Roozbeh Farahanipour, one of the leaders of the 1999 student uprising in Iran
and other members and leaders of the Marze-Por-Gohar (MPG) Party are back in
Iran in preparation of demonstrations for the July 9th anniversary; they have
joined with thousands of other Iranian democracy activists and are already
planning for rallies and demonstrations in spite of the ongoing crackdown of IRI
forces and the statements of some IRI factions who are trying to confine the
present movement within the tight Islamic and Constitutional limits, preventing
cries for free elections and a democratic Iran being heard.
The MPG has called upon the students and the people of Iran to participate in
demonstrations at Universities and other locations on July 9th 2009 all across
Iran to commemorate the July 1999 student uprising in Iran in a continuation of
the present historic movement.
The MPG, advocating a secular democratic republic, a leading force in the 1999
uprising and born within the student movement, will continue to stand alongside
the students and the heroic people of Iran, demanding a free election, freedom
in Iran and saying no to the dictatorial regime.
MPG plans to carry live speeches from Iran on July 9th, 2009.
