Via Gateway Pundit and Revolutionary Road, who is covering the protests live, we see the violence against protesters has stepped up a notch.

The Lede has more concerning updates, including but not limited to:

Update | 8:12 a.m. Iran’s Press TV reports that police officers in Tehran have raided a campaign office for the opposition leader Mir Hussein Moussavi, and declared that it was the “headquarters for a psychological war against the country’s security.” According to the satellite broadcaster financed by Iran’s government:

The Intelligence and Security Department of the Tehran Police has declared that the building — located on Tehran’s Haft-e-Tir Square — was investigated on Monday night after a search warrant was obtained, IRNA reported. The plotters have been arrested and are currently under investigation.

Documents found in the building indicate an ongoing plot against Iran’s security was being implemented, the police said in a statement.

“After scrutinizing the building, which was the campaign office of a presidential candidate, it was discovered that the organization of illegal gatherings, the promotion of unrest, and efforts to undermine the country’s security were carried out from the building,” the statement added.

Evidence has been found in the building that reveals the role of foreign elements in planning post-election unrest.

What can we do other than offer our moral support?

Some thing boycotting companies that sell to Iran, via Wired:

Consumers are calling for a boycott of telecom equipment makers Nokia and Siemens after the Wall Street Journal reported that the companies’ joint networking firm sold sophisticated internet surveillance equipment to Iran — a story that the company says is false.

Despite the denial, boycotters have written Nokia saying they’ve destroyed their Nokia phones, and are telling friends and family to avoid Nokia products until the company “can make the right ethical choices.”

And remember, these are the folks that Obama wants to "negotiate" with, still.

As I remind you on ever post about the fight for freedom being held on the streets of Iran, keep your eye on Twitter feed #Iranelection, where Iranians, mostly using proxies are risking their lives to post news, pictures and videos, so the world can see their struggle for freedom.
