/file 0066/tc 00:11:04:11 00:11:06:15Iran had never been exactlyheaven for journalists.
/file 0067/tc 00:11:07:03 00:11:09:13But after he came to power -
/file 0068/tc 00:11:09:16 00:11:14:11it became hell on earthfor freedom of speech.
/file 0069/tc 00:11:15:23 00:11:22:05The last chapter of my lifehappened in this hell
/file 0070/tc 00:11:28:17 00:11:31:08Mr. President! I am a university student.
/file 0071/tc 00:11:31:12 00:11:36:03Last week another physicsgraduate committed suicide.
/file 0072/tc 00:11:36:06 00:11:41:21The second in just six months!How can a real man do that? Get away!
/file 0073/tc 00:11:41:24 00:11:46:08Why do you ask me?Go and ask him, why he did it.
/file 0074/tc 00:11:46:12 00:11:47:19But...
/file 0075/tc 00:11:48:08 00:11:50:07Why did they commit suicide?
/file 0076/tc 00:11:50:10 00:11:54:16Most of the best studentsare moving to Canada or USA.
/file 0077/tc 00:11:54:19 00:11:57:09And the elite are moving there to.
/file 0078/tc 00:11:57:14 00:12:02:19Not all of them. But what's the problem?A man is free to choose the place he lives.
/file 0079/tc 00:12:03:00 00:12:06:00Can we place such restrictions on people? 00:12:10:10 00:12:15:Rajab Ali MazrouiThe head of Iranian Press Association
/file 0080/tc 00:12:15:18 00:12:20:01A lot of unbelievable thingshave happened in the last few years.
/file 0081/tc 00:12:20:06 00:12:24:06With Ahmadinejad,the whole country was in the hands of -
/file 0082/tc 00:12:24:21 00:12:31:24the radical authoritarian parties.
/file 0083/tc 00:12:32:18 00:12:36:05Social and political spacewas more and more restricted -
/file 0084/tc 00:12:36:08 00:12:40:01and consequentlythe newspapers got problems.
/file 0085/tc 00:12:42:13 00:12:47:18The flames of hell whichthe government had ignited -
/file 0086/tc 00:12:47:21 00:12:52:17against the mediabecame stronger and stronger.
/file 0087/tc 00:12:52:21 00:12:56:19This fire that even consumedthe conservative newspapers -
/file 0088/tc 00:12:56:23 00:13:02:02which supportedthe Supreme Leader of Iran.
/file 0089/tc 00:13:02:17 00:13:09:18The second of July 2008we lost our job at "Tehran Emrooz" -
/file 0090/tc 00:13:09:22 00:13:14:24a pro regime newspaper,because we published -
/file 0091/tc 00:13:15:07 00:13:19:17a feature critical ofAhmadinejad's corrupt disposition.
/file 0092/tc 00:13:20:06 00:13:24:20But some people saidwe were banned -
/file 0093/tc 00:13:24:24 00:13:29:15 because he was offendedby the picture that -
/file 0094/tc 00:13:30:01 00:13:32:08we published.
/file 0095/tc 00:13:34:07 00:13:37:00This situation is too stupid.
/file 0096/tc 00:13:37:04 00:13:42:15They can't tolerate evena few critical words.
/file 0097/tc 00:13:42:19 00:13:46:16They also refuseto listen to our apologies.
/file 0098/tc 00:13:46:20 00:13:49:11I don't know why we go onworking as journalists?
/file 0099/tc 00:13:51:01 00:13:54:14All the time you told methey couldn't close our newspaper!
/file 0100/tc 00:13:54:18 00:13:58:21I didn't think they would,as we are a pro-state newspaper.
/file 0101/tc 00:13:58:24 00:14:01:22Of course we were a little radical.Isn't this unbelievable?
/file 0102/tc 00:14:02:01 00:14:07:00How many people were working here?150 people altogether?
/file 0103/tc 00:14:07:03 00:14:09:03150 people.
/file 0104/tc 00:14:09:12 00:14:13:12Maybe they banned usbecause of the picture -
/file 0105/tc 00:14:13:16 00:14:17:04or because of a critical articleabout Ahmadinejad.
/file 0106/tc 00:14:17:08 00:14:21:14Both the pictureand the text were very bad.
/file 0107/tc 00:14:21:18 00:14:25:02It was insulting!It was unprofessional!
/file 0108/tc 00:14:25:06 00:14:30:04It's like an underground articleagainst Ahmadinejad.
/file 0109/tc 00:14:30:08 00:14:31:01Exactly!
/file 0110/tc 00:14:31:06 00:14:37:03The media must respect a Presidenteven if they don't agree with him.
/file 0111/tc 00:14:37:08 00:14:42:24Do you know what'sthe problem with this photo?
/file 0112/tc 00:14:43:03 00:14:47:06If you google "the gorilla",this picture of Ahmadinejad will appear.
/file 0113/tc 00:14:47:11 00:14:49:22 I tried,but nothing came up!
/file 0114/tc 00:14:50:03 00:14:56:17The government isn't patient with us.Of course we don't support any mistakes
/file 0115/tc 00:14:57:06 00:15:00:21But this is the first timethey interfered the judiciary's duty!
/file 0116/tc 00:15:01:00 00:15:02:06Yes. Exactly!
/file 0117/tc 00:15:03:06 00:15:08:00Can we reopen the newspaper?Our experience says no!
/file 0118/tc 00:15:08:04 00:15:09:23It hasn't happened in the past.
/file 0119/tc 00:15:10:01 00:15:14:24It even takes them a very long time beforethey start to process our complaint.
/file 0120/tc 00:15:15:13 00:15:21:09We are trying to reopenthe newspaper in a few days time.
/file 0121/tc 00:15:21:14 00:15:26:13If we can't do that,we will try to start another.
/file 0122/tc 00:15:26:17 00:15:31:11We can't deny your abilities,and if we don't have any choice -
/file 0124/tc 00:15:31:15 00:15:33:11we'll send you to other newspapers.
/file 0125/tc 00:15:34:10 00:15:37:14How many banshave you experienced overall?
/file 0126/tc 00:15:37:18 00:15:38:22Let me count.
/file 0127/tc 00:15:38:22 00:15:39:19Do it.
/file 0128/tc 00:15:40:10 00:15:42:11What do you want?
/file 0129/tc 00:15:42:20 00:15:46:16I can't say anythingin front of the camera.
/file 0130/tc 00:15:46:20 00:15:50:20Maybe the film isfor the security agencies?
/file 0131/tc 00:15:50:24 00:15:52:20Let me ask you some questions.
/file 0132/tc 00:15:52:24 00:15:55:06Why are you filming us?
/file 0133/tc 00:15:55:10 00:15:59:00I'm making a film called"We are journalists".
/file 0134/tc 00:15:59:08 00:16:05:10Anyway, we want to continue!But are there no more options?
/file 0135/tc 00:16:05:14 00:16:11:13But some newspapers are still open.What if they close them too?
/file 0136/tc 00:16:11:17 00:16:16:11Then we find another option.We dance on the razor's edge!
/file 0137/tc 00:16:16:15 00:16:17:19Remember that!
/file 0138/tc 00:16:18:13 00:16:21:05Our last hope is God.
/file 0139/tc 00:16:21:09 00:16:25:24Maybe I'll find a new job,they might also ban.
/file 0140/tc 00:16:26:09 00:16:31:02There is no guaranteein Iran for journalists.
/file 0141/tc 00:16:31:12 00:16:35:15I can't clearly foreseemy own economic situation.
/file 0142/tc 00:16:36:06 00:16:40:05We have to pay the cost of loving our jobs so much.
/file 0143/tc 00:16:43:19 00:16:47:03Even my little son knows our plight.
/file 0144/tc 00:16:48:17 00:16:54:00He said Daddy don't worry!I have money, I don't want anything.
/file 0145/tc 00:16:54:04 00:16:58:12What an awful job you have!Why don't you have a little shop?
/file 0146/tc 00:16:58:23 00:17:00:22No job! No money! No food!
/file 0147/tc 00:17:01:13 00:17:05:04I know a journalist who -
/file 0148/tc 00:17:05:08 00:17:10:20lost his job for one year.What did he do during that time?
/file 0149/tc 00:17:10:24 00:17:14:08He just sat in a parkevery day -
/file 0150/tc 00:17:14:12 00:17:18:19and tried to hide the problemfrom his family.
/file 0151/tc 00:17:19:12 00:17:24:20In our bodies there is a worm whichdoesn't let us leave journalism.
/file 0152/tc 00:17:24:24 00:17:28:18I will try to go onwith this stupid job!
/file 0153/tc 00:17:29:02 00:17:33:20As a cartoonist what do you dowhen a newspaper is closed?
/file 0154/tc 00:17:33:24 00:17:37:09I try to laugh a hysterical laughter.
/file 0155/tc 00:17:41:04 00:17:46:15How many bans Amir?This is the fourth one!
/file 0156/tc 00:17:47:05 00:17:51:10In how many years?In three years.
/file 0157/tc 00:17:52:10 00:17:57:08What is your plan now?Nothing. I have to check the options.
/file 0158/tc 00:17:57:19 00:18:00:19Find a job with good money.
/file 0159/tc 00:18:00:23 00:18:04:07Maybe a drains cleaner?I want to be a taxi driver!
/file 0160/tc 00:18:04:11 00:18:06:11Babysitter.
/file 0161/tc 00:18:06:15 00:18:08:06We can sell popcorn.
/file 0162/tc 00:18:09:12 00:18:14:01But not today.We should go to the swimmingpool.
/file 0163/tc 00:18:15:00 00:18:17:06Yes.We have to go for a swim.
/file 0164/tc 00:18:17:15 00:18:21:23These are the last photos of us for the next generations to see!
/file 0165/tc 00:18:22:07 00:18:24:07One, two, three...
/file 0166/tc 00:18:24:10 00:18:29:04Is this an underground film?What's your plan now?
/file 0167/tc 00:18:29:08 00:18:33:16I'm also working in another newspaperas a freelancer -
/file 0168/tc 00:18:33:23 00:18:38:11but the salary of this jobwas my main income.
/file 0169/tc 00:18:38:15 00:18:43:12It wasn't fair toclose down this newspaper.
/file 0170/tc 00:18:43:16 00:18:48:18The people who did itdon't understand our plight -
/file 0171/tc 00:18:48:22 00:18:53:16because we did our jobsas professionals.
/file 0172/tc 00:18:54:00 00:18:59:11In the last month I thoughtthat if I lost this job I would die.
/file 0173/tc 00:18:59:15 00:19:04:01Because I was becominga good journalist.
/file 0174/tc 00:19:04:05 00:19:05:18Are you going to die now?
/file 0175/tc 00:19:05:22 00:19:09:11No! I am not going to die!It can't kill a person.
/file 0176/tc 00:19:09:15 00:19:13:11It's like a murdering a journalist,when they close the newspaper.
/file 0177/tc 00:19:13:24 00:19:16:02It is kind of a killing.
/file 0178/tc 00:19:16:24 00:19:21:14They think we are sheep.I am serious.
/file 0179/tc 00:19:21:24 00:19:26:13If I say sheep, it's the correct wayto explain their thinking.
/file 0180/tc 00:19:26:19 00:19:31:02I have a friend who not only gothis salary reduced -
/file 0181/tc 00:19:31:05 00:19:34:00but also he had to pay back moneyto the newspaper.
/file 0182/tc 00:19:34:13 00:19:39:11Some of themthink that they are Pharaohs -
/file 0183/tc 00:19:39:14 00:19:43:06with whips in their hands.
/file 0184/tc 00:19:43:10 00:19:47:07The system is like slavery.
