[liberationtech] Iran's Green Movement - URGENT ALERT - Please RT

Dear Sina, 

Just a simple mistake in reading of my email. I said
that this "issue" (going of Mousavi to the hospital as reported in your
email- I mentiond some famous reformist websites and not governmental in
Iran which reported the issue differently) is political not the whole
"event" of the green movement. You can discuss about the liberating role
of technologies in contemporary Iran, but the only technological issue
in your previous email is the installing of cameras in the hospital. I
respect to your political stance and intentionally avoid any political
statement about Mousavi or other political figures in Iran (I think this
list is not suitable place for such discussions) seeking analytic
investigations of the role of media at that event. I am in Iran and
investigated important English, Persian and even Arabic news websites
about that event and had my own analysis.

Sina, Look at that story on the Entekhab (a famous news website belongs
to reformists in Iran) about the issue
( [2]).More or less, same stories -
which shows that Mousavi had a usual surgery and discharged from the
hospital-produced in another news websites including some reformist
websites. Did you check another news resources? However I'm not sure
about that (as there was some contra stories) but I think the issue is
political (without the role of technology) in the sense that it does not
relate to the themes of the Libtech mailing list. Best, -- *Mahdi

Mousavi, former presidential candidate during the 2009 elections and
leader of the Green Movement under illegal house arrest for
approximately 18 months, was transferred to a cardiac hospital in down
town Tehran under extreme security measures accompanied by his wife
Zahra Rahnavard. 526 days after his illegal house arrest, Mir Hossein
Mousavi who was reportedly suffering from extreme chest pain was
reportedly transferred this morning, Thursday August 23rd, 2012, under
extreme security measures to the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) at a cardiac
hospital in central Tehran. It has been reported that security agents
arrived at the hospital the night before Mousavi?s transfer, installing
security cameras throughout the hospital. According to the same reports
the security apparatus assigned to Mir Hossein Mousavi and his wife
Zahra Rahnavard at the hospital includes tens of IRGC agents, security
agents and plain clothes officers. The hospital personnel working in the
unit where Mousavi has been admitted, have not been allowed to leave the
building and Mousavi is said to be banned from all visitation. It has
been reported that as a result of a blocked coronary artery, Mousavi
under went a three hour angiogram. Upon completion of the operation,
Mousavi was transferred back to the CCU unit where he is likely to
remain for a longer period of time. In the event that Mousavi?s
hospitalization is prolonged, there is speculation that he will be kept
in isolation in a separate unit in the hospital. Source: Kaleme: [3]
