Despite promises of change, Iran remains the same

The house arrests of Zahra Rahnavard, Mir Hossein Mousavi, and Mehdi Karroubi without a proper trial to even prove that they are guilty of anything shows yet again that Iran has no respect for human rights! Rahnavard, Mousavi, and Karroubi should not be forced to "repent" for supporting regional uprisings--they should have all charges against them dropped immediately! It is clear that they are simply trying to fight for freedom in a highly repressive society--they should not be punished for this! Meanwhile, the Iranian government has cracked down on citizens' rights many times, and it is clear that things will not change unless the Iranian government is forced to change!
How do you feel about the political repression in Iran? Please leave a comment below.
