We will be waiting for you on September 23rd, all of us, from all over the US. We are not just green, red and white, but a variety of colors. We are the rainbow of Iran. We are a colorful mix and represent all of Iran, young and old, women and men, from the entire political spectrum and all walks of life.

Fariba Amini at the Table of the President of Iran in NY, September 2005

Mr. President, you took our people's votes, you trampled on them, you ridiculed us and you disgraced the nation of Iran. But the world saw a different Iran, an anguished and injured Iran but also a courageous and absolutely resolute Iran.

Mr. President, we, Iranian Americans stand by the Iranian people in our torn country, those you put in jail, those you accuse of being spies, putting them on show trials. Those you allowed to be raped and tortured and ended up being murdered. We stand by every single one of them and we will not rest until their murderers are brought to justice.

Mr. President, we stand by the silenced voices of Neda and Sohrab and all the young people of Iran who want only one thing: to live in a free land.

Mr. President, the halo you saw around your head while you gave that first speech at the United Nations is long gone. Now your nose is bigger, the little dictator in you with a big mouth has been unmasked and the world knows what you are all about: a sham.

Mr. President, the Robin Hood in you vanished when you destroyed the last vestiges of humanity, when you unleashed your thuggish friends on the innocent.

Mr. President, the day will come when you and your cohorts will be put on trial.

Mr. President, you are not "one of the people," as you claimed. You are a scourge on the people.

Mr. President, your eyes betray you. You are a wolf in sheep skin.

Mr. President, this was not a velvet revolution, but a homegrown uprising, against you and your henchmen.

Mr. President, we have news for you, there is always an end to all dictatorships.

Mr. President, we will be waiting for you, by the thousands, coming with caravans from all over the United States of America to say one thing to you: NO to dictatorship, YES to democracy.

Mr. President, here in NYC, we will not be faced with bullets, bayonets and chains, like our compatriots in Iran. We will have the freedom to come and say what is on our mind even if the other side disagrees with us.

Mr. President, we are united under one banner, "democracy and human rights for Iran."

Mr. President, We are anxiously waiting for your arrival and we stand ready, all of us together to shout: "Shame on you. You are not our President."
