Thousands to Protest the UN Visit of Iranian Regime President Hassan Rouhani

What: Condemning the terrorist attacks in New York City and New Jersey, thousands of Iranian-Americans will hold a rally outside the United Nations Headquarters in New York on the opening day of the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, September 20, 2016, at 10:15 am.

They will protest the visit to the UN by the Iranian regime’s President, Hassan Rouhani, call for a halt in Tehran’s extensive funding and sponsoring of terrorism in the region, demand a halt in the executions in Iran, and urge the prosecution of the regime’s leaders.

Why: According to the United States Department of State, the Iranian regime remains the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism; it has been the main sponsor of Assad and the cause of carnage in Syria, which has become a breeding ground for extremism and terrorism.

The Iranian people have been the main domestic victims of the Iranian regime’s political violence. More than 2,500 have been hanged during Rouhani’s tenure, including dozens of dissidents, women, minors, ethnic and religious minorities.

New evidence implicates Rouhani’s cabinet ministers, in the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran.

A symbolic enactment of the mass execution of thousands of political prisoners in Iran will be performed.

Who: Honorable Joe Lieberman, former Senator from Connecticut, Pastor Saeed Abedini, recently released from prison in Iran, and Sir Geoffrey Robertson, QC, President of the UN Special Court for Sierra Leone, are among the speakers who also include the voices of the young Iranian-Americans.
