Protesters are out in force today in Tehran, Iran, capitalizing on the unrest sweeping the Middle East after other demonstrations earlier this year forced regime changes in Tunisia and Egypt.


These citizen videos depict the building rage, with protesters chanting "Death to Khamenei" and "Mubarak, Ben Ali, now it's time for Seyed Ali´╗┐ [the Ayatollah Khamenei]." Others burned pictures of the Ayatollah in the middle of the streets.

Riot police have been dispatched to protect Tehran, but it looks as if Iran may be headed for protests similar to the ones that rocked the nation for weeks starting in June 2009.
