'There Is Nothing Left For Us But To Die'


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, voicemails, and SMSs sent to Radio Farda on June 26:

Please let everyone know that the intelligence officials are sending friend requests on Facebook using fake names and photos, even pretending to be a Musavi supporter, in order to identify all. Do not accept any friend requests unless you know the person, as you might get yourself and many others in trouble.

I offer my condolences to all the family members of my fellow nationals, martyrs. Down with this “Islamic government." Long live Iran, freedom, and democracy.

There should be international sanctions against Iran as punishment for the jamming. The so-called Islamic republic’s satellites should be jammed and punishment should be inflicted on them for the violation of international rights. Also, the approval of sanctions on countries like China and Russia who supply software and hardware and equipment to Tehran are in order.

**

The television broadcasts of Radio Farda and Voice of America ought to be transmitted by UHF satellite to Iran.
Teletexts should be sent to deliver information from the Internet and the news to Iran.
Voice of America broadcasts should become round the clock.
Satellite Internet should be distributed in Iran.
The jamming centers should be indentified and people ought to be informed about them.
All in all, Iranian television, satellite, and Internet ought to run without the vigilance of the government.

The only way to solve the crisis in Iran and convince people to step back from the streets is to annul the election results.

They are literally killing us. The Iranian broadcasting service is constantly blabbering about the enemy, all day long. Who is the real enemy of the Iranian nation? No one but Khamenei, by God. There is nothing left for us but to die.

It's Habeeb, from southern Iran. I want to tell the enemy that there is no reason for them to be glad. While not all of them are Iranians, the protests are the private concern of Iran and still the people are ready to tear the world apart if our beloved leader asks them to do so. There absolutely is no reason for you to celebrate.