/file 0185/tc 00:19:48:12 00:19:49:24What is your plan now?
/file 0186/tc 00:19:50:03 00:19:54:09Give me your camera!Tell us what is your plan?
/file 0187/tc 00:19:54:14 00:19:57:11Here we can se Mr. Farahani.
/file 0188/tc 00:19:57:15 00:20:01:13How can you pay backyour bank debts now?
/file 0189/tc 00:20:01:17 00:20:04:20I don't know!I thought about that all night.
/file 0190/tc 00:20:04:24 00:20:07:19I'll invest in the building industry.
/file 0191/tc 00:20:07:23 00:20:11:10Do you want me to join in?But this needs money.
/file 0192/tc 00:20:11:14 00:20:15:08Do you have enough?You can sell your luxury car.
/file 0193/tc 00:20:15:12 00:20:18:19I need it as a taxi for getting money.
/file 0194/tc 00:20:24:02 00:20:29:12In fact it wasn't a joke.For a long time -
/file 0195/tc 00:20:29:16 00:20:36:21like so many other journalists,I was using my car to survive.
/file 0196/tc 00:20:38:24 00:20:43:20The summer of 2008became a hell to me -
/file 0197/tc 00:20:43:23 00:20:48:08because I began to criticizegovernment social policies -
/file 0198/tc 00:20:48:12 00:20:50:04in my personal blog.
/file 0199/tc 00:20:50:07 00:20:54:19At the same timeAhmadinejad ordered the police -
/file 0200/tc 00:20:54:22 00:21:00:02to be extra brutal withall criminals.
/file 0201/tc 00:21:05:03 00:21:10:06Dear citizens!We try to keep you safe.
/file 0202/tc 00:21:10:13 00:21:16:20We try toprotect society from criminals.
/file 0203/tc 00:21:17:01 00:21:22:18Myself and other journalistscriticized this illegal police action -
/file 0204/tc 00:21:22:22 00:21:29:14so we blogged aboutpunishment without trial.
/file 0205/tc 00:21:42:18 00:21:48:01I got hold of top secret photos of the brutality -
/file 0206/tc 00:21:48:08 00:21:52:23 and thenI published them.
/file 0207/tc 00:22:05:07 00:22:08:04Access to this blog is forbidden.
/file 0208/tc 00:22:09:19 00:22:14:16I was immediately firedfrom my other job in -
/file 0209/tc 00:22:14:20 00:22:18:15the government's newspaper.Like all of my colleagues -
/file 0210/tc 00:22:18:19 00:22:23:13I tried to get my job back.
00:22:25:13 00:22:28:20The Association of Iranian Journalists
/file 0211/tc 00:22:29:20 00:22:35:06The reaction of the director ofthe newspaper to my protest letter -
/file 0212/tc 00:22:35:09 00:22:37:16was two new reprimands.
/file 0213/tc 00:22:37:23 00:22:41:17Their reactions are not legitimate.
/file 0214/tc 00:22:41:24 00:22:47:15I told them that these reprimandswere not legal.
/file 0215/tc 00:22:47:18 00:22:53:13If they continued with this toneI would complain to the court.
/file 0216/tc 00:22:53:17 00:22:56:00This is a letter from my boss.
/file 0217/tc 00:22:56:05 00:23:02:14He wrote that I couldn'tcontinue in my present roll.
/file 0218/tc 00:23:02:17 00:23:06:10I blogged the whole absurd process.
/file 0219/tc 00:23:06:14 00:23:11:03He said that I shouldstop complaining -
/file 0220/tc 00:23:11:07 00:23:14:14or my family would suffer.
/file 0221/tc 00:23:15:17 00:23:24:09Why? Because I'm criticizingAhmadinejad and his agenda.
/file 0222/tc 00:23:26:16 00:23:31:16I think it's better if the journalistskeep their political opinions -
/file 0223/tc 00:23:31:23 00:23:36:01separated from their job -
/file 0224/tc 00:23:36:05 00:23:40:12if money is important for them.
/file 0225/tc 00:23:41:14 00:23:47:16In this meeting I realized thatnot only I -
/file 0226/tc 00:23:47:20 00:23:53:06but also the association had a problem with the government.
/file 0227/tc 00:23:53:10 00:23:58:00They tried to stopand crack them down.
/file 0228/tc 00:23:58:14 00:24:03:04The government pressurewas like a hidden gun -
/file 0229/tc 00:24:03:08 00:24:05:07on our temples.
/file 0230/tc 00:24:05:11 00:24:07:20So in the summer of 2008 -
/file 0231/tc 00:24:07:24 00:24:11:24the association informed usabout the situation.
/file 0232/tc 00:24:12:15 00:24:17:20They asked us to showour solidarity to the government -
/file 0233/tc 00:24:18:00 00:24:21:06by voting at the nextpress association election.
/file 0234/tc 00:24:24:18 00:24:27:11Why do they want to stop us?
/file 0235/tc 00:24:27:15 00:24:32:05We haven't receivedany financial help from them.
/file 0236/tc 00:24:32:09 00:24:37:06But they try with everything to stopthe association's activities.
/file 0237/tc 00:24:37:10 00:24:39:09It is really absurd!
/file 0238/tc 00:24:39:21 00:24:44:12Since the arrival of President Ahmadinejad -
/file 0239/tc 00:24:44:16 00:24:46:15my responsibilitytowards the association -
/file 0240/tc 00:24:46:19 00:24:51:01has increased.I'm completely worn out -
/file 0241/tc 00:24:51:05 00:24:53:17I have been close to giving up.
/file 0242/tc 00:24:53:21 00:25:00:00Groundless accusations and barriersto stop the association's acts -
/file 0243/tc 00:25:00:04 00:25:04:15have been our biggestchallenges to overcome.
/file 0244/tc 00:25:05:09 00:25:11:12I think their main problem with usis their expectations about our role.
/file 0245/tc 00:25:11:16 00:25:16:23They expect that we send dailyannouncements to support -
/file 0246/tc 00:25:17:02 00:25:22:07Iranian international politicsand the nuclear program.
/file 0247/tc 00:25:22:13 00:25:27:00And if they arrest a journalist,they want us to support their decision.
/file 0248/tc 00:25:27:03 00:25:30:05Not the journalists!
/file 0249/tc 00:25:30:16 00:25:39:07They also expect us to condemnthe journalist and praise the government.
/file 0250/tc 00:25:40:02 00:25:51:23But our strategy isto support all our members.
/file 0251/tc 00:25:53:24 00:25:56:07Do you have a contract?No.
/file 0252/tc 00:25:56:11 00:25:58:24Any insurance?No!
/file 0253/tc 00:25:59:02 00:26:01:19Not now. But they promised to give it.
/file 0254/tc 00:26:01:23 00:26:03:05I never had any.
/file 0255/tc 00:26:03:09 00:26:08:18Recently the price of the paper has risenand independent newspapers -
/file 0256/tc 00:26:08:22 00:26:14:16can't afford to import paper andnor does the government support us.
/file 0257/tc 00:26:16:02 00:26:20:17Do you have any insuranceor fixed job after 20 years?
/file 0258/tc 00:26:20:21 00:26:22:20No. I don't!
/file 0259/tc 00:26:22:24 00:26:26:13In Iran you don't haveany possibilities to find a job -
/file 0260/tc 00:26:26:17 00:26:28:15as a critical journalist.
/file 0261/tc 00:26:28:19 00:26:34:21Therefore we don't haveany fringe benefits.
/file 0262/tc 00:26:36:08 00:26:38:05Have you been in jail before?
/file 0263/tc 00:26:38:09 00:26:40:09Yes of course.Because you are a journalist?
/file 0264/tc 00:26:40:13 00:26:40:20Yes.
/file 0265/tc 00:26:40:24 00:26:44:16-Hi Ahmad!-Hi. Please take this microphone?
/file 0266/tc 00:26:44:20 00:26:48:06Is this an interview?Just a few questions.
/file 0267/tc 00:26:48:10 00:26:54:20How many papers you worked for actually closed?A lot!
/file 0268/tc 00:26:54:24 00:26:58:08Between 30 or 40 newspapers.
/file 0269/tc 00:26:58:15 00:27:01:05Don't film me!Why?
/file 0270/tc 00:27:01:09 00:27:03:08What?Are you afraid?
/file 0271/tc 00:27:03:23 00:27:05:17No! Don't do that!
/file 0272/tc 00:27:06:08 00:27:09:03If you want the association to go on -
/file 0273/tc 00:27:09:08 00:27:15:00you have to come withyour friends and vote -
/file 0274/tc 00:27:15:05 00:27:18:17in the association board election.
/file 0275/tc 00:27:20:17 00:27:25:08By coming and votewe send a clear message to -
/file 0276/tc 00:27:25:11 00:27:30:02the government thatthey can't stop us.
/file 0277/tc 00:27:32:06 00:27:36:17I promise you that I'll bringten persons to the election.
The election day August, 2008
/file 0278/tc 00:28:09:15 00:28:12:01Congratulations on the Day of Journalists.
/file 0279/tc 00:28:12:23 00:28:16:13At last the happy day ofthe election for the association arrived.
/file 0280/tc 00:28:17:03 00:28:21:16On that day,the election signified more -
/file 0281/tc 00:28:21:20 00:28:23:14than a mere giving ofvotes for the association.
/file 0282/tc 00:28:24:01 00:28:27:13Ahmadinejad took seriouslythe significance of this vote.
/file 0283/tc 00:28:27:23 00:28:31:13Nobody has the powerto close down the association.
/file 0284/tc 00:28:31:16 00:28:35:15Otherwise the policewould have arrested all of us.
/file 0285/tc 00:28:36:21 00:28:41:19I told the media thatthe government's political treatment -
/file 0286/tc 00:28:41:23 00:28:45:07of the association wasn't legal.
/file 0287/tc 00:28:45:10 00:28:49:04But the security forces warnedme to be silent.
/file 0288/tc 00:28:50:23 00:28:55:16The government has forbiddenany criticism because they say that -
/file 0289/tc 00:28:55:20 00:28:58:16we demoralize the people.
/file 0290/tc 00:28:59:19 00:29:05:07Unfortunately some journalistscare more for money than the truth.
/file 0291/tc 00:29:05:11 00:29:07:24Are you a journalist?Not now.
/file 0292/tc 00:29:08:03 00:29:10:16Why?They closed my newspaper.
/file 0293/tc 00:29:10:20 00:29:15:04They said that if I wenton writing my critical articles -
/file 0294/tc 00:29:15:08 00:29:19:14they would close my newspaperand arrest me.
/file 0295/tc 00:29:19:18 00:29:24:00I have been in prison beforeand I am not afraid.
/file 0296/tc 00:29:24:04 00:29:26:14I was editor in chief of our newspaper.
/file 0297/tc 00:29:26:18 00:29:32:00My charge was"Cooperation with foreign countries".
/file 0298/tc 00:29:32:04 00:29:34:20And I was in jail for 2 years.
/file 0299/tc 00:29:34:23 00:29:42:23Our newspaper was closed downafter 400 issues.
/file 0301/tc 00:29:43:14 00:29:48:21If we can't go onworking as journalists -
/file 0302/tc 00:29:48:24 00:29:53:04we will have to break our pens.
/file 0303/tc 00:29:53:08 00:29:58:16The participation of more than1000 journalists -
/file 0304/tc 00:29:58:24 00:30:06:19during this election wasa great victory.
/file 0305/tc 00:30:07:12 00:30:12:05This great victory stoppedAhmedinejad's activities against us.

