UANI Applauds Gotham Hall for Denying President Ahmadinejad a Platform for Propaganda
New York, NY - UANI applauds Gotham Hall for denying President Ahmadinejad a platform for propaganda and for refusing to host the Iranian delegation.
In a statement, David Miller, a representative of Apple Core Holdings, the parent company of Gotham Hall said "Once we learned of the nature of this event and the attendance of President Ahmadinejad, we took steps to cancel the event."
UANI President Ambassador Mark Wallace said of Gotham Hall's decision "UANI applauds Gotham Hall for taking a stand and choosing not to provide President Ahmadinejad with a bullhorn for his propaganda. Gotham Hall made a decision to align itself with the international community to isolate Iran and its thuggish theocracy. We thank our supporters for helping us in our mission to disrupt Iran's ability to do business as long as it continues to finance an illegal nuclear weapons program. We call on other American and international businesses to follow the example of Gotham Hall."
