A number of plainclothes, Basij, police, and anti-riot forces in the streets of Tehran are estimated to be more than last week’s protest.

Kaleme reports that a few hundred security and military forces are present at Fatemi Square and Fatemi Street, shoulder to shoulder with each other, and they are not letting anybody gather. The north side of Fatemi Square is completely controlled by police and the south side of the street is dominated by plainclothes forces.

Kaleme reporters compared today’s atmosphere in Tehran with June 20, 2009. People from all ages, from teenagers to senior citizens, are countering oppressive forces.

Today a new group of Revolutionary Guards, with uniforms never seen before, are present in the streets of Tehran.

Security and police forces are aimleslly moving among people, sometimes checking people’s ID cards on Vali-Asr Street, around Motahari Street to Valiasr Square, Jomhouri Street and Vali-Asr crossroads.

The latest reports indicate that gatherings toward Enqelab and Jamalzadeh are forming.