/file 0346/tc 00:35:19:16 00:35:23:23and which we couldonly talk about in private.

/file 0356/tc 00:35:57:10 00:35:58:03Why?
/file 0357/tc 00:35:58:07 00:36:02:01Because the people love himand he is perfect.
/file 0358/tc 00:36:02:05 00:36:04:12Because he loves the young people.
/file 0359/tc 00:36:04:16 00:36:08:10Because the people love himand he loves them too.
/file 0360/tc 00:36:08:14 00:36:13:13We don't want Ahmadinejad again,so we vote Mousavi.
/file 0361/tc 00:36:16:11 00:36:18:20Why did we believe Mousaviwould win?
/file 0362/tc 00:36:18:24 00:36:22:24Why did we think we couldget rid of Ahmadinejad?
/file 0363/tc 00:36:23:02 00:36:28:14We didn't believe thatAhmadinejad could be our president -
/file 0364/tc 00:36:28:18 00:36:32:12and that he was our destiny.
/file 0365/tc 00:36:32:16 00.36:39:12We thought we deserveda better president -
/file 0366/tc 00.36:39:16 00:36:46:06and that we could get rid of him.But we were wrong.
/file 0367/tc 00:36:46:10 00:36:48:03Why?
/file 0368/tc 00:36:48:07 00:36:52:16We didn't understandthe intrigues of politics.
/file 0369/tc 00:36:59:10 00:37:01:17Why Ahmadinejad?
/file 0370/tc 00:37:01:21 00:37:06:16Because he isn't a thief and a liar.
/file 0371/tc 00:37:06:22 00:37:13:22Bye bye Ahmadinejad!
/file 0372/tc 00:37:17:13 00:37:23:05Look at this newspaper...Mousavi is a liar!
/file 0373/tc 00:37:23:09 00:37:27:14We can document this.
/file 0374/tc 00:37:40:02 00:37:48:18Look! Our flag is up.Whatever happens, we'll win.
/file 0375/tc 00:37:48:22 00:37:55:00God! Let Mousavi be our president.Follow me.

