Civil Society Feels Conservatives' Wrath...

Here is my piece on the current situation of the civil society in Iran (IPS- Inter Press Service). I have reviewed different scenarios that is used by the Ahmadinejad’s government to silence the Iranian activists. Here is the first two paragraphs:

Nearly a year has gone by since Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad came to
office, and his establishment is continuing to suppress civil society,
intimidate the press and arrest activists. Since the government's security
forces violently interrupted a peaceful protest in support of women's rights in
Tehran on Jun. 12, dozens of women activists have been summoned to court -- some
having been interrogated for more than a week. Nooshin Ahmadi Khorasani and
Parvin Ardalan are two prominent activists who have spent more than four hours a
day answering questions. Their lawyer, Nasrin Sotoodeh, told IPS that the charge
is "mobilising people for illegal protests", a violation of national security
laws that can carry a lengthy prison sentence.
