Over the past few days, a growing movement in Iran has captured the attention of the international community. The Islamic Republic of Iran is trying to silence the voices of the Iranian people. Prompted by a so-called “election“, the Iranian people took to the streets to protest its results.
Today, protests against the Islamic Republic of Iran are taking place throughout Iran. Basiji (secret police) forces have taken the streets using deadly force against the Iranian citizenry. The Islamic Republic is clamping down on all forms of communication including excluding foreign media from covering the peaceful protests. Internet sites, cell phones and other forms of communication are being restricted.
We must support the Iranian people and provide them the tools and the means necessary to peacefully dissent.
