For those still confused with as to why foreign intervention is not welcomed, needed or appropriate in Iranian people’s struggle for freedom, Goudarz Eghtedari offers an insightful take in his op-ed piece published today in the Oregonian. It is re-published on the website Eyeranian – another useful resource.

Also here is an interesting weblog from Mojtaba Baakhtari, an Iranian doctor living in London.

Iran has a rich political history, especially on the left and despite the repression of the mullahs and before them the US-backed Shah regime, many organisations have survived. Broad Left has an extensive collection of links to communist, socialist and radical left parties of varying shades of red.

Other political resources can be found here. As for the people on the streets, the Student Movement Co-ordination Committee has their own website now – pay them a visit.
