We must turn our homes into centers of ingenuity and innovation. Each citizen must now be a center for wise political, economic, social and cultural action.

Subsidy Elimination and the Structure of the Government’s Relationship with the People

In countries that have oil, the story is a little different. The government no longer takes from one group (say, in the form of taxes) and give to another group. In oil-rich countries, re-distribution policies, in effect become distribution policies.

Mousavi: Special Groups See Their Interests are in Division

Political institutions that were taken apart through wrong policies are gradually getting closer and closer. They negotiate and share ideas at dinner tables. It is [demand for] freedom, justice and protection of people’s rights that is connecting them. The lines that separated us from ‘them’ are fading away and different sides are talking more to each other. Thanks to people’s very green Movement, today national unity and affinity has become more prominent among the very different cultures, ethnicities religions and social layers.

Mousavi’s Speech in meeting with Iran-Iraq war Veterans

Today, the country is facing various issues and crises nationally and internationally. One of the solutions to escape from these crises is to eliminate [the culture of] deceit from the society and to stop these false waves [of short-lived news.]. Be honest with the people, instead of such vain mainstreaming and storytelling.

Zahra Rahnavard’s Remarks in a meeting with Iran-Iraq war Veterans

The establishment however, throws them in prison. They do not realize that this is the voice of the Iranian people that has manifested itself into this complaint from the seven heroes. Anyhow, how do some of these government officials curse Saddam, but treat people even worse than Saddam did?

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

We are from God, and we reach towards him

The bloodcurdling criminal act of the Illegitimate Zionist regime by murdering tens of human right activists, is yet another black chapter in the wrong-doings of this usurper regime.

By stating its detestation from this criminal act, Islamic Iran’s Mosharekat party asks for the attention of all free thinkers, reformers, and defenders of human rights to the following matter: No one should expect a regime that is founded on belligerence and transgression to act with compassion and respect human rights. Naturally, governments and organizations who illegitimately support this cause of chios and instability in the region and leave it free to carry on such vicious acts are directly or indirectly responsible for this tragedy.

The brutal attack of the Zionist regime on the ships carrying food, clothing and other necessities for the oppressed people of Palestine was a disaster that shows that this regime does not abide to even the most elementary principles of humanity and ethics, and only follows the logic of force and oppression.

Kalemeh: We are approaching the anniversary of the departure of Imam [Khomeini.] This year the ceremonies seem different from previous years. On one side old opponents of Imam inside and outside the country try to desecrate his image and they are supported by foreign media. On the other side, there are those in State TV and the strong advocates of imprisonments that promote and image of the Imam that advocated oppression. What is your opinion on the goals that these groups seek? And what may this end with?

If the unintended collaboration of the State TV and opponents of Imam in desecration of his image is allowed to continue and is not responded to, it would end with nothing but hatred towards our past. These new images are introduced by constant meddling in the original perception of Imam and the revolution. Those who have directly experienced those years with Imam perceive and image of him that has no proximity to what is being promoted right now. … Continue Reading

Kaleme: A group of veterans from the Islamic Revolution and [Iran-Iraq] war visited the prime minister of Iran under Ayatollah Khomeini [Mr. Mir Hossein Mousavi]. Mousavi made some important statements during this meeting.
Based on Kaleme’s report, Mir Hossein Mousavi began by thanking the veterans, and added: “You veterans of our struggle are committed to principles and values and care deeply about solving our country’s problems [with humility]. You don’t want any ranks and positions for yourselves. You do not pursue any personal interests [as you serve the country], and you don’t want to take advantage of the situation for you own benefits. This is why your opinions and thoughts are important, particularly since you are rooted in the revolution and you miss the enlightened and spiritual atmosphere that the revolution promised us and you are still in pursuit of such an environment.

Independency is a widely known value among Iranians:
They accuse the Green Movement of dependency to west, and yet, they are, themselves, after wiring letters and gaining attention from west:

He expressed great importance on this topic and added: “it is this subject that maintains our Islamic identity. We indeed require introducing Islam in its great form so that we can rescue our people and especially youth generation, otherwise there is no reason to, God forbid, to witness tendency to secularism across the society.”

