First Couple of Iran’s Opposition Post Video Messages for Persian New YearBy ROBERT MACKEY, March 18, 2010
A message to the Iranian people from the opposition leader Mir Hussein Moussavi, posted online to mark the Persian New Year.
The New Year is the year of resistance on these rightful and legal demands, and we do not have the right to give up and back off from these demands as that would be a betrayal to the nation, Islam and the blood of the martyrs. We have achieved this Constitution from the waves of the bloods of many martyrs, and we cannot lose that easily and we all should return to that.
In this New Year we want to have freedom in our country again. We want the rule of law which one can say that at least it has been 200 or 300 years that human had tried to achieve it would dominate our country. We want the fraud and rumors be eliminated and discrimination in any form, could it be due to financial, class, economical, cultural or women’s affairs would be eliminated.
Here is Ms. Rahnazad’s video message:
