Human Chain in Tehran in support of Mir Hossein Mousavi - Part 1
The upcoming presidential election is one of the most important elections in Iran since the 1979 revolution. There are four candidates, but the real race is mainly between two of them, current president Mahmoud Ahmadi-nejad and Mir Hossein Mousavi. Lots of people support Mousavi just because they need a break from Ahmadi-Nejad's policy.
On Monday June 8th 2009, 5 days before the election Mousavi's supporters made a human chain in the longest street of Iran, Vali-Asr Ave, a stretch of 12 Miles. Supporters of Mousavi have picked the color green as their symbol.
