On Saturday, June 12,
WASHINGTON DC WILL NOT LEAVE THIS REGIME A MOMENT OF PEACE!
Three protests against the regime throughout the day, all starting in front of the Iran Interests Section of the Pakistani Embassy
(2209 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington DC)
REPRESENT YOUR OWN POLITICS – BRING YOUR OWN SIGN/FLAG
MFI ENCOURAGES ATTENDANCE AT ALL 3 DEMOS
11am: protest organized by Human Rights & Secular Democracy for Iran (mostly Monarchist group, explicitly demands end to velayat-e faqih; attendees of these events are usually mostly monarchist, socialist, independent; all are welcome)
2pm: protest organized by Washington Left Unity (a small mixed group with left orientation, slogans and mission statement not known at time of publication; seems to be first event this org has held though the org has existed for many years in DC area; all are welcome)
3:30pm: protest organized by Solidarity Committee (uses “green” symbolism, has not demanded end to velayat-e faqih) and Iranian American Youth (on record as demanding end to theocracy). Attendees of events organized by Solidarity are from across the political spectrum and always demand end to Islamic Republic in chants; all are welcome.
