A lot of women have gathered around the front gate of the Tehran University and they've taken off their scarves in the demonstration.
They've been severely beaten by chains, you know the old chains and locks they use here for motorcycles? Do you know how thick they are? I broke down in tears when I heard this.
When the time is right we will all join. I can smell it in the air. This time is different.
I despise Islam and the mullahs even though I am officially a Muslim now. I don't have the right to change my religion in Iran.
I despise the regime and so do 90% of the Iranians. All the people who elected Khatami despise the regime and they thought he'd bring change.
