راهپيمايي سكوت

the protests…

hundreds of thousands – possibly millions…

“All books about revolutions begin with a chapter that describes the decay of tottering authority or the misery and sufferings of the people. They should begin with a psychological chapter, one that shows how a harassed and terrified man suddenly breaks his terror, stops being afraid. This unusual process, sometimes accomplished in an instant, like a shock or lustration, demands illuminating. Man gets rid of fear and feels free. Without that there would be no revolution…”

– Ryszard Kapuscinski, in Iran during the 1979 revolution.

    Thanks for including the link to "Ask an Iranian Part I." It very simply explained the situation and brought me quickly up to speed. I even linked it on my own blog. Thanks again!
