Rally in Solidarity with Iranian People and 1979 Revolution

NorCal4Iran Rally in San Jose Marks 31st Anniversary of 1979 Revolution
On Saturday, February 6, a rally in support of the Iranian people and commemoration of the 31st anniversary of the 1979 revolution will be held at 1pm at the Plaza De Cesar Chavez in San Jose. "The Iranian Revolution of 1979 stopped short of establishing a democratic government," say event organizers. "But today, after enduring more than three decades of renewed repression, Iranians are protesting once again to complete a mission that was left unfinished."

Rally organizer NorCal4Iran is inviting the public to join and "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 on 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." Read more
