Transcript:

It is now beyond doubt that the presidential elections were faked.

Despite bans, mass demonstrations still continue every day. In Tehran alone, up to 2 million protesters were seen. They are demanding the removal of the current government and its oppressive branches.

The Iranian regime continues to crack down against protesters. Basij militia have shot protesters dead in the street.
Hundreds are arrested every day. Rumors of torture persist. Tehran University has been raided. Students have been rounded up.

There are many signs this is a coup, trying to radicalise Iran. Foreign Hizbullah soldiers have been spotted posing as riot police. Iranian TV is actively spreading fake news. Violence is incited by plain-clothes agents. Footage is miscaptioned to elicit government support. All other media is suppressed.

However the free exchange of information continues online. Protesters communicate and organize using phones, Twitter and email. Hackers inside and outside Iran have set up underground channels. An evidence gathering network has been set up to identify militia members. Citizen journalists keep moving around to avoid detection and arrest.

In the Information Age, it is no longer possible to keep tyranny secret. The Iranian population, 2/3rds under the age of 30, knows this very well.

They have rallied their support behind opposition candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi. He in his turn has embraced the powerful voice of the people and their resourcefulness. They march on.

At the very least, the Iranians deserve your compassion and your support. But you can do more. Spread the word about what is really going on. Talk to friends and family.

Whatever happens next, the Middle East will be irreversibly changed.
