Demonstrations: Bahman 25/February 14



Demonstrations have been called for by Green movement leaders, Moussavi and Karroubi in solidarity with Tunisian and Egyptian people’s Revolution.

Moussavi Website Kaleme contains a page dedicated to this event.

They had previously asked the government for permit, but they are being ignored so far.

So the special page in Kaleme puts forth Islamic Republic’s Constitution Article 27 which state the citizen are permitted to conduct peaceful demonstrations, (article 9)without interference from any government agency.(translated to the best of my ability).

Government for the past week or so, has arrested numerous people.

Looking at a source list, it is so long that would be impractical to list it here.

I am sure you know Karroubi was put under house arrest over a week ago with telephone and other means of communications cut off.

The movement is becoming Country wide, aside from Tehran It should reach Khorramshahr, Abadan, Mazandaran and elsewhere.

The government has been placed between the rock and the hard place.

They know in fact demonstrations is a show of force by disaffected Iranians who want the whole world to know this regime does not represent them and has shackled them by the use of force.

If the regime does not allow them to conduct a peaceful demonstration in support of the brave people of Egypt and Tunisia, then they have shown their hypocrisy on the issue.

As of this writing, it is apparent that the masses are getting larger and larger and braver to hit the streets.

This is being made possible by availability of software that has the ability to neutralized governments blocking of the websites.

Therefore, news and communications have become possible.

The software can be obtained from Also, the word is out that the government now has decided not to confront the demonstrators, but be present to control any move beyond that.

It is no doubt the behavior of the Egyptian Armed forces toward the demonstrators has brought shame to the IRGC and Basij forces.

Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, the Revolutionary Guard Commander, has decided to put the police force up front to keep order and not the Guard and Basij forces.

That in itself is the large step towards the Light at the end of the tunnel.

I send my love and prayer to my “Hamvatanan”.
