BREAKING NEWS- Statement by the Green Students of Ahvaz University regarding protests on June 12th (22nd Khordad) – “We Will Stand Firm with President Mousavi”!

Sunday June 6th, 2010, Khordad 16th, 1389

“On behalf of the Green students at Ahvaz University we would like to announce that regardless of the expulsions from school and the many visits to the disciplinary committee of the university last year, we remain as Green as ever and there should be no doubt what so ever, that this June 12th, 22nd of Khordad we will come to the streets once again to stand with our legitimate president Mr. Mousavi, with all Iranians and all our compatriots in the city of Ahvaz.”

According to Daneshjoo News , the Green students at Ahvaz University have issued a statement in which they invite all Iranians to protest the anniversary of last years rigged elections.

The content of this statement is as follows:

In the name of the most loving,

To our dear Green friends and supporters,

A year has passed since you began this journey in which you worked so tirelessly. A year in which so much happened that it would be impossible for any camera to adequately capture the scenes. The events of last year turned our hopes for change into disappointment; leaving us with no other choice but to stand firm against the oppressors until the day when victory is finally ours.

On behalf of the Green students at Ahvaz University we would like to announce that regardless of the expulsions from school and the many visits to the disciplinary committee of the university last year, we remain as Green as ever and there should be no doubt what so ever, that this June 12th, 22nd of Khordad we will come to the streets once again to stand with our legitimate president Mr. Mousavi, with all Iranians and all our compatriots in the city of Ahvaz.

Last year more than 100 students at Ahvaz University were summoned to the disciplinary committee in the eve of the 16 of Azar with a goal to suppress our movement. This event was followed by more expulsions and summons to the disciplinary committee of students on the 13th of Aban. Regardless of all the pressure, Ahvaz University remains alive.

We will never forget those days. If last year our only wish was to reclaim our votes, this year, with all that we have witnessed, we feel an even heavier burden on our shoulders. So many martyrs and prisoners were sacrificed for our cause; so many students were expelled from university. What did they demand except to reclaim their vote? Was it right to respond to these questions with bullets by the ruling power? Was this the Alavi Justice they so proudly spoke of?

We will continue to roar that the Green students at Ahvaz University are awake; that we stand firm and refuse to allow the coup government to achieve its goals. We will not allow our country to be sacrificed for the sake of lust and the power games by agents of this illegitimate government.

We therefore ask our fathers and mothers to stand with us this June 12th, 22nd of Khordad. Do not abandon your children; stand with us so that together we can fight for our country and our lost rights.

History is in the makings and what will be remembered most, is our current perseverance and resilience.

The Green Students at Ahvaz University.

    Solidarity from Germany, The day will come and Iran is free. The hole Iran is a prison for journalists, for students, woman without rights, the people without rights. Freedom for all political prisoners.
