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.

    What now, after the Supreme Court stay?
    The Supreme Court in February 2016 issued a "stay," or a temporary suspension, of the Clean Power Plan while a lower court reviews this legal challenge. This situation raises many questions.
