In Iran i mezzi di comunicazione tradizionali sono stati oscurati, le linee telefoniche bloccate e Cnn e Bbc sono state bloccate mentre riprendevano gli incidenti.Qui sono riportati commenti diretti dei cittadini iraniani:
Shirin Behzadi, 45, university professor, on Enghelab Square yesterday morning: "It's very surprising that the whole world is silent now. I don't understand why the international community just ignores what's happening right now in Tehran. Why don't they react and help hopeless Iranians? I'm quite confused why even the United States has not paid enough attention to the obvious vote fraud in Iran. I'm now thinking maybe the world's big powers like Ahmadinejad. We are losing our semi-democracy in Iran. We had a very poor democracy and now we are losing everything we had. Why doesn't the UN help Iranians? Everybody in the world is just concerned about the nuclear issue in Iran. Why is the world silent now when Iran is in turmoil and enduring a semi-coup?
Non so ben spiegarmi il silenzio dei paesi occidentali, Bernard-Henri Lévy avanza dei paragoni con Solidarnosc e i dissidenti sovietici.
