UANI launched a Times Square billboard to coincide with President Ahmadinejad's visit to New York for the UN General Assembly

04:38 PM Sep 27, 2012

The billboard, located at the corner of 49th Street and 7th Avenue in Times Square, has a picture of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over the New York City skyline and reads "SHOULD NOT BE IN N.Y.: SHOULD NOT BE IN THE UN: VISIT UANI.COM"  

The billboard highlights UANI's call for the UN to suspend Iran's rights and privileges given its continued defiance of the UN's Charter and international law. In a Wall Street Journal Op-Ed last month, "Iran Doesn't Belong in the U.N. or IMF," UANI CEO, Ambassador Mark D. Wallace, and UANI President, Ambassador Kristen Silverberg, joined Ambassador John Bolton in calling on the UN to enforce provisions of its charter allowing for the removal of a member that consistently violates the charter's principles.

Speaking about UANI's Times Square billboard, Ambassador Wallace said:

Ahmadinejad and his entourage are not welcome in New York City, and they also shouldn't be welcomed at the UN. Iran should not be treated as a regular member of the UN in good standing given its repeated defiance of international law.

The U.N. Charter provides for the expulsion of any member which has persistently violated its principles. It is time for UN member states to enforce their own principles, and take away Iran's rights and privileges until it stops brutalizing its own people, sponsoring terrorists, and pursuing an illegal nuclear weapons program.
