Iranian American Community of Northern California and other peace seeking Iranians and Americans, NGOs, invites all concerned citizens to join the “Free Iran Rally”, scheduled for Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
The gathering will bring thousands to the U.N. against the backdrop of increasing executions in Iran just as the U.N. General Assembly meetings convene. This year’s rally coincides with shocking new revelations about the 1988 Massacre of some 30,000 political prisoners in Iran. Those with direct ties in the massacre currently hold the senior positions in the government of Iran. Rally participants will call on the United Nations to hold them accountable for this crime against humanity.
Thousands of Iranian-American community members will join human rights activists, prominent civil and community leaders to condemn ongoing executions in Iran, condemn Iranian government’s malign role in the Middle East, particularly in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon, and condemn clandestine nuclear bomb pursuit.
The gathering recognizes and echoes the undeniable rights of Iranian people and their resistance for democratic regime change in Iran.
