Chairman of Iran’s Expediency Council Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said that Iranians will give a strong response to the enemies’ plots and threats through their massive rallies on February 11 – marking the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
“The (Iranian) people will respond to the threats and sanctions (imposed) by the enemies of the Islamic Republic through their heroic turnout in February 11 rallies,” Hashemi Rafsanjani said at the beginning of a meeting of the Expediency Council in Tehran on Saturday.
He called on the Iranian nation to stage a massive turnout during the February 11 rallies, and said such participation will prove that the revolutionary thoughts of the Iranian people have remained fresh.
Every year on the occasion of the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution huge masses of ralliers from all walks of life converge on streets and squares all over the country to express their support for the causes and ideals of the Islamic Revolution.
In Tehran, demonstrators will gather at the Azadi Square, Tehran’s main square and the site of major national rallies over the past three decades.
This year’s rallies will mark the 33rd anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
