Rally in Your City in Support of Iranian People
Posted by iranrevolution on July 21, 2009
I am going to announce this post constantly untill July 25 . Why? Because that is the day that ALL of you are going out on the streets of your cities and support the Iranian People. No excuses please. This is the least we can do!
Here is a good youtube video to get you in the mood of the things (sorry it just refuses to be embedded)
Where? All over the place. You can visit the organising site for loads of info or else just find your cities right here. OBSERVE that if you have Freegate antifilter on, you have to turn it off before visiting the organising site or else you won’t get in (God know only why). So plan nothing else during the rally and get yourself, your family, your friends, your co-workers, your neighbours and anyone else you know to the rally. Be assured that everyone you know believe in Freedom and if you just ask, you might get more positive answers than you’ve imagined.
