Tehran braces for another day of protests today despite governmental bans on "unauthorized gatherings." To help us analyze the protests and draw parallels to the past is an expert on Iranian history and politics, Hamid Dabashi, a professor of Iranian Studies at Columbia University and the author of Iran: A People Interrupted and Islamic Liberation Theology: Resisting the Empire. We will also talk to Ali, a 25-year old mechanical engineer in Tehran, who is a supporter of opposition candidate Mir Hussein Mousavi.