/file 0377/tc 00:38:07:17 00:38:12:06Just Mousavi!
/file 0378/tc 00:38:16:14 00:38:21:09That spring not only the trees,but also the people, became green.
/file 0379/tc 00:38:21:13 00:38:24:06Green and green and green.
/file 0380/tc 00:38:24:20 00:38:30:04The green was not just a big "No"to Ahmadinejad...
/file 0381/tc 00:38:30:16 00:38:33:19But also to his Godfather.
/file 0382/tc 00:38:36:10 00:38:37:24Ali Khamenei.
/file 0383/tc 00:38:38:21 00:38:44:16The Supreme Leader andthe most powerful man in Iran.
/file 0384/tc 00:38:44:20 00:38:50:11The leader of the military forcesand the boss of -
/file 0385/tc 00:38:50:15 00:38:55:15paramilitary and security mafiawho used our oil money -
/file 0386/tc 00:38:55:19 00:38:58:16to his own agenda.
/file 0387/tc 00:39:01:18 00:39:05:08Khamenei became afraid of -
/file 0388/tc 00:39:05:24 00:39:15:21the growing popularityof the green campaign.
/file 0389/tc 00:39:19:15 00:39:23:15This fear was inauspicious for us -
/file 0390/tc 00:39:23:19 00:39:36:09and secret rumors began tocirculate about election fraud.
/file 0391/tc 00:39:36:18 00:39:42:14As a journalist I knew thatMousavi could win -
/file 0392/tc 00:39:42:20 00:39:49:23but I couldn't imaginea press conference -
/file 0393/tc 00:39:50:08 00:39:59:08where the Interior Ministerwould proclaim the victory of Moussavi.
/file 0394/tc 00:39:59:23 00:40:03:18It was impossible for me.
/file 0395/tc 00:40:03:22 00:40:09:04Why?Because the regime would never allow -
/file 0396/tc 00:40:09:08 00:40:14:18the people to elect Moussavi,I couldn't imagine that.
/file 0397/tc 00:40:21:01 00:40:28:05If the regime doesn't pull any fraud!Moussavi will win!
/file 0398/tc 00:40:28:10 00:40:35:14If the regime doesn't commit any fraud!Moussavi will win!
/file 0399/tc 00:40:35:22 00:40:43:07If there is fraud?Iran will explode!
/file 0400/tc 00:40:43:11 00:40:50:19If there is fraud...Iran will explode!

