Reach out to the stars…

The other day, it was shocking and very sad to hear a dear old friend passed away, the most tragic was that it took almost three months for me to hear it from a third party and the fact that  I missed my opportunity to connect with him when I could more often is very painful to bear. Such is the current state of affairs in life, we now have less and less times for each other. Such was the case even before that faithgul moment when Neda became martyr, a symbol for freedom.

Every seconds robbed off us for one thing or another. There is often no time for deeper contemplation, less and less room for our fellow beings. For now I have to neglect and sacrifice many things, for we are fighters in this cause.  As Neda’s we must sacrifice friends, family and our own lives for Freedom. For we have no choice but to fight with our voices of silence and bear hands chained in gallows of dictators. While we are carrying on with daily chores, we also  lose focus on whats  important in life. The tendency is to give our highest priority to what we call work. Our working life is like running on a treadmill, heading to an elusive destinations an imaginary oasis. We falsley  think  finally with riches earned,it  will be a happiness abound.

We need to retain our natural  positive attitude in life as  something to be nurtured, practiced and retained  from an early age. Once negativity states sets in, we find ourself on a down hill spiral towards destination misery.

Children are full of joy, their outlook on life is of curiosity and amazement. It is a perspective that get beaten out of us at an early age, it is done by the brand “necessities of life”. Precisely  what we need to be weary of more than anything.

Question remains, Why are we in such a quagmire? And is it really that necessary – The costs of luxuries granted to a few, is becoming too expensive to bear for us all. Why make life unbearable to so many, we live in a universe with infinite riches and resources.

Current Economic system perpetuates an unnecessary recurring cycle of misery, famine, war  and continues to pollute our environment. The heavy burden on citizens to put themselves through extreme harsh hood in order to meet the set goals of perceived success, sold to them by truck loads through all medias is misguided.

We must fight for our rights, to rich out to  the stars, and  this time we literally need to actually do this. We must set our goals towards finding resources to feed, house and educate every citizen to the highest standard possible. Respect one another and our environment. Is it really too much to ask?

  • I wish I was not given (this cursed) Supreme Leader title in the first place.
  • I wish before this green movements started, I had died, so I would not turn into such a disgrace.
  • I wish that all knowledgeable Iranians where like my beloved pea brained Ahmadinejad .
  • I wish I had broken my legs after the election accidentally, so I wouldn’t have to endure the friday sermon which  inflamed people even more to protest with all that gibberish I uttered from sheer stupidity.
  • I wish that I had got rid of Mosavi,Karubi and Khatami at the time of  infamous  mass extermination “Serial Killings”affair when I did without any one watching over it.
  • I wish people of Iran trusted me and believed a single word I said, very least showed a little respect to me supposedly a Supreme Leader after all.

Ehsan Fattahian another hero for Sea of Green murdered by Islamic Republic

Ehsan

Ehsan Fatahian another Sea of Green hero for Freedom

Ehsan
Today the discredited regime added another page to their tainted history, the last letter of Ehsan is an address to all humanity. His last words reverberates through out pointing out the gross injustices that are being perpetrated by a cruel, inhuman and barbaric regime. IRI today is a spot of shame for humanity in 21st Century at odds with reality of what people of Iran want and What the world expects or can allow as minimum standard of governance internationally.
It punishes and kills with impunity. However brave and nobel people of Iran have risen. They are saying with resolute they want to rid of this regime and have democracy and Free Iran. This is essential for regional and global peace to remove a global instrument and sponsor of terror.

To put it simply this illegitimate and barbaric regime must be consigned to the dustbin of history sooner the better. As Ehsan said for sea of green “ every death is the beginning of a new life.”

Lets recall Ehsans words from his last letter

when punishment is the answer for those who seek freedom and justice, how can one fear his fate? Those of “us” who have been sentenced to death by “them” are only guilty of seeking an opening to a better and fair world. Are “they” also aware of their deeds?

They cannot see anything but their own illegitimate objectives, even when it is the question of a person’s right to life – the most basic of all human rights. How pointless is it to expect them to respect international treaties when they don’t even respect their own laws?

My death and the deaths of thousands of others like me will not cure the pain; they will only add to the flames of this fire. There is no doubt that every death is the beginning of a new life.

The Execution of Ehsan Fattahian

Fattahian was sentenced to death on Moharebeh (enmity with God) charges. Ehsan was not allowed to call or have a last visit with his family before his execution. Reports from Sanandaj prison suggest that Ehsan refused to let the guards remove the stool on which he stood and stepped off the stool of his own volition. The HRA reporter says that this will be the last image those present will remember from a man who is gone forever.

Ehsan Fattahian was arrested in July 2008 and spent the first three months of his detention in solitary confinement. He was repeatedly subjected to physical and psychological torture.

Another Green Day Victory for Sea of Green

4th November/13Aban  a significant date for the regime propaganda machine once more was turned to another Green Day, this is gradually becoming a norm, despite all the restrictions dictator regime imposes on the people, Sea of Green finds and has worked out innovative means of undermining the regime at every opportunity.
Regime is clearly no longer able to run the show, it cannot muster enough populist support for its credibility, all it can do is to flex its military mussels at the very people it has been drafted up to protect. Every arrest and beating is another dark mark on its already well tainted history of shame and further damages its reputation.
After 30 years regime has nothing positive to show for it, it is reported that with an average monthly income of $200 dollars whilst average household expense is around $800 to live on. Most of the populace living on or below the breadline. Crime, prostitution and narcotic additions rages at highest in its entire history.
Countries notion globally has wrongly changed from a nation of peace maker/loving to an international sponsors of terror. The catalog of shame goes on.
Sea of Green is here to stay, Our noble and peace loving Iranians of all sections of society, religions, political spectrum and interest are all united for one cause. They demand a democratic FREE IRAN. Today we cannot miss Green signs of hope erected all around us.
