Despite heavy rain, close to 200 freedom loving Iranians gathered at the Iranian Plaza at Yonge and Steeles to protest for freedom and democracy in Iran. The Iranian Lion and Sun flag was flying high as far as the eye could see. The demonstrators shouted slogans such as “Down with the Islamic Regime” “Down with the Dictator” “Freedom for Iran” “Democracy for Iran” and “human rights for Iran.” The demonstration started at 6pm at the plaza. At around 6:30 protestors started march down Yonge street while shouting the slogans mentioned above. The Walk lasted close to 2.5 hours. It should also be mentioned that Yonge street was full of cars adorned with our beloved Lion and Sun flag beeping their horns and showing support for the protestors. Once again there was a great air of comradery between the protestors.
There will be a protest tomorrow Sunday June 21st at 2:00pm by the Canadian Parliament on Queens Park. For everyone who can, please attend as this will be a very important demonstration.
In solidarity with Iranian people who have risked their lives by coming out and fighting against the Islamic Regime.
Down with the Islamic Regime
Long Live Freedom
