Prime Minister Trudeau’s Statement on Nowruz

Today, we join Persian, Kurdish, Afghan, Zoroastrian, Bahá’í, Central Asian, and Ismaili communities in Canada and around the world to celebrate Nowruz and the arrival of spring. To mark this occasion, families and friends will join together around the haft-seen table to reflect on new beginnings, enjoy music and food, and appreciate life’s many gifts. Nowruz – which means ‘new day’ in Farsi – marks the beginning of spring and the New Year in the Persian calendar. It is a time to look back on the year behind us, and turn toward the year ahead with optimism and hope. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the values of harmony, peace, and acceptance, and recommit ourselves to putting them into practice. These celebrations remind us that diversity is our greatest strength. Today, we take time to honour the many communities that observe Nowruz, and their important contributions to building a better Canada. On behalf of our family, Sophie and I wish everyone celebrating a happy, prosperous, and healthy Nowruz. Har ruz-e' taan Nowrouz, Nowruz-e' taan pirouz.


Premier’s Statement on Nowruz

B.C. Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement celebrating Nowruz
Today we celebrate Nowruz, the beginning of spring and a new year. Nowruz invites us to learn from the past and look forward to the future. This joyful holiday is celebrated with good food and family gatherings by several communities in the Iranian Plateau, as well as in Afghanistan, Tajikistan and elsewhere. In the lead-up to Nowruz, many people jump over fire to burn away bad luck and bad health, and to welcome blessings into their lives. We are excited to join with people around the globe in celebration of this inclusive and joyful holiday – a day when everyone is invited to look to the future with hope. This year, for the first time in British Columbia’s history, we welcomed people celebrating Nowruz into the B.C. legislature, and set up our first-ever legislative Haft Seen, a table covered in symbols of health, happiness and prosperity. We have declared March 20, 2018, the day of Nowruz. We wish all those celebrating Nowruz, across Canada and around the world, a joyous spring and a prosperous new year.
“Nowruz-e' taan Pirouz.”

Khod Rahaagar, the bulletin of Hezb-e' Iran-e' Aabaad, argues that inoculating Iran against reproduction of dictatorship & winning the next revolution, is predicated on forming organized political parties. For the best analysis, read their PDF bulletin or listen to their podcast.
