VOA Persian Language Report on OIAC-US Rally Against Rouhani, September 28, 2015

Each year, Iranian-Americans and their friends gather in New York City to rally against presence of Iranian-regime officials at the United Nations and to demand that international community hold Iran accountable for its abhorrent human rights record.

On September 28, 2015, Iranian Diaspora and concerned citizens converged in NYC while Hassan Rouhani spoke at the U.N.  The rally highlighted the rights violations in Iran and Rouhani’s abysmal rights record as Iranian government continues to execute more of its citizens per capita than any other U.N. member state. In their coverage of the event, Associated Press highlighted many of the rally’s messages, including the need for the international community to hold Iranian leaders accountable for the more than 2000 people executed under Rouhani.

We thank everyone for their participation in our rally, included the distinguished speakers.

I want to express my support and prayers for such a great cause. Unfortunately I am not able to attend to the rally because of short notice and living in long distance.
