Videos embedded below. (from

This video is said to be the aftermath of a helicopter attack dropping some agent. I can not say with any certainty, but it does not seem to be anything more then tear gas. You can not hear a helicopter either. You can judge for yourself.

Here you can see the protesters marching and chanting; "According to this video, protests continue today in Tehran despite yesterday’s violence. At first you will hear the cries of “God is Great!” Followed by “Don’t be afraid! Don’t be afraid! We are all together!” And then “Death to the Dictator!”"(

Get some up close and personal shots of the Basij at The site is not in English, but the pictures tell the story.

You feel good video of the day can be found at (via You have to wait to the end to see the government forced making a hasty retreat as the protesters decided to make a run at them.

The Iranian foreign minister is still invited to next week's G8 meeting at the apparent request of Obama (;

"Despite the arrests, killings and beatings of protesters in Iran, Western leaders keep the invitation for the Iranian foreign minister Manouchehr Mottaki at the G8 meeting in Trieste (Italy) next week. The Obama administration apparently still hopes the Iranians will help in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and so the Italians followed orders and did not withdraw the invitation."

Obama's Approval Index (difference between people who strongly approve vs people who strongly disapprove) has hit negative numbers for the first time ( [via]).
