The following are some of the international coverages of the solidarity campaign by the National Council of Resistance of Iran:

The National Council of the Resistance of Iran (NWRI) was founded in 1981 as a movement against Iran’s theocratic state.
Javad Dabiran, from the NWRI foreign committee, told The Local: "We see it as our human responsibility to come here today - as Iranians, Muslims, and people who have suffered under Islamic fundamentalism in Iran for years.
"It’s especially important in moments like these, when terrorists try to abuse Islam, that tolerant Muslims also take a stand," Dabiran said.

"I came here to say as a Muslim that none of this has anything to do with Islam. They want to reach their goals by killing people and abusing Islam."
