A rally will be held in Washington, DC on Saturday June 12 to mark the anniversary of the 2009 elections and express support for the demands of the Iranian people.
June 12, 2010 marks the first anniversary of Iran's
fraudulent Presidential elections. On this day one year ago, the world witnessed
the bravery of Iranian people as millions poured into the streets to show their
outrage at the disregard of their basic human rights. As expected, the Iranian
government responded to peaceful dissent with violence, detention, show-trials,
rape and murder. The Islamic Republic launched a systematic campaign of terror
and intimidation aimed at destroying the opposition movement.
This year the world will stand in solidarity and join the Iranian people by participating in various events and rallies around the world to mark the public birth of Iran's democracy movement and honor those that have sacrificed their lives for a better future.
Saturday June 12, 2010 -- 3:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Rally starts at Interests Section of IR of Iran, 2200 Wisconsin Ave., N.W.
March to UN Information Center; end at Freedom Plaza
Speakers: Joe Stark, Roxana Saberi, Reza Deghati, Ali Afahsri
Live Music: Hatef
