UANI
Announces Protest Against President Ahmadinejad
and the Iranian Delegation  

New York, NY -  United Against Nuclear Iran
(UANI) today announced a protest against President Ahmadinejad
and the
Iranian Delegation to be held on Thursday, September 23, 2010 from 2:00
- 6:00
pm.  The event will be held outside of the Hilton Manhattan
East Hotel on
the corner of 42nd Street and 2nd Avenue, and will take place during
President
Ahmadinejad's speech on the floor of the United Nations. 
 
WHAT:        
Protest Against
President Ahmadinejad and the Iranian Delegation
WHERE:      
Hilton Manhattan East Hotel,
Corner of 42nd Street and 2nd Avenue
DATE:          
Thursday, September 23, 2010
TIME:          
2:00
pm - 6:00 pm
 
Regarding the protest, UANI President, Ambassador Mark D. Wallace,
said:
 

President Ahmadinejad and
his regime are the world's leading
state sponsors of terrorism; they defy international law in developing
a
nuclear weapon and brutally repress their own people. During this
year's
annual meeting of the UN General Assembly, UANI will join with its
supporters
to protest President Ahmadinejad and the Iranian Delegation. 
The
international community should use this meeting of the UNGA to recommit
its
efforts to pressuring Iran to end its nuclear weapons program and
comply with
the IAEA. 

UANI
last week launched an ad campaign that seeks to raise awareness of the
dangers of a nuclear-armed Iran.  The campaign includes kiosks
and buses
in Manhattan as well as a billboard in Manhattan. In September
2009, UANI
called on all New York City hotels to refuse to host President
Ahmadinejad and
the Iranian delegation.  As a result President
Ahmadinejad was limited to the one venue that agreed to host
him.
