Die Welt

Germany’s Die Welt website wrote:

“Several thousand people demonstrated in Berlin against the political system in Iran and for human rights. Under the motto: ‘Solidarity with the Citizens’ Protests in Iran – Against the Death Penalty,’ they held a rally at the Brandenburg Gate in the evening. A large banner read: ‘Time for a free Iran’. Many people wore Iranian flags and held large balloons in the national colors green-white-red. The protest march was registered by the exiled Iranian society.

 

“In Iran, the death penalty is imposed for, among other things, murder, rape, armed robbery, and heavier drug trafficking. Iran has been the focus of international criticism for many years due to its numerous executions.”

Rep. Kennedy noted the setting of the rally at the historic Brandenburg Gate and its parallels to the Iranian people’s current struggle for freedom. “We are at a historic point in history when it comes to the freedom of the people of Iran,” he said. “This is not just a problem for Iranians to solve, it’s a problem for anyone in the world who cherishes freedom and democracy and who hates the tyrannical regime of the mullahs in Iran.”

“Crimes against humanity are happening today, and it’s the mullahs in Tehran who are the fascist dictators,” Kennedy said.

“Iran is the single leading nation in the world for executing their own people. Not only are they sowing terrorism amongst their own people in Iran, but they are also sowing terrorism across the world,” Representative Kennedy added.

Kennedy expressed his support for the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran(MEK / PMOI) and spoke about what his experience in politics taught him about the mullahs’ attacks on the MEK: “When the MEK continues to get attacked every day, it reminds me that the mullahs cannot attack the MEK on the 10-point plan offered by Madam Rajavi, or on the assertion that Iran is the leading sponsor of state terrorism, or that the mullahs support Hezbollah and Hamas in Syria. It can’t attack the MEK because the MEK is right and the mullahs are wrong,” he said.

Representative Kennedy also addressed the partisan nature of support for U.S. sanctions and encouraged his fellow Democrats to look past their dislike of Trump in their consideration of sanction: “There are many on the Democratic left who believe that because they do not like Trump they have to be against sanctions on Iran…I do not believe that this is the time for us to let up on the financial stranglehold on the mullahs,” he said. “The economy is crashing, inflation is spiking. The mullahs can’t support their regime when we cut off the supply of money they use to continue to control their people. We need to keep sanctions going strong until we bring down this horrible dictatorship.”
