Time Magazine, May 02, 2010 - UANI Calls On New York Hotels to Refuse To Host Ahamdinejad And Iranian Delegation During United Nations Conference
United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) yesterday called on New York area hotels to refuse to host President Ahamdinejad and the Iranian Delegation during the upcoming conference at the United Nations, scheduled to begin in New York City on May 3, 2010.
Speaking about UANI’s hotel campaign, UANI President Ambassador Mark D. Wallace said: President Ahamdinejad and his regime are the world’s leading state sponsors of terrorism; they defy international law in developing a nuclear weapon and brutally repress their own people.
No American-based venue should host this outlaw regime. We call on all New York-area venues to help isolate and condemn the Iranian regime by refusing to host President Ahamdinejad and his cohorts.
UANI, in September 2009, called on all New York City hotels to refuse to host President Ahamdinejad and the Iranian delegation. As a result President Ahamdinejad was confined to the one venue that agreed to host him.
UANI calls on all New York City hotels to join with multinational corporations such as General Electric, Huntsman, Caterpillar, Ingersoll Rand, KPMG, Ernst & Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Siemens, ENI, Petronas, Daimler, Royal Dutch Shell, Trafigura and Glencore, all of which have recently either severed their business ties with the Iranian regime or announced that they will not pursue new business with Iran.
