The Chronicle counted about 100 protesters at Saturday’s demonstration protesting Iran’s contentious reelection of hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Steve Rhodes was there, exhaustively documenting the civil action via twitter, flickr, and video (he captured Sup. Mirkarimi’s own “whether you like it or not” moment above, see the rest of his quik video here). We encourage you to check his hard work out.
