Washington, DC, Apr. 12 – Thousands of members of the Iranian Diaspora across the United States are expected to convene at Washington’s Constitution Hall to voice support for a democratic, secular republic in Iran, organisers said.

The political convention will be held with the support of leading American and international figures calling for a firm policy against the theocratic regime in Iran, according to organisers.

Members of the United States Congress, former U.S. government officials and parliamentarians from Europe and Canada are expected to address the half-day convention.

The convention is expected to reject both engagement of Iran and military intervention in dealing with the clerical state. It will rather press for active support for the Iranian opposition as the sole viable vehicle for democratic change in Iran

According to a general press release, issued by the convention’s organisers, “The platform of the convention includes positions to address the Tehran regime’s human rights abuses, support for terrorism and nuclear weapons program”.

The statement added, “The participants will urge U.S. and international policies that would echo President Bush’s remarks in his 2005
State of the Union Address:
And to the Iranian people, I
say tonight: As you stand for
your own liberty, America
stands with you”.

The event is called the “2005 National Convention for a Democratic, Secular Republic in Iran”, and is set to take place on April 14.

The website of the organising committee is www.2005nationalconvention.org .
