"Iranian Republic": The New Chant

People Chanting: "Iranian Republic, Independence, Freedom" Tehran. 30 July 2009

Protesters today for the first time chanted "Iranian Republic, Independence, Freedom" ("Jomhouri Irani, Esteghlal, Azadi". The significance is the variation of the first part in the chant, "Iranian Republic", replacing the familiar "Islamic Republic" part in now-famous "Islamic Republic, Independence, Freedom" chant sung during the 1979 revolution.

this proves that a lot of these protesters are in sync with Mousavi/Karoubi because both are strong beleivers in Islamic republic and openly oppose any notions of taking out the islamic or the republic aspects of their goal state!

another hypocrisy that backstabs the green movement!
