JPOST: Protesters in NY: 'Ahmadinejad not wanted here'

Throngs of people descended on the UN Thursday to protest the Iranian president's anti-Israel diatribe at the General Assembly and to stand in opposition to human rights violations in Iran following the usurped June election.

Waving signs that declared "No Nuclear Iran" and "Ahmadinejad not wanted here," they filed into Dag Hammarskjold Plaza at noon to denounce Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, just as other demonstrations were to take place in other US cities.

At New York's "Stand For Freedom in Iran" demonstration - organized by the Jewish community in conjunction with labor groups and others - shouts of "Stop Iran Now" were punctuated by three shofar blasts, meant to summon world leaders to act against the Iranian nuclear threat.

On stage, four volunteers stood with tape across their mouths and carrying signs that read: "I'm gay and in Iran I'm killed" and "I'm a woman and in Iran I'm stoned."

Protesters held clusters of green balloons and waved Iranian flags in solidarity with the opposition movement there.

Although demonstrators were largely Jewish, organizers included a broad coalition of groups, including the Jewish Community Relations Council, synagogue groups, churches and local chapters of the NAACP civil rights organization and the AFL-CIO labor federation. Among those in attendance were New York Governor David Paterson and former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

.... Iranian activists also joined the rally, including Hassan Zarezadeh Ardeshir, who told the crowd: "Ahmadinejad and other faces of [the] Islamic regime are not just an internal issue. This is about terrorism, nuclear weapons and human rights abuses."

پنجشنبه، مهر ۰۲، ۱۳۸۸ : Iran-Election Protesters Throng U.N

By: Kenneth R. Timmerman

Thousands of Iranian-Americans flocked to the United Nations in New York to protest Iran's recent elections and to assail President Barack Obama for his failure to support the Iranian people after the disputed elections.
The protesters came from all over the country carrying signs. “Thank You Obama 4 Condemning and Not Meddling,” read one sign carried by Fred Maghnati, a 57-year old Iranian-American who traveled to New York from Clarksville, Md. He hastened to explain that his sign was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. “Obama didn’t help us. I don’t see that he is doing anything for us now. He has just been helping the Iranian government behind closed doors,” he told Newsmax on Wednesday.

... Ardeshir Zarezadeh, who was also arrested during the 1999 uprising and until recently worked for the Persian Service of the Voice of America, said he now saw the possibility of an authentic opposition coalition “that could serve as a temporary government during a transition period” after the current regime falls.
“The possibility for real change in Iran is increasing,” he said.
