Pittsburgh Peace Vigil Iran Elections

Pittsburgh Peace Vigil Iran Elections

Please bring a flashlight

Date: Tuesday, June 23, 2009.
Time: 8:00-9:30 PM (dark).
Location: Market Square, downtown Pittsburgh, PA.

Details: This will be a quiet/silent show of support for the historic democratic movement now underway in Iran, and for those who have given their lives in the name of their cause.

The intention of this grassroots vigil is to show support for the human right to peaceful assembly and to protest election fraud worldwide.

We have invited and coordinated this vigil with members of the local Iranian community, a broad and diverse group, many of whom have indicated a show of support and awareness by non-Iranians is welcome and will be in attendance.

Remember: Please bring a flashlight.

Dogs must be on a leash and under control; owner responsible for clean-up.
