The demonstrators, mostly Iranian-Americans from Bay Area,  converged at Civic Center Plaza on Saturday from 12-4 pm to show solidarity with the people in Iran who are protesting the outcome of the June 12 presidential election there and demanding an annulment.


The San Francisco rally was part of a global effort which was initiated by Firuzeh Mahmoudi, an Iranian-American from Berkeley and mother of two, and expanded to around 140 cities and towns across the globe.

Firuzeh who is an environmental consultant at the United Nations, took time off from work and moved into action after she viewed the violent crackdown by government forces in response to the peaceful protests by the people in Iran.

There were many speakers at the event including State Attorney General Jerry Brown, San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, Brisbane Mayor Sepi Richardson, former Iranian MP Fatemeh Haghighatjoo, and many others.
