Iranian Artists Support Green Movement

This is a statment signed by over 130 Iranian writers, actors, painters, radio and TV artists: The world has witnessed unprecedented violence and suppression against our peaceful, calm and smart people whose mere request is the right to choose their politicians, freedom, justice, free press and true democracy. Instead they were responded with terror, murder, containment and brutal violence by a government whose illegitimacy has been approved by the very anti-human measures they’ve practiced before the eyes of millions of people.
