Wear green for Iran

Wear green sometime this week for Iranian democracy.

The elections in Iran were stolen when current president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won in a landslide despite all indications the race was a closer one between him and oppositional reform candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi.

In fact, looking at the previous election results (also between Ahmadinejad and Mousavi), Mousavi defeated Ahmadinejad in his (Mousavi's) home districts. But this time around, Ahmadinejad won by unbelievable margins, an impressive showing that raises serious doubts about the election's validity.

Clearly there is something wrong here. And everyday Iranians aren't taking it too lightly.

Show your support for democracy. Wear green sometime soon.
