niac_tritaMohamad Nourizad, a prominent dissident in Iran, who was scheduled to speak at the NIAC’s annual conference, responded to the Iranian-Americans’ demand and cancelled his speech. He announced the cancellation on his website and Facebook page

Mr. Nourizad wrote, “I was invited to speak at the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) conference today. I planned to talk about the irony of Human Rights issues in Iran. Although NIAC’s name suggests that the Iranian-Americans play a key role in this organization, but I found out that majority of my compatriots, for various reason, avoid this group. I respect the will of the majority of Iranians and will deliver my speech on Facebook instead of NIAC’s panel.
