Iranians Rally for 2nd Day Outside the UN Against Rouhani’s Visit
Iranian American supporters of the opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran rallied for a second day on Wednesday in New York outside the United Nations saying “No to Rouhani” and voicing their utter opposition to the mullahs’ regime ruling Iran.
The demonstrators demanded the expulsion of Iranian Regime President Hassan Rouhani and the mullahs’ delegation from the UN. The participants in this rally described Rouhani as the representative of a warmongering regime that has the world’s highest number of executions per capita. This regime considers its survival conditioned on a continual support of terrorism, human rights violations, attacking oil facilities, piracy and nuclear blackmail. The delegation of such a state should be expelled from the UN immediately.
Various posters were held by the protesters emphasizing the UN seat currently held by the Iranian regime should be handed to the Iranian people’s resistance movement and democratic alternative to the mullahs’ regime, the NCRI. The Iranian people’s right to resistance and overthrowing the mullahs’ inhumane dictatorship should be acknowledged, they added.
