As reported on BBC the Iranians have endured the oppression for a long time. And especially within the last two years they have had enough. They have held onto hope for so long and after the disastrous election results, nothing can stop them from spilling into the streets and universities of Iran to PROTEST!!! The current protests has been unprecedented especially for an Islamic Republic like Iran. The bottom line is - the people of Iran want DEMOCRACY!!! and they are fighting PEACEFULLY ON THE STREETS to gain it.
Yes, there were some burning and stuff but it is known that these are just hooligans doing it. Mousavi, the opposition leader has been calling for PEACEFUL RESISTANCE, because they know the government is trying very hard to provoke the protesters into RIOTING so they can discredit their fight for democracy and also have an excuse to use their militia to go after these demonstrators, like they did at some universities' dormitories.
As we read Voreqe's account to the cane farmers about not relying on the EU funds and other news, we think sooner rather than later something will have to give from the people. Two years is a long time to wait for UNPRODUCTIVITY. And to think we have to wait for the next five years - that SHOULD BE UNACCEPTABLE.
Our very own BLUE SILENT MARCH/PROTEST SHOULD BEGIN SOON.
Just like the Iranians started their own internet revolution to send out messages for PEACEFUL GATHERING, we should too. And if their international soccer stars can bring attention to their suffering and their peaceful mission by wearing green wristbands (the colour of the opposition) at the FIFA qualifying game vs Korea on Wednesday June 17 2009, our international players who support freedom should try it too. But ever since 5/12 there has been a lack of support from these professionals in the playing arena.
Praying and fasting is a wonderful thing, but divine intervention will not fall from Heaven like manna, we also have to take action! The walls of Jericho fell because God told the Israelites to march around the city once a day for six days, following the Ark. On the seventh day, He had them go around seven times.
Then He had them blow their horns and shout. And the walls of Jericho fell down. The Israelites captured the city because they obeyed God.
Let the Blue Silent March begin so we regain our promised "Milk and Honey"!
