MEK Iran: Virtual Conference Marks Launch of Resistance Movement for Freedom & Democracy in Iran

International Online Conference

MEK Iran: Freedom, democracy, and human rights were the theme of the International conference on Iran.

Iranians from all over the world, plus international supporters, participated yesterday in an online conference. This was to celebrate the founding of the resistance movement that took place nearly four decades ago.

Freedom, democracy, and human rights were the themes of the conference and this aim was supported by key dignitaries from around the world.

Sadly, after the Iranian revolution of 1979 and the overthrow of the Shah’s dictatorship, democracy was never fully restored. Soon after this time, a resistance movement was initiated which has to this day been the main opposition to the terror of the mullah’s regime. It is called the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), which has fought tirelessly to install a secular, free democracy in Iran.

Speech by NCRI President Maryam Rajavi

According to NCRI President-elect, Maryam Rajavi, these last four decades of Iran’s modern history have led to many sacrifices made by the members of the Iranian Resistance including the never to be forgotten summer 1988 massacre of political prisoners. She says now Iran is experiencing a more rebellious generation as they have quickly learned how in previous decades Iranians have made sacrifices as they resist the oppression of the Iranian Regime.

Maryam Rajavi reminded the conference that in December 2017 an important uprising took place, followed in November 2019 by a similar uprising. She said that even though the regime is arresting, imprisoning, and even executing members of the resistance, it is not stopping the resistance from growing. She mentioned the fact that the mullahs are attempting to spread lies about the (PMOI / MEK Iran) and the Iranian Resistance, but these sorts of deceiving tactics are not stopping the protests. She said that the attempts of the regime to erase the opposition simply isn’t working.

She emphasized that the world is waking up to the terrorist activities that the mullahs are waging against their people. Also, she told the international community that the mullahs should not be supplied with arms and it shouldn’t be banking oil profits for its benefits, but this money belongs to the Iranian people who own the soil where the oil comes from. She further stated her support for the extension of sanctions and the restoring of UN Security Council resolutions against the regime.

Somber words from Íngrid Betancourt

Íngrid Betancourt, former Colombian Senator, and presidential candidate supports wholeheartedly the aims of the MEK and indicates how devastated she is by the execution of 120,000 opponents since 1979. She also condemned the ruthless violence inflicted on the protesters in November 2019, which caused the death of no less than 1,500 people. She condemns the way the regime hasn’t supported its people throughout the outbreak of COVID-19. She went on to applaud the MEK for its stand on gender equality in a country where women are rarely put first. She said the time is up for the Iranian regime and its now time to restore democracy in the country.

Words from Faisal Odeh Al Rfouh, former Jordanian minister, Professor, University of Jordan

Faisal Odeh Al Rfouh said the time is right for the International community to take a stand on the role of the oppressive force currently controlling Iran. He alluded to the terrible treatment of the Iranian people by the regime in the current COVID-19 crisis. It is so bad that thousands of people are dying needlessly and prisoners instead of being let free have been executed trying to escape the virus in the prisons. He also mentioned that the regime was spending the country’s wealth in Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq but not on its citizens. He blames the mullahs for the instability that has arisen in the area and now the time has come to put an end to it.

Views from Hermann Tertsch, a Member of the European Parliament

He said that the regime so far has gained from its collaboration with the west but now things have got out of hand and it is time for a real change and rid the country of its current terrorist mullahs.

Former Spanish Senator Margarita Duran Vadell

She has said as much as the other attendees of this virtual conference that the resistance movement supports the people while the current regime exploits them. She said, “We are proud to stand with you Mrs. Rajavi. Let’s move toward a free Iran.”

Rita Süssmuth, Speaker of the German Bundestag – 1988 to 1998

She praises Mrs. Rajavi for her aim to install equality between men and women in Iran. She said this will open the door to a new Iran which will encompass more freedom for the Iranian people.

Rama Yade, former French Secretary of Human Rights

Rama Yade said the youth in Iran will pave the road to victory for a new, freer Iran.

Antonio Tasso, Member of the Italian Parliament

Mr. Tasso condemned the regime for exploiting the presence of COVID-19 to murder political prisoners and to oppress and arrest the country’s youth. He emphasized how important it is for the EU states to make that leap forward and support the Iranian people in their struggles against oppression. He said as an Ashrafi that Iran no longer deserves to hold a seat in the United Nations.

Michele de Vaucouleurs, Member of the French National Assembly

Michele de Vaucouleurs showed his admiration for women and girls in Iran as they stand up and reject the regime’s misogynist rule. In particular, he shows his distaste for honor crimes perpetuated by the mullah’s regime.

Steve McCabe, Member of UK Parliament, former Parliamentary Whip

Mr. McCabe showed his admiration for how the resistance movement has persisted and survived since 1979. He mentioned that the mullahs had sadly hijacked Iran and tried to impose their religious code which hasn’t benefited the people. The Iranian resistance predicted this would happen soon after the revolution as religious nationalism started to unfold and Maryam Rajavi has persisted with fighting for change in the country. He said he wanted the British government to support Mrs. Rajavi and her aim to put in place a free and democratic Iran.

Speech by MEK supporter Sina Adhami – UK.

Sina said that Britain has just let Iran slip below the radar and has failed to either show interest or condemn the brutal activities of the mullahs. He said it was time for the British government to wake up and support the resistance movement as it fights for justice, freedom, and human rights for the Iranian people.
