Our path is the peaceful path of civic movement and abiding to the criteria and bases that our nation has had and has expressed in its great revolution." Khatami also referred to the suffocating atmosphere that the government has imposed on the people, especially the academia and students, and added that the oppression that has been imposed on professors and students is not acceptable for the universities of the Islamic Republic.

The statement in part reads: "Seducers are those who step on the constitution. Seducers are those who obliterate justice. Seducers are those who destroy people's basic rights. Seducers are those who don't want the parliament to be on top of affairs. Seducers are those who have made telling lies their method of achieving their goals and have sacrificed ethics for gaining power.
