Nationwide Rallies Mark 1979 US Embassy Takeover

Iranians took to the streets across the country to commemorate the anniversary of the takeover of American Embassy in Tehran 38 years ago.
On November 4, 1979, a group of Iranian university students took over the US diplomatic mission, which they believed had turned into a center of espionage for overthrowing the then-nascent Islamic Republic.
Each year, Iranians rally outside the former US Embassy building, also known as the "Den of Espionage", to mark the event.
November 4, which falls on the 13th day of the Iranian calendar month of Aban, is also known as Students Day and National Day of Fight Against Global Arrogance.
In an address to the Saturday rally in Tehran, Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said the US foreign policy had failed, Press TV reported.
"American politicians and people are having second thoughts about their choice of president and acknowledge that the US has been defeated in implementing its foreign policy," Shamkhani said.
"The US has long been dealt blows by our country and our region, and thus regularly bares its warmongering teeth. And when a missile is tested thousands of kilometers away, after [issuing empty] threats, all their president does is send a tweet."
Shamkhani also noted that countries that have supported the US anti-Iran stance over the past years were themselves at a loss.
"Those who, either with the US or on their own, acted against the Islamic Republic over the past four decades ... suffer from domestic instability and have no standing in the region," the top official said.
The participants in the Saturday rallies issued a final statement, among other things, thanking Iranian government officials for their decisive and united position against the hostile US policies.
