Here is an appeal from Amir, who is of Iranian extraction:
Could you please ask your readers, the ones which are technically capable to set up proxy services for IP ranges inside Iran? These addresses can be sent to some of the people who are using facebook/twitter from Iran. All mobile phones are down and this is the only means of communication from Iran.
It would also be helpful if you could post the proxy information on twitter under #iranelection with the word proxy in your tweet.
Some people in Iran seem to have access to twitter via other proxies, so they'll spread the word and addresses. The current proxies are gradually being blocked. Some are complaining that they are on their last proxy.
Here is a recent tweet from Change_in_Iran:
using freegate now, nothing else working. no power in most of the buildings & cellphones & land lines are out again. #iranelection
is a chance that they may find a way to stop freegate, in which case
we'll be completely shut off from what's happening in Iran. This is really the only useful thing I could think of which we could do right now for those currently in Iran.
[Another tweet from Change in Iran:
we have now some students with urgent need of medical attention I'm calling out to all ppl who can come here don't leave us ]
