NOTE FROM STEVE CLEMONS:
PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE RECEIVED INFORMATION DIRECTLY FROM THE BRITISH EMBASSY THAT THEY HAVE NOT TAKEN IN INJURED PROTESTERS. THERE IS SOME LEVEL OF MISINFORMATION FLOODING THROUGH TWITTER WITH REGARD TO THE EMBASSIES. I DO NOT HAVE INFORMATION ON ANY EMBASSIES EXCEPT THE UK — AND KNOW WHAT I PREVIOUSLY WROTE BELOW IS WRONG.
THERE MAY BE ACCIDENTAL REPORTING OUT THERE — OR MISLEADING “TWITTER FRAUD”.
The violence is worsening. There are horrific images of people dying in real time on YouTube video clips. In one, a sniper kills a young woman. I can’t watch them anymore and won’t post them here.
The Basij are monitoring the hospitals for injured. So many are encouraging wounded protesters to seek out support and help at foreign embassies.
Here is a map of those embassies in Tehran that are reportedly providing shelter and assistance. (though this information has not been confirmed and has already been shown to be at least partly in error)
The Embassies that have been reported via twitter to be standing up thus far and doing the right thing are Australia, Finland, Germany,
the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Norway, Belgium, Mexico, Portugal, France, Switzerland (which represents the US). Canada is reportedly trying to find doctors to be helpful before opening doors to those who need help.
