Death to No One! Rallying Cry today in Tehran as Sea of Green Takes Over Hostage-taking Anniversary. Media Democracy Day coming this weekend in Vancouver.

Reza Sayah was on CNN (now on Youtube) -he describes what has been going on. And for a great history of US-Iran relationship going back to the pre-Shah era check out this short youtbube mini-doc.
