Dozens Rally For Peace In Iran

Several dozen Iranians and local residents of all nationalities filled Thomas Merton Square in downtown Louisville for a peace vigil today.Dressed mostly in green, the group waved flags and held signs in support of a fair presidential election and an end to the violent crackdown on demonstrators in Iran.Kamran Djavid says the massive protests in his home country have been brewing for years."Iranians are better than the government they have and they don't appreciate being labeled terrorists and so forth," he says. "Actually, if it was up to them, they'd be one of the most progressive peoples in the world."Djavid says he's pleased with the media coverage of the Iranian protest and the outpouring of support he's seen locally. He says there's ample support for more vigils in Louisville, but he's not sure when, or if, they will happen.
