A group of former POWs (prisoners of war) from the eight year Iran-Iraq War met with Mir Hossein Mousavi and Zahra Rahnavard on the [20th] anniversary of their release and proud return home.

According to a report by Kaleme, the meeting began with the freed POWs expressing their viewpoints and opinions about the current issues and events of the country, particularly the events of the last year. Their comments were followed by Mousavi and Rahnavard expressing their own opinions.

Zahra Rahnavard congratulated the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan and the anniversary of their release. She then pointed out that the women who were imprisoned by Saddam’s forces should also be represented among the former POWs. She then said: “Unfortunately I have to ask: during your imprisonment by Saddam, did you ever think that one day, if you are released, you will witness the imprisonment of hundreds and maybe even thousands of freedom-loving individuals in your own country?”

Kalemeh reports the complete transcripts of this message as follows:

In the name of God, the Compassionate and the Merciful,

We wish our countrymen, inside and outside the country, no matter where they may be, a happy Norouz. Norouz, this ancient, eternal holiday.

[new year prayer] O savior of hearts and sights, guide of night and day, you who can transform our being, transform me to the very best.

How strange that this ancient ceremony has been so elegantly woven with an Islamic narrative, and not only with a beautiful Islamic narrative, but with the modern society we live in today, and at a time when the green movement has engraved its own beautiful signature on it.

Transform me to the very best is the very wish of the green movement. The green movement wants to work for the betterment of its own condition, and the circumstances of its nation. And evolution in any effort is a beautiful symmetry. The green movement is not a movement that works to overthrow. It is a movement that seeks evolution, an evolution from the status quo to a better circumstance. But allow Hafez to light the way, and let us use the trust we have in him every day of our lives: … Continue Reading

Dr. Zahra Rahnavard, painter, sculptor and a professor at the University of Tehran, begins her talk by wishing the release of all political prisoners, especially the woman. She says: “I hope that all female prisoners will be released before the new year. Everybody, from women’s rights activists, child’s rights activists and journalists to the nameless women who were arrested while protesting in the street, and the female students who have done nothing but to demand their rights.

Rahnavard did not forget the mourning mothers. “our hearts and prayers are with those mourning mothers whose flowers have withered. The mothers of Neda, Sohrab, Seyed Ali, Ashkan, Kianoush, Ramin Ramezani, Alireza Eftekhari, Mahram Cheghini and the mothers of innocent martyrs like Naser Amirnejad, Iman Namzai, Kaveh Sabzalipour and those whose names we don’t even know. And those mothers and families whose loved ones have endured great injuries after the election, some have been injured in the protests, some have been tortured while in custody, and some have been in prison for months now. … Continue Reading

Mahdi Karoubi: Complete Statement for the Anniversary of the Birth of the Green Movement

June 20, 2010

The vote they stole from you and the rights that they took from you unjustly are a shameful stain that cannot be hidden with whatever colour it is painted over. This is so much the case that after one year, despite all the pressures and intimidation, not only have your rightful demands not been forgotten, but this desire for change has taken deep root in different layers of society, based on an extensive social network.
