Iranians have been defying a ban on protest and media to protest the 2009 Presidential election results which most claim were rigged. The results showed 64% of the vote when to Ahmadinejad, the far right populist incumbent, while only 33% went to Masouvi, the reformist. These protests seem poised to forever change how the Islamic Republic works. What even inside sources (of the regime in Iran) seem to suggest though, is that the results are fabricated, and that Mousavi received 19 million votes compared to Ahmadinejad’s 8 million. Iranians are protesting en masse this fabrication, and these street protests could very well turn into revolution.
