Millions of Iranians Commemorate 2009 Pro-Islamic Republic Rallies

On Saturday, people from all walks of life took part in demonstrations and ceremonies in several Iranian cities to mark the "Dey 9 epic," which refers to the historic rallies held on the ninth day of the Persian calendar month of Dey.

In the capital, Tehran, people gathered at the the Imam Khomeini Grand Prayer Grounds, while other cities were the scene of demonstrations to mark the occasion.

Massive rallies on December 30, 2009, put an end to a period of occasional street riots and unrest that erupted after the presidential election, and gained notoriety later as ‘the sedition of 88'.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei has on various occasions warned against plots hatched by enemies to target the origin and identity of the Islamic Establishment.
