Not just any protest, but a big, major protest. Will they be greeted by tanks?
Mousavi circumvented regime efforts to block Internet access by announcing the rallies on his Facebook page in Farsi and in English Friday. “CRUCIAL Demonstration on Saturday 16:00 in Tehran and all around the world, please spread this message around.”
Messages urging the public to converge Saturday for the march through the capital also flooded Twitter, and after dark on Friday, Tehranis took to the rooftops to cry “God is great” and “Death to the dictator” in what Iranian bloggers said were numbers exceeding previous nights.
More than ever, the internet is the prime organizing and news tool.
