During the 2010 UNGA, UANI effectively quarantined President Ahmadinejad to The Hilton Manhattan East Hotel, the one hotel in New York that agreed to accommodate the Iranian delegation. UANI launched a boycott of all Hilton Hotels properties and held a rally outside of his hotel. Responding to UANI pressure, the Hilton Manhattan East has decided not to host Ahmadinejad for the 2011 UNGA.
On May 2, UANI launched a campaign against the Millennium in response to its decision to host Ahmadinejad for the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference. Ahmadinejad exploited his appearance at the conference to rail against the West.
Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is in Manhattan this week to attend the United Nations General Assembly. Unfortunately, the Hilton Manhattan East hotel has agreed to host the Holocaust-denying president and his henchmen.
