I see a lot of independent actions and lines of thought as what to do to reach one faction's goal of whatever they are preaching. Others are screaming for a referendum, but as long as IRI is in charge/power, they will never accept to put a referendum of yes/no to the Islamic Republic. Here is a practical path towards democracy in Iran, the way I see it, of course. I appreciate feedback and any other practical suggestions that do not ask for physical foreign interventions in order to make this "Made in Iran by Iranians".
1. Unification of Opposition: The first step in a practical path towards democratization of Iran is the unification of the opposition democratic forces in Diaspora followed by a bridge of dialogue with the Iranian voices. David/RP/Shirin Ebadi & others (?) need to put differences aside and have a "bring democracy to Iran" meeting to coordinate efforts.
2. Pressure on IRI via ......: The Second step in the path is to put pressure on IRI via demonstrations/strikes (oil strikes in particular). See Prof Sharp's "198 tactics for civil disobedience" article in Farsi. International pressure thru the UN, the EU, the Amnesty International and other democratic voices are included here. Boycotts as well as sanctions on Sepah/IRI leaders/Ghods/Basij arms abroad as well as freezing the accounts of stolen Iranian money by IRI leaders abroad are also included here. See, e.g., reports in Iran Proud and also ireport in CNN on the stolen money in bank accounts abroad. The unified forces in #1 can play a major role in coordinating efforts here as well as #3.
3. Increase in violence: I am sorry to say that I do not see IRI just going away peacefully, since they do not have any place to go and hide except in Gaza and Lebanon. We just saw this escalation of violence leading to victory in Kyrgyzstan too. As the only legitimate armed entity in Iran, we need to pay attention to the real armed forces of Iran to back the opposition.
4. Referendum: Discussion of various democratic constitutions followed by a referendum.
