RNA - Speaking to reporters in the southern city of Kerman on Friday, Larijani said the high turnout in the rallies is a sign of the Islamic Establishment’s power.


The people’s massive participation in the demonstrations this year once again was written in the history of the Islamic Revolution, the Iranian parliamentarian noted.


“The message of the massive presence is that the Iranian people are steadfastly committed to revolutionary causes,” Larijani said.


Iranian people took to the streets on Friday for nationwide rallies marking the 38th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.


The countrywide demonstrations, involving people from different walks of life, began at 9 a.m. local time (0530 GMT).


People in capital Tehran, more than 1,000 other cities and towns, and in 4,000 villages have attended the rallies with flags of Iran and banners in support of the Islamic Republic.


In the capital, enthusiastic demonstrators marched across 10 main routes to reach the Azadi (Liberty) Square to cherish the memory of the Islamic Revolution victory.


Hundreds of foreign guests, including scientific, political, and influential figures from the European, African, Asian, and American countries have travelled to Iran to witness the event, which is also a great opportunity for reporters.


More than 6,000 cameramen and journalists, including 250 foreigners, cover the massive rallies in Tehran and other cities.


High-ranking Iranian officials have also attended the rallies along with other people to rejoice at the auspicious ceremony.
