Mission Free Iran Stands in Solidarity with Egyptian Uprising to Demand Freedom, Dignity, Equality in Egypt

Mission Free Iran stands in solidarity with the uprising people in Egypt, who demand real democracy, freedom, equality, and economic and social justice.

To demonstrate our support, we participated in today’s (January 29) protest at the Egyptian Embassy; photos from the event are below. Mission Free Iran and Action for Democracy and Human Rights in the Middle East have also called for a demonstration in solidarity with freedom-loving Egyptians on Sunday, January 30 at 3pm in front of the Egyptian Embassy in Washington DC.

Sunday’s protest in support of people in Egypt will take place after our noon demonstration at the offices of the Islamic Republic, against the regime’s incessant executions, and in support of political prisoners in Iran. We will especially have Zahra Bahrami in our hearts; she was a Dutch citizen and a political prisoner executed in Iran this morning.

CODE PINK and ANSWER Coalition turned out to support the Egyptian uprising, but have opposed the Iranian peoples' uprising. The leadership of these organizations has participated in regime-sponsored propaganda junkets to Iran and accepted invitations to breakfast with one of the world's bloodiest dictators, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. -- January 29, 2011 protests against the Egyptian government and in solidarity with Egyptian people, Egyptian Embassy, Washington DC

  1. Nice work. And nice report. I am afraid Mubarak is staying mainly due to protection of our annual $1.2 billion investment on the Egyptian army; the big collateral damage to ousting Mubarak is what will happen to all of those weapons and war equipment if Egypt falls. There is a reason why building armies is not a good strategy because now this popular and just uprising will have to subside.
    I am sure knowledge of recent history is also influencing Washington’s decision, that is lessons learned and being learned because of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran.
