Iranian Protests

Tear gas and batons: the only retort of an insidious will to the restless masses, the new emblem of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Ahmadinejad, a mouthpiece of tyrant clerics, proclaims his re-election as "among the great achievements of the Iranian people," and he's right. A powder keg needs but fuse and spark, and this president's short-sighted ambition in manipulating the June 12th election may well have incited the riots that will end the regime that should never have been.

The Arrogant Atheist supports the protesters in their stand against an oppressive government; as the Islamic Republic of Iran administers its will with the baton, its streets swathed in blood, thirty years of echoes from the violent reign of Ayatollahs ringing still, these new blows fall before the eyes of the world. Let it see the true nature of a theocracy: sanctioned by a book but enforced at the point of a gun.

To aid the Iranian people in this pivotal moment in history, we're giving 50% of all proceeds from sales of our shirt, "Nothing is your own," to the Foundation for Democracy in Iran which promotes freedom, internationally recognized standards of human rights and regime change in Iran.

Visit: to get the shirt. Do your part- wear it around to promote discussion- so the people in Iran aren't fighting in obscurity.
