Announcement #3, Saturday, June 26, 2009
Thanks for your enthusiastic participation in thee Human chain event on Yonge Street in solidarity with Iran
We should thank the support of Canadian politicians and parties who supported
Iranian people and their rightful demands for freedom and democracy. However we
expect more support and serious presence from all politicians in this kind of
social events that include full spectrum of Iranian-Canadian community.
Hereby we thanks Dr. Reza Moridi (MPP, Richmond Hill), and Godwin Chan (Councillor, Richmond Hill) for their participation and support in this event. Also we and the community sincerely thanks York Region Police, especially "Hate Crime Unit" and also officer "Steve" and his partner for their great support, co-operation and their presence to protect people and keep the order along the human chain.
We also appreciate all officers at Unit 32 of Toronto police, especially officer Momeni (Iranian-Canadian veteran police officer) who professionally and patiently served in all the events and protest held recently in support of democratic movement of Iranian people in GTA.
We thank all the media (both English and Farsi) that were present and covered the event. We appreciate the help we received from Mr. Mohsen Eslami and Saeid Fotovat in taking pictures of the memorable day of Human Chain event.
We also thank all the volunteers and supporters of Human Chain Event, especially those who came up with the uniting flag idea; Iranian flag with the name of Iran, that ended the recent irrelevant tension and dispute over the design of a flag outside Iran. The neutral design that proposed a third option that is not supporting the regime or any party or organization. Democracy is the freedom of choice and believing in variety of voices and tolerance of opposing ideas.
At the end we would like to thanks everyone who helped organizing the event by printing and advertising on paper or on the internet and made this memorable Human Chain event possible.
Hope one day Iranian people gain the right for free and democratic election, the day that is not too far.
