London rally against execution of 5 political activists

Iran Solidarity UK took part in a protest organised by 8 different campaigns and organisations in London against the execution of the political activists Farzad Kamangar, Shirin Alam Houli, Farhad Vakili, Ali Heydarian and Mehdi Eslamian on Sunday 9 May in Iran. We gathered at 1pm in Trafalgar Square where several people gave speeches on the executions and the situation in Iran. At 2.30 the rally of about 120 people marched to the embassy of the IRI. On the way slogans like: Stop torture, stop murder in Iran! Free all political prisoners now! Down with the Islamic regime of Iran! were shouted. There was a lot of positive feedback from passersby. At the embassy the protest continued for another hour.
