The two main opposition leaders in Iran called on their supporters on Saturday to take part in a demonstration on Feb. 11, the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Mir Hussein Moussavi and Mehdi Karroubi, the opposition leaders, urged supporters to participate in the rally next month, the opposition Jaras Web site reported. Protesters have hijacked public events to stage antigovernment rallies since the disputed June 12 election. (…)
The Feb. 11 protest would be the first rally since Dec. 27.
A senior Revolutionary Guards commander, Hussein Hamedani, warned that the force would not “allow the Green Movement to make an appearance” during the annual rally, the ISNA student news agency reported.
