Leader to deliver live speech on 1978 Qom anti-Shah protests

TEHRAN, Jan. 08 (MNA) – The Leader of the Islamic Revolution is to deliver a live speech tomorrow on the occasion of the 1978 Qom demonstrations against the West-backed dynasty of Pahlavi.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei is to deliver a live speech on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. on the occasion of the anniversary of the January 9th, 1978 uprising against the West-backed Pahlavi regime.

In previous years, Ayatollah Khamenei used to receive thousands of people to mark the anniversary of the 1978 Qom protest, however, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event will be broadcast from Iranian national TV.

1978 Qom protests refer to the demonstrations against the Pahlavi dynasty ignited by the Iran and Red and Black Colonization article published in Ettela'at newspaper on 7 January 1978.

Many believe that this demonstration was the start of a wave that ended the Pahlavi regime one year later.
