The regime in Iran is now trying to suggest the protests that had been sweeping the country are now dying down. While there is certainly an ebb and flow to the protests as well as a lack of cohesion and leadership to the growing movement, protests are still raging and more and more people are joining.

The regime in Iran has been trying to put a confident face on about the situation and has even suggested that the worst is over.  The problem for the Ayatollahs is that the protests are not going away. Here are some Tweets that suggest that the protests are growing.

While the continueing protests do not have the energy level the first protests had, they show that the opposition to the regime is widespread and turning into a a permanent feature. This may make the movement far more dangerous than originally believed.
