Iranian Student Movement Day Of Protest

In commemoration of the second anniversary of the student uprising in Iran, Iranian students around the world have announced a day of protest for Saturday, July 9. The announcement is available HERE. Since it is frequently difficult to access this page because of the traffic coming to their server from around the world, we have also posted the announcement at ADMC. It is available from a link on our front page at American Daughter Media Center.

Here is an excerpt:

This year the anniversary of the July '99 student uprising coincides with the regime's newly elected president Ahmadinejad. The final result of this election proved to be a complete disaster for the Islamic regime as a mere 17 million out of 47 million eligible voters actually voted for the new president.

Since the July 1999 student uprising in Tehran University, voters' turnout for presidential elections have continuously decreased significantly, not to mention the absolute disregard for parliamentary and city council elections. The July 9th student demonstrations in actuality were the total separation of the students from the so-called reformist movement, which proved to be an absolute failure. It has become long manifested that the problem does not lie with the elected candidates, however with the entire framework of the Islamic Republic. Parliamentary or presidential elections hold absolutely no significance as the monopoly of powers rests within the Guardian Council, the Expediency Council, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards, the Assembly of Experts, and the Supreme Leader.

Noble People and of Iran, the Islamic Republic has created a corrupt wasteland in our beloved Iran....
