Reports about NYC protest:

Heading to the UN with full pockets of I am Iran writsbands and a special feeling of excitement
At 42nd and 3rd around a thousand green protesters rallying toward UN
Saw Ali Afshari, former student leader in the crowd
We're now a block away from UN, crowd getting bigger
Crowd chanting ya hossein, mir hossein
A mix of green , red and yellow flags in front of UN
I have to be honest and fair, this gathering is not only small but also split 4 ways between communists, monarchists, greens and MKO
Of all groups, MKO is the mosr prepared with a full stage, sophisticated sound system and multiple cameras covering the event...disappointing and disturbing
Just talked to sazegara for a few minutes. The afternoon session is taken over by greens
Third and 47th is packed with greens, no sign of red, yellow or flags
I talked to a few ppl on the train inclduing a church delegate that was on his way to AN's dinner
I wonder where MKO finds the money from to run such orginzed expensive campaigns

Please don't forget to throw some nice ripe peaches at the Iranian mission in NY...
