Mar 27, 2004
Hundreds of Iranians paraded in New York, today, in order to celebrate the Iranian cultural heritage and over 3000 years of contribution to the World's civilization. This is was the first time that such event was taking place by Iranians especially in a city healing from its wounds inflicted by Islamist terrorists on September 11, 2001.
During this unprecedented two hours event, hundreds of Iranian Women, Men, boys and girls holding the banned "Lion & Sun" flags and chanting the banned "Oh Iran!" National anthem, marched, danced and exposed different aspects of Iran's cultural heritage for thousands of residents gathered to support them.
New York policemen and firefighters joined the Iranians by offering their assisstance for security and orchestra which played the "Oh Iran!"
It's to note that several self called American-Iranian organizations and notorious political brokers, such as Houshand Amir-Ahmadi of AIC, had tried, hard, to avoid the use of the "Lion and Sun" flags by the participants, during several meetings held prior to today's parade, but they were, as usual, ignored by the participants who used the parade to show as well their deep believe in the illegitimacy of the Islamic republic regime and their strong support of Iran's National and Freedom aspirations. http://www.daneshjoo.org/smccdinews/article/publish/article_4166.shtml

The banned Lion and Sun flag is flown by all opposition groups. The first thing that will be changed back will likely be the flag.
"Houshand Amir-Ahmadi of AIC, had tried, hard, to avoid the use of the "Lion and Sun" flags by the participants,..."
We all know which side he's on.