/file 0402/tc 00:41:26:08 00:41:31:15the Iranian people were ready to vote.
/file 0403/tc 00:41:31:22 00:41:37:22Even if one by one,the rumours came to pass.
/file 0404/tc 00:41:38:05 00:41:43:22We as journalists knew,that millions of ballots had -
/file 0405/tc 00:41:43:25 00:41:50:04been produced more thanthere were voters and -
/file 0406/tc 00:41:51:03 00:41:55:22the SMS system was closed down.
/file 0407/tc 00:41:55:25 00:42:01:10But nevertheless we werevery expectant as voters.
/file 0408/tc 00:42:02:08 00:42:07:13The government has closed downthe SMS system and this is illegal.
/file 0409/tc 00:42:07:23 00:42:12:19This isn`t an emergency situation.
/file 0410/tc 00:42:12:23 00:42:17:02On this nice day the peopleare going out to vote.
/file 0411/tc 00:42:17:05 00:42:21:01We must not be afraid ofthe free flow of information.
/file 0412/tc 00:42:22:08 00:42:29:04Even if we journalists knewthat some of the polling-stations -
/file 0413/tc 00:42:29:12 00:42:34:03were closed too early -
/file 0414/tc 00:42:34:16 00:42:43:15we and millions ofMousavi supporters hoped that -
/file 0415/tc 00:42:44:15 00:42:52:05Khamenei as Supreme Leaderwould accept the result.
/file 0416/tc 00:42:57:20 00:43:05:23Why can't we vote?Why are the doors closed?
/file 0417/tc 00:43:08:17 00:43:16:15We are furious.Is it illegal to vote?
/file 0418/tc 00:43:17:05 00:43:23:15They have calledthe security police to beat us.
/file 0419/tc 00:43:23:18 00:43:30:06Look!They are coming to beat us.
/file 0420/tc 00:43:32:09 00:43:37:07The news we receivedfrom all over Iran -
/file 0421/tc 00:43:37:11 00:43:41:23indicated thatMousavi had the majority.
/file 0422/tc 00:43:44:23 00:43:50:14I got information from manytrustworthy sources -
/file 0423/tc 00:43:50:24 00:43:56:18 from different cities with optimistic opinions -
/file 0424/tc 00:43:57:01 00:44:01:14about the victory of Mousavi.
/file 0425/tc 00:44:01:17 00:44:07:06An important person fromMousavi's campaign called me -
/file 0426/tc 00:44:08:15 00:44:14:14and said: "Mousavi has won".
/file 0427/tc 00:44:14:17 00:44:20:06Being sure of Ahmadinejad's defeat,I was very proud and happy -
/file 0428/tc 00:44:20:09 00:44:25:14and I believed we weregoing to celebrate the next day.
/file 0429/tc 00:44:25:17 00:44:31:06The pre-election moodwould continue.
/file 0430/tc 00:44:31:09 00:44:38:034 or 5 hours before the polls closed,strange things began to happen.
/file 0431/tc 00:44:38:06 00:44:45:07Suddenly the streets of Tehranwere full of a new kind of police.
/file 0432/tc 00:44:49:17 00:44:55:05My friends informed me thatall city squares and intersections -
/file 0433/tc 00:44:55:08 00:44:58:12were occupied by riot police.
/file 0434/tc 00:44:58:15 00:45:06:06The fact that The Interior Ministry was surrounded by the riot police -
/file 0435/tc 00:45:06:11 00:45:15:21meant that this was a premeditated action in progress.
/file 0436/tc 00:45:15:24 00:45:21:15We had no possibility of controllingthe process of counting the ballots -
/file 0437/tc 00:45:21:18 00:45:27:00and the handling of the ballot-boxes.
/file 0438/tc 00:45:27:03 00:45:32:04I saw that the representatives ofMousavi didn't get access to -
/file 0439/tc 00:45:32:07 00:45:35:22the Interior Minister or his assistents.
/file 0440/tc 00:45:36:00 00:45:41:02We heard that Mousavi hadasked Khmanei to stop -
/file 0441/tc 00:45:41:05 00:45:45:21his military forces (Bassij and Sepah)interfering in the election.

