The latest from our friends in Iran.
Despite of all limitations imposed by regime’s security and SSF, purchasing of feast combustive materials and explosives has escalated. Streets, sidewalks, Bazaar and central regions of the capital are flooded with such materials. People have vastly welcomed these goods so plenty of them are at hand. Beside their purchase of sweets and clothing and nuts for the New Year, firecrackers and fire-jets are amongst the most important purchases though SSF severely punishes the sellers. People’s tendency to buy these goods for Feast of Fire Day has made all the controls useless.
Students of Sharif University distributed leaflets for Feast of Fire day. Also on March 11 one of the students sprayed paint on all surveillance cameras so that they were out or order for 24 hours. Regime agents had to collect the cameras.
In order to confront protest of youths on March 16 the clerical regime intends to establish safe houses in different regions of Tehran to station its suppressive forces in them.
A man working in Khamenei’s place said that Khamenei has meetings every day with one of the heads of the state and RGC commanders. One day it is Rafsanjani, the other day Radan or Larijani and etc. These days RGC is stationed in all regions.
Other cities- March 12
On March 12 about 1030 to 12 pm residents of Nobahar chanted slogans in commemoration of Neda, Sohrab and other martyrs of the Uprising. They chanted: “we remember Neda and we swear to Sohrab’s blood that we will die to gain our freedom”.
It is for five days that since 7pm sound of firecrackers are heard from regions of Zayton Karmandi, Zayton Kargari, Kyanpars, Kyanabad and Koroush. To confront these acts motorbike patrols start patrolling since 7 pm.
Each year on Feast of Fire Day there has been vast clashes between people and SSF and it is more than four years that this day takes a political gesture in Ahwaz.
Since March 11 military arrangements have a new formation in Ahwaz and the whole battalion of (anti) Mohammad Rasolallah has entered the city and is in combat formation.
Regime’s arrangements for the Uprising on March 16.
1-At the beginning of the recent week a session was held at the base of (anti) Mohammad Rasolallah Corps. The subject was measures for prevention of March 16 uprising. After this session commanders of RGC held another session with SSF to harmonize their acts with them.
2-In the session it was decided that RGC forces will be present in plainclothes.
3-In their session with SSF, RGC commanders decided that NAJA (Security force of Islamic Republic) and its especial units must be 100% on alert and the Especial Units will block the streets and main squares. Traffic police will also help them in that regard.
4-According to the decision taken RGC has appointed some locations in the city as the gathering points of its forces and if needed it will ask SSF and Especial Units to help in confronting people from these locations.
5-Neighborhoods’ Bassij patrols will continue and act for identifying dissidents by their check points. It was determined that RGC forces would be mostly on motorbikes on March 16 patrolling the city so that they can easily go from one point to the other. Using cars would be at minimum.
6-The duty of Plainclothes is determined as such: if there is an insurrection in the streets and people start chanting against heads of the regime they have to engage and disperse the gathering and suppress the protestors.
7-Prevention of using feast explosives has been determined as the task of police stations and fire squads.
8-Tehran is divided into regions and it is determined that to confront people in each region, Bassij forces of that region will be used.
9-Number of RGC forces present in Tehran would be 30000. But they will use local forces of Tehran province that are stationed in the mosques too. Suppressive forces of Especial Units will also be used.
10-The detained youths of that day will not be kept in police stations and centers of suppressive forces in the city because regime fears people would attack these centers to free the arrested youths. Some remote bases are appointed for the purpose. The detainees will be transferred later to official prisons.
11-RGC and SSF must conduct psychological war and enlarge the suppressive measures taken before March 16 so that it can prevent the vast and active presence of people in Feast of Fire Day.

Tehran, March 11, 2010
It is easy for regime to target the sites that their service providers are in Iran by hackers. The hackers can easily enter the sites and manipulate them. But those sites that their service providers are stationed abroad are not easy targets though it is still possible to hack them.
One of regime elements in Ministry of Communication said: “it is not easy to hack those sites that their service providers are located abroad. It is not easy to enter them grasp a letter or read it. Technically it is possible but the act is a difficult one.
They can be attacked. It is even possible to enter them and fish some information but entering them without anybody noticing it is very difficult”.
About two weeks ago elements affiliated with RGC had a gathering in Tehran’s Shahrak Qods. Safar Harandi regime’s Minister of Guidance participated in the gathering and held a speech.
These hacking acts are conducted under the supervision of RGC and its hackers.
Regime evaluated that it was a mistake that the minister participated in the gathering because this will reveal government’s participation in the act while this is illegal and can be legally pursuit according to Internet laws.
