Iran Human Rights, June 21: Despites the warnings by the Iranian regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei, thousands of pro-democracy Iranians went into the streets in Tehran and other Iranian cities today.
Demonstrators were met by thousands of security forces and paramilitary basidj militia.
According to sources in Iran more than 19 people were shot dead and several dozens wounded by the shots fired at the demonstrators.
Unofficial reports say that at least 150 people might have killed in todays Tehran demonstrations.
Some reports say that snipers shot people at the lower parts of the body and some of those wounded were taken away in basidj vans to undisclosed locations.
According to our reports, there have been protest demonstrations in other Iranian cities such as Shiraz and Isfahan.
Another disturbing report from "Human Rights Activists in Iran" said yesterday that the phone lines of Tehran’s Evin prison were cut off while many of those arrested last week were transferred to this prison.
Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, the spokesperson of Iran Human Rights asked the world community to show clear support for the pro-democracy movement in Iran and condemn the Iranian regimes use of violence against peaceful demonstrators.
He said: " World community must not recognize Ahmadinejad as the president and send clear warning against extensive use of violence against defenseless protestors who are demanding their legitimate rights"
I had not heard this news about Evin prison. I fear that the purges have begun. The West must intervene, even if they just help organize the leaders of the revolt and arm them. We've done it before for lesser causes, and evil men. If the West fails to help liberate Iran from the mullahs this blood is on their hands.
Just so we're clear: Marack won't interfere when lives are at stake, when innocent people are being gunned down in the street by their government. But Israel can't build homes on their land and can't keep her capital united.
Resign now you pathetic lying sack!
