Here's the Twitter-feed from the campaign manager of another reformist candidate, Mehdi Karroubi:

“Karoubi’s camp believes that if there is no resistance this time, people’s help can never be expected again.” “Making any decision is very difficult and we are in a very difficult situation, any protest must very carefully calculated.” “Karbaschi asks people to follow the news through satellite, facebook and internet and ignore rumors.” “Karoubi will never be silent. He is present in the scene and never left it. Solutions are being considered.”

The protests seem confined to parts of Tehran so far.
