Call for Syria ‘election rallies’ at Iranian embassies around the world on 2 June 2014

Vote_Soleimani_English_noLOGOThe campaign group Naame Shaam is calling for Syria ‘election rallies’ in front of Iranian embassies and consulates worldwide on 2 June 2014, a day before the presidential elections in Syria.

We call on all friends and supporters of the Syrian revolution to demonstrate peacefully on this day with the aim of mocking Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and his Iranian master, the head of Sepah Qods Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

Sepah Qods is a division of Sepah Pasdaran (Iran’s Revolutionary Guards) that funds and controls al-Assad’s forces, as well as Hezbollah Lebanon and the Iraqi militias fighting in Syria.

Last week Naame Shaam launched a mock campaign to elect Gen. Soleimani as president of Syria and Bashar al-Assad as his deputy. [1]

The call for ‘election rallies’ in front of Iranian embassies and consulates on 2 June 2014 is part of this campaign. It will be fun!

Join us in mocking Bashar al-Assad and Qassem Soleimani and their sham elections!

Join us in demanding that the Iranian regime pulls Sepah Pasdaran, Hezbollah Lebanon and Iraqi militias out of Syria!
