[liberationtech] Hoping to learn more about the 2009 Iran Green Movement

Hi Zak

Alot of the writing on the Green movement and ICTs is very anecdotal.

There is some mention in this USIP report

If I remember correctly Evgeny Morozov in The Net Delusion gives quite
a good description how US foreign policy towards "internet freedom" in
Iran as well as a diplomatic blunder (whereby a state department
official admitted publically that they had asked Twitter to postpone
maintenance so as not to interupt its usage in the Green Movement
protests) ultimately contributed to a post-protest crackdown on
western internet platforms, and the internet in general.

Sami Ben Gharbia also presents some similar analysis here:

Wish you the best in your research.
