Event: Demonstration on the Anniversary of 1979 Revolution in Iran
Date and Time: Saturday February 12, 2011 at 2 PM
Location: Interest Section of the Islamic Republic of Iran (2209 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Washington DC)
Washington, DC--The Solidarity Committee to Protect the Iranian People's Will joins force with other Iranians in the area in a demonstration on February 12, 2011 to demand the Islamic Republic of Iran end its execution practices and to respect its people right for freedom and equality. Just in the last 6 weeks, 112 people have been executed and others have been given the death sentence.
On this day 32 years ago, the Iranian people rose up to bring about a democratic society based on equality and human rights. But their struggle faced set back when a theocratic regime came to power taking away what little rights they had gained.
The world witnessed them rise again in 2009 to once again demand for freedom and democracy. The Islamic Republic of Iran used all means at its disposal to crush the struggle of the Iranian People. But the struggle is not over.
The wind of change is in the air as we are witnessing the brave people of Tunisia, Egypt and other countries rise up against their despotic leaders. It will not be too long when we witness this change in Iran.
Our demands are the following:
Ø Stop All executions in Iran
Ø Free elections for Self Determination
Ø Release all Political prisoners and Prisoners of Conscience
Ø Social Justice and Freedom for All
Ø Human Rights and Democracy
