how to make Green Fire for Chahar-shanbeh soori

Below is a link that gives information on how to make green fire for Chahar-shanbeh shoori.

Please be safe.

Note: I have never made this kind of fire myself, so I do not know how safe it is or not.

Don't worry about 22 Bahman/ نگران 22 بهمن نباشید

نگران نباشنید که در 22 بهمن حضور مردم اونطوری که باید دیده نشد. در آخر دولت مجبور بود که اینترنت را یواش بکند که مردم نتوانند به هم پیام بدند. ولی حکومت که نمی تواند بدون اینترنت اقتصاد داشته باشه. به هر حال باید پول اون خودفروشها رو که برای سرکوب مردم , و برای یه چند تا کیک سدیس و گوشت و مزد برای ضرب و شتم ملت, را از یک جایی بیاره. در کشورهای پیشرفته وبا اقتصاد سالم, مگه میشه که هی هر سه هفته به خاطر نبود اینترنت شرکتها بی کار بشند؟ نگران نباشید. دولت یا به خاطر ورشکستگی فرو می پاشه, یا به خاطرحضور مردم در تظاحرات علیه این حکومت.

I just realized something.

The reason why the 22 Bahman didn't do well, was because the government slowed down the internet. The government will loose either way.

If the government slows down the internet, it will loose money on low productivity in the economy. In productive countries in the world, businesses barely acquiese to giving a worker two days off because of snow. They can't afford to just have their workers not be able to produce due to slow internet every three weeks due to a demonstration.

Additionally, the government has to pay significant costs for all their thugs and mercenaries that they need to scour the country to collect for beating down the green demonstrators. That is a lot of money too.

If the government doesn't slow down the internet, the people will assemble and show their discontent. If it does slow down the internet, it will eventually collapse because it doesn't have funds to pay those money grubbing thugs that like to beat people for a living.

Either way, khamenei and his government are in a sinking ship.

Islamic Republic Master of Illusions

22 Bahman Pro Government Rally inside Azadi square
http://news.gooya.com/didaniha/archives/2010/02/100390.php
Above there are two photos of demonstrations in Iran. One demonstration is of a June 18th protest, the other is of last Thursday's Pro Government 22 Bahman protest. The two images are very different. The 22 Bahman seems to have a lot of empty, where the June 18th seems to show more demonstrations. Additionally, the video below, shows how the 22 Bahman protest looked inside Azadi square. The way Ahmadinejad's rally was filmed, one would think a very large crowd participated. But when you see some honest video without masterful editing and filming at various angles to try to create an image of an increased crowd, it does look quite different.

22 Bahman Analysis


Right now I know from the outside it looks like the 22 Bahman efforts were unsuccessful. Compared to the Iranian hardliners ability to hold a rally with Ahmadinejad giving a speech, it looks like hardliners have gotten their way for today. We are down, but not defeated. What we need to do is to analyze and see what went wrong and learn lessons for next time.

What we can do is to start learning their tricks from the night before. In hindsight, we should have noticed that since they were blocking the city from the night before, that they were planning to create a virtual blockade and not permit the green people to demonstrate. Since they have to bring their resources from all over the country, it takes them awhile to get everything together. Also, we have to remember, the hardliners also have to maintain their "demonstrators", since they are mercenaries and need their food, water and prize for doing their bidding. These should be to the Green people's advantage. We let them build their human fence, and then expected to be able to penetrate in broad daylight.

So in my opinion how could this have been countered?

Disabling their ability to build the fence from prior to the time of demonstration. To stop the blockade, it should have been encountered from the night before while they were trying to build their Basiji-fence. Trying to tear down the wall afterwards, was difficult.

working to disable the basiji's ability to assemble


They didn't win, they just pulled an illusion. They blocked off a small area, filled their area with a small amount of people, and then filmed it. Remember, they are a master of illusions and photoshop.


Besides all of that, how can their demonstrations be a win, if they needed to have a military-esque atmosphere to hold it together? Does the photo above look like the hardliner's had a successful demonstration because they were the majority, or because they brought in armed forces?
