Americans Protest In Solidarity With Iranians

Posted: Updated:

The streets of Iran have been filled with chants since protesters took to the streets two weeks ago in the aftermath of an election with considerable irregularities. Days after the election, Iranian Americans, along with other concerned citizens, demonstrated across America in solidarity with those demanding a fair election in Iran.

Of the over four million Iranians who live outside Iran, a large percentage of them live in the US, over one and a half million according to a recent study. Of those in California, the vast majority live in the greater Los Angeles area, where there has been a nearly constant vigil, with participants dressed in green garb and holding signs that read, "Where Is My Vote?"

This weekend, again, those green-shirted protesters were out in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and elsewhere to show that their support for the Iranian people continues even now, more than two weeks after the disputed election.
