Opposing the rule of Iran’s President Ahmadinejad is probably not the easiest or safest job going. But opposition groups and exiled activists are now calling for a general strike in the country.

Fox News Radio’s Emily Wither has the story from our Middle East Bureau:

Audio clip:

Activists in Iran say there will be another revolution but it won’t be like the Arab spring, where people take to the streets and protested until the regime toppled. They say instead, movements will need to organize the change of the regime. Amir Hossein Jahanchahi is the founder of Green Wave – Supporters of Freedom in Iran. He believes it should begin with general strike and that an economic shutdown is the way forward:

Jahanchahi “We have to organize the atmosphere for the general strike. Our aim is not to put the people tomorrow morning in the street.”

Jahanchahi says people are scared of the regime, so it must be an organized, collective act.
