'Our Silence Is The Answer To Your Violence'


Iran has severely restricted the ability of foreign media to report from Tehran, necessitating a greater reliance on the reports of citizen journalists and impassioned listeners. While every effort has been made to do so, RFE/RL cannot vouch for the accuracy or authenticity of user-generated content, which appears below in orange type.

E-mails and voicemails sent to Radio Farda on June 24:

My statements for Mr. Ahmadinejad: Is the presidential power so very important for you, Mr. Ahmadinejad, that it makes you point guns at your fellow citizen, your brother and your sister, and spill their blood on the streets? Trust me; these powers have never truly belonged to someone. What are you going to do when you are called to answer before God?

People have neither felt threatened, nor cooled down. All they need is the renewal of their spirits.
The crowd was directed to the south of Baharestan Square. The situation at Baharestan Square is really terrible. Gunfire was heard...
A girl was shot at Baharestan Square.
The violence at Baharestan Square is at its peak and people are being harshly beaten up. To avoid any further congestion of the crowd, all the trains to Baharestan have been stopped.
The evident and confirmed piece of news is: The killer of our martyred sister, Neda Sultani is Mr. Mohammad Reza Eskandari, the agriculture minister of Ahmadinejad. Dear friends, please distribute this news as soon as you can, and deliver it to the news agencies.

Esfandyar from Tehran: The families of the arrestees of the recent days' protests are now outside the Enghelab court, sitting in the middle of Moalem Street; blocking it and protesting. In the hope of freedom for their loved ones.

I wanted to announce that almost 45 members of the Revolutionary Guard forces, who come from the Shahid Beheshti camp, were not willing to take to the streets and were hence taken to the 66 Sepah Detention Center. This is a clear piece of news, as my colleagues have informed me.

I voted for Ahmadinejad, but seeing this behavior of his, I am really regretting it. My opinion has changed.

**

As an Iranian, I want to say that I used to like Mr. Ahmadinejad very much and I used to think that at least he is the only one who is standing up to the foreigners. I can now see that he has also turned against his countrymen. This man has some serious issues. He has trouble with both foreign and domestic affairs.

The proud and noble people of Iran,
With greetings,
It is respectfully brought to the notice of all the patriotic and proud people of Iran that all are going to demonstrate their protest against the election results at 2200 hours sharp, By the Allahu Akbar slogan.

Greetings to you and your viewers,
I wanted to let all those who have sold their consciences to the government acknowledge that the more they kill of us, the stronger our belief in the righteousness of our path would become.
You have martyred Neda Agha Sultan in the cruelest way possible, but you are going to see what people will have to say in response to the government, tomorrow, Thursday.
Our silence along with our presence will be the answer to your violence.
