These women have had it with the Mullah run thugocracy called the Islamic Republic of Iran
The Swedish government refuses to meet with these brave women
Standing up for freedom and democracy, Neda, friends and colleagues stand with their signs and pictures, helping to spread the word in the streets of Stockholm about what’s really happening inside their country of Iran. What’s as depressing as the photos in their protest display, is the fact that the Swedish government has refused to meet with these women, or anyone else that have been demonstrating their support for the freedom fighters risking their lives in the streets of Iran.
This particular group of ex-pat Iranians have placed their signs just outside the Swedish King’s palace which sits at the entrance to the old city of Stockholm, as well as being just across the short bridge from the Swedish House of Parliament. They have been there since the beginning of the protests in Iran, and have no plan of leaving soon.
One of the women in the group, pictured in the center, stated what the Tundra Tabloids had been saying that there are a host of competing voices currently protesting against the Islamic regime. She also stated that many who have taken to the streets are not protesting in favor of a “softer Islam” to replace the highly corrupt religious regime, but to replace it with a secular government ruled by civilian law, which means no to shariah, or Islamic law.
They have had it up to their eyeballs with Islam, and these particular protesters are against it entirely, they are also anti-Communist, pro-Western, pro-Israel and philo-Semitic. They view Israel as a part of the civilized West and have contempt for Western politicians, feminists, and for a host of other “humanitarian stooges” who prostrate themselves before the “Palestinian cause”. Saying that “the West has wasted enough money on them already”. They see in the Palestinians (Fakestinians) the same totalitarianism displayed in Iran, Lebanon (Hezbollah) and Al-Qaida.
Here is the text of the letter they sent to the current head of the Swedish government, PM Fredrik Reinfeld. It’s a letter that spells out the protesters demands. Also noteworthy, is the fact that they (these women) have realized that the color of green is being misunderstood outside of Iran, as being sympathetic towards Islam, Neda and others stated that that’s not the case, it just signifies change and freedom. They said in retrospect, they should have used something else. KGS

What do the protesters want?
If this question were a college course, it would be taught at the 101 level. Not because the subject matter is simple, but rather because what the people who are protesting in Iran want is very basic. All the sophisticated analyses of the talking heads and academics, as well as the rationalizing of the political elite not withstanding, what the people want can be summed up as follows:
They want to be able to talk to each other, meet with each other, socialize with each other, hold each other’s hands or embrace, or even be able to look at each other, without fear. Without fear of arrest, without fear of being beaten up, simply not to be afraid all the time.
They want to be able to read, write, communicate, blog, Tweet, without fear. Without fear of being arrested, without fear of being tortured without fear of being killed.
They want to be able to gather in social circles, assemble and talk shop, or politics or just rock and roll, without fear. Without being afraid all of the time.
They want to be able to dance, to sing, and to play music Without Fear.
They want to be able to travel and return home Without Fear.
They want to be able to vote for their own candidates in a Free Election and they want their votes to be counted, no matter what the result. They want Free Elections with Free Candidates.
They want to be able to worship who, what or how as they want. They want freedom of religion, and freedom from religion. They want to be able to be Muslims, Bahaiis, Christians and Jews or Buddhists, or nothing. They want to have faith without fear.
They want to be able to walk with their daughters, wives, husbands and sweethearts without having to explain why and Without Fear.
They want the women of Iran to have equal rights. They want their mothers, daughters and sisters and wives, and sweethearts to be able to be Free and Equal Citizens. They want the Women of Iran to live Without Fear.
They want to be able to go to school and apply for jobs, and attend their college of choice without having to prove their religiosity and Islamic revolutionary credentials. They want to learn and work Without Fear.
They want to be respected by the world community and not be shunned as terrorists. They want their rightful place in the annals of civilized nations recognized. They want a Fear Free Iran.
What the people who are protesting want is Freedom From Fear. They want to be able to live their lives with their families and friends, and loved ones without being afraid all the time. We need to support them and tell them that we are with them and that we support their aspirations for a Free & Democratic Elections. This is not meddling; this is a basic right in any civilized nation. Freedom from Fear is a Universal Human Right. What they want is for the Free World to help them get rid of this Fear, known as the the Islamic Republic.
NOTE: These protesters were unanimous in their distrust for Mir Mousavi, they were clearly not protesting in favor of his candidacy, but using the unrest and protesting to strike a death blow to the Islamic regime itself.
