Iran Report

Regime deadline approaches. In case you missed my earlier post, a coalition of some 17 Iranian opposition groups delivered an ultimatum (PDF) to the IRI, giving the regime until June 16th to step down. The date corresponds with the date set by the regime for the so-called "elections" (in which just six out of about 1,000 candidates were officially "approved" to run). Some organizations are asking Iranians to stay home with lights darkened in the evenings beginning on June 10 (this Friday) as a gesture of solidarity. The ultimatum also designates June 10 as the starting date for Iran's provisional (post-IRI) government. Read the discussion on the thread at Free Iran.
