From Iranbaan:

The “green shopping” protest planned for today turned into violence with police interference. #iranelection
Jewellers bazaar was closed due to security reasons & forces didn’t let shoppers stop & shop in bazaar. #iranelection
IRIB teams were filming the bazaar trying to create a video showing bazaar was calm. #iranelection
As of 3pm “a large number of people” started a protest in front of the roofed bazaar in 15th of Khordad ave. #iranelection
People were chanting “Down with the dictator” & “This poor government is illegitimate”. #iranelection
Plain cloths & special forces in Naser Khosro, Bouzar Jomehori & other streets leading to bazaar were beating ppl. #iranelection
This is the first time since #iranelection that protesters gather in Tehran’s bazaar
