    a good background on today:

    Juan Cole wrote this about why today is different:

    A new and significant feature of this demonstration was that simultaneous rallies also occurred in cities all around the country. Although the crowds were relatively small, this national coordination suggests a national underground organization is emerging.

    Dear J-

    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.
