The demonstrators staged demonstrations and marches in Paris, London, Rome, Bonn, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt, the Hague, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo, Bern, Washington DC, Los Angeles, New York, Toronto and Sydney among others. They urged governments and parliaments, as well as international human rights bodies to condemn the repression of students in Iran and to act promptly in order to send an international fact finding mission to Iran.
Carrying banners and Iranian colors, supporters of the Iranian Resistance and the Mojahedin chanted slogans against the mullahs' regime and its president, Mohammad Khatami, and declared support for the students' protests in Iran which are in line with the democratic struggles of the Iranian people and Resistance.
Chanting "Khatami no, Khamenei no, they are killers, they must go!" the protesters vowed to continue their struggle against Iran's ruling theocracy until the overthrow of the anti-human clerical regime and establishment of democracy and popular sovereignty in Iran.
The demonstrators stressed that the brutal repression, killing and arrest of freedom-loving students is yet another clear sign that the clerical regime is devoid of any potential for reform.
The demonstrators reaffirmed that none of Iran's ruling factions represent the people of Iran. The true representative of the Iranian people is the Iranian Resistance's President-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi.
