Iran Freedom Rally
What: Iran Freedom Rally
When: Tuesday, September 20, 2016
Where: Dag Hammarskjold Park
United Nations Headquarters in New York City
Washington, DC; August 16, 2016 – As the largest, most active grass root body of Iranian Diaspora in the United States, Organization of Iranian-American Communities-US (OIACUS) and other peace seeking Iranian American NGOs, invites all concerned citizens to join its supporters at the “Iran Freedom Rally”, scheduled for Tuesday, September 20, 2016 outside the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
The gathering will bring thousands to the U.N. against the backdrop of increasing executions in Iran just as the U.N. General Assembly meetings begin. This year’s rally coincides with the anniversary of the 1988 Massacre of some 30,000 political prisoners in Iran. Those with direct involvement in the massacre still serve at the highest levels of Iranian government. Rally participants will call on the United Nations to hold them accountable for this crime against humanity.
Thousands of Iranian-American community members will join human rights activists, prominent civil and political leaders to condemn executions in Iran, denounce Iranian government’s malign role in the Middle East, and call for regime change in Iran through empowerment of the Iranian people and their organized resistance.
