Blogger Arash57 says that Iran's reformists must show that they are finished accepting the government's abuse:

You see it was all our fault.

We endured for 30 years, they mistreated us and we kept quiet -- now there is a situation where we united. We always thought of others as culprits, Guadeloupe, British people, Arabs from Iraq, everybody except for ourselves. Now that we are united, did you see how the whole world has reacted, they were waiting for us to show a little move and that's it.

[U.S. President Barack] Obama has seen the photo of our Neda. FBI police showed the way to deal with tear gas. [Filmmaker Mohsen] Makhmalbaf sat in at the European Union. Iranians living in foreign countries are out on the street demonstrating their opposition. Singers sang for us. Why did all that happen?

That was for us, because we made an attempt, everything depends on us now. If we stop, everyone will stop. Let's show the world on the 40th day of Neda's killing that we are still alive, we are still green. What do you say?
