What is The 18th of Tir (July 9th)?

This is the Symbolic Movement against the Dictatorial Islamic Clerical Regime in Iran!

The 18th of Tir (July 9th) is an eternal epic poem of the freedom-fighters' brave and righteous movement against the tyrannical Islamic Clerical regime. Nearly four years has passed since the painful and horrifying attack of the Islamic authorities against innocent freedom-demanding students. This attack was seen as so brutal and so violent that it brought back painful memories of the Mongolian invasion of Iran. The 18th of Tir is seen as a remembrance of those, like Ezzat Ebrahim-Nejad, who in the path of freedom have regretfully lost their lives. The National Union of Iranian Students and Graduates (NUISG), who have suffered the most, were subjected to brutal and inhuman torture by the hands of the dictatorial Islamic regime.

Background Overview:

It is the irony of history that in the land of Cyrus The Great, the birthplace of the first charter of the “Rights of Nations” and the “Declaration of Human Rights” over 2500 years ago, there is today no respect for human and civil rights by the Islamic regime. Cyrus, who was exceptionally tolerant of local religions and local customs and against slavery, is famous for freeing the 42,000 Jewish captives and allowing them to return to their homeland. His name appears twenty two times in the Bible. Were it not for Cyrus, it seems at least possible that the Jewish people would have become extinct in the fifth century BC and we would have never received their great contributions to mankind. Unfortunately, present day Iran is ruled by a small group of Islamic Mafia Clerics who are the embodiment of evil and have no respect for Human Rights in this land which is the birthplace of Darius The Great, Babak, Avicenna (Ibn Sina), Ferdowsi, Khayyam, Hafaz, Saadi and Rumi. We need the help and full support from the freedom-loving people of the world to help change this regime with no / minimum bloodshed.

Ms. Zahra Kazemi, a Canadian-Iranian photojournalist, was arrested on June 23, 2003 and was savagely and barbarically beaten to death by Islamic regime officials. News agencies reported that Ms. Kazemi's body was buried on July 23, 2003, in Shiraz, Iran, contrary to the wishes of her family, and formal request from the Canadian government. (For further Information visit: http://activistchat.com/petition2.html)

Over the past 25 years the Islamic regime's agents, courts, judges and vigilantes have all committed acts of: murder, stoning, torture, assault, theft, destruction of property, arson, perjury, falsification of testimonials and material evidence, illegal surveillance, kidnapping, rape, blackmail, fraud, obstruction of justice, conspiracy to commit all of the above crimes, cover-ups and every other form of butchery and depredation.

Dear Kian,

I've got an inquiry into whether 18Tir falls on July 9th or 8th in accordance with the Persian calendar. I would appreciate your help since i'm not very knowledgable in the Persian calendar.

Thanks in advance!
