other video from today
a good background on today:
Juan Cole wrote this about why today is different:

9 July is something of a historic day in the collective Iranian consciousness. There have been 4 revolutions in Iran in the last century, along with at least a dozen which failed. I don’t know exactly what the date means or what happened originally on it.
More info comes in almost hourly on twitter and facebook. Here’s a good synopsis.
