Last Saturday, hundreds of New Yorkers gathered in front of United Nations Headquarters to rally in support of the protesters in Iran.
Switching between English and Persian chants, the crowd called for the United Nations to pay closer attention to the situation in Iran. They also demanded an end to the brutal crackdowns across the Islamic Republic, regularly repeating the Farsi call: “Marq Bar Dictator!” – Down with the Dictator.
