What they are chanting in Iran

Here is a video from yesterday's protests in Tehran with a translation of the chants.

"Death to the Dictator" (see earlier post)
"As long as Ahmadinejad is in power, the situation will be the same"
"Allahu Akbar" (God is Great)
"People why are you sitting...Iran is becoming Palestine" (The Iranian regime never tires of talking about the Palestinians)
"Ya Hossein, Mir Hossein" (A reference to Hossein and then to Musavi, whose first names are Mir Hossein)
"Do not fear...we are all together"
