Iranian pro-reform movement never managed to communicate directly with the outside world. Most of the content produced in Iran in English language was done by conservatives. Almost none of the reformists websites ever had English sections.
But now, "Rooz":http://roozonline.com (means 'day' in Persian), an online newspaper launched a few weeks ago, is addressing this issue. It has "an English section":http://roozonline.com//11english/ which is basically translations of some of their opinion columns and reports from the Persian version, usually published a couple of days later.
Some of their recent articles include: * "Victims of Dealings with Dictators":http://roozonline.com/11english/008066.shtml (Shirin Ebadi) * "Ahmadinejad: 2005 Islamic Revolution":http://roozonline.com/11english/008233.shtml * "Journalists Wary of the Future":http://roozonline.com/11english/008174.shtml (Farnaz Ghazizadeh) * "Mesbah Yazdi: Ahmadinejad will form an Islamic Administration":http://roozonline.com/11english/008234.shtml
