Mobile Banner Campaign In Support Of Iranian Freedom At Rally

Rally Marks One Year Mark Of Fraudulent Elections

A rally to mark the one year anniversary of the fraudelent elections in Iran was held in DC on June 12, 2010 in Washington DC. It started with a rally at the Interests Section of Iran, followed by a march past the White House, and then speeches at Freedom Plaza. The rally was sponsored by the Solidarity Committee to Protect the Iranian People's Will and Iranian-American Youth, and featured speakers such as Rudi Bakhtiar and Roxana Saberi. Our Mobile Banner Campaign was present the whole day, calling attention to the human rights abuses in Iran, such as detaining politcial prisoners and arresting journalists. There were calls for freedom in Iran to speak out, release of all political prisoners, and free and fair elections.

There was also a musical performance by Hatef, and an "I Am Neda" photography event.

Here are some photos of the event:
