We now have 34 senators who will vote to approve the Iran deal, allowing President Obama to uphold a veto if need be. Email your representative now so it doesn’t come to that.

Text of Mousavi’s Speech

Posted by Jill Marie Parillo on June 18, 2009

  

On June 18 at 2:50pm, through twitter, an anonymous and reliable tweeter from inside Iran gave us a quick translation of Mousavi’s speech to the people:

 

 

I have come due to concerns of current political and social conditions - to defend the rights of the nation. I have come to improve Iran’s international relations. I have come to tell the world and get back Iran’s pride, our dignity and our future. I have come to bring to Iran a future of freedom, of hope and of fulfillment.

 

I have come to represent the poor, the helpless, and the hungry. I have come to be accountable to you, my people, and to this world. Iran must participate in fair elections. It is a matter of national importance. I have come to you because of the corruption in Iran. 25% inflation means ignorance, thieving and corruption.  

 

Where is the wealth of my nation? What have you done with the $300 billion in the last four years? The next Government of Iran will be chosen by the people. Why do all our young want to leave this country? I know of nobody else who places himself ahead of 20 million other of a nation.

The Association of Combatant Clerics, a reformist clerical body is organizing yet another large rally for Mousavi Saturday from 4-7pm from Enqelab/Revolution Square to Azadi/Liberty Square.
