Pictures and Video from Demonstration in Paris Against Recent Executions

May 10, 2010

On May 9, 2010, an unprompted demonstration began at the Place du Trocadéro (Paris, France) and ended at the Iranian embassy to draw attention to the five executions earlier that day in Evin prison, Tehran.

Approximately 150 to 200 people gathered at 4:00pm, many holding flags with the word Iran in place of the Islamic Republic’s national stamp.

At 5:00pm, the demonstrators arrived outside the Iranian embassy. When they were metres away from the gate, a number of the outraged protesters wrote revolutionary slogans and names of prisoners on the embassy walls and damaged the embassy’s surveillance equipment. A car belonging to an embassy worker was also spray-painted with slogans.

To ward off the demonstrators, the employees of the embassy sprayed water by using a hose from the embassy garden.

During the protest, eleven demonstrators were taken to the police station located in 18th arrondissement, Paris.
