Talk:Feminist gathering in Tehran dispersed by police
Article would be better if it commented on civil rights laws in Iran. For example, do Iranian citizens have the equivalent of America's en:First Amendment rights? en:Free speech, right to "assemble and petition the government for grievances"?
Does the law in Iran or specifically Tehran require permits for demonstrations? If so, did this demo have a permit? If not, what did the organizers expect? Did they (perhaps) organize the demo to attract police reaction? (Not saying they did, just asking.) --Ed Poor 14:09, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
- Start with w:Persian Constitutional Revolution and then go through w:Iranian women. There's been a constant struggle between constitutionalists and royalists (supported by UK, US) and now the clergy (since 1979) for the last 100 years in Iran. Both these articles could do with some more well researched info, feel free to contribute to them! One bit you might find interesting (though it doesn't say much and doesn't link to an external (farsi or English) text):
- The Supplementary Fundamental Laws approved in 1907 provided, within limits, for freedom of press, speech, and association, and for security of life and property.
