Spirited protest against Ahmadinejad

Washington Post: Turaj Zaim woke up Wednesday in a Days Inn in Queens and took a cab to the United Nations, determined to meet Iran's leader. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was scheduled to address the General Assembly in the afternoon, and Zaim, a lanky, blue-eyed hip-hop artist, wanted to talk to him face to face. "I want to ask him why they held my father for 90 days," said the 33-year-old, who had flown in the night before from San Francisco. His father, a democracy activist in Iran, was arrested in June as Iranians took to the streets to protest a disputed presidential election. The streets of Midtown Manhattan were filled with other Iranians who had traveled to New York to protest Ahmadinejad's presence. Some had demonstrated there against the shah three decades ago. Some said they, too, hoped to get the president's attention. They staged a sound-and-light show Tuesday night in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, projecting images of Iranian unrest on the white T-shirts of volunteers and declaring, "Ahmadinejad is not my president." They sang songs Wednesday outside Iran's U.N. mission and marched with green banners -- the Iranian opposition's signature color -- as close as they could get to where he would be speaking.

"Hey hey, ho ho, Ahmadinejad has to go"

"Mahmoud bia biroon"

A protester and a cleric member of the Iranian delegation exchange a few words about Mousavi:

Names of martyrs of June uprising are read. The crowd shouts "Haazer" (Here) after each name is read:

Protesters walk on streets around United Nations:

Rabbis and Iranians alike protest against Ahmadinejad during U.N. sessions in NYC. A report:

Protests inside Iran

Let us look at protests in Iran:


I don't know where they get these people.


It was Great

by masoudA on

There were several venues and rallies were held for hours - I'd say all together, there must have been over 25,000 supporters out there.   I distributed over 4000 of these flyers - focusing mainly on media reporters (there must have been 100 of them) and non-Iranians. 




A Small Dose Of Reality

by Minoo66 on

I was there, and I am proud of my participation. However I should concede it was not much of a thing.

I wanted to see a melting pot of Iranian opposition; instead I found a mosaic gathering. Divisive lines were too obvious.

I wouldn't call it a total disappointment and with the same token I don't expect Mullahs get really nervous over it.


Is that it?

by ghalam-doon on

I'm sorry, but is that it? From more than ONE MILLION Iranians who live in the US? Even if one in a hunderd had shown up, we would have had a huge crowd.


Let's see them set something on fire like in Tehran

New York police will beat them down worse than Iranian police did.
