UANI Campaign Calls on Iranian Officials to Renounce “Death to America” Slogan


UANI Ads Flood Area Surrounding United Nations Headquarters and Iranian Mission in New York as Iranian President Rouhani Speaks at United Nations General Assembly


New York, NYUnited Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) today announced the launch of an advertising campaign surrounding this year’s opening of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.
The campaign includes dozens of kiosk ads surrounding the United Nations Headquarters, ads running on 125 New York City taxi cabs, and geo-targeted digital ads serving millions of impressions in the area. The ads demand that when Iranian leaders, namely President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, are in New York, they renounce Iran’s hateful “Death to America” slogan. The kiosk ads, through a QR barcode that smartphones can scan on the posters, and the digital ads link to a petition page to hold Iranian leaders accountable.

The ads underscore the fact that “Death to America” is not just empty rhetoric, but means Death to Americans. As the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, the Iranian regime is responsible for the deaths of more than 1,000 American soldiers and civilians-not to mention scores of others worldwide.

Speaking today before the UN for the first time since the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear agreement, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will claim that Iran is a leading opponent of extremism and advocate of moderation. That notion is of course outlandish, as the regime harbors Al Qaeda operatives, enables Bashar al-Assad’s slaughter in Syria, collaborates with North Korea on nuclear and ballistic missile development, victimizes its own population and neighbors, and embraces “Death to America” as its motto.

For a detailed record of Iran’s day-to-day aggression, extremism, and human rights abuses since the signing of the JCPOA, view UANI’s JCPOA Accountability Tracker.
