Supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran held a rally outside Downing Street today to protest against the "sham" presidential elections in Iran. A letter was delivered to No 10 calling on the British Government to adopt a firm policy towards the mullahs’ "dictatorship" and to abandon a policy of appeasement towards the ruling clique in Iran.
Andrew McKinlay, Labour MP for Thurrock, who took part in the rally, said:
"The sooner we give our support to the Iranian resistance, the better it is for justice and also it is in the best interest of the United Kingdom."
A spokesman for the Council said: "These are sham elections, in which during the first round less than 10% of the population took part. The Iranian people boycotted this election in huge numbers."
