Not Only Tehran, But All Iran Will Be Green


"All of us Iranian students, wherever may we belong to, shall take part in turning Iran, captive of the coup d'etat government, Green."

"All of us Iranian students, wherever may we belong to, shall take part in turning Iran, captive of the coup d'etat government, Green."

Blogger Alefba (Alphabet) says the opposition to Mahmud Ahmadinejad, especially students, should use the official occasion of November 4, which marks the anniversary of the occupation of the U.S. Embassy following the 1979 revolution, to demonstrate against the Iranian president:

Not only Tehran but all of Iran shall be green on Aban 13 (November 4). We have an occasion similar to Quds (Jerusalem) Day. I do remember how difficult Quds Day was for the government and its workers.

I know that Ayatollah Khamenei and Mahmud Ahmadinejad, along with their allies, spent the night in great stress and anxiety. Similarly, the following nights would be as difficult for them, the remaining days to Aban 13, more difficult as the student bodies have directly decided to protest against the injustice of the government at the university campuses.

This year, on Aban 13, the Iranian students shall fasten the color green in the universities of this country, wiping away the darkness of the past. They shall prove that a student is the most valuable asset of a country. This segment of society shall prove its strength, such that no dictator may dare to stand against them.

Great days are ahead of us...several similar to Quds Day and Aban 13 though they are limited in number...these days are to be put into their best use.... The student campaigns in their universities should reach the climax as the big day is approaching. We ought to realize the time and invite more and more people for this massive protest gathering.

This is not a normal protest, but it may determine our destiny, so all the country's universities ought to participate. All the universities across the country ought to be Green on this day. Time has come for all the cities of Iran to turn Green; mere sightings in the major cities are more than enough. Time has come for the slogan of "Death to the Dictator" to be heard from all across Iran.

We the provincial students would not let our fellow students in Tehran down. We shall put on green as well and shout slogans of freedom. We shall take responsibility in this event as well. All of us Iranian students, wherever may we belong to, shall take part in turning Iran, captive of the coup d'etat government, Green.

We shall assist in the freedom of our country from dictatorship by the use of intellect and hope. We shall rebuild Iran, build a Green calendar. Long live Iranians!
