Iranians respond to global solidarity

If you doubt the importance of the global solidarity demonstrations to people in Iran , consider this report from Tehran Saturday:

Iranian police and pro-government militia attacked and scattered hundreds of protesters in a rare demonstration in Iran’s capital Saturday, witnesses said.

The protests were in response to the demonstrations being held around the world calling for the Iranian government to release opposition activists, one of the witnesses told The Associated Press.
…..
As night fell, Iranians across the city gathered on their rooftops and chanted “death to the dictator” and “courageous neighbors, thank you for your support,” apparently in response to the protests around the world.

Check out the United for Iran website for reports, photos and videos from other demonstrations around the world. Does anyone have a firsthand account?
