Iran

Since the regime is now trying to let as little information as possible slip out side the country I think it's more important than ever that we collect what we have and dont let the public focus shift away from the demonstrations. The more people are watching the better.
So I thought I'd spread some useful links:

Here is arian1 's LJ that has some great coverage of the events

Andjwaneeta  has a brilliant collection of facts about the major players in this here

Here is the daily dish again.

and a forum about what's going down there and also how you can help with proxies, etc.

Here you can find some very impressive pictures
 

For some offline education on Iran I recommend:
 
My Iran by Shirin Ebadi (about the 1979 revolution and current situation)
We are Iran by Nasreen Alavi (about the iranian bloggers)
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (brilliant comicbook and film)

If you have some more other links that you want spread, please post them here.
