Iranian Opposition Leaders Issue Call for Demonstrations on the Vote Anniversary
The Council's announcement states that limiting
the activities of reformist organizations and shutting down newspapers work
against the country's "excellence and progress."
Restrictions on reformist groups and media "will cause social divisions and separation of forces connected with the Revolution and loss of social resources."
The Coordination Council urges the government to issue a license for peaceful demonstrations according to the Article 27 of the Constitution.
The Council adds that the "accurate execution of the Constitution and attention to its hidden potentialities" is the only path to resolve the problems in a socially collaborative manner.
In the past ten months, the Islamic Republic has clamped down on reformist organizations and media by banning newspapers and restrictions on political activity of reformist groups.
The government has also repeatedly refused applications for peaceful demonstrations suggested by opposition leaders and reformist organizations.
