HOPI demo and meeting Saturday 20 June Dublin

Hands off the People of Iran’ calls for solidarity with the masses in their struggle for liberation! No illusions in Moussavi!
No to imperialist intervention!

Demonstrate Saturday
20th June at 1.00pm - All Welcome
Outside the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran
72 Mount Merrion Avenue, Blackrock, Dublin

Demo followed by meeting at 3.30pm
Seomra Spraoi, 10 Belvedere Court,
off Gardiner Street

Join us in showing solidarity with the masses in Iran who have taken to the streets in outrage against the rigged elections. This is a revolt against a deeply repressive state. The situation is Iranian is on a knife-edge. Hopi supporters are in daily contact with Iran. We are pushing for maximum solidarity from the working class movement here in Ireland to progressive forces in Iran. The upsurge against theocratic rule should not derailed by reformists from within the Iranian regime itself. Moussavi was himself a demagogue during his 8 years in power. He is not a solution but a danger to the struggle for mass democracy.

Hi Anne
I want to thank you for you interest to the issues of Iran and Iranian people. I have recently come to Ireland to study in NUI Maynooth. Unfortunately I was not aware of today's event, so I missed it, but I'll try to join the next one.
I just wanted to let you know that Iranian people around the world are arranging one worldwide demonstration in Sunday afternoon at 5:00, so if it is possible, it is better to move the time to Sunday, but if not, I'll see you on Saturday.
You can find the info about the other one in here:
P.S. You can email me at

Hi Vahid

I feel ashamed of all those Iraninans who are organising demonstration against thei own
legitimately elected president
at the behest of US imperialist
and Zionists,both awoved enemies
of Iran.

When Bush bin Satan was re-elected
why were there no demonstration
against this demon?A stinky and
filthy man responsible for the
death of millions and millions in
Afghanistan,Iraq and Palestine.

What crime this man,Ahmadinejad
has committed,that entire Jewish
and pro-jewish lobbies have arrayed
against him?His only crime is that
he has the courage to defy US imperialists,has refused to halt
uranium enrichment programme.

Iranians much influenced by Zionist
media have lost all sense of proportion and have become a pawn
in the hands of US imperialists
and Zionist beasts.

Boycot such paid for demonstration
organised by US puppets and Zionist

I want to thank you for organizing this. I live in the U.S. and I could not find or start a vigil in my area. I have instead, created a Flickr group with photos of protests around the world, to show the people of Iran that we are all watching, and that the world supports them. If anyone took photos at your demonstration, please upload them to my group, and pass the word. Thank you!
