Images of Street Art in Tehran are screaming for change. Sometimes the best presents you receive are the ones that show you people are not alone in fighting for what is right. Weapons of this battle?
Feet. Minds. Paint. Words.
If you wander through the streets of Tehran, you may encounter some of these images. Look at each of these pictures closely.
Another thing you will notice if you wander around the streets of Tehran, is a country whose population is primarily under the age of 35. The beards who ran the Islamic Revolution had an 'issue with condoms' around 1979. And since nobody could go out and have a drink and a dance to bide their evenings, young couples took up more amorous pursuits. The result is a country with a young population. A population with ever increasing female university students. A country with people who know how to dodge firewalls. A people imbued with a passion for self-expression and a rich artistic tradition.
This picture above says volumes about the state of women in Iran.
President Ahmadinejad's picture has been defaced here. This also speaks volumes. What does it say about the state of the election in Iran? That there are problems. It was not handled well, and voter fraud is absolutely apparent.
