Greek journalist Iason Athanasiadis on the shifting political winds in Iran

Monday, January 18, 2010

An op-ed written by him today in the Los Angeles Times can be read here. The name Athanasiadis might ring a bell to some - he was one of the journalists taken off to Evin Prison during the first few weeks of post-election unrest, and his capture at the airport was also noteworthy as he was dragged off screaming at the time in order to let as many people know as possible who he was.

The term "party of the wind" in the article is hezb-e-bâd in Persian (حزب باد).

A short time after his release from Evin Prison he gave an interview that you can see below.
