The struggle for freedom in Iran is one that can go forward if people around the world unite around the cause of human rights and speak out against theocracies and dictatorships. Let's not just leave it up to the governments. We have a unique opportunity, through the lightning speed of the internet, to wage support for non-violent struggles all over the world.

  1. I have done a very brief post, and referred readers to your blog. You say it so much better than I.

    I don't know why I could not do much of the text in green. Blogger does not cooperate.

  2. The corn will be, "Knee high by the fourth of July". Very green indeed around here, too.

    As for Iran, yes, I support the protesters. Too bad the news media here in America didn't support Americans that protested during the Bush administration and its policies, or those that stood for peace during the RNC. But they seem to want to support the protesters in Iran and not their government. All to sell another war? Perhaps.

    Peace.

  5. Our voices, our protests against so much violence, so much blind fundamentatlism, I wonder if it'll be enough. But it's better than remaining silent. This president is a shame for Iranian people. Have you ever heard his talks ? So much hate in it that appears nowadays in his acts.

  7. Thank you so much for having joined us yesterday. I see you already know Amir has been set free. That made my day! But so many others are still in prison...

  8. Connections like the ones you're making here are very important. I'm afraid of any moves this country makes in the support of a population of another country since we've already seen enough of the way our leaders like to export 'democracy'.
