London Rally Gains Widespread Media Attention

Free Iran rally - London - Supporters of MEK

The Free Iran rally in LONDON, where over 3000 supporters of MEK gathered to show solidarity with the Iranian uprisings-July 27, 2019

The London Free Iran Rally last Saturday attracted media attention from news outlets throughout the world. More than 3,000 MEK supporters turned out to ask the international community to recognize the Iranian people’s right to overthrow the clerical regime and to end the policy of appeasement that has emboldened the mullahs to take increasingly hostile and aggressive actions both at home and abroad.

The following are excerpts from reports about the event:

Elaph Website

“British speakers called on their government to change its current policies of appeasement vis-à-vis Iran and adopt a firm stance, and recognize the Iranian people’s democratic demands. They also called for an initiative to force the Iranian regime to provide democracy; respect human rights; end all executions; stop all warmongering activities, exportation of terrorism and Islamic fundamentalism; and halt its nuclear program.”

Sunday Express

“On July 27, some 3,000 Iranians living in the UK demonstrated on the streets of central London, demanding comprehensive sanctions against the mullahs’ regime.

 

“Along with deteriorating international relations, the regime in Iran is accused of severe human rights violations and barbaric treatment—especially of prisoners, such as that of Britain’s own Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

 

Matthew James Offord the Member of Parliament for Hendon, addressing some 3000 MEK supporters at Free Iran rally in London, July 27, 2019

“Matthew Offord, MP for Hendon in north London, demanded action be taken now.

 

He told the chanting crowds: “The decision by world powers to decouple human rights and terrorism from the nuclear deal was a mistake and a missed opportunity.

 

“‘I believe the UK Government must now act to proscribe the IRGC and the Ministry of Intelligence as terrorist organizations in their entirety in response to Teheran’s aggression.’

 

“Thousands of people descended on Trafalgar Square, many of whom were exiles who were forced to flee from their homes under the brutal and oppressive regime.

 

“NCRI’s president-elect Maryam Rajavi called on Britain and Europe to stop “paying ransom to the mullahs” in a speech projected onto a screen at Trafalgar Square.

 

“‘Do not help them decrease the sanctions. Stand up to them. Place the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the mullahs’ Gestapo [Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS)], Khamenei’s office and [Iranian regime President] Hassan Rouhani on the terror list.

 

“‘I specifically urge the new UK government to support human rights, namely the suppressed human rights of the people of Iran.

 

“‘I urge them to take action to send an international fact-finding mission to Iran to visit the regime’s prisons and the political prisoners particularly, the women.’”

Okkaz Daily of Saudi Arabia

“Demonstrators in downtown London rallied against the mullahs’ regime in Iran, calling on the United Kingdom to designate the IRGC, the MOIS and the office of Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei as terrorist entities.”

Al Arabiya

“Titled ‘Supporting the Iranian people’s protests,’ the demonstration was held following a series of rallies and gatherings by Iranian dissidents during the past few weeks covering the capitals of various countries, including the United States and Western Europe.

Arab News

“Thousands of exiled Iranian dissidents rallied in Trafalgar Square in London on Saturday to demand regime change in Tehran, urging new UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to get behind their campaign.

Struan Stevenson, the coordinator of the Campaign for Iran Change, said: ‘We want regime change, we want to get rid of this evil regime. We’re here underneath the statue of Admiral Nelson. What would Nelson make of a British ship being seized by pirates? He would be turning in his grave.

 

“‘So our message today to Boris Johnson is to be tough on this regime as they are spreading terrorism and war across the Middle East and the world.’”

Maryam Rajavi addressing MEK supporters during free Iran rally

Maryam Rajavi to London Rally: “Iran Will Be Free”

Maryam Rajavi addressing MEK supporters during free Iran rally

Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian opposition, addresses more than 3000 supporters of MEK in London, via video, during the Free Iran Rally in London-July 27, 2019

More than 3,000 MEK supporters gathered in London on Saturday, July 27th to rally in support of a free and democratic Iran. The London Free Iran Rally was the final event in a series of activities that were held this summer by the MEK and NCRI in world capitals in order to urge the international community to cut financial ties with the Iranian regime and to recognize the right of the Iranian people to overthrow the clerical regime.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi delivered a video address to the attendees at the rally, in which she urged the U.K. to end the policy of appeasement and to support human rights in Iran. Her speech is excerpted below.

Mrs. Rajavi’s Address

“Your demonstration today in London marks the peak of a series of Free Iran rallies taken place over the past one-and-a-half months in Brussels; Washington, D.C.; Berlin; and Stockholm.

It is also an extension of the Iranian Resistance’s five-day annual gathering, two weeks ago, at Ashraf 3,” Mrs. Rajavi said to the assembled crowd.

