Iran Riot - Election results protest
People opposed to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad retaining the role of President of Iran by rigging the election clashed with police and set up barricades of burning tires on Saturday 13 June 2009 as authorities claimed the hard-line president was re-elected in a landslide. The rival candidate said the vote was tainted by widespread fraud and troubled civilians responded with the most serious unrest in the capital in a decade. By nightfall, the cell phone service was cut in the capital Tehran. Ahmadinejad, in a nationally televised victory speech, accused the foreign media of coverage that harms the Iranian people. There was more rioting at night and fires continued to burn on the streets of Tehran.

Rest in peace Neda.
Murdered by a member of the Iranian Basij, 20 June 2009

The Basij is a volunteer-based Iranian paramilitary force founded by the order of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini on November 1979. The Basij are subordinate to, and receive their orders from, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

President Ahmadinejad is a veteran of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards which he joined in 1985.
As an elite group, members of Iranian Revolutionary Guards have influence in Iran's political world. Nearly one third of the members elected to Iran's majlis in 2004 are ex-Iranian Revolutionary Guards.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards are thought to control around a third of Iran's economy through a series of subsidiaries and trusts. part 1
