Via Iran Press News:
Over 100 people were arrested by the regime in Tehran.
The Western media reported that opposition leaders called off the major protests on the election anniversary.
The AFP reported:
Iran’s opposition issued fresh calls for freedom on Saturday as the anniversary of a presidential election that sparked deadly street unrest passed off without major anti-government protests.
Demonstrators stayed away after opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi cancelled plans for new rallies against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad because of safety concerns.
But the authorities still deployed thousands of security personnel in Tehran to quell any dissent, with police and the feared Islamic Basij militia out in force, especially around Tehran University and Sharif University.
The opposition leaders have vowed to continue their struggle.
On the rooftops in Tehran they chanted “Death to Khamenei!”
