Most Americans are currently obsessed with Nigerians and flight security (for good reason), but the revolution not-so-quietly brewing in Iran is equally noteworthy. Yesterday, Flickr user Tamishir posted this photo, which seems pretty evocative — even to someone like me who knows little about the symbology.

And captured some haunting video of protest shouts echoing across the night sky in Tehran:

Far be it from me or anyone to tell Iran how to run itself, but given the country’s current leadership, I can see the people’s temptation to ditch the devil they know for one they don’t.
