Iranian-Americans March in DC for a Free Iran

Iranian-Americans are joining a solidarity march for a free Iran today in Washington. The event will kick off with a large gathering outside the U.S. State Department, and the supporters of a free Iran will march all the way down to the White House. The march supports the anti-regime protests in Iran and the 10-point plan of Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi. Supporters of the democratic opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) say that regime change by the Iranian people is the ultimate solution for peace in the region. We are live tweeting the event beginning 11am local time.

13.30: Chants by Iranian-Americans at the ‘Free Iran’ rally in Washington DC:

“Down with terrorist regime in Iran”

“Regime change in Iran”

“Democracy, freedom, with Maryam Rajavi”

“Rajavi yes, mullahs no; they are terrorists, they must go.”

11.00: Amir Emadi, a spokesperson for the Organization of Iranian-American Communities (OIAC), welcomes participants to the ‘Free Iran’ march in Washington. Emadi urged the U.S. State Department to designate the Iranian regime’s Intelligence Ministry (MOIS) as a foreign terrorist organization (FTO). The U.S. added the regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) to its FTO list in April 2019, and Iranians across the world have been calling for the MOIS designation as a complementary step to help stop Tehran’s notorious apparatuses of terror.

10.50: The Iranian-American protesters are chanting their support for the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the main opposition and democratic alternative to the tyrannical rule of Tehran’s mullahs.

10.40: A large number of Iranian-American supporters of the main democratic opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, also known as the Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK) have already gathered outside the U.S. State Department, waving Iran’s tri-color flag and banners that read “March in Solidarity with the Uprising and the Iranian Resistance for Regime Change” and “Stop executions in Iran”.
