Mind you Sepah, the main supporter of Ahmadinejad is a multi- million corporation. most people in the rural areas of Iran, who many in the left believe have voted for Ahmadinejad, are from ethnic minorities who would either, NOT vore, or should they come to the polls is to protests to the pro-regime candidate. Ahmadinejad govornment has the control of the Media, the Police, Riot police, funded by a multi million corporation (Sepaah e Paasdaaraan) and the new regime-dependant corporations and middle class. Open your eyes, only a tyranny who has acknowledged lack of legitimacy, would kill cruch demonstrations in such a scale , to save their position. Is the British left really that blind?

"Sorry to say they were removed yesterday to Ethiopia (despite being from Uganda).... her friend talked to her in Addis Ababa and she was okay... still waiting to hear from them once they are in Uganda. We went to Glasgow airport Wednesday to leaflet other passengers as a last effort to no avail. .
Anyway, sad news, but two people in to the Centre today have gotten Indefinite Leave to Remain for themselves and their children -- so some good with the bad."
