Anti-Rouhani rally gears up in NY by Iranians

Iranians in New York are gearing up for a major rally next week to denounce the presence of the mullahs’ President Hassan Rouhani to the United Nations General Assembly.
The Iranian-American community in the city is alerting more and more individuals to the rally which will be held next Monday, September 28.
The following is a short video clip of a #No2Rouhani van as well as some photos from the Iranians staging a sit-in to urge the international community to condition their relationship with the Iranian regime on an improvement on the human rights situation in Iran.

The rally, which is being organized by the Organization of Iranian-American Communities (OIAC), will press the international community to hold the regime in Iran accountable for its abhorrent human rights record.
The mullahs’ regime in Iran continues to execute more of its citizens per capita than any other U.N. member state. Some 2000 people have been executed under Rouhani in the past two years.

We can and we must

By Hassan Fallah

In a hot summer day in Iraq I am looking for a place to just sit down and rest after a few hours of work. Oh, I forgot to say that this is Camp Liberty in Iraq near Baghdad International Airport, and we are Iranian refugees who have been restricted to appease the fundamentalist ayatollahs in Iran.

These are excerpts of Che’s words in his early years. When I read the word ‘cause’ I suddenly remembered Ali Saremi who spent 24 years of his life in the prisons of the Shah and Khomeini in Iran. During this period he faced various types of pressures and tortures, and he was finally sent to the gallows on Tuesday, 28 December 2010 by the dictators ruling Iran. He was described as the most significant resistant political prisoner by Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi.
