(Persia Digest) – The 4th of November has been named the “Day of Fighting Global Arrogance” in Iran. A rally has taken place on this day in the capital and across the country.

The march began outside the former US Embassy in Tehran, where crowds gathered to listen to a speech by the IRGC Commander-in-Chief, Mohammad-Ali Jafari.

Slogans this year included “Far from us is disgrace” and “Death to America”.

The “Day of Fighting Global Arrogance” bell also rang in 105 schools across Iran.

Over 4000 reporters and photographers covered the 4 November ceremonies in the country. In Tehran 120 foreign reporters and over 600 Iranian photographers, cameramen, and reporters also covered the event.

On the sidelines of the ceremony, a picture of the Israeli Prime Minister was placed on a dartboard as target. The crowds also said Netanyahu’s recent claims about Iran’s secret nuclear facilities in Turghuzabad were ridiculous.

Placards were carried by the participants in the march with the words of the Supreme Leader of Iran, reading “There will be no war and no talks”.

Persia Digest (PD) reported that 4 November has been named as the “Day of Fighting Global Arrogance” on the Iranian calendar. A march is held every year against the US and Israel on this day. Three events in three different years took place in Iran on 4 November that led to the Islamic Revolution. On 4 November 1964, Mohammad-Reza Shah’s agents arrested Ayatollah Khomeini in Ghom and exiled him to Turkey. On 4 November 1978, students protesting US meddling in Iranian affairs marched on the streets of Tehran and were shot at and killed by the Shah’s forces. On 4 November 1979, Muslim students supporting Ayatollah Khomeini took over the US Embassy in Iran to prevent another coup similar to the one that took place against the Mosaddegh Government in 1953.
