Global Day of Action to Express Solidarity with the Iranian People
Community Leaders, Artists Stand in Solidarity with Iran for SF's Day of Action
On July 25th, An estimated 4,000 people across Northern California joined thousands of demonstrators around the world in a global day of action to express solidarity with the Iranian people challenging the results of the country’s controversial June 12th election. Bay Area residents poured into San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza to participate in the demonstration, spearheaded by District 5 Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, the first Iranian-American to be elected to public office in San Francisco.

Joining public officials were various artists and local community members, including American artist Paula Slater, who unveiled a clay sculpture of “The Angel of Iran, The Angel of Freedom,” modeled after 27-year-old Neda Agha-Soltan, whose brutal death was caught on camera and made her a symbol of Iran’s pro-democracy movement.
