Mrs. Rajavi’s “tireless advocacy for the Iranian people, particularly women, has not gone unnoticed,” remarked Congresswoman Mace, praising Rajavi’s unyielding efforts. She stressed the need to rise above partisan politics to support the rights of Iranian women.
The hearing also featured Congressman Tom McClintock (R-CA), who has recently co-sponsored the House Resolution 100, supporting the Iranian people’s uprising and Mrs. Rajavi’s ten-point plan for the future of Iran.Currently, this resolution has the backing of a 234 members-strong majority of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Mrs. Rajavi outlined the pivotal role women have played in leading the resistance, citing the ongoing uprising as an outcome of over 40 years of struggle. “People refuse to tolerate the current status quo.The Iranian people desire a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear republic,” she emphasized.
Other Congress members, including Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN), Congressman Danny Davis (D-IL), Congressman Randy Weber (R-TX), and Congressman Lance Gooden (R-TX) expressed their admiration for Mrs. Rajavi’s struggle for freedom and supported her efforts towards creating a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear Iran.
“Madam Rajavi, we’re so proud to know you and to see you…What you’re doing is vital…Madam Rajavi has taken it upon herself to represent the fight for freedom and liberty, not just for the girls and the women, which is extremely important for all Iranians,” Congressman Weber said.
Overall, the hearing echoed a unified bipartisan support for the Iranian Resistance and underscored the urgent need to back the Iranian people’s struggle for freedom and democracy.
