بیانیه مجمع روحانیون مبارز در بزرگداشت مناسبت های ماه خرداد /The Assembly of Combatant Clerics issues statement for the anniversary of the birth of the Green movement


On approaching the anniversary of the Green movement’s birth, the Assembly of Combatant Clerics (reformist) issued a statement.

In its statement, the Assembly reminds of the historical importance of the month of Khordad from the beginning of Imam Khomeini’s movement against dictatorship to his passing and then yo the birth of the reform movement by the election of Mohammad Khatami and his re-election four years later, which all happened in the month of Khordad.

 The Assembly continues, that the great participation of people in last year’s presidential election could have paved the country’s path to a better future, but unfortunately the people’s enthusiasm was responded to unfairly by the regime and also the people’s protests in the most civilized and peaceful manner on Khordad 25th was brutally confronted by the government and instead of showing respect for the people and acknowledging their objections, the government called them rioters and created a heavy security environment, made arrests, and put pressure on people.

The statement continues that after a year many are in prisons with heavy and unfair sentences.  The Assembly of Combatant Clerics hopes that the situation changes as soon as possible and the freedoms asserted in the constitution be reinstated and some specific organizations stop their extensive interventions in politics, economy and culture. The Association also hopes that the plans and behaviours that are against the country’s national interests, especially in the international scene will be stopped.  

In the end, the Assembly reiterates that the solution to get out of the current crisis is to free all political prisoners and hold free elections.

Some of the leading members of the Assembly include;  Former President Mohammad Khatami, Mohammad Ali Abtahi, Mohammad Mousavi Khoeini, and the brother of the Supreme Leader, Hadi Khamenei.
