Graffiti in Tehran urges turnout to protest

Iran Focus – Pro-democracy activists are continuing a political graffiti campaign in Tehran ahead of the 9 July student-led uprising anniversary.

Slogans are targeting Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. “You despondent Khamenei, 9 July is on the way” and “Honourable Iranians, don’t forget about 9 July” were seen written on walls in dozens of locations, including in the Galoubandak and Haf-e Tir metro stations and Bahman Park in south Tehran’s Nazi-Abad district.

On 9 July 1999 widespread protests erupted across Iran after members of the hard-line Bassij militia raided a dormitory in Tehran University. One student was killed when he was thrown out of the window. The ensuing nationwide protests that erupted came as a shock to Iran’s clerical leaders and lasted for over a week.

Also, as they did May, in the lead-up to the anniversary of the stolen election, Raja News ( hard-line website close to Ahmadinejad) once again is reporting that authorities have voiced concern that supporters of the People’s Mojahedin (PMOI) call mobile phones and land lines in Tehran, playing back audio messages by opposition leader Massoud Rajavi in advance of the anniversary of the 9 July 1999 uprising.

The state-run Jahan website, run by allies of hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on Wednesday wrote: “The most recent activities of this defunct group include organising gatherings by offering food and money to participants, trumping up news and broadcasting foreign reports, creating many weblogs, sending voice messages to mobile phones and also calling people in their homes”.

“These activities have intensified in the run-up to the 9 July anniversary”, it said.
Jahan expressed concern at the impact of the PMOI’s satellite television channel on Iranians. “The terrorist Monafeqin (pejorative term used by the regime for the PMOI) grouplet, which is on its last legs, has began repetitive and desperate activities including unrealistic programs and satire which it broadcasts on its satellite television channel”.
