The big day

Photo essay: San Francisco rally on global day of action

by kfravon
It turned out to be an amazing day! We met up at San Francisco State University, and walked about 3 miles to the Rally outside City Hall. Many Americans stopped us to ask about the rally and its whereabouts. We were told public radio was announcing the big day. United4Iran/Norcal4Iran staff put together an amazing rally along with many speakers and performers. I witnessed many shedding tears. The gathering was packed with positive energy. Unity amongst people seeking human rights... simply awesome!

Dear Kfravon, thank you for the hard work, khasteh nabashy!  I wanted so bad to be part of the protest on that day and with a green band on my left arm and wearing green earings and holding my little Iranian flag (ba sheer O khorsheed ba ejazatoon) went to UNLV exactly @ 7 p.m on that day but there was no one there and I was very dissapointed but you and Nazy kaviani cheered me up with your fantastic photo essays, you 2 should open up a gallery.


Picture # 11, is my favorite though because those tired looking people standing bar sareh do rahey in the fog, still holding on to their slogens reminded me of tired Iranian nation STILL HOLDING ON!

Picture # 40 brought tears into my eyes, a tired Iranian mother like my own!

And # 140 will be my screen savor for a while.

It was a peaceful day.

Everyone got to display their ideas/thoughts through signs, flags, tears, laughter and ...

If we want to be 'united',  we have to let everyone state their opinion in their own way-

 Unity & Peace for Iran.

Anyone care to guess by whom is the following snipet?

Now here you go again, you say, you want your freedom
Who am I to keep you down
It's only right that you should play it the way that you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound of your loneliness

Nice pictures.  I have a feeling Hamed Nikpay's performance was perhaps the peak of the event. 

There are a lot of green Rosie the Riveter variations. They are all good and we need more variations of it!

Everything is sacred.
