The Green Movement, Revisited

It has been a year since Iran’s last presidential election, the highly disputed poll in which authorities claimed the conservative president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad defeated the reformist challenger Mir-Hossein Mousavi. The results, which most observers believe were manipulated, set off a wave of protests that continue to this day. One of the programs that tracked the increasingly dangerous situation, using footage that was smuggled out, was The Week in Green. As this overview documenting the movement from June 2009 to February 2010 shows, the protests continued long after the election.[vimeo][/vimeo]
