July 9, 2003 Anti-government Demonstration in Iran

Post by KAveh Ahang » Wed, 09 Jul 2003 07:45:03

Dear friends,

I am writing to inform you of a political demonstration to be held in
Iran on July 9, 2003, by the Iranian people across the nation,
primarily in the capital city of Tehran. This peaceful demonstration
will be against the regime's brutal government, demanding civil and
political freedom, separation of religion and state, equality and
justice (especially for the Iranian women), and the immediate
liberation of all political prisoners. I humbly ask for your
establishment's presence on this day to report and broadcast the event
to the world. Assuredly, your media coverage in this demonstration
will help deter the Iranian government from causing any civilian
casualties by attacking what they would consider a "riot."

The Islamic government of Iran has been falsely portrayed as a
democracy, and the majority of Iranians have lost confidence in and
hope from the Reformists who are actually extensions of the
Hard-Liners, who bring tyrannical oppression to the country. I demand
all foreign countries to stop commerce and any type of contracts with
Iran.  The Islamic regime of Iran holds, sponsors, and trains
terrorist organizations all over the world, and they must be stopped.

I ask you and all free people of the world in the name of humanity to
support the rise of peace-loving Iranian people on July 9 and to help
them achieve long-awaited freedom from the current fanatic and archaic
system of government. After all, a free Iran governed by the people
will be a better friend to the USA, and to the rest of the world.
For more details and up-to-date information from inside Iran, you may
contact "Channel One TV", perhaps the most watched and trusted 24-hour
Iranian satellite television station broadcasting from Woodland Hills,
CA, at (818) 226-6200.

Mars Rover Opportunity Mission Status

NASA's Opportunity spacecraft, the second of twin Mars Exploration
Rovers, has successfully reduced its spin rate as planned and switched
to celestial navigation using a star scanner.

Prior to today's maneuver, Opportunity was spinning 12.13 rotations
per minute. Onboard thrusters were used to reduce the spin rate to
approximately 2 rotations per minute, the designed rate for the cruise
to Mars. After the spinning slowed, Opportunity's star scanner found
stars that are being used as reference points for spacecraft attitude.
One of the bright points in the star scanner's first field of view was

All systems on the spacecraft are in good health. As of 6 a.m. Pacific
Daylight Time July 10, Opportunity will have traveled 6.6 million
kilometers (4.1 million miles) since its July 7 launch. The Mars
Exploration Rover flight team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory,
Pasadena, Calif., is preparing to command Opportunity's first
trajectory-correction maneuver, scheduled for July 18.

Opportunity will arrive at Mars on Jan. 25, 2004, Universal Time
(evening of Jan. 24, 2004, Eastern and Pacific times).  The rover will
examine its landing area in Mars' Meridiani Planum area for geological
evidence about the history of water on Mars.

Opportunity's twin, Spirit, also continues in good health on its
cruise to Mars. As of 6 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time July 10, it will
have traveled 82.6 million kilometers (51.3 million miles) since its
June 10 launch.

JPL, a division of the California Institute of Technology, manages the
Mars Exploration Rover project for NASA's Office of Space Science,
Washington, D.C.  Additional information about the project is
