Iran Is In The Midst Of A Revolution |..the government just cut off internet amidst calls for "armed resistance" on Day 3 of the #IranProtests. Holy shit did this escalate quickly.

Burning down an Ali Khamenei banner is very provocative. He is the highest political and religious leader in Iran & Shi‘a Islam. #IranianProtests #IranProtests

It seems the death of four protesters in #Lorestan earlier may have enflamed #IranProtests, particularly among younger #IranianProtests'ers.

⤴️Death of four protesters in #Lorestan
Summary article of how #IranProtests began. Although triggered by economic issues the protests have evolved into calling for the ouster of the President & Supreme Leader Khamenei.

⤴️Summary of #IranProtests
Hillary has come out in support of the protests in Iran. Ironically, when her support was really needed, back in 2009, the US State Dept undermined the Iranian Green Revolution.

Deputy Governor of #Lorestan claims police didn't shoot two protestors who died yesterday, blaming their deaths on foreign agents provocateur. Not impossible, but unlikely.
⤵️How many protesters have been killed?
⤴️Shootings blamed on foreigners
Multitudes of local reports of ppl being shot in #IranProtests, but no acknowledgment of the numbers. Authorities are attempting to hide the truth. It won't work.
⤵️Day 4, more teargas

⤴️Coverup of numbers killed
It's now ~10PM, Sunday, Dec 31st in Iran. Throughout this 4th day of the #IranProtests State Security attacked demonstrators. Here seen firing tear gas into crowds in #Doroud, also reports of shootings.

As night deepens, the #IranProtests are expanding. Now in #Nahavand, protests are focused on corrupted Shia clerics and authorities of Islamic regime of Iran.

⤴️#IranProtests expand to #Nahavand
There are scattered reports of State Security forces refusing to follow increasingly brutal orders of Iranian government. I wonder what the chances of a military coup are?

⤴️Some Security forces refusing orders
#IranProtests seem to have crystallized into a call for a return to secular statehood. I'll wager replacing "Iranian" for "Islamic" in the national slogan will sweep through Iran like a wildfire.

⤴️Chant: "Independence, freedom, Iranian republic."
As #IranProtests enter their 5th day & spread to more towns IRGC Forces have been attacking protestors. They've come up with a brilliant response. Take their pants & let them go.

⤴️IRGC Forces being "pants'ed" by protesters
"Akhunds/Mullahs must get lost", "Iranian Republic", burning Khamenei banners. W/addition of #Maragheh, it seems inevitable #IranProtests will lead to rejection of Islamic rule.
⤵️March on Khamenei residence
⤴️Chant: "Akhunds/Mullahs must get lost"
Burning down a building in #Takestan is the opposite direction of what will bring in the public to support #IranProtests. OCCUPY THE BUILDINGS, don't burn them!
Note: no followup on Khamenei residence found.

⤴️Burning #Takestan Islamic propaganda building
#IranProtests are at a crossroads. Their chance of holding onto any gains through their protest goes up dramatically if they avoid violence. OCCUPY THE BUILDINGS, don't burn them!

Regardless of the level of violence from ones oppressors, responding with nonviolence is possible & tactically superior to surrendering to pyrrhic victories. #IranProtests #DeturbanTheMullahs
