Turmoil in Tehran

Mousavi: Keep Protesting

The international media’s attention may be turning elsewhere, but Mir Hossein Mousavi is keeping up his fight in Iran: “Iran's opposition leader flagrantly courted arrest today by labelling President Ahmadinejad's government "illegitimate" one day after the regime said it would tolerate no further challenges to the election result,” reports The Times of London. "It's our historic responsibility to continue our complaint and make efforts not to give up the rights of the people,” Mousavi said in a statement posted on his website. He criticized the government for its treatment of university protests. "Blood was spilled and the youth were beaten," Mousavi wrote.
