Local Officials Attend Massive Rally Downtown

On Feb. 11, thousands of people attended a rally in front of Los Angeles City Hall in support of the Iranian people and the ongoing fight for civil rights and freedom under Iran’s Islamic Republic.

The protest was attended by members of the Iranian American community, public figures, students, human rights advocates, political activists, and more including Beverly Hills City Councilmember Sharona Nazarian, Mayor Karen Bass, and Congressman Adam Schiff. According to Nazarian, as many as 150,000 people came out to show support. 

“Let’s see action and regime change now,” Nazarian said, speaking to the crowd from a podium. Chants of “Zan, zendegi, azadi,” or “Woman, life, freedom,” echoed throughout. The date also marked the 44th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
