Iran Round the World
United for Iran is a worldwide movement taking place on July 25th to show support for the people of Iran. This day of action comes after the controversial Iranian elections that took place on June 12th, causing widespread protest among citizens. The government of Iran reacted to these protests in a brutal way, leaving a tleast 20 people dead, hundreds injured and, even more arrested. The Iranian government took away the civil rights of their people and the world is taking a stand.
Taking place in more than 60 cities around the world, this action is the first worldwide action to show solidarity with the Iranian people and support their civil rights. It is the hope that the events of this day will cause change and put an end to the violence and bring about freedom of expression.
