Millions of Iranians poured into the streets on Wednesday, February 11 to celebrate the 36th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
Carrying images of Imam Khomeini and the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, ralliers flocked to the main streets of the Iranian cities in order to show their allegiance to the Islamic Republic, 36 years after it toppled the monarchy of the US-backed Pahlavi regime.
People also chanted anti-US and anti-Israel slogans during the mass rallies.
Senior Iranian officials and 400 foreign guests also attended the rallies. In Tehran, some 265 foreign reporters and more than 1,500 Iranian journalists and photographers cover the news of the great event.
The Islamic Revolution victory, seen as the most important milestone in Iran’s recent history, liberated the country from the yoke of the hegemonic powers -with the ousted Shah as their stooge- and established a new political system based upon Islamic values and democracy.