/file 0444/tc 00:45:56:15 00:46:01:16prevented from receivingany relevant information.
/file 0445/tc 00:46:06:02 00:46:11:05The attacks against Mousavicampaigners and the arrests of -
/file 0446/tc 00:46:11:08 00:46:16:10several Mousavi supporters anda few demonstrators -
/file 0447/tc 00:46:16:19 00:46:21:20indicated thatstrange things were brewing.
/file 0448/tc 00:46:31:08 00:46:38:02Congratulations Mr. Mousavi.
/file 0449/tc 00:46:40:18 00:46:47:08Everywhere our representativesinform us that -

/file 0456/tc 00:48:09:11 00:48:14:02Everything was dark.Just the damn TV was on.
/file 0457/tc 00:48:14:17 00:48:20:20My family was watching TV.
/file 0458/tc 00:48:20:23 00:48:27:13I asked: "What's happening?"They said: "Ahmadinejad is leading!".
/file 0459/tc 00:48:30:02 00:48:36:15Already at 7 pm on that dayI told the media: "This is a coup".
/file 0460/tc 00:48:36:18 00:48:41:15At 12 or 1 a.m. they sentall international journalists out of -
/file 0461/tc 00:48:41:18 00:48:45:15the Ministry and asked usto return tomorrow.
/file 0462/tc 00:48:48:00 00:48:54:18Suddenly my important sourcein the Mousavi campaign called -
/file 0463/tc 00:48:54:21 00:49:00:22and said: "This is a coup".
/file 0464/tc 00:49:03:10 00:49:08:13When I saw the first announcementof the results I knew it was a coup.

/file 0473/tc 00:50:40:06 00:50:44:11That morning I saw him cry.
/file 0474/tc 00:51:10:22 00:51:13:22Not only I,but hundreds of journalists -
/file 0475/tc 00:51:13:25 00:51:18:04and millions of other Iranianswere crying clandestinely.

/file 0479/tc 00:51:28:09 00:51:31:12A rage which manifested itself -
/file 0480/tc 00:51:31:20 00:51:38:20in the streets everywhereafter the election.

/file 0483/tc 00:54:00:04 00:54:05:04After Khamenei's interferencein the election -

/file 0485/tc 00:54:10:25 00:54:16:03the holy mask of the regime fell off,and the truth manifested itself -
/file 0486/tc 00:54:16:07 00:54:21:16behind the unctuous sermons.
/file 0487/tc 00:54:41:14 00:54:47:24After the election the regimebegan an intensive censorship -

/file 0489/tc 00:54:52:10 00:54:58:02Even in the printing process,they controlled every word.
/file 0490/tc 00:54:58:07 00:55:02:02But as a silent protestagainst this -
/file 0491/tc 00:55:02:15 00:55:09:10I never used the word "president"in connection with Ahmadinejad.

/file 0493/tc 00:55:17:16 00:55:20:17Exactly!All journalists did like you.
/file 0494/tc 00:55:20:22 00:55:26:00I even avoided the name"Ahmadinejad" in my articles.

