Iranian students stormed the UK Embassy in Tehran Tuesday, breaking down the door, throwing papers and replacing the British flag with an Iranian one, a CNN crew witnessed.

The protesting students also threw stones at the embassy's windows.

    By the time you have broken down the door, thrown papers around the embassy, and replaced their flag with your own....does throwing rocks really seem that important?

    Why is it always iranian 'students'? Wasn't it 'students' at the us embassy? Maybe the iranians who give us the news just use that word to mention young people in general.. Or, probably more likely, young thugs the government sent.. It didn't mention any arrests...

    Mr. Meals or Mills, says that the LAPD, is moving in, ordering “Occupiers” to vacate the park’s premises. Leave the areas, as they surround the areas, helicopters flying overhead, local news media on the scene. A very well planned out tactical maneuver, to crowd containment controls, domineering police enforcing of the laws. Some having their finger on the triggers of rubber bean bag bullet guns in threatening manners. Another protestor tells a rouge renegade Reptilian riot cop, not to aim or point his weapon at him, in violation of their own code of conduct, No…? SA time line: 3:29 am update, 11-30-2011 Thursday.

    The on looking by standing crowds are chanting, “The people united will never be defeated”.
    Spencer Mills, Ustream Livestream, Oakland home base, travels to SF, and LA, media coverage, “guerrilla” he says, Has a B.A. degree, has been unemployed for some time, and that he quit his job so that he could do mobile media full time, travel around to other "Occupy" sites, cities to keep up with the exciting action..., as long as he receives some support and is appreciated. He’s live right now tonight in Los Angeles, butt from my art studio San Antonio, Texas time line, at 2:51 am, counting down to eviction, tent tenements camped out on the state, park places as “Occupiers”! Riot police are staging strategic raid ranks ready to move in and take over the plaza, take down the tents and arrest resisters.

    This is obviously funny to say that they were student. Do you see any student in those pictures? Or do you really think a simple student has that much power to storm British embassy? I'm Iranian and I know my murder government. They use the name of the students all the time to show its people decision not their own politics.
