TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - In Tehran, the capital city, a large mass of general people as well as university and school students congregated before the former US embassy in Iran (today known as US Den of Spionage) demonstrating their anger and hate toward the world's arrogant powers specially US.
This year's slogan is 'Hayhat Minna al-Zillah' a slogan of Imam Hussain in Ashura, which means 'we never accept humiliation'.
Beside that they chant their roeutin slogan 'Down with USA' to show their abhorance against the bloodsheding country.
The most spectacular thing in that rally is the attendance of student unions nationwide.
On November 4, 1979, a group of university students took over the embassy, which they believed had turned into a center of espionage, plotting to overthrow the nascent Islamic Republic, and held 52 American diplomats for 444 days.
Documents found at the mission corroborated claims by the revolutionary students that Washington had been using the compound to hatch plots against Iran.
The late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, hailed the takeover as a “second revolution” after the 1979 Islamic Revolution toppled the Shah of Iran, who was a close ally of the US in Iran.
