Somewhere in the world a revolution is brewing. Tens of thousands of citizens are taking to the streets to have their voices heard and their votes counted. The authorities have tried to stop them by the use of beatings and murder, but the crowds are not diminishing. Instead, they are growing and soon, hopefully, the police and the military will realize that they are there to serve the people, not the despots that hold the reigns of power.
A revolution is brewing to topple the few privileged elite who keep their people oppressed in order to maintain their power. This revolution is happening as we speak, and in one of the most unlikely places: Iran.
No one knows where this is going to end, but if you go through this list of events that have transpired over the last few days since the fraudulent election results were announced, it will end either with the toppling of the despotic Iranian regime, or the vicious murder of thousands of Iranian protesters. If the latter occurs, it will be but yet another entry into the history books of the crimes committed by oppressive regimes. Nevertheless, the Iranian people need our support now more than ever. Freedom is freedom, regardless of where in the world the blood is spilled fighting to obtain it.
I hope to one day soon be able to post a picture of tens of thousands of Cubans taking to the streets in Havana to at last have their voices heard and their vote counted.
If it can happen in Iran, it can happen anywhere.
