Saturday's show of support came a day after Iran's foreign minister said a UN Security Council meeting called by the USA to discuss the unrest had proved a "blunder" by the administration of United States president Donald Trump.
"Things should be good in Iran now the sanctions have been lifted, but the mullahs' pockets are bottomless and everybody knows it", she told Reuters.

Iran's economic growth rebounded to more than 12% a year ago after sanctions were lifted under a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, but analysts say much of the windfall has come from renewed oil sales that generate few jobs.
But Iran's Ambassador to the UN Gholamali Khoshroo criticized the council for taking up a matter his country considers "purely domestic", and called it bullying by the United States. "Let Iran deal with its own problems".
Members of the UNSC were first split on the issue of whether the council has jurisdiction over the Iranian situation but they voted, nevertheless, in favour of allowing the members to consider the United States complaint against Tehran.
Russia, a close ally of Iran's, agreed.
British Ambassador to the UN, Matthew Rycroft, refuted the Iranian allegations and said that no one is forcing Iran onto their agenda.
Observing that the Council's primary responsibility is maintaining global peace and security, Wu Haito of China said that it should not be the venue for discussing the human rights situation of any country.

Speaking about the return, Mad Catz' Selena Chang explained that the company firmly believes that its "best days lie ahead". A filing for voluntary bankruptcy followed later that month, and that appeared to be the end of the Mad Catz story.
But France's ambassador, Francois Delattre, urged caution, saying the council should act "with all the vigilance required, guarding against any exploitation of this crisis, which would only reinforce the extremes".
"However worrying the events of the last few days in Iran may be, they do not constitute per se a threat to worldwide peace and security", Ambassador Francois Delattre said.
"It's another attempt [at bullying] by the USA, which has lost authority and credibility in the eyes of the whole world", said Khoshroo. Andrew Peek, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Iraq and Iran, stated that the administration will not pursue regime change in Tehran, but instead seek to pressure the Islamic Republic into changing its conduct.
Khoshoroo alleged that the USA has a long history of intervening in the internal affairs of Iran, including a continuous pattern of disruption in the democratisation process in Iran.
"The UNSC rebuffed the US' naked attempt to hijack its mandate".
Every UN member state is sovereign, but member states can not use sovereignty as a shield when they categorically deny their people human rights and fundamental freedoms, Haley said.
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif wrote on his Twitter account that the meeting was "another foreign policy blunder for the Trump administration".