Demonization Campaign

“The clerical regime has again unleashed another barrage of fake and misleading news against the Iranian Resistance through a fake Twitter account presumably belonging to a French Consul General,” she said, referring to the cyber scandal that was uncovered last week. “The Foreign Ministry of France issued an official statement denying the news, and Twitter also shut down the regime’s fake account,” she continued.

“The mullahs’ regime has reiterated time and again that they do not have a red line and they tolerate anything against the regime, even for Khamenei. However, just as it was the case during the massacre of political prisoners in 1988, the most forbidden name and the red line is the name of the PMOI [MEK],” Mrs. Rajavi emphasized.

“This is the identity, path, and tradition which terrifies the religious dictatorship even inside the regime’s jails and torture chambers. Khomeini issued a fatwa ordering the massacre of anyone who remained loyal to the name and ideals of the MEK. But the victims cried out Massoud Rajavi’s name even at the gallows,” she said.

 

“Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s heir at the time, said the MEK cannot be eliminated through killing, but will further spread,” Mrs. Rajavi added.

Ready to Pay the Price

“Today, we see that the MEK is spread in Iran by the expansion of resistance units and 1,000 Ashrafs. The message of the people of Iran and supporters of Ashraf is the same everywhere: freedom and a free Iran. The mullahs must go. Regime change and regime change” said Mrs. Rajavi. “And we do not get tired of repeating and insisting on these calls. We will cry out and repeat them again and again until the day they are realized. And of course, they would be certainly realized with your support,” she added.

 

“Why and for what reason?” she asked. “As Massoud Rajavi the historical leader of MEK said, ‘Because of remaining loyal to our pledges and making the endless sacrifice in Iran’s history.’ A glance over the list of execution victims, particularly the list of the victims of the 1988 massacre, reveals the truth of this statement. Our people, our Resistance and the Mojahedin of Ashraf, have proven that they are prepared and ready to pay the price of freedom.”

The Policy of Appeasement

Mrs. Rajavi noted the contrast between the MEK’s fight for freedom and the actions of those who have sought to appease the mullahs. “Our Resistance has proven that peace and freedom can only be earned through fighting the mullahs’ religious dictatorship. This is in diametric opposition to the proponents of appeasement who defend the regime under the guise of peace.”

She stressed that the prerequisite to peace in the Middle East is the overthrow of the Iranian regime and went on to detail the many ways that the policy of appeasement has failed.

“Really, are the mullahs and IRGC’s attacks on shipping in the Persian Gulf, jeopardizing regional and international security, in any way related to the policy of appeasement, the clampdown on the MEK, and overlooking the violations of human rights in Iran in the nuclear deal? Didn’t concessions to the mullahs from the account of the Iranian people and Resistance further embolden the mullahs? Mrs. Rajavi asked.

 

“How did the proscription of the MEK, disarming the Liberation Army, and bombardments of their basecamps in those years, with U.K.’s assistance, change the balance of power on the ground and in whose interest? Did they benefit peace and security or working against them? Indeed, has the clerical regime given up on its hostage-taking of European and American citizens and nationals?” she continued.

 

“Why has the regime increased the level of uranium enrichment and why has it added to the range of its ballistic missiles? Which regime benefits and for what purpose from the demonization of the MEK and the Iranian Resistance? Indeed, what happened to the moderate and reformed mullahs you encouraged and advocated for four decades? she went on.

 

“Didn’t the people of Iran put an end to the political theatrics of fundamentalists vs. reformists by their uprisings?” Mrs. Rajavi added.

 

“Yes, the policy of giving maneuvering room to the mullahs has been and continues to be totally disappointing and a disaster, and it will continue to be so. This policy is not only against the people of Iran but against regional and global peace and security,” Mrs. Rajavi stressed.

 

“The Iranian Resistance has paid the heaviest price and has always reiterated that the mullahs understand no language except the language of force and firmness.”

No More Concessions

“We urge Britain, Europe, and all governments to halt giving concessions to the mullahs. Do not help them decrease the sanctions. Stand up to them. Place the Revolutionary Guard Corps [IRGC] and the mullahs’ Gestapo [MOIS], Khamenei’s office and Hassan Rouhani on the terror list,” Mrs. Rajavi said.

“We urge you to set aside the policy of overlooking the main force in Iranian society and history. Instead of complicity and shaking hands with the religious fascism, stand on the side of the people of Iran for regime change,” she continued.

 

“I specifically urge the new UK government to support human rights, namely the suppressed human rights of the people of Iran. I urge them to take action to send an international fact-finding mission to Iran to visit the regime’s prisons and the political prisoners particularly, the women.

Baroness Boothroyd, the former speaker of the House of Commons, once said that the massacre of political prisoners in Iran, which took place after Khomeini was forced to accept the ceasefire in the [Iran-Iraq] war, has been the greatest crime against humanity since the Second World War. She said this crime remains unaccounted for but there will come a day when we would witness the truth get rectified,” said Mrs. Rajavi.

