Sunday videos from Tehran plus some information

Sunday was supposed to be a day off for the demonstrators, but, as the man said, I guess that depends on what your definition of “day off” is. The following videos for Sunday were passed to me by Ardeshir Arian. The second shows quite a crowd. In the third, people are taking refuge in a retail store to avoid arrest.

Ardeshir also informs me that the influential House Speaker Ali Larijani is switching sides in the ever Byzantine relations between the mulllahs and now may be favoring his old enemy Rafsanjani. That would be good news for Mousavi and the demonstrators, but who knows?

Coming up – a general strike on Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are days of mourning.
