Today's Top Stories (June 15, 2009) - World reactions to disputed Iran election results
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today: “The position of me and the United Nations is that the genuine will of the Iranian people should be fully respected.”
He added: “I have to watch ... this situation, how it evolves.”
European Union foreign policy chief, Javier Solana, also said today that he was “concerned by the latest images and news that arrived from Tehran. I hope very much that at the end of the day the will of the people will be respected.”
He added that although there was little expectation of a change in Iran’s nuclear policy as a result of the election, the EU was still hoping to continue discussing the issue.
British Foreign Secretary David Milliband also said today:
“The very serious doubts that have been raised about the free and fair nature of the election counting process are obviously of major concern to many people in Iran.”
He added: “I think that in the very short term people will continue to focus on what seems to be state violence against its own people in Tehran and elsewhere.”
On Sunday night, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said that "the actions of the Iranian security forces were completely unacceptable,” and he called on Iran to look into the allegations of irregularities of the election "immediately and without delay".
Today, Steinmeier summoned Iran's ambassador to Berlin, protesting at the crackdown against protesters, the following results.
France’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Eric Chevallier, said yesterday that Iran’s ambassador to France was summoned in view of the situation in Iran.
“We hope that the ambassador will bring explanations regarding the events in Iran and will listen to our concerns,” Le Figaro newspaper quoted Chevallier as saying in a released statement.
The statement continued: “While the campaign showed the vitality of democratic debate and the mobilization of Iranian civil society, France equally condemns the brutal repression of peaceful protests and the repeated attacks on press liberty, expression, and communication.”
At the same time Israel’s defense minister, Ehud Barak said: "I'm not sure if the results reflect the real will of the Iranian people," adding: "The triumph of the extremists is bad news, as any kind of victory of extremists should be defined."
Also on Sunday, the Dutch Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen, said in a statement: “The legitimacy of the election has been undermined by reports of fraud during the poll and vote counting."
Iranian reaction world wide
Iranians have been protesting the disputed re-election victory of Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in many cities around the world, from Los Angeles to New York, Dubai, The Hague, and Kuala Lumpur where, according to AFP the police fired tear gas at the protestors.
A crowd of around two hundred protestors also gathered outside the Iranian embassy in London.
While singing nationalist and early revolution songs, such as “O Iran…” and “My Elementary School Comrade”, they also chanted slogans such as:
“Ahmadi, the Pinochet: Iran will not become Chile”
“Artillery, Tank, Fraud: Will not be effective anymore”
“An Iranian will die but not accept abjection”
Addressing Ahmadinejad: “You who professes justice; [give us] justice, justice”
“Oh sweeper-brother, sweep off Mahmoud”
“Dr. pay a visit to a Doctor”
“God’s victory is close at hand; Death to the government that cheats its people”

THIS SONG DON'T GIVE A DAMN
IF THE RHYMES DON'T FIT
IF THE DJ QUIT
DON'T GIVE A DAMN
IF YOU CAN'T SING TO DANCE TO IT
CAN'T ROMANCE TO IT
THIS SONG AIN'T ARROGANT
IF YOU DON'T TRY IT
IF YOUR RADIO DENY IT
DON'T CARE BOUT WHAT WHO GOT
WHAT'S COOL ON TV
OR WHAT SPOTS HOT I FORGOT
I AIN'T MAD AT EVOLUTION
BUT I STAND FOR REVOLUTION
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
SOMEBODY STAND UP
GET UP, STAND UP,
GET UP, STAND UP
(Brother Ali verse)
THIS TRACK AINT ASKING YOU A DAMN THING
NOT THE BRAND NAME BOTTLE WITH YOUR CHAMPAGNE
NOT WHERE YOU LAND YOUR PRIVATE AIRPLANE
HOW MANY BLOOD DIAMONDS SHINING IN THAT CHAIN?
HOW MUCH COMPROMISE IS TIED TO THAT FAME?
HOW MANY MORE TIMES WE GOTTA HEAR THAT LAME
LINE IM INSPIRING THEM
TO DO WHAT? ROLL BETTER WEED AND GET HIGHER THAN THEM ?
FEED THE NEEDY GREEDY ASS FIRE IN THEM?
BE THE SAME DAMN DOG BUT TO FINER WOMEN?
THEY GONNA TELL ME THAT IM PREACHING TO THE CHOIR THAN IM
SURE THEY RIGHT BUT IM TRYING TO LIGHT A FIRE IN THEM
CAUSE I WAS RAISED BY THE ENEMY
AND EVER SINCE THEN THATS BEEN MY IDENTITY
SO IM TRYING TO GIVE BACK WHATS WAS GIVEN ME
TRUTH TOLD DELIVERY IS MY TENDENCY
YOUTH FOLD TO THE SPIRIT OF MY ENERGY
BOTTOM OF MY FEET IS SOMETHING THAT YOULL NEVER SEE
THATS CAUSE IM STANDING SINGING THE ANTHEM
FIST ON MY HAND, AND A LIST OF DEMANDS AND
WHEN THEY HEAR THIS MIGHT PISS IN THEIR PANTS AND
TRY TO GET THE CHILDREN TO NOT LISTEN TO THE MAN
BUT THE MIGHTY PE IS WHAT BIRTHED ALI
SO WHAT YOU GONNA THINK COME AFTER ME?
GET UP, STAND UP
(ChuckD second verse)
OCCUPY IF YOU DENIED
PROTEST SONGS CAUSE I SEE WRONG
MOST OF MY HEROES STILL DONT APPEAR ON NO STAMP
SO I RANT EVEN WHEN THEY SAY I CAN'T
I RISE AGAINST
HOPE I DONT END UP BEING THE SAME THING IM FIGHTING AGAINST
I WINCE NEVER ON THE FENCE
SINCE THEY THINK THE MASSES POWERLESS
I AIN'T ON NOBODY'S POWER LIST
I BALL MY FIST W MY AUDIENCE
I RAISE MY FIST W MY AUDIENCE LIKE THIS
GET UP, STAND UP,
GET UP, STAND UP
(ChuckD third verse)
GOT SO MUCH TO SHOUT ABOUT
WHAT THE 1% IS GETTIN OUT
