Representatives of the Green Movement in Iran announced that they will press forward with planned protest amid warnings from the Islamic Government in Iran. The Iranian people are fed up with the brutality of the regime that has enslaved them for more than 30 years.
Ardeshir Amir-Arjomand, a spokesman for the former presidential candidates Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, accused the government of hypocrisy for voicing support for protesters in Egypt and Tunisia while refusing to allow opposition activists to stage a peaceful demonstration.
“Our dictators in Tehran are ruling the country with terror and panic” he said. “They are afraid of their own people. They only sanction whatever pleases thems and disapprove of anything that is not under their surveillance. The call for renewed street protest in Iran is a clear sign that the green movement is still alive and that’s why they’re afraid of it.”
