A wide coalition of organizations including the European Union of Jewish Students, Stop The Bomb, The Danish Zionist Federation and Iranian Dissidents was set to stage a demonstration outside the Danish Parliament on Thursday evening to protest the presence of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Copenhagen for the UN-sponsored climate talks. "We, as a united front, call upon all of the member states of the United Nations to take its responsibility to continued peace and stability across the world seriously, and stop the Iranian regime from developing nuclear weapons," read a statement by the coalition. "A failure on this front would result in disastrous consequences not only for the Middle East and Israel, whom Ahmadinejad has openly and repeatedly threatened to destroy, but the wider community of nations." The group urged the international community to take action and impose immediate crippling sanctions on Iran to ensure that "this preventable catastrophe is not realized." "We also call upon the international representatives of the UN climate conference to refuse to meet with Iranian officials as well as to stage a walkout during Ahmadinejad's address to the assembly," continued the statement.
