Two videos capturing police brutality in Iran

These two videos have just been brought to our attention - uploaded earlier today, though they appear to have been taken on December 27 during the massive Ashura protests. Both depict police forces in Iran violently lashing out against crowds of protestors. In the first video, a large group of people marching in demonstration through the streets scatter as police open fire on the crowd. The camera loses its focus as people begin screaming in panic and run for safety.

The second shows a police vehicle trying to run over citizens who are attempting to get out the way. Toward the end of the clip, a body can clearly be seen lying on the ground after having been hit by the car.

Warning that both of these videos are very disturbing.

Thank you youtube for allowing people to get their voice heard across the globe. The Iranian government does not care about anything but keeping their power and the death toll is going up everyday.

Down with the Islamic Republic, and all dictatorships across the world, you have no place in this world!

This is what we are facing with every single day under that foresaken regime. Is a military attack justiofied now? YES IT IS.
They are planning to start executing on a massive scale. If it happens, we will only have to rely on the West's military might to free us from these animals. Another holocaust is on its way NOW in Iran. Help us and make the world a better place. Death to Khamenei, Death to the Islamic Republic, Death to these criminals.

To the proud & strong Iranian people: Through Internet and news outlets we have been watching in awe as you've shown us your courage and determination. Stand tall, don't give up now, you're close to the tipping point, which will liberate you from the dictator. We might be a thousand miles away but we are all with you in spirit, watching your revolution as it unfolds.

These videos are just a sample of thousands of brutality scenes happened in Iran yesterday.
Many people have recorded unique scenes with cellphones but they cannot upload to youtube.com
Authorities have made Internet so slow, they have also filtered most social networking sites including youtube.com
people need high speed internet with VPS facilities to bypass firewalls and access youtube.

A military attack is not justified as it can have unknown consequences and may rally sections of the population around the mulla's. Iranian people will be victorious without foreign military intervention. What the outside world could do to help the Iranian people is to bring more political, diplomatic, economic pressure on the regime, make it more and more isolated in the world. This can be done not by just issuing statements condemning the atrocities, which is of course most welcome, but by putting in force smart sanctions such as stopping purchasing oil, the main income source for the regime, putting a travel ban on government officials etc which could really bite them on international level. Merely issuing verbal condemnations will not deter them from shedding more blood as long as they can sell the oil feely in the world markets and buy new weapons and pay their mercenaries.

Obama scares the hell out of me ever since I read and watched the videos of an online game’s history section that asks a simple question of ‘Is it real or is it just a game’? You will be surprised. http://www.usofearth.com/2011-obamas-coup-fails.php
