“Every banned weblog should be replaced by tens of weblogs for defending the people’s rights.” These are the words of Iranian opposition leader Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who called on supporters of the Green Movement to counter the attacks against freedom of press in Iran. Speaking in a meeting with the student committee of reformist organization Mojahedin of Islamic Revolution, Mousavi repeated that the Green Movement is “limitless” and it should “open numerous new windows” for every blocked “opening.” The former prime minister maintained that the Green Movement should be defined in such a manner that “includes every one of the seventy million people of the country, even our opponents.”
Mousavi emphasized “freedom and justice” as two key words in the Green Movement: “Freedom and justice are inseparable and those who are under economic pressure are also in greater risk of losing their basic liberties.”
He added: “Greatness of this movement does not rise from a limited group of geniuses; the greatness of this movement rises from the activities of numerous people who through their overt or covert activities, to the very limits of their ability, support the movement to achieve its end.”
