Anniversary of the Iranian uprising

Tomorrow is the first anniversary of the popular uprising following rigged presidential elections in Iran.

What's happening now? Other than systematic brutal repression of democratic will, not much. Khamenei and Ahmadidn't-win have successfully thwarted their opposition. Now they can focus on important things, like marching Iran in the direction of war.

Atlantans observed the anniversary today with a screening at the Carter Center of "For Neda" — a documentary about Neda Agha-Soltan, whose murder during last year's street protests was recorded on camera phones.

The documentary airs Monday on HBO and on YouTube right now.
