In a defiant move, Iranian women commemorate 2006 International Women's Day

BOSTON, MA- Several hours ago, Iranian women held a rally in Laleh Park, Tehran to express their opposition to the fundamentalist regime in Iran.

Women chanted "Down with the regime", "Women's mission: Justice, Peace, and Equality".

Facing a great danger and threats from the Iran's anti-riot police, women gathered and sang Iranian National Anthem "O'Iran, Land of Glory and Gem".

Women's Forum Against Fundamentalism has learned many have been arrested and reports are still coming from Iran.

Enclosed are the photos received from the rally that was held several hours ago in Tehran, Iran. More details to come in a later statement.
