Resilience In Iran



In a blog called Neo-Resistance, an Iranian woman named Naj offers tales of "resilience." Today, she calls on people to fly green balloons in protest of the violence and in support of Mousavi; without access to balloons, she says, garbage bags will do. 

Today, those who are not YET intimidated, raided, arrested and threatened will fly green balloons in the sky. (All the above has happened to my loved  ones ...)


FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
