Demonstrations in Iran

Free Thoughts has great photos from "the demonstration held today in Tehran by hundreds of brave Iranian women against the Islamic regime's official and systematic Gender Apartheid policy."

Take a look. She rightly wonders if Sean Penn, who is acting as a "journalist" for the San Francisco Chronicle in Iran has seen the demonstrators.

In related news, Penn's camera was apparently confiscated for a time. Does anyone think he will finally understand how much freedom we enjoy in the United States compared to other places in the world?
