A top advisor to Iranian opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, has said that after the 12th of June protests, anti-government demonstrations will not be held in silence.
In a statement published on Tuesday, the Coordination Council of the Green Path of Hope, the Green Movement’s highest decision-making body, called for “silent” protests on 12 June to mark the second anniversary of the 2009 presidential election.
The race was overshadowed by widespread vote rigging and unprecedented crackdown on protesters questioning the election outcome.
In a recent interview with the Persian service of Germany’s international broadcaster Deutsche Welle, Ardeshir Amir-Arjomand, a senior advisor to 2009 presidential candidate and Green Movement leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, said the Iranian month of Khordad (22 May – 22 June) “will mark the beginning of a series of actions. The march on 12 June is one of them, and it will not be the last. The [different] social networks must express their viewpoints until a decision is made for 13 and 14 June and perhaps later days in Khordad too.”
