United for Iran – A global day of action
On Saturday July 25th, 2009 85 cities around the world will host rallies and protests to help support the Iranian people in their fight for democracy. Following the abuse of human rights and the denial of freedom for Iranian people after the June 12th elections, United for Iran is uniting the international community to show their support and condemn the actions of the Iranian government.
Messages have been created by prominent individuals worldwide in support of the effort. View video messages from Mairead Maguire and Jody Williams here.
