Original: www.youtube.com On June 12, 2011, to mark two years since Iran’s disputed election, United4Iran and Move4Iran coordinated a flash mob in a Paris metro station to draw attention to the ongoing human rights abuses Iran’s citizens continue to face. The flashmob’s intent was to highlight sustained international support for the Iranian people and to encourage individuals worldwide, who are lucky enough to be afforded basic freedoms, to recommit support for Iran’s civil rights movement. The Islamic Republic of Iran’s repression may have seemingly forced Iran’s civil society movement underground, it remains active. During the silent flashmob, participants wore green and froze, while silently holding the peace/victory sign (“V”) — both of which are symbols of Iran’s civil society movement. The flashmob also showed sustained support for the movement in Iran. The flashmob concluded with everyone unfreezing and raising their “V”s. The flashmob quietly echoed the fact that despite Iran’s civil society seemingly forced into silence, the movement continues.as well as to remind the audience of the risks Iranian face daily in exercising basic human rights and the total impossibility of being able to even organize a silent demonstration like the Paris flashmob. We encourage all interested organizations and individuals to coordinate similar flashmobs in their own cities — if you need ideas or suggestions, please feel free to e-mail them at info@united4iran.org.
