MEK: Free Iran World Summit 2021
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), will convene its annual meeting, the Free Iran World Summit 2021, which will take place online from July 10 to 12, 2021, will be the largest of its kind.
The Free Iran World Summit 2021
The NCRI will be joined by tens of thousands of Iranians, global activists for democracy, senior parliamentarians, former senior government officials, and other notable figures from the United States, Europe, Australia, the Middle East, and Africa.
The Free Iran World Summit 2021 will focus on the Iranian regime’s survival crisis, including the Iranian people’s aspiration for freedom, as well as a secular and democratic republic. The speakers will also discuss how to deal with Iran’s religious leadership and Maryam Rajavi’s Ten Point Plan for the future of the NCRI.
Maryam Rajavi, the Ten Point Plan
The Iranian Resistance’s program for the future of Iran is the Ten Point Plan, which was first proposed by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the NCRI’s President-elect. It represents the Iranian people’s most important needs and wishes.
The Ten Point Plan has gained international acclaim, with a majority of the United States Congress approving Resolution 118 in April 2021.
Support policies and civic actions
The Free Iran World Summit 2021 will also support policies and civic actions that call on Iran’s clerical regime to be held accountable. Ebrahim Raisi, the regime’s next president, would be a special target.
In 1988, as deputy prosecutor of Tehran, Raisi was one of four people who, at the time, was named by the Supreme Leader Khomeini to carry out his infamous fatwa to massacre imprisoned activists affiliated with the main democratic opposition the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran). Thirty thousand political prisoners, mostly members of the MEK, were summarily executed in a couple of months during the massacre.
The 1988 massacre in Iran
The Iranian opposition’s longstanding demand that the perpetrators of the 1988 massacre in Iran are to be brought to justice has gained international support.
“That Ebrahim Raisi has risen to the presidency instead of being investigated for the crimes against humanity of murder, enforced disappearance, and torture is a grim reminder that impunity reigns supreme in Iran,” Amnesty International Secretary General Agnès Callamard noted recently in a statement.
The United Nations human rights investigator
Prof. Javaid Rehman, the United Nations’ human rights investigator in Iran, in an interview with Reuters on June 29, called for an independent investigation regarding the state-ordered executions of thousands of political prisoners in 1988, as well as President-elect Ebrahim Raisi’s role as Tehran deputy prosecutor.
In recent days, the European Parliament, as well as legislators from the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and other countries, have addressed the matter, calling for the imposition of Magnitsky-style sanctions on Raisi.
The dictatorship facing series of crises
The dictatorship is currently mired in a series of crises that are only getting worse. The economy is collapsing, societal unrest is at an all-time high, Tehran is cut off from the rest of the world, internal strife is increasing with the purge of so-called “moderate” factions, and the Iranian opposition calling for the regime’s overthrow is gaining support.
The international community must end the culture of impunity in the face of rising crimes against humanity and the installment of a mass murderer as president of Iran.
