After two days of violent street protests in one week, Iran’s opposition Green Movement said Monday it was pondering its next move and considering a continuation of street protests, according to opposition websites.
A new date hasn’t been announced for antigovernment protests although supporters posted on the opposition’s Facebook page that this Tuesday or Wednesday are possible.
Opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karoubi have been under house arrest for over a week with little communication with the outside world. Their absence, however, appears to have had little impact on the organization of the movement or its ability to mobilize.
“Dictators should know that our fight is not going to end. God willing with courage, coordination and perseverance our next steps will be firmer and harsher,” said Ardeshir Amir Arjemand, part of the committee and Mr. Mousavi’s spokesperson abroad, according to the opposition websites.
A team of advisers and activists, mostly abroad, have formed a group called the Central Organization Committee for the Green Movement and are now calling the shots.
