God Be With You, Iran

The battle for the overthrow of the fascist mullahs has begun.

TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) -- Security forces made "a very large show of force" in midtown and southeastern Tehran, using tear gas and clubs to beat back protesters as clashes erupted during the unrest, witnesses told CNN.

This comes as demonstrators emerged on city streets to protest last week's elections in defiance of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's Friday pronouncement that protests must end.
Police fired guns in the air, and Iran's Press TV also reported the use of water cannons to disperse protesters.
