The size of the protest was impressive.

From here we can see the gates of Tehran University, where Fridays Prayers are taking place.

The protestors chant "Mousavi, Mousavi", "Allah Akbar", "down with the government", "release the political prisoners", "we might die but we'll never give up" and "down with Russia".
