THEY did not wear masks...  or Burkahs

Iranian Green Movement

The Iranian Green Movement refers to a political movement that arose after the 2009 Iranian presidential election, in which protesters demanded the removal of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from office. Green was initially used as the symbol of Mir Hossein Mousavi's campaign, but after the election it became the symbol of unity and hope for those asking for annulment of what they regarded as a fraudulent election. Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi are recognized as political leaders of the Green Movement.[1] Hossein-Ali Montazeri was also mentioned as spiritual leader of the movement.[2]

The Green Movement protests were a major event in Iran's modern political history and observers claimed that protests were the largest since the Iranian Revolution of 1978-1979

They who did not wear masks were not in high-tech surveillance areas with FBI and Others ready to hunt down participants.

That's the problem, while those with the mask are (apparently) afraid of what might happen to them those on the photos zorgon posted were not afraid of the armed men that were in front of them.

To me, wearing a mask is a sign of either cowardice, being a "fashion follower" or just a slightly different kind of sheep.

When one person uses it, yes, when dozens use it on a demonstration, I don't think so.

And some of Us have a message and the mask appeals to the revolutionaries, the Ones I am trying to reach, and also hides My one buck tooth so it will not be a focus.  These are the reasons *I* used the mask.  I have NO fear, have no interest in "fashion," and surely am not any kind of sheep.

Yea, what Amy said. I've noticed the mask helps in capturing public attention, it makes heads turn where otherwise there may have been no head turning previously.

But if that makes me a 'sheep', then I stand guilty as charged.
After all - we are all lambs for the slaughter...
I'd just like to think of it as a marketing tool, to sell an idea  - or many idea's.

I think the masks are extremely amusing.  I agree with the sentiment that your true face can have more power if the issue is one of conscience and masks allow groups to be infiltrated and manipulated easily.

Whats wrong with being a black sheep. :P

I don't think it appeals to the revolutionaries, only to the "couch revolutionaries", those that talk a lot and do nothing.

Also, I think that to avoid your one buck tooth from being a focus you only needed to have some image(s) on screen, no mask necessary, unless it's just a marketing ploy, something I despise.

PS: how many real revolutionaries do you know?

If that's the case then it's just a question of marketing, and the people that turn their heads do just that, nothing more, so it just works as an amusement for the masses.

Greetings:
It did not surprise me in the least that the message
was overlooked by those who couldn't understand it.
   :P

OR CHOSE NOT TO
IN ORDER TO DERAIL THE DISCUSSION










Our mission is to make a positive difference in our communities.

It may not be possible to turn the world into a perfect place,
but we encourage people to make the positive changes they want to see happen in their communities.

Legal protests are our First Amendment right,
and they can be used to peacefully spread important messages about
what is going on in the world, country, state, city or even neighborhood.

We also encourage people to take the right steps to set uP
charity drives and other projects to help the less fortunate around them.

Positive changes do not happen overnight, but they can
happen gradually when people work together toward a common goal.
