Day of Global Solidarity with Iranian Protesters
Human rights organizations have set aside July 25 as a global day of action to show solidarity with Iranians who have been peacefully protesting last month's presidential elections, organizing demonstrations in cities across Europe and the United States.
Amnesty International, Reporters without Borders, Human Rights Watch and other NGOs have organized demonstrations in 80 cities from Seoul to London, including Berlin, Melbourne, Barcelona and Chicago.
On July 25, 2009, people all over the world will be showing their support for Iranian protesters in numbers never before seen. In protests sponsored by United4Iran, more than 100 cities will be hosting demonstrations simultaneously, spreading a message of human rights throughout the world and sending a message to the Islamic Republic of Iran that we are watching. This is a day for us to show up for civil and human rights, to put our differences aside, and show our solidarity as supporters of the people of Iran.
