The representative of the people of Tehran in the Assembly of Experts praised the “passionate and enemy-defeating presence” of the revolutionary and wilayah-supporting people of Iran.
He emphasized, “The message of this march to the enemies is that people still stand in defence of the Islamic Revolution and don’t allow foreign interference in the country.”
Ayatollah Amini also pointed out the passionate presence of the young generations born after the victory of the Islamic Revolution in the marches marking the 22nd of Bahman, saying, “The presence of the new and young generations in the country demonstrates that the Islamic Revolution continues with its power. The Iranian people have proven that they have stood up for their ideals until the end.”
On February 11th, various Iranian cities and towns were the scene of mass rallies celebrating the fortieth anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.
