A crowd of protesters gathered in Los Angeles in June, 2009 to demonstrate against the Iranian government. Perhaps as a prelude to what was to engulf other Middle Eastern countries like Egypt and Libya, Iranian citizens were on the streets to dispute the presidential election that many claimed was a complete fraud. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was reelected despite a wide turnout for opposition candidates. A massive government crackdown, chaos and civil unrest engulfed the country and soon spread throughout the world, including the thousands of demonstrators who held signs and chanted slogans in front of the Federal Building in Los Angeles, California. Here’s hoping true freedom and fair elections find their way to Iran.
