Transcript of remarks by Anthea Mcintyre at the online conference marking International Women’s Day 2021.

The situation of women in Iran

Dear Maryam Rajavi and distinguished guests, and my Iranian sisters. It is a great privilege and honor to join you all on this International Women’s Day and highlight the situation of women in Iran, who are suffering under the ghastly misogynist clerical regime which rules the country.

We’ve already heard today about the appalling treatment of Zahra Ismaili, who has hanged in prison just over two weeks ago. She saw 16 prisoners hanged in front of her. She had a heart attack before she could be taken to the gallows. But nevertheless, the prison guards hanged her lifeless body.

 

But why was she executed? What terrible crime had she committed? Zahra was innocent, but she claimed responsibility for killing her husband in order to save her teenage daughter, who had in fact shot him in the head. And why did the daughter kill her father with the help of her brother?

Because her father routinely abused his wife and children. He had threatened to kill his wife, and he had attempted to rape his daughter.

ASSADI WORKED WITH THE REGIME’S MINISTRY OF INTELLIGENCE

And this man was a director of Mullah’s Ministry of Intelligence. So, he was an official of the Iranian regime. In fact, working in the same ministry that was involved in the foiled terrorist plot which planned to kill hundreds of people at the Free Iran gathering in Paris in 2018, a plot which a Belgium court recently found in Iranian diplomat guilty of commanding.

 

Terrorism Trial Begins

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Assadi was at the head of the Iranian regime’s intelligence network in Europe.

 

EU Appeasing the mullahs and ignoring their abuse of human rights

In my time as a member of the European Parliament, I was very proud to be a member of the friends for free Iran. We campaigned for the European Union to sever diplomatic and trade relations with Iran until human rights are respected.

I find it absolutely sickening to see European commissioners and officials, pursuing trade relations, appeasing the mullahs, and ignoring their abuse of human rights, especially women’s rights.

We are free women, we can make choices, we can wear what we like, we can marry whomever we like, we can voice our opinions. In Iran, women have no such freedoms.

 

Executions in Iran

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): a new wave of executions has started in Iran- people have been executed on various charges in Iran.

Rouhani’s has increased the restrictions on women

Rouhani’s regime has increased the restrictions on women. 114 women have been executed and many women are in prison because they dare to express their opinions.

We have a duty to continue to raise public awareness and to insist that the international community plays a part in holding the Iranian regime to account for their crimes.

So, let us promise our sisters in Iran that we will choose to challenge and do everything in our power to make this change.

 

Anti-Women Threats

The main opposition organization, The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), is indeed led by a woman, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI).
