies and the foreign press, protests in Iran continue. So do live reports here. Today, over a half million people are said to be marching, mostly silent, in Tehran. "Stay in big groups," advises one tweet from the city.

Meanwhile, the Iranian soccer team emerged for their World Cup qualifying match against South Korea wearing pro-Mousavi green wristbands. In the second half of the game, they appear to have been forced to remove them. Iranian
fans at the match in Seoul unfurled a banner that
read "Go To Hell Dictator." They also chanted, "Compatriots, we will be with
you to the end with the same heart."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
