The Only Way Forward

Worldwide Video Messages of Support for Iranian Students

For more than seventy years, Iranian students and academics have been one of the leading defenders of basic freedoms and rights. For this, they have paid dearly, with imprisonment, torture, rape and their lives.
Following the June 12th elections and the brutal crackdown on peaceful protestors during last summer, students and scholars, along with others including the members of womens movement, once again led the struggle.
Since the universities have opened in late September, Iranian students and scholars have again assumed a brave and active voice.
The following messages have been taped around the world in solidarity with  Iranian students and academics on 70th anniversary of the International Students’ Day.

We hope to raise global awareness of the continuing struggles and movement in Iran  and to highlight the mass demonstrations planned in Iran on December 7th, the Iranian Students’ Day (16 Azar in the Iranian calendar).

Continue sending your videos and written messages (see move4iran.org, united4iran.org) to honor the struggles and bravery of young Iranian men and women for their basic human and civil rights

Is Khamenei the last Supreme Leader of Iran?

Iranian reformists and liberals worldwide can be forgiven for thinking that the election and crackdown last summer strengthened the hardliners. In the short term, they’re right: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is still president and his opposition has gone to ground. In the long run, though, they may have already won the battle: Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is likely to be the last all-powerful Supreme Leader of the Islamic republic, even if the theocratic system manages to survive this tumult

Iran’s Green Movement Spreading Despite Crackdown

The presidential election of June 12, which Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was declared to have won, gave birth to a grassroots movement that has been evolving politically, embracing broader segments of the population, discovering new methods of struggle, and refusing to die despite widespread government violence.
