Iran’s Green Movement Crushed

What has been the result of the Iranian protests so far? A more radicalized regime, a strengthened Basij militia, and the increased influence of the Revolutionary Guard—in effect, the regime has purged anyone sympathetic to the Green Movement.

There are dark days ahead for the Iranian people and the world.

“Iran has begun a final push to crush the remaining opposition movement with a campaign of repression. The country’s last two legally registered political parties were disbanded this week after their leaders were put in prison. The government also banned a reformist newspaper and arrested a number of high- profile liberals.”