/file 0529/tc 00:58:50:15 00:58:53:10and I had no contact with him.
/file 0530/tc 00:58:53:13 00:58:59:03I had to hide becausethey wanted to arrest me.
/file 0531/tc 00:58:59:07 00:59:05:16So I couldn't continue withmy work in the association.
/file 0532/tc 00:59:05:19 00:59:09:23I was in jail almost 500 days.
/file 0533/tc 00:59:10:07 00:59:17:08And for 328 days I was insolitary confinement and tortured.
/file 0534/tc 00:59:21:04 00:59:27:01Who are you?Help! Help!
/file 0535/tc 00:59:27:20 00:59:35:11In the prison they wanted to rape me,but I fought against them.
/file 0536/tc 00:59:38:13 00:59:41:02I tried to beat them -
/file 0537/tc 00:59:42:19 00:59:45:07and bite themand pull their hair.
/file 0538/tc 00:59:45:10 00:59:47:02Were they men or women?
/file 0539/tc 00:59:47:06 00:59:53:12There were all Men.I wasn't strong enough.
/file 0540/tc 00:59:54:21 00:59:59:22Suddenly one of them hit my neckfrom behind with a chair.
/file 0541/tc 01:00:00:01 01:00:04:24I fell down and in the jailmy neck became swollen.
/file 0542/tc 01:00:05:02 01:00:10:12After the jail the doctors told memy cervical vertebrae was dislocated.
/file 0543/tc 01:00:10:15 01:00:13:104 or 5 men hit me.
/file 0544/tc 01:00:13:13 01:00:18:24My neck was hurt,and I have had 2 operations.
/file 0545/tc 01:00:19:03 01:00:28:17They executed my cellmateand I couldn't do anything.
/file 0546/tc 01:00:28:20 01:00:33:13We could only cry.
/file 0547/tc 01:00:41:19 01:00:46:05Like every day,I was with my mother at her job -
/file 0548/tc 01:00:46:08 01:00:49:04and taught Englishby one of her colleagues.
/file 0549/tc 01:00:49:07 01:00:52:09Suddenly somebody kicked in the door.
/file 0550/tc 01:00:53:19 01:01:02:19They arrested my motherand three of her colleagues.
/file 0551/tc 01:01:07:05 01:01:12:05When I remembered my daughter's eyes, I began to cry.
/file 0552/tc 01:01:12:08 01:01:18:00In my cell, I was crying all thefirst week for her eyes.
/file 0553/tc 01:01:18:03 01:01:23:02I thought, who are they?What do they want from my mother?
/file 0554/tc 01:01:23:05 01:01:26:05My colleagues told them that -
/file 0555/tc 01:01:26:08 01:01:31:22there wasn't anybody totake care of my daughter.
/file 0556/tc 01:01:32:20 01:01:37:04My mother said: Wait! What shall I do with my child?
/file 0557/tc 01:01:37:07 01:01:39:12They said thatit wasn't important:
/file 0558/tc 01:01:39:15 01:01:44:19"Call somebody to fetch her".
/file 0559/tc 01:01:44:22 01:01:49:12After some days my daughterbecame my sole memory.
/file 0560/tc 01:01:50:17 01:01:53:06When I thought that -
/file 0561/tc 01:01:53:09 01:01:58:08I perhaps could remain herefor years -
/file 0562/tc 01:01:58:22 01:02:03:20this impressed me likea terrible torture.
/file 0563/tc 01:02:04:03 01:02:08:19The first day in solitaryconfinement was a torture.
/file 0564/tc 01:02:09:22 01:02:11:01I thought only about my son.
/file 0565/tc 01:02:14:06 01:02:20:21I had chains on my hands and anklesuntil the interrogation.
/file 0566/tc 01:02:20:24 01:02:27:06Sometimes I was kept standing for5 or 6 hours and they beat me.
/file 0567/tc 01:02:27:10 01:02:33:03Once I was not allowed to sit for 2 days.
/file 0568/tc 01:02:36:15 01:02:39:22They forced my head down in a toilet bowl -
/file 0569/tc 01:02:40:00 01:02:45:04while raping me witha unopened cola bottle.
/file 0570/tc 01:02:45:07 01:02:50:15Once they told me that I was freeand I should gather my belongings.
/file 0571/tc 01:02:50:18 01:02:53:00I put on my clothes and felt happy -
/file 0572/tc 01:02:53:03 01:02:58:14They told me:"We can give you a ride to the city".
/file 0573/tc 01:02:58:17 01:03:03:15I asked: "Are you sure that I'm free?",and they assured me about that.
/file 0574/tc 01:03:03:19 01:03:09:16Suddenly somebody called and they said:
/file 0575/tc 01:03:09:19 01:03:13:05"Sorry we were wrong,you have to return".
/file 0576/tc 01:03:13:08 01:03:15:02First they beat us.
/file 0577/tc 01:03:15:05 01:03:20:16And then we had toadmit our guilt.
/file 0578/tc 01:03:20:19 01:03:23:14One night after the election -
/file 0579/tc 01:03:23:17 01:03:31:22the security forces closedand sealed the Press Association.
/file 0580/tc 01:03:32:00 01:03:42:06Even today, it's still closedalthough we tried to reopen it.
/file 0581/tc 01:03:42:09 01:03:47:15I used to not be afraid to cry,but jail has taught me not to.
/file 0582/tc 01:03:47:18 01:03:53:13Suddenly I saw on BBC Newsthat my mother was in jail.
/file 0583/tc 01:03:53:16 01:03:59:06So I became very upset.
/file 0584/tc 01:04:26:06 01:04:29:21They took everything from us.
/file 0585/tc 01:04:40:22 01:04:45:07I don't cry becauseof the jail and torture -
/file 0586/tc 01:04:47:21 01:04:51:09I cry for my country and home.
/file 0587/tc 01:04:58:07 01:05:03:202 days laterI moved to another city...
/file 0588/tc 01:05:03:23 01:05:05:24Please stop.
/file 0589/tc 01:05:43:10 01:05:46:10Because of this I got ill -
/file 0590/tc 01:05:47:00 01:05:55:24and I hugged the pictureof my mother and cried.

/file 0597/tc 01:06:56:17 01:07:02:11I lacked the courageto write about him.
/file 0598/tc 01:07:04:04 01:07:09:11That bloody sunday -
/file 0599/tc 01:07:09:13 01:07:14:09I was still the editor of the social desk at Mehr news agency.
/file 0600/tc 01:07:14:12 01:07:17:04The events on that day,took place near my work.
/file 0601/tc 01:07:18:23 01:07:24:06However, neither I, nor my colleagueshad the courage to write and publish -
/file 0602/tc 01:07:24:09 01:07:29:09even one single story,about what happened on that day.
/file 0603/tc 01:07:31:21 01:07:34:1441 days after that gloomy sunday -
/file 0604/tc 01:07:34:17 01:07:39:17I was arrested for the last timeand they sent me to Evin prison.
/file 0605/tc 01:07:49:13 01:07:54:07My father came homefrom prison totally changed.
/file 0606/tc 01:07:54:12 01:07:56:08He wasn't like before.
/file 0607/tc 01:07:58:15 01:08:01:24His eyes didn't have any light.
/file 0608/tc 01:08:02:00 01:08:07:19Like an empty doll.
/file 0609/tc 01:08:11:10 01:08:16:11I remembered that one of thosewho arrested my father -
/file 0610/tc 01:08:16:14 01:08:19:10When leaving with him -
/file 0611/tc 01:08:19:13 01:08:24:04said to my mother:"Forgive me! I hate my work -

/file 0613/tc 01:08:28:05 01:08:33:01They told me:"We want to film your confession!".
/file 0614/tc 01:08:33:04 01:08:35:15I accepted but -
/file 0615/tc 01:08:36:00 01:08:41:12I didn't know thatthey wanted to torture me -
/file 0616/tc 01:08:41:16 01:08:44:20in a hidden place in Evin prison.
/file 0617/tc 01:08:44:23 01:08:48:06And they tortured me really hard.
/file 0618/tc 01:08:48:09 01:08:53:01In the isolation cell I went onwith the struggle and also -
/file 0619/tc 01:08:53:04 01:08:56:08with giving positive energy to other prisoners.
/file 0620/tc 01:08:56:15 01:09:01:12Do you remember a personwho whistled in block 240?

