Kurdistan general strikes: developing news

There is news that Kurdistan Province has started a general strike to protest the May 9 executions of Farzad Kamangar, Shirin Alam Hooli, Mehdi Hosseinian, Farhad Vakili, and Ali Heydarian at Evin Prison, four of whom were Kurdish activists. The abrupt and unannounced executions have created a wave of anger nationwide. It is likely that there will be show-downs and confrontations in that region as Kurdistan residents show their objection to the executions and IRI tries to restore order and establish control. There is little official news coming out of Iran about the tensions in Kurdistan and there is only chatter on unofficial blogs and Twitter or FriendFeed about the developments. If you hear anything, please post it here. Please help get the voices out of Iran. Please remain cognizant of separatist propaganda, as these are sensitive times for Iran, and we have to all act responsibly and stay together as a nation trying to overcome a difficult time. Please share the news. We are the media.
