Wear Green for Iran Friday, June 26th

New Hampster encourages Widdershins readers to wear green tomorrow, Friday, June 26th, in solidarity with the people of Iran, and I’m inviting Katalusis readers to also answer the call:

Wear a ribbon, wear a scarf, wear a green ball cap. Wear green to show the freedom loving people of Iran that We The People of The United States stand in freedom loving support of their struggle against evil.

NH quotes CynthiaBoaz, Ph.D., assistant professor of political science at Sonaoma State University:

“Since 2002, there have emerged a series of democracy movements in Iran, spearheaded primarily – though not exclusively – by university students and women. These people are for the most part technologically and strategically savvy, especially when compared to the hardliners and mullahs that make up the ancient regime in Iran. They have studied the nonviolent struggles in Chile, South Africa and Serbia. They understand the dynamics of civil resistance and the power of simply withdrawing individual complicity in oppression.”

And NH concludes:

Everyone should have a right to speak about their government freely and demonstrate peacefully.
