Millions of Iranians Hold Rallies Marking 40 Years of Islamic Revolution

‘Down with USA’ Aimed at US Regime Rulers, not People: Iran’s Leader

Alwaght- Millions of Iranians held rallies on Monday across the country to mark the 40th anniversary of the victory of Islamic Revolution amid US-led sanctions and plots.

February 11 (22 Bahman) is the climax of the Ten-Day Dawn celebrations held from February 1, the day when Imam Khomeini returned from exile in 1979 thus ending 2500 years of monarchy.

Every year on this day, the nation turns out in their millions across the country to announce their support for the revolution which replaced the US-backed regime with an Islamic Republic.

On Monday, demonstrators in many cities braved the cold winter weather as they descended on main city and town squares to renew their allegiance to the country's Islamic principles at a time of rising economic and political pressure.

Last year, the United States unilaterally abandoned an international nuclear pact with Iran and re-imposed its toughest sanctions ever, in a move which is viewed as a regime change attempt against the Islamic Republic.

US national security adviser John Bolton had said the outcome of the country's policy review should be to determine that Iran's revolution would not last until its 40th birthday. "And that’s why, before 2019, we here will celebrate in Tehran!” he had told a terrorist MKO convention in Paris in 2017.

On Monday, hundreds of thousands of people headed to the iconic Azadi (Freedom) Square in Tehran amid chants of "Death to America."

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said on Friday the Iranian nation will keep chanting "Death to America" as long as the United States remains evil.

Addressing a mammoth gathering at Azadi Square, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said, “The enemies will never achieve their vicious goals”.

Stating that the Iranian nation freed itself from dictatorship, colonialism, and dependencies, the President said, “The Iranian nation was successful in establishing the Islamic Revolution in this land”.

“This year, we are holding Feb. 11 celebrations when the United States, the Zionists and the reactionaries in the region have put our people under the pressure of sanctions,” he continued.

Rouhani added, “People know it well that 205 years ago, a great part of Iran’s northern parts and Caucasus separated from Iran during the disloyal Qajar kings”.

“Even 47 years ago, seven years before the victory of the Islamic Revolution during the time of the disloyal Pahlavi regime, an important part of southern Iran that was called Iran’s 14th province in geography books, separated from the country”.

He continued, “But 38 years ago when the world powers incited Saddam to attack Iran with the help of the weapons made by the west and the east, the money of reactionaries in the region and soldiers of many other countries, brave Iranians resisted against the entire world with its brave children, Army, IRGC, Basij, Police and all people”.

Stressing that the path of the Islamic Revolution will continue as strong as the past 40 years, President said, “People’s strong presence in streets around the country, including Tehran means that the plots of the enemies in the past one year have been foiled”.
