The list expanded to 30. And the official sources still recognise only about 20 people. Unofficial sources are talking about cca. 156 dead, and many others may have already died these days in prisons of their injuries left without first aid or any medical treatment, worsened by horrible hygienic conditions and further torture and mistreatment.

  1. thanks brother/sister.
    i will add more names and pictures.

  2. I a pharmacist. I live in UK. Before I am labled and before I am told I recieve money from Ahmadinejad I would like to say that in no parts of the world the result of an election can be allowed to be changed in the streets. This by no means implies that I condon killing of innocent people. All I am trying to say is that there are always peaceful ways of doing things. Please do not lable me. Thanks

  3. Reza go fuck yourself

  4. Dear friends, please stop being vulgar here, just because of respect to these dead... who died also for freedom of speech, for all even for those with whom we do not agree. I published Reza's comment just I did not have the time to respond to him. I am not going to flag or ban him, but ask a couple of questions.
    Dear Reza, of course the results of a FAIR and UNDOUBTED election should not be changed by the street, but, please think about this: there are so many people who doubt about the fairness of the elections - no international impartial observers, no press... errors in counting that even Khamenei admitted... of course, I know there are many people who voted for Ahmadi Nejad, but I do not believe in that percentage, maybe maybe if it was 50 and 40. But please, after all these 30 years, how can you be so sure of that person and of a government who lied to the people sooo many times? Why so many people protest and are ready to die in the streets or in prizons? Why are they so desperate? Because they are not happy with the government and with A.N., he had 4 years to show what kind of person he is and it is enough. The people do not want him again and they do not want any more lies. It is simple. IRI is a big failure, lie and crime which caused the death of thousands of innocent people and destroyed the lives of even more of them.. it is not the divine islamic paradise, it is a hell from which so many people want to escape. Even those who did not have any problem with the regime, even those are victims, because they are forced to live in a lie and they are brainwashed. Finally, let me ask you personally, why are you living in the UK? Why are you not living in the IRI if you agree with its government? Please try to think a little bit by yourself and try to understand what do the people really want.
