The Iranian Year 1389 Ends: Marked with Executions and Prison Terms

Iran’s former Prime Minister Mir-Hossein Mousavi called the Iranian year 1389 (which ended on March 20, 2011) the year of “Resistance and Perseverance for the Rightful and Legal Demands of the Iranian Nation,” which in fact turned into the year of violent crackdown and resistance by the people. Leaders of the Green Movement who began the year by stressing the demands of the people ended up in jail by the end of the year.

The year began with messages by these leaders but ended with those of their children.

Mousavi and his wife Zahra Rahnavard predicted that 1389 would be a year of problems and embraced the year while Mehdi Karoubi, another green movement leader did not view 1389 as a good year and announced, “We oppose a regime which is as small as a boat.”
