The Most Staggering Footage Yet

And I've seen a lot. Just watch this pitched battle in the streets between a crowd and the riot police (via BBC Farsi). And watch it to the very end, as the police suddenly turn tail and run.

Faced with so many with such determination, the will of the regime will crumble.
