NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) today ran ads in Metro New York newspapers that highlight its Taxi of Tomorrow Campaign. The ads have a circulation of over 350,000 in the New York metropolitan area. Click here to view the image of the ad.
Referring to the ad campaign, UANI President, Ambassador Mark D. Wallace, said:
UANI has called on New York City to refuse to award the Taxi of Tomorrow contract to companies that do business in Iran. We call on all New Yorkers to ensure the Mayor’s office does not award the Taxi of Tomorrow contract to companies that do business in Iran.
UANI in January called on New York City to refuse to award the lucrative Taxi of Tomorrow contract to companies that conduct business in Iran. The Taxi of Tomorrow campaign is a competition designed to select New York City's exclusive taxi cab for a decade. In the ad, UANI declares, “No company that does business with Iran should do business with our city!”
Two of the three finalists for the lucrative contract, Japan's Nissan Motor Company ("Nissan") and Turkey's Karsan Otomotiv ("Karsan"), do business in Iran. Through their respective business operations, Nissan and Karsan are facilitating the Iranian government's ability to engage in behavior that runs directly counter to the security and values of the people of New York City.
