2. Begin text:

To the People of the United States of America
Thirty years ago in the turmoil of the revolutionary zeal and
indefensible act of hostage taking was committed that the new
generation of Iran are not proud of at all. We know very well how
that deplorable action hurt the noble American people and how it led
to three decades of unnecessary and painful bad relations between
our two nations.

Only a small and repressive minority who rule Iran today still
insist on keeping Iran on a confrontation course with the US,
Britain and the West and indeed they have now taken the Iranian
people as hostage to their destructive policies.

With sincere best wishes,

The Green Movement of the People of Iran
