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:
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.
I am monitoring the tweets now with hashtags #25Bahman

I am an advocate. I am NOT neutral. I will NOT give social media mileage to members of political clans, epal, a previous candidate for the same position and those I believe are a waste of taxpayers' money.
I do not support or belong to any political party. I was part of accredited media covering the Office of the Vice President and Leni Robredo as she ran as a presidential aspirant in the 2022 National and local elections.
On August 5, 2021, YouTube announced that I was selected as one of 50 Program participants of its Creator Program for Independent Journalists
