In the interview, and in response to the question by the La Vanguardia reporter
who asked whether Iran's green movement was dead, she replied, "I do not think
so! Protests, resentment and discontent continue and not only have they not
diminished, but on the contrary have even become deeper, even though people have
gone from the streets to their houses. This is because people are not allowed to
massively express their dissatisfaction."
Addressing the repression against the green movement and the media censorship in Iran she said, "The media is under government control. They cannot even mention the names of the leaders of the reformers such as Mousavi, Karoubi or Khatami and they cannot publish my political comments. It may appear that people have calmed down, but this is merely the fašade for the greater pressures that they face."
Speaking about the conflict between her father and Ahmadinejad's administration,
she said, "Authorities view my father as a barrier to their goals. If they
remove him, this will lead to an even faster destruction of the state. Any
project that is inaugurated today has its roots in my father's administration. "
Faezeh also spoke about the attack on her offices and the monitoring of her personal telephone calls and emails by the government and said current conditions in the country amounted to dictatorship and despotism, adding, "Women too are being suppressed in the same way that government critics and dissidents are."
In conclusion, speaking about the wide rift between the people and the regime she said, "One has to consider that Iran is a conservative society and while it may appear that we have intellectuals in the capital and particularly the northern districts of Tehran, we are in reality have a conservative society, and therefore it is difficult to convince them to change some traditional laws. One cannot say that the government alone is responsible for everything."
Last year on May 29, security forces raided the Faezeh office at the Islamic Federation of Women's Sports and confiscated the documents and property there, while sealing off the offices.
At that time, Parleman news website had reported, "these individuals [security agents raiding her office] even helped themselves to the orange juice and drinks in her office and took measures to move the safes around and breaking locks without taking their contents while damaging fans, tea samovars, messing up other items in the house and only took away an obsolete computer monitor and two decorative boxes."