In a meeting today with a group of religious-nationalist activists, Mousavi said: “To achieve our national interests and a desired society, there is no solution other than insisting on Green Movement. This is a process that needs patience, perseverance and call for great endurance against the hardships and challenges ahead.”

Mousavi expressed that the Green Movement sets and follows up on goals that are originated in the values and demands of the Iranian people. He said: “We must create a coherent civil society using all the available resources in the country.” He then expressed how necessary it is to create “people’s green institutions” in different affairs of the country to push forward for gradual creation of the desired civil society. He added: “What happened in the 25th of Khordaad last year in Tehran with that heavy and kind presence of people together accompanied by an environment of peace, endurance, perseverance and kinship along with their reaction as civil dissidents is a perfect example of a desired civil society.”

 Spreading the goals of green movement in universities

Mirhossein Mousavi in a meeting with members of student committee of Mojahedin of Islamic Revolution party provided an analysis of the current situation in the country. Referring to the great potentials of human resources in universities he continued: “The progress of Green Movement in universities has not been inhibited by suppression. On the contrary the existing situation has made the aspirations of the Green Movement more widespread within the universities. Today the political activism based on rationality is spreading in universities. Practical discussions on strengths and weaknesses [of the movement], in conjunction with contemplation and perseverance in continuing the green path is essential. The reason that the far-flung wave of arrests has not curbed the green movement is manifested in the key slogan shouted by people: “we are numerous.” This slogan is very important. There are three and half million students in universities [across the country] and the majority of them are aware that the road to greatness of [our] nation is in spreading the green waves of awareness and responsibility among the population. The students are children of public and so far have succeeded in raising awareness and informing the public. … Continue Reading

Members of the Isfahan branch of the Institution of Intellectuals, which is part of the national Student Alumni community, met with Abdollah Mo’meni, their recently-released spokesperson. This corresponded with Mousavi and Rahnavard’s recent visit to Mo’meni’s home.

During that visit, Mr. Mousavi expressed great optimism for the future of the opposition movement, revealing that “a new season will come, and [it cannot be stopped].” Responding to an inquiry about what motivated him to stand his ground after the election, Mr. Mousavi referred to reviving the rights of people based on [his] commitment to the fundamentals of ethics, Islam, and humanism. Moreover, he stated the following: “Our moral duty must be to identify what is dark as dark, and what is white as white in a practical way.

In the name of God,

To whom can I speak of my sons’ and daughters’ agony?

Enduring the past nine months and seeing the torment experienced by the sons and daughters of this land has been unbearable for this old man – seeing the nation’s potential melt away in the hands of our incapable rulers; seeing the atrocious treatment of the nation’s righteous and courageous children, both in the streets and in prisons. But the pain has gotten worse lately and I do not know how to handle it or object.

These days, I keep hearing that my dear Badressadat Mofidi, Hengameh Shahidi, Shiva Nazarahari, and many more are under intense pressure [during] interrogation. [I hear that] they are subjected to constant insults with the goal of making them break down and forget about everything they are fighting for. The situation is so unbearable that some of these ladies have wished for death. … Continue Reading

Reformist delegates of the Islamic Revolution Mujahedin from the 6th Parliament visited Mr. Mir Hossein Mousavi.

In this meeting, before Mr. Mousavi, some of the members of this committee spoke. Mr. Mousavi followed by acknowledging the importance of their issues and added: “Our establishment is suffering from problems these days that go beyond street demonstrations. Our issues and problems are much deeper than things like street protests. One of these very problems is that the government thinks overcoming the street protests means solving the issues with dissidents who attended the demonstrations.”

Mr. Mousavi continued: “Everything that should serve as the source of pillars and basis of legitimacy and credibility for a system is decaying. Systems of government usually rely on their hard forces [of security, military, and intelligence] to maintain themselves in the final stages by any means. But we saw that in our country they relied upon too. This is something to pay a great deal of attention to and think about. Issue of ‘Lies’ has become the prominent issue of our day such that people are objecting to it. Unfortunately, lies are told very easily in levels of governance and their propagandas. … Continue Reading

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.
