"Where Is Your 63 Percent?"

Tehran Bureau is live-blogging:

Some of the slogans chanted were:

Palestine, we are just like you
Oh [Imam] Hossein, Mir Hossen [Mousavi]
Karroubi, Mousavi, we support you
Death to Russia
Torture, rape, have no longer any effect
Not Gaza, not Lebanon, I’ll die for Iran

Leave Palestine alone
Long love [Dr. Saeed] Hajjarian [the jailed reformist strategist], long
live Mousavi
Long live [Grand Ayatoollah Hossein Ali] Montazeri, Long live Karroubi
The real Basiji, Hemmat and Bakeri [two commanders killed in Iran-Iraq
war, whose families support the Green Movement]
Long live Montazeri, long live [Grand Ayatollah Yousef] Sanei

And to Ahmadinejad:

Shut up liar
Get lost liar
Where is your 63% [of the vote], liar

Rumors continue to persist that the arrests of Mousavi and Karroubi are imminent. Several relatives, children, and grandchildren of the jailed reformist leaders have also been arrested, in order to pressure the leaders to “confess.” In one case, one of the reformist leaders has been told that, “we have found so much evidence against your son that his punishment is death,” in order to get him to “confess.”
