Green scroll being displayed in Paris in front of the Eiffel Tower on 25 July is seriously f*&king long
Sunday, July 26, 2009
Quite the scroll this one. You can see it live here, and after it's over I'm sure it will be available on YouTube (and hopefully sped up). BBC Persian has also been showing parts of the footage already.
The procession started an hour and a half ago and I have no idea how long it's going to go on for, but apparently it's 2 kilometres long which is a LOT of people that have signed up to write that Ahmadinejad is not the president of Iran. Very, very impressive. It's very late here in Korea and there's no way I'm going to get to see it all before the night is over. A lot of people on Twitter are saying that after Iranians get the government they deserve they should send a part of this scroll to every city in the country.
Edit later on: okay, here are a few videos from yesterday. It turned out the scroll was just far too long to hang from the Eiffel Tower.
And yes, there were also protests within Iran as well yesterday. Here's a video of one near Mellat Park.
