Iran Police Disperse Tens Of Thousands Of Tehran Protesters With Teargas As Rioting Spreads: Follow Events In Real Time

Posted on: February 15, 2011

Blink and you will miss the latest revolution. Algeria riots yesterday, Bahrain earlier today, and Iran now.

Per AP: “Clashes between Iranian police and tens of thousands of protesters wrecked central Tehran on Monday as security forces beat and fired tear gas at opposition supporters hoping to evoke Egypt’s recent popular uprising.

The opposition called for a demonstration Monday in solidarity with Egypt’s popular revolt that a few days earlier forced the president there to resign after nearly 30 years in office.

The rally is the first major show of strength for Iran’s cowed opposition in more than a year. Police used tear gas against the protesters in central Tehran’s Enghelab, or Revolution, square and in Imam Hossein square, as well as in other nearby main streets.

Demonstrators responded by setting garbage cans on fire to protect themselves from the stinging white clouds.” And a quick refresher in Geopolitics 101: Iran has lots of oil…and, supposedly, nukes (assuming Norton anti-virus has a Stuxnet patch).

Security forces on motorcycles could also be seen chasing protesters through the streets, according to eyewitnesses.

The semiofficial Fars news agency called protesters “hypocrites, monarchists, ruffians and seditionists,” and ridiculed them for not chanting any slogans about Egypt has they had originally promised.

Fars, which is linked to the Revolutionary Guard, Iran’s most powerful military force, said an unspecified number of protesters were arrested and handed over to police and security officials. It didn’t elaborate.

Opposition website kaleme.com reported that similar rallies took place in the central city of Isfahan and Shiraz in the south. Security forces used force to disperse them as well.

And with Al Jazeera not following the Iran events (yet), readers can track developments in Iran at the following blog: Dissected News. Some of the more recent updates:

17:51 GMT – 9:21 PM Tehran Time

Dissected News has just received an exclusive audio message from a source in Iran that has been reliable in the past. We have no way of verifying the following eyewitness account, reportedly recorded today. (English transcript of audio provided):

While breathless: I was in the street I went into an alley find an open door and jumped in.They shot a lot in the air and shot tear gas canisters but they also shot some by live ammunition I saw that myself.

All of sudden about 40 suppressive forces beat one person. An old man, 80 years old was badly beaten. I received about 10 to 12 baton strokes in my leg too so I could not run any more.

Many of our sisters and brothers were arrested. My eyes are still burning.

These next 3 quick updates come from Enduring America:

1719 GMT: Kurdish, civil rights activist Susan Mohammadkhani Ghiasvand has been arrested.

1715 GMT: Kalemeh reports that the residences of former President Mohammad Khatami and former Vice President Abdollah Nouri are “under siege”.

1705 GMT: BBC Persian is reporting clashes in Vanak Square in north Tehran.
