#1 Seems like the police have things under control. They have a highly effective police state.

I would think this post election protest will fizzle unless Mousavi pushes his supporters to more actively defy the police roadblocks, etc. than what we've seen today.

#2 I saw that Gateway Pundit has some photos.

He also conveys a rumor that Mousavi is ready to be a martyr, FWIW.

Still, anecdotal since the Iranian police state is pretty good at tamping down civil disobedience and blocking comms. So we are going on 2nd hand rumor while and so are the protestors.

Appreciate any links to 1st hand accounts.

#3 Ok. I've found a bunch of feeds. Seems like the typical internet echo chamber effect, but this might actually make it seem bigger than it is for the participants.
