Mohsen Sazegara, is an Iranian journalist and pro-democracy political activist. Dr. Sazegara held several high ranking positions during the early years of the Iranian Revolution, such as deputy prime minister in political affairs, deputy minister for heavy industry, deputy chairman of the budget and planning department, one of the founders of the Revolutionary Guard, and many more before becoming disillusioned with the government in 1989 and pushing for reforms. He applied to become a candidate for President of Iran in the 2001 election and was refused.
His reformist policies clashed with the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, eventually resulting in his arrest in early-2003. Following his release in August 2003, he moved to the United Kingdom for medical attention. He currently resides in the United States.
Since the election (selection) in June 2009 of Ahmadinejad, Mr. Sazegara has posted daily youtube videos in support of the green movement in Iran. Many Iranians inside and out of Iran view his messages, as he can give alittle insight into the mind and machinery of the regime and the revolutionary guard. Here is his website that was hacked by the regime: Sazegara.net
Note: As soon as he sets up new site, we will post it here. For now, his videos can be seen Here
