  Iranian dissident and political activist Mohsen Sazegara was a leader in the Iranian student movement against the Shah and returned to Iran in 1979 with Ayatollah Khomeini to serve as a founder of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. He has since become disillusioned with the revolutionary government and in 2001 he initiated a campaign for a referendum on replacing the Iranian constitution.
