One more news post for the day…

One third of the Iranian parliament has just resigned. This comes in protest of the Guardian Council’s decision to ban over half the candidates for parliament for standing for office, including a large number of incumbents. The move comes after a three-week sit-in which the current parliament held in protest.

The situation is heating up; whether this will be the thing that triggers a large-scale change remains to be seen. Best of luck to the reformers.
