Iran marks 12th anniversary of nationwide rallies held to support Islamic establishment
Iranian people have staged nationwide rallies to mark the 12th anniversary of huge demonstrations held across the country in support of the Islamic establishment.
The demonstrators, from various social strata, took to the streets in the capital Tehran and other cities on Thursday, carrying placards and chanting slogans in solidarity with the Islamic establishment.
The event commemorated the 12th anniversary of the 2009 nationwide pro-establishment rallies on the ninth of the Persian calendar month of Dey, which falls on December 30.
The nationwide demonstrations have since been lauded as Dey 9 epic.
‘Sedition failed to confuse Iranian people’
Iran’s First Vice President Mohammad Mokhber took part in the Thursday ceremony in Tehran.
Addressing the ceremony, the representative of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, Abdollah Haji-Sadeqi said the “darkness induced by the sedition failed to make people confused about the realities.”
He added that by taking part in post-election demonstrations in support of the Islamic establishment, people “put the last nail in the coffin of a sedition whose master plan was made in more than a decade and even its name had been mentioned by one of the [US] senators during a session of Senate four years earlier.”
“The Islamic Revolution is no more limited to Iran. It has conquered key bunkers of the world and the enemy is going downhill toward its final defeat. The Zionist regime is erecting a wall around itself and thinks of ways that would help it survive. An enemy, which once was dealing with Palestinians’ stone, is now unable to head off their missiles,” he added.
