Mousavi: “We refuse to stand beside oppression”
23 Apr 2010
Jaras website reports that speaking for a group of national-religious activists, Mir-Hossein Mousavi has said he wants to secure the continuation of the protest movement in Iran: “We refuse to stand beside oppression and the oppressor. We stand with the oppressed and the Movement’s strategy is tolerance and dialogue. This long and difficult path has to be pushed forward through dialogue and exchange.” He called for a careful choice of inclusive slogans that could expand the Green Movement’s range.
Mousavi maintained that the vast participation of people in the June 15th street demonstrations against the election outcome was a “kind and collaborative presence that was filled with tolerance, patience, cooperation and the civil action of protesters; an exemplary model for a desirable society.”
The former president of Iran added: “We must make more efforts to invite and absorb the people who are in the grey areas of this equation; citizens who are not with the Green Movement but neither are in agreement or in step with those in power.” Mousavi condemned all forms of violence in the name of religion: “We support merciful readings of religion that advocate the maximum tolerance with all opinions and points of view.”
