IRANIANS PROTEST HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN IRAN
IRANIANS WANT THEIR COUNTRY BACK
The National Union for Democracy in Iran (NUFDI) and other like-minded organizations have organized a protest by Americans of Iranian descent to raise awareness of the horrible conditions that Iranian citizens, but women in particular, are facing under the current radical regime in Iran.
WHEN: Tuesday, September 25, 2018
WHERE: Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (2nd Ave & 47th St.), New York City
TIME: 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM
CONTACT: 703-727-2880 or 281-795-8953
NUFDI members will be in force to protest the deteriorating conditions of the quality of life in Iran. Protests in Iran continue as middle and lower income Iranians struggle to afford bare essentials due to a worsening economy and a crashing purchasing power. Indeed, the regime’s corruption and mismanagement is largely to blame for a roughly 75% devaluation in the rial this year. The radical Iranian regime has responded to these protests with violence, threatening that any protestors caught would be considered an “enemy of the state” and would be sentenced to death.
Iranians protesting the current cleric regime has become too common. These protests have already resulted in more than 20 deaths and hundreds of arrests. NUFDI believes in raising awareness for the many human rights violations taking place in Iran. Among the most urgent issues are the suppression of free speech, religious persecution for those of minority faiths, and the oppression of women.
