Austin Supports Iranian Democracy

Supporters of democracy in Iran gathered yesterday (Sunday, June 14) in Austin, at Sixth and Lamar (in front of Waterloo Records), to protest what is believed to be a de facto coup d’etat in Iran, where the establishment overthrew the will of the people.  I was there between 2:30 and 3:30.  It started before I got there, and continued after I left.  One of the common chants was “what we want.. ELECTION, .. what we got.. COUP D’ETAT“.  Most of the supporters assembled were of Iranian descent.  Many were students at the University of Texas.  It was a peaceful, family-friendly gathering of people that love Iran, and love democracy.  There was talk that there may be another gathering Wednesday at the Capitol.
