IRAN: 'Street' newspaper is being distributed by protesters

The European Photo Agency has posted this photo of a newspaper being issued by Iranian protesters. It's called Street because all photos and stories are from demonstrators on the streets of Iran. Distribution has been focused on Iranian Internet users in Tehran.

Tweets popping up with "#Iran" also have been echoing the cry for protesters' voices to be heard. Opposition leader Mir-Hossein Mousavi's website said that because the opposition has no media presence in Iran, all need to help spread his message, "One Person = One Broadcaster." It was in the same spirit that "Street" was compiled and sent out.