/file 0628/tc 01:09:26:05 01:09:32:00When I was blindfolded in the jailI heard a voice saying:
/file 0629/tc 01:09:32:03 01:09:39:01"Hi, Mr. Ahmad.I heard that you were fired!"
/file 0630/tc 01:09:39:04 01:09:44:15I thought what a poor man.
/file 0631/tc 01:09:44:20 01:09:52:11They arrested almost 150 journalistsand 40 of them are still in jail.
/file 0632/tc 01:09:52:14 01:09:57:00More than 150 journalists fled from Iran.

/file 0660/tc 01:12:24:02 01:12:26:14Every night I checked the locks twice -
/file 0661/tc 01:12:26:17 01:12:31:12even if I was sure thatI had locked them.

/file 0706/tc 01:15:59:18 01:16:06:10"I'm a guest like you in this land and we can't stay".
/file 0707/tc 01:16:13:07 01:16:15:09My phone rang -
/file 0708/tc 01:16:15:12 01:16:17:24I can't tell you who -
/file 0709/tc 01:16:18:09 01:16:23:09but one of my family said:"They are at our home again".
/file 0710/tc 01:16:23:17 01:16:28:08I looked one second at my pastand my future -
/file 0711/tc 01:16:28:11 01:16:39:16and suddenly I decided to leave.
/file 0712/tc 01:16:39:19 01:16:43:22The last time I hugged my father -
/file 0713/tc 01:16:44:00 01:16:50:15I knew I was going to emigratebut he didn't know this.
/file 0714/tc 01:16:52:13 01:16:58:01Even though my wife was pregnant,I decided to emigrate.
/file 0715/tc 01:17:00:12 01:17:06:02It was so hard toleave my wife, but I did it.
/file 0716/tc 01:17:14:00 01:17:17:21Suddenly the phone rang -
/file 0717/tc 01:17:18:00 01:17:21:01and I looked at my mother's face -
/file 0718/tc 01:17:21:04 01:17:23:17it turned quite white -
/file 0719/tc 01:17:24:01 01:17:31:09she said that dad had to returnto jail the next day at 9 am.
/file 0720/tc 01:17:29:12 01:17:31:19This land is not our home anymore -
/file 0721/tc 01:17:31:22 01:17:34:15and we are like strangers -
/file 0722/tc 01:17:44:00 01:17:53:21but some people believe Iran is ours, and they should give it back.
/file 0723/tc 01:17:53:24 01:17:57:09I knew I wouldn't see him again -
/file 0724/tc 01:17:57:12 01:18:03:24I wished his smell couldlinger with me longer -
/file 0725/tc 01:18:04:04 01:18:10:14I tried to keep his smellwith all my heart -
/file 0726/tc 01:18:10:17 01:18:16:10it was the only physical memoryof my father.
/file 0727/tc 01:18:16:13 01:18:20:01I really miss him.
/file 0728/tc 01:18:20:04 01:18:23:04My heart aches to hug him again...
/file 0729/tc 01:18:27:00 01:18:30:03I miss his arms.
/file 0730/tc 01:18:40:04 01:18:46:08After the guests had left,my birthday ceremony became a funeral.
/file 0731/tc 01:18:46:11 01:18:52:01My father told my mother:"Stay if you want, but I want to leave...
/file 0732/tc 01:18:53:03 01:18:55:13I'm a journalist; not a warrior -
/file 0733/tc 01:18:55:17 01:19:00:02I'm a film maker,not a political activist".
/file 0734/tc 01:19:10:21 01:19:14:21The day after my mothersold all of her gold -
/file 0735/tc 01:19:15:00 01:19:20:11- at 2 o'clock we were in a buswith 3 suitcases, going to Turkey.
01:19:22:18 01:19:24:07 IranAugust, 2010
/file 0736/tc 01:19:38:03 01:19:44:00Journalism in Iran is a beautiful broken machine.
/file 0737/tc 01:19:51:19 01:19:55:19We shouldn't act as infantrysoldiers for the politicians.
/file 0738/tc 01:19:57:01 01:20:00:23Journalism in Iranmeans that every time you write -
/file 0739/tc 01:20:01:02 01:20:04:12your next words could be -
/file 0740/tc 01:20:04:18 01:20:08:01your confession in the jail.
/file 0741/tc 01:20:12:22 01:20:18:22Journalism in Iranis like journalism in the jail.
/file 0742/tc 01:20:23:09 01:20:29:20Journalism in Iranis like dancing with the wolves.
/file 0743/tc 01:20:33:00 01:20:37:16Journalism in Iranis like a mouse running from a cat.
/file 0744/tc 01:20:40:15 01:20:46:04Journalism in Iranis like walking on a minefield -
/file 0745/tc 01:20:46:07 01:20:48:24with no map.
/file 0746/tc 01:20:49:02 01:20:54:02And you don't know when one of the mines will explode.
/file 0747/tc 01:20:54:05 01:20:57:14We're dancing on the razor's edge.
/file 0748/tc 01:20:57:18 01:21:00:20Exile is cold like here.
/file 0749/tc 01:21:01:13 01:21:04:05If you stand still,you'll freeze!
/file 0750/tc 01:21:04:08 01:21:06:22You should run.
/file 0751/tc 01:21:07:00 01:21:09:07You should write. Produce. - And work...
/file 0752/tc 01:21:09:10 01:21:12:00By doing so,you'll be alive.
/file 0753/tc 01:21:12:03 01:21:15:11If you have hope,you can stay alive -
/file 0754/tc 01:21:15:14 01:21:21:00but without hope you will fall down and freeze to death.
