Iran’s freedom valentine

It looks like Iran is emboldened by the events in Tunisia and Egypt. A live blog has been set up . The first entry of the 25 Bahman live blog starts off with an unconfirmed list of demonstration sites and times in 24 cities.

Given the nature of the demonstrations and their planning, it is impossible to verify much of this information in advance of actual events:

* Tehran: 3 PM (From Imam Hossein to Azadi Square)
* Babol: 4 PM (In front of Babol Technical University; Near Amir Kabir Square)
* Shiraz: 3 PM (From Namazi Square to the Engineering Building #2; Mullah Sadra Avenue)
* Isfahan: 3 PM (Enghelab Avenue)
* Ahvaz: 6 PM (Naderi Avenue)
* Mashhad: 5 PM (Rahnomayee Threeway)
?* Rasht: 3 PM (Motahhari Avenue)
* Ardabil: 4 PM (From Sahriati Square to the Bazaar)
* Bushahr: 5 PM (From Layan Avenue to 6th of Bahman Square)
* Kerman 3 PM (Around Taryafard)
* Orumieh: 4 PM (Atayee Avenue)
* Tabriz: 5 PM (Saa’at Square)
* Hamedan: 4 PM (Bo-Ali’s Tomb)
* Tonekabon: 5 PM (From Karimabad Square to Imam Square)
* Kermanshah: 3 PM (From 22nd of Bahman Threeway / Nowbahar Avenue to Azadi Square)
* Sanandaj: 5 PM (6th of Bahman Avenue)
* Semnan: 5 PM (From Sa’adi Square to Kowsar Square)
* Khurramabad: 5 PM (Khurramrud Avenue)
* Shahre Kord: 5 PM (Enghelab Square)
* Kashan: 5 PM (15 of Khordad Square)
* Ghazvin: 5 PM (Khayyam Avenue / Adl Square)
* Sari: 5 PM (Enghelab Avenue)
* Gorgan: 5 PM (Palace Traffic Circle)
* Arak: 5 PM (Valiasr Square)

Scale of today’s protests have caught security forces off guard. Tear gas has been used excessively around Enghelab Square, Tehran. Tehran sky is filled with military helicopters, fighting in streets, chanting continues as they shout out that Mubarak and Khamenei face the same destiny. Sounds of “Allah-o akbar!” and “Ya Hossein! Mir Hossein!” are deafening.
