Fresh open thread for the coming day here in the States. We’ve got several folks here on Motley Moose doing a spectacular job keeping track of events overseas. Being less twitter-savvy than some of you, I sometimes find it a struggle to keep up, and perhaps tend to rely on Nico a bit too much. But I wanted to say, I’m proud of The Moose, and I’m proud to know all of you. The passion I’ve seen here for the Iranian people is breathtaking in its own way.
Update: Don Lemon’s full segment with Melody Moezzi, below. Really, really worth a look.
From a rally Sunday:
TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iranian state radio said on Monday that no unrest broke out in Tehran overnight and the capital had been calm for the first time since a disputed June 12 presidential election.
“Tehran last night witnessed the first night of calm and peace since the election,” state radio said.
On Sunday evening, witnesses told Reuters shooting was heard in two northern districts of Tehran, which are strongholds of defeated presidential election candidate Mirhossein Mousavi.
State television earlier on Sunday said at least 10 people were killed during street clashes in downtown Tehran the previous day.
Now then… chitter chatter.
