More Protests in Iran

I reckon the Mullahs thought they had placed a cap on these protests, and I guess I had kinda thought that too. That it was over.

Someone forgot to tell the people of Iran though?

Yahoo News:TEHRAN, Iran Security forces and militiamen clashed with thousands of protesters shouting "death to the dictator" outside Tehran University on Monday, beating them with batons and firing tear gas on a day of nationwide student demonstrations, witnesses said.

The protests were the largest in months, bringing tens of thousands out in marches at more than a dozen campuses around the country and in several squares in Tehran, as university students a bedrock of support for the pro-reform movement sought to energize the opposition. The opposition has been reeling under a fierce crackdown since turmoil erupted over the disputed presidential election in June.

Thousands of riot police, Revolutionary Guard forces and pro-government Basij militiamen flooded the area around Tehran University since the morning, vowing to prevent any unrest from spilling out into the streets.

Good for them.

Here's a couple videos of the protests.
