“Iran’s specific situation will make change slow”

After nearly a year, on February 14th 2011, people’s protesting movement found a fresh breath. Just when, because of the regime’s eradicating methods, arrests, extrajudicial punishments and even the killing of a few protesters in the streets or in detentions, no one was supposed to take to the streets, somehow the regime was caught off guard. This protest was neither more important than other days nor less. But with the second Green movement Charter, arrest and disappearance of two of the presidential candidates and considering the faith of a movement that will be probably decided in the streets, the approach had to be combined with analysis and attention and avoiding to lose time. Is this close? In fact, reform or change? Which one is achievable? In this interview tonight, Ardavan Roozbeh discusses the issue with Seraj Mirdamadi, journalist in Paris.

They were ministers, military commanders, intelligence and security chiefs, etc. They had very little executive experience, but they were determined to defend and preserve the newly-created Islamic system by any means possible, including through the use of extreme violence.

“Kurdistan is alive, on Sunday, we will be on strike”

The “Coordinator Committee of protests for the murder of Sane Jaleh” is a committee composed of Kurdish journalists and civil rights activists that recently announced its existence by making its first statement on the issue of the murder of the young Kurdish on the February 14th during a protest in Tehran. This committee in its second statement also supported the protest of people for the murder of ”Sane Jaleh” and ”Mohamad Mokhtari” on the 14th of February and asked the people to go on a strike in Kurdistan on Sunday February the 20th. ”Shahabaldin Sheikhi”, a member of the committee considers the rulers behavior regarding the two youngsters killed during the protests as a desecration, a form of ”identity theft” and ”martyr burglary”. He considers the strike in Kurdistan as a less costly approach to protest, although he does not deny the possibility of severe confrontations.
