At 20:00 local time on Thursday, January 28, 2010, a large number of pilgrims gathered inside and outside the Massoumeh shrine in the holy city of Qom and held protests with chants of “death to dictator” on the fortieth day after the death of Ayatollah Hossein-Ali Montazeri. The protests came amid the hanging of two political prisoners by the regime and the sentencing of 11 more on charges of “moharebeh” (waging war against God).
This took place despite the hightening of supression and death threats by Government institutions such as the Courts , to focus the death penalty for protesters.

An other sign that people are focusing on the 11 February protests to come
