The local Iranian community plans to rally again
in solidarity with the Iranian people during a "global day of action" planned for 1 pm this Saturday July 25 in Pioneer Courthouse Square.
Participants will link arms across Pioneer Courthouse Square to form a human chain — a demonstration that rally organizer Goudarz Eghtedari says is to show support for the "Green Movement" in Iran.
The 1 pm rally is one of 50 planned in cities worldwide. The international human rights network, United for Iran
, coordinated the date for the Global Day of Action with the support of Amnesty International and Reporters without Borders.
