Protestors march in Iran for those killed after opposition to presidential election.
Wired PR News – Thousands of protestors rallied in Tehran on Thursday and mourned the loss of individuals killed following protests of the recent presidential election. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the march was said to be the fourth to take place this week after controversy surrounded the re-election of Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
As noted in the report, many have alleged vote rigging by the government and are requesting a recount or that the election be redone. A graduate of engineering is quoted by the AP as stating of what many have termed a revolution in Iran, “I don’t think everyone wants to end the Islamic Republic because many people in Iran are very religious. So I think this current movement should keep Islam in it to maintain support. Unity is important.”
