An Iranian tweets the latest protest:

The “green shopping” protest planned for today turned into violence with police interference

Plain cloths & special forces in Naser Khosro, Bouzar Jomehori & other streets leading to bazaar were beating ppl

People were chanting “Down with the dictator” & “This poor government is illegitimate”.

IRIB teams were filming the bazaar trying to create a video showing bazaar was calm.

This is the first time since #iranelection that protesters gather in Tehran’s bazaar
