The full text of Mir Hossein Mousavi’s message is as follows:
In the name of God
The imprisoned free men! All freedom seekers and justice demanders heard your message and witnessed your perseverance on your humanitarian and legitimate demands.
Congratulations to you! Your resistance is proof that one can imprison bodies but no one can conquer souls.
The nation’s loved ones and the frontiers of the Green movement! Now that the message of you and your combatant families has resonated throughout the world, people are worried about your health as the Green assets of the country. We ask all of you to end your hunger strikes and also urge the prison authorities to honour the rights of prisoners based on the very existing imperfect laws and regulations; and do not put the dignity and honour of the country on sale more than this in front of other nations of the world.
Mir Hossein Mousavi
