Michael Totten: An Open Letter to the People of Iran
Iranian students cancel protests in fear of a "Tiananmen-like massacre.":
"We received information that the other side wanted to heavily confront it and we didn't want to harm the movement and pay this heavy price."
[Today] is July 9...the day that Iranians will show what they really want, & will prove that they're not a kind of people who leave alone the students & the young guys who are spending they life in prisons, just because they wanted freedom for all Iranians. I really hope that they do it well & I myself will try my best to do whatever I can as a young girl, we must also encourage each other; that's very importantů --Iranian Girl
