Iranian-Americans March Across Brooklyn Bridge to Protest Sham Ahmadinejad Election

Driving across the Brooklyn Bridge yesterday, we saw hundreds of Iranian Americans -- carrying long green scroll -- marching to denounce Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is speechifying about his so-called democratic reelection at the the United Nations this week.

The color green has the symbol of opponents of Ahmadinejad since the election last June. According to the Wall Street Journal, the scroll is one mile long and holds signatures from across the world saying "Ahmadinejad is not Iran's president."

The march, which began in Cadman Plaza Park in Brooklyn, was one of a series of events organized by Where Is My Vote-NY, NORCAL4Iran, Where Is My Vote-DC, and Cycling for Human Rights in Iran.
