The Iranian Revolution of 1979 stopped short of establishing a democratic government. But today, after enduring more than three decades of renewed repression, Iranians are protesting once again to complete a mission that was left unfinished.

Thirty-one years ago, Iranian people poured into the streets demanding their basic rights and asking for the end of totalitarianism and tyranny. The Iranian Revolution of 1979 stopped short of establishing a democratic government. But today, after enduring more than three decades of renewed repression, Iranians are protesting once again to complete a mission that was left unfinished.

Newer tyrants, and more blood-thirsty murderers, have taken charge of Iranian government, and are ruining the old and proud country. The Iranian people, men and women, young and old, are challenging the regime in order to reclaim their country and their freedom. The struggle has forced our people, young and old, to stand up against a brutal force, losing hundreds of lives in quest of democracy.

Their demands are simple. They have sacrificed their lives in order to gain what they had longed for decades: basic human rights, independence, freedom, and a democratic government. From the grounds of Iranian universities, to the rooftops and balconies of Iranian homes, people’s cries of freedom are shaking the foundations of the theocratic establishment. Their call for “freedom” is spreading all over the country like a rapid fire. They are shouting that time of petite dictators is over, and that they prefer secular governments to tyrannical ones.

We are inviting you to join us in a rally on February 6, 2010 to declare our unity and our support for these brave people and their struggles. We are not going to watch silently as our brothers and sisters lose their life and endure imprisonment, torture, rape, and violent death, just for peacefully asking for their basic constitutional, civil, and human rights. We are here to let the world know about the brutality of this atrocious and illegitimate government, and to reflect of the voices of people’s demands for freedom and peace to the whole world. Let us hope that our tears, blood, and cries would win over the tyranny and help bring it down.
