Iran protests in London, yesterday and tomorrow.

Starting with tomorrow:

United4Iran lists worldwide events continuing over the weekend and into next week, including a protest in London tomorrow.
United4Iran London will hold a peaceful silent march in protest of the human and civil rights violations taking place in Iran, and to magnify the voices of those most needing and deserving to be heard. 
The march will take place on February 13th at 13:00 and start from Piccadilly Circus. 50 people will walk from Piccadilly Circus to Leicester Square, where they will remain for up to half an hour, before proceeding to the North Terrace of the Trafalgar Square, where they will demonstrate until 16:00.
The purpose of the march is to raise awareness for the continuing human rights violations against the peaceful protesters and members of the civil society and the press. This event is particularly relevant as Iran plans to celebrate the 31st anniversary of the founding of the Islamic Republic, while protesters in Iran and around the world hope to draw attention to Iran’s failing human rights record.
Please join us and on this Valentines weekend, why not give part of your heart to a people whose own government has forgotten.

And as for yesterday:

Here are images from yesterday’s protest outside the Iranian Embassy in London from Potkin AzarmehrFrancis Sedgemore, and Iran Solidarity. Also gratifying to see, pictures and video of the protest against a pro-regime event at UCL, coincidentally the same London university at the centre of the underwear bomber case.
