Meia ready

Iranian elections

Many of you are probably already aware of the apparently rigged Iranian elections.   Karen Boerboom on BluzzFlash, along with numerous others, is calling for the wearing of green on Monday to show support for Iranian protestors of the allegedly fraudulent re-election of Ahmadinejad, the crazed Holocaust denier that has been president for the past four years.

People on Twitter and other social networking services have been posting proxy server addresses and port numbers (148.233.239.24 port 80; 69.92.182.124 port 2100; 128.112.139.28 port 3124) which bypass government blocks in attempts to prevent protestors from organizing.  @Change_for_Iran and @persiankiwi are two of the more prominent updaters on Twitter, along with the #iranelection topic.  I've been catching updates from the comic artists I follow — Warren Ellis, Neil Gaiman, and Pascalle Lepas (from Zap!) — while re-tweeting and copying to Facebook.  Just thought I'd spread things here too.
