Human Chain in Toronto on July 9 to commemorate anniversary of the student uprising in Iran



Fellow Compatriots,


On Thursday July 9th (18th of Tir in the Iranian calendar), from 8 to 10 PM to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the student uprising in Iran, we will gather to form  long human chains in Willowdale and Richmond Hill .  We aim to hold this event in a dignified way that befits the rich culture, high prestige, and good name of our community.
