  • 4 November rallies will be held in over a thousand Iranian villages, towns and cities

The marches and rallies on Sunday, 4th November, marking the 'National Day of Fighting Global Arrogance', will begin at 9:30 am throughout the length and breadth of the Islamic Republic of Iran, in more than a thousand villages, towns and cities.

Iran news: According to an Iran Press report, Nosratullah Lotfi Deputy Head of Coordination Council of Islamic Development Organization, emphasised that the march and rally in Tehran will be held in front of the former US embassy building, popularly known as the 'den of espionage', with the top commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), Major General Mohammad Ali Ja'fari, making a keynote speech.

Lotfi added: "The main march and rally in Tehran will take place in Taleghani Street, in front of the former US embassy building, the same place where exactly 39 years ago enthusiastic, aware and revolutionary students shattered the image of the US once and for all by taking over the 'den of espionage'.

In further remarks, the Deputy Head of Coordination Council of Islamic Development Organization said: "This year's rallies have a special significance, more so than previous years, for a number of reasons, and God willing, the resilient and vigilant Iranian people, from all walks of life and from every background, with their massive, solid and timely presence on Sunday in front of the former US embassy, will show to the world their unity and solidarity, creating another epic in the history of the Islamic Republic."

Meanwhile in earlier remarks on Saturday morning to a gathering of university and school students, the Leader of the Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei stressed that the Iranian nation 'slapped US in the face' in 1979, when in November of that year, revolutionary university students climbed over the wall and took over the US embassy, the 'den of espionage'.  

The Leader added: "In America's long-running economic war against Iran, what has happened is not to America's liking. Iran has moved towards self-sufficiency, with emphasis on manufacture and production at home, manufacturing everything we need inside the country. Today, young university graduates have set up manufacturing units, Hi-Tech knowledge-based companies, and are engaged in important work for the nation." 211/103
