Kaleme website, the site connected with Iranian opposition leader, Mir Hossein Mousavi, published its first internet newspaper on September 23, 2010.


Kaleme writes: "People of Iran do not have media outlets and their share of the vast government budget for the media is just slander, lies and idolatry. The people have the right to know, and if everyone knows then all factions will benefit by it."

Kaleme then urges all "worker in the factories, students in schools and universities, office workers in offices, teachers in classes and neighbours in the community" to print the newspaper and disseminate it amongst everyone.

Last year, the daily, Kaleme Sabz (Green Word) was published by Mir Hossein Mousavi, the disputing candidate of the 2009 presidential elections. In July of 2009, security forces attacked the office of this newspaper, arrested the employees and the journalists, and released them after some days.

Kaleme Sabz was henceforth banned from publication.

Tens of newspapers and publications have been banned in the past year in Iran in order to quell protests to the alleged fraud in the 2009 elections and the governments' violent treatment of protesters.
