Trashmen of Tehran

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

As an Iranian-American and a journalist, it’s been hard to tear my mind away from what’s happening in Tehran right now. I worried the garblogging might suffer as a result, but Douglas Brodoff, whom you may remember from his paintings of “les petits hommes verts” in France, just sent me a link to his blog and this incredible YouTube video of Tehran’s garbage collectors calling for the removal of President Ahmadinejad. THANK YOU, Douglas.

They are chanting: “Take Mahmoud away! Take the garbage away!”
