Political Voice

Defending the Separation of Laws! Keep Fanatics Off OUR Constitution!

Revolution through People Power and Twitter!

I love this kind of democracy in action.  POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

It reminds me when people in California and across the state and the country protested Prop 8, but we had those prop 8 supporters calling us “Mobs.”  I just had to laugh because if that is a “mob” then they do not know what democracy is.  Demonstrations like this brink about change, and that change is brought about by the people, people power!

No one can stop that, but only a few created this kind of anger, and they all know who they are!

Power to the People!  We are NOT going away!

Revolution through People Power and Twitter!

Mock not. As the regime shut down other forms of communication, Twitter survived. With some remarkable results. Those rooftop chants that were becoming deafening in Tehran? A few hours ago, this concept of resistance was spread by a twitter message. Here’s the Twitter from a Moussavi supporter:

ALL internet & mobile networks are cut. We ask everyone in Tehran to go onto their rooftops and shout ALAHO AKBAR in protest #IranElection

That a new information technology could be improvised for this purpose so swiftly is a sign of the times. It reveals in Iran what the Obama campaign revealed in the United States. You cannot stop people any longer. You cannot control them any longer. They can bypass your established media; they can broadcast to one another; they can organize as never before.
