As Mrs. Rajavi emphasized, “since the outset, we have declared that our struggle is not for taking power, but to realize the Iranian people’s desires for the establishment of freedom, justice, and democracy at any cost. As we mark the 40th year of the struggle against religious tyranny, the Iranian Resistance renews its commitment to the Iranian people and the 120,000 martyrs for freedom.”

Mrs. Rajavi emphasized the tumultuous events going on in Iran today as the regime struggles to contain the people’s anger: “The series of anti-regime uprisings of recent years was the logical and historical continuation of the blood-drenched line drawn on June 20, 1981, the uprisings which began in December 2017 and culminated to a raging uprising in November 2019.”

She continued “we have always said and reiterated that this regime should not be allowed to obtain even a single bullet; it should not pocket even a single dollar in oil revenues, and it should not spend even a single dollar out of revenues that belong to the people of Iran. Today, due to the inhuman policies of Khamenei and Rouhani, the coronavirus has spread like wildfire, claiming victims all over Iran.”
Mrs. Rajavi ended her speech by saying that “the Iranian Resistance has also emphasized since a long time ago that it seeks the restoration of the six UN Security Council resolutions against the regime. We emphasize the extension of international sanctions against any form of weapons trade with the regime,”
