GVF — The Council for the Coordination of the “Green Path of Hope” has called for nationwide protests on February 20th to commemorate the fallen protesters who lost their lives as a result of state brutality during pro-opposition demonstrations on February 14th.

A statement published by Kaleme, the official website for the Green Movement opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, stated: “While offering our condolences for the martyrdom of two of this country’s oppressed youth during the February 14th demonstrations, and paying homage to the tens of hundreds of Green Movement martyrs, we call on the great nation of Iran to take part in assemblies marking the seventh day of mourning for the martyrdom of these beloved ones on Sunday, February 20th, at 3:00pm [local time] in Tehran and other cities across the country.”

The statement notes that February 20th also coincides with the birthday of the Prophet Mohammad and Imam Jafar Sadegh, the sixth infallible Imam of Shiite Muslims.

The Council for the Coordination of the “Green Path of Hope” continues that a “glorious presence” during the planned protests on February 20th will be a reiteration of the people’s “firm support for the opposition leaders of the Green Movement, Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, to continue their difficult path towards freedom and human dignity” and to “show of solidarity with our Kurdish compatriots in commemorating the these two Shiite and Sunni Iranians whose blood has been spilled in the struggle against religious tyranny.”

On Monday, Iranians across the country took to the streets of the country to express their solidarity with the Tunisian and Egyptian uprisings. Despite the epic turnout, two Iranian students, Saneh Jaleh and Mohammad Mokhtari, were shot dead by Iran’s security forces in the capital of Tehran.
