Green Balloons for Iran






People are called to send "green" balloons to the sky on Friday in Iran and any where else in the world. Sky is ours if they ban us express ourselves on the ground. They may shoot our balloons but at least we can be happy that no one dies.

"Are you mad about what has been happening inside Iran these days? Well then take a deep breath... blow it all into a Green Balloon... and wait until Friday afternoon to send it up to the sky, wherever you are on this planet. Millions of Iranians inside Iran are planning to paint the sky green on Friday exactly at 1pm Tehran time. The non-violent green movement is being cracked down on the ground, so lets take it to the sky."

Great, Wil. Did you look down through M's earlier posts? Amazing stuff.

And you just had a balloon yesterday! You could have painted it green for today. Did you ever figure out what it is?

Shoot, it is all ready 6 PM in Iran. Missed it. However, I see where they are wearing green wrist bands. May just pick up some green dye for my wrist band if I can't all ready find one that is green. Thanks Wil. We need to show support.
