Iranians to mark 2009 rallies in support of Islamic establishment

Iranians to mark 2009 rallies in support of Islamic establishment
IRAN  - The Iranian nation is set to commemorate the anniversary of the 2009 mass rallies that were held in support of the Islamic Republic and put an end to post-election unrest back then, Press TV reported.

On December 30, 2009, millions of Iranians held rallies in the capital Tehran and several other cities to condemn the foreign-orchestrated unrest, which had erupted following the presidential elections earlier that year.

People were especially angered by incidents that had taken place days earlier in Tehran, where a group of opportunists had offended the sacred values of the nation on the day of Ashura, the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (PBUH), the third Shia Imam.

The unrest was orchestrated by Mehdi Karroubi and Mir Hossein Musavi, two of the candidates who had lost the election. They claimed that the results had been rigged. Both remain under house arrest on charges of provoking the public and harming national security.
