February 11, 2010 |  1:48 am

"Death to Russia," the protesters chant in the video above, countering the pro-government slogans of "Death to Israel" and "Death to America" on Thursday during the 22 Bahman.

In the video after the jump below, a group of people are chanting in support of Mir Hossein Mousavi, the opposition leader, in Tehran's subway.

In the video below, opposition supporters are seen marching down a street shouting "Ya Hussein, Mir Hossein." Some of their have covered their faces with surgical masks to hide their identity from the security forces.

Here's another clip showing more buses than people, echoing a claim by some opposition supporters that the pro-government rallies are staged.
