U.S. dignitaries support upcoming NY rally against Rouhani and for human rights in Iran

NCRI - On Tuesday, several prominent Americans participated in an online conference hosted by the Organization of Iranian-American Communities (OAIC). They expressed support for an upcoming rally by Iranian-Americans in New York aimed at denouncing Tehran’s egregious human rights record and the presence of the Iranian regime’s President Hassan Rouhani at the United Nations General Assembly.

The rally will take place outside the UN on September 28 and has been organized by the OIAC. It will coincide with Rouhani’s arrival at the UN General Assembly.

Panelists at Tuesday’s conference included Ken Blackwell, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Commission; Prof. Raymond Tanter, former White House National Security Council senior staffer; Prof. Sascha Sheehan, director of the graduate program in Negotiations and Conflict Management in the School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Baltimore; Prof. Rabbi Daniel Zucker, Chairman of Americans for Democracy in the Middle East; and Rev. Dr. Chris Looker of the 1st Presbyterian Church of Annandale, VA.
