A crowd of supporters for /*Mir Hossein Mousavi*/ gathered Saturday evening at United Nations Plaza to voice their displeasure.

Activists were protesting what they called the "selection" of current President /*Mahmoud Ahmadinejad*/ -- they say what happened in Iran was not an election.

It was a bilingual protest, with the group yelling in English, "No more lies, no more corruption," and then in Farsi, "Mousavi, return our vote."

A group of about 50 people began to gather around 5 p.m. and then grew to about 100 people by 6 p.m.

The event was organized by the International Alliance of Iranian Students and many of the participants were Iranian citizens who voted in the election.
