Tehran Times Political Desk
TEHRAN (MNA) -- Iranians on Wednesday went to the streets and staged rallies to commemorate the 13th of Aban, the national day of struggle against global arrogance and the anniversary of university students’ 1979 seizure of the U.S. embassy, which was called the Den of Spies.

At the end of the demonstration, referring to the sayings of the founder of the Islamic Republic, the late Imam Khomeini, who called the seizure of the U.S. Den of Spies the “second revolution”, demonstrators issued a resolution in which they underlined the Islamic Republic of Iran’s right to access to civilian nuclear technology and announced that the voice of the Majlis is the voice of the alert and aware Iranians who are prepared to defend Iran. They also stated that as long as the United States continues hegemonic policies such as interfering in the domestic affairs of other countries, there would be no room for any kind of negotiations or relations between Iran and the U.S. The statement said, “The United States should recognize the legal rights of Iran to develop nuclear technology and should stop interfering in the domestic affairs of Iran and other Islamic countries, and we announce from now on that the era of U.S. domination is over.”

Another part of the resolution read, “We announce again that the United States is the greatest supporter of terrorism, i.e. the Zionist regime, and the main obstacle in the way of recognizing the legitimate right of the Palestinians to rule their own territories,” adding that the world should not pay the price for U.S. unilateralism because the world, the Islamic world, and particularly the crisis-stricken Middle East needs peace, security, and stability more than anything else.

In conclusion, the students’ statement underlined the fact that the Islamic Republic and the late Imam can never be separated, and said that the Islamic system, velayat-e faqih (rule by the supreme jurisprudent), and religious democracy are the eternal heritage of the late Imam Khomeini and Iranians were hereby renewing their commitment to the great causes of the late Imam Khomeini."
