CTV Toronto - Protest held in T.O. to condemn election in Iran - CTV News, Shows and Sports -- Canadian Television

Quote:
The political tension in Iran brought nearly 1,000 people to the streets of Toronto on Sunday as Iranian-Canadians gathered to protest a rumoured rigged election in their homeland.

So should we now expect all nationalities to hold protests in Toronto streets over situations in their home countries?

I think many already do, they just don't often get much media attention.

Andrew Sullivan's blog is a great place to follow, with links to the utterly amazing (and some insanely brave, sad etc) Twitter accounts.

The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan

As an aside, I think almost definitely a media-turning point as well.

I was searching FYM for a thread about this yesterday and was really surprised to see there was none. The lack of coverage on this topic on television is disturbing. I have to see if my newspaper has any articles on it.

Admittedly, Iran is one of those countries I have a tremendous interest in, particularly due to the combination of a people with rich history and culture, coupled with a despicable government.

I've been reading about it and the election semi-regularly. I just, admittedly, find that I'm at a loss for words more these days than not (and introversion doesn't really lend itself to internet discussions).

That lack of coverage everywhere yesterday was unnerving.