“The ruling regime is surrounded by an impatient nation confident that her liberation will not be realized unless the mullahs are overthrown. The clerical regime has no more strength or resources and is struggling in a quagmire which will lead to its overthrow.

The era of religious fascism is coming to an end; Iran will be free. We will take back our most beautiful homeland by the resistance units and the Army of Freedom,” she concluded.

MEK supporters rally in London-July 2019

Thousands of the Supporters of MEK, rallied in London on Saturday, July 27, to express their solidarity with Iran uprisings and to show support for the Iranian resistance (MEK).

On Saturday, a large crowd of Iranians rallied in London to show their unprecedented support for the main Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), as the cornerstone member of this movement. The event is the latest in a series of demonstrations held in different cities across the globe, including Brussels, Washington. D.C., Berlin and Stockholm.

The London gathering also comes just two weeks after a five-day event at Ashraf 3, the new PMOI/MEK headquarters in Albania, where hundreds of dignitaries from over 50 countries gathered to voice their support for Iranian protesters and the objective of overthrowing the mullahs’ regime.

 

British MP Dr. Matthew Offord

“It was an honor for me to lead a British delegation to Free Iran event in Ashraf 3, Albania. It was an opportunity to meet the people of Ashraf and hear their experiences and their hopes for the future,” said British MP Dr. Matthew Offord.

 

“We were convinced during our visit that Madam Rajavi represents an opportunity for the future of Iran. She seeks peace in the region. Recent events in the Persian Gulf show Iran is engaged in state piracy,” he continued in reference to Iranian opposition NCRI President Maryam Rajavi.

 

“Today our response should be firm, held on the principle that the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and the regime of Iran should be held to account to their atrocities. These organizations should be proscribed in their entirety under the terrorism act,” Dr. Offord continued.

 

“We should say we want to see regime change in Iran, led by Madam Rajavi, to achieve a better Iran and a better world order,” this British MP emphasized.

 

“We should recognize that the greatest asset for us is the bond of friendship between the people of Iran, the NCRI and the world. The people of Iran are ready to stand up for change,” Dr. Offord concluded.

 

Iranian opposition President Maryam Rajavi

“The message of the people of Iran and supporters of Ashraf is the same everywhere: freedom and a free Iran. The mullahs must go. Regime change and regime change… And we do not get tired of repeating and insisting on these calls. We will cry out and repeat them again and again until the day they are realized,” NCRI President Maryam Rajavi said in her speech.

 

“Our Resistance has proven that peace and freedom can only be earned through fighting the mullahs’ religious dictatorship. This is in diametric opposition to the proponents of appeasement who defend the regime under the guise of peace,” she added.

 

Criticizing the proponents of the appeasement policy toward the mullahs, Mrs. Rajavi said, “These gentlemen’s hollow calls for peace are tantamount to safeguarding the regime against the Iranian people’s desire and against human rights.”

“We urge Britain, Europe and all governments to halt giving concessions to the mullahs. Do not help them decrease the sanctions. Stand up to them. Place the IRGC and the mullahs’ Gestapo (Ministry of Intelligence and Security – MOIS), [Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali] Khamenei’s office and [President] Hassan Rouhani on the terror list,” the NCRI President highlighted.

 

“We urge you to set aside the policy of overlooking the main force in Iranian society and history. Instead of complicity and shaking hands with the religious fascism, stand on the side of the people of Iran for regime change,” she continued.

 

“I specifically urge the new UK government to support human rights, namely the suppressed human rights of the people of Iran. I urge them to take action to send an international fact-finding mission to Iran to visit the regime’s prisons and the political prisoners particularly, the women,” Mrs. Rajavi stressed.

 

“The era of religious fascism is coming to an end; Iran will be free. We will take back our most beautiful homeland by the resistance units and the Army of Freedom,” the NCRI President concluded.

 

Former MEP Struan Stevenson

“In the past few weeks, tens of thousands of supporters of NCRI supporters have gathered in Brussels, Washington, Berlin, Tirana, Stockholm and here,” said former MEP Struan Stevenson.

 

“After suffering many attacks in Ashraf and Liberty, MEK has risen from its ashes in Ashraf 3, Albania,” he continued.

 

“We have shown the world in the past few weeks the strength of our movement. The Guardian should be ashamed of the rubbish they publish. It’s a disgrace that newspapers like the Guardian still follow the appeasement policy with the mullahs. Why don’t they support the Iranian people who want human rights, women’s rights, justice, peace?” asked Mr. Stevenson.

 

“These newspapers claim the choice is between war and appeasement. We do not see war, we see courage, resilience. We must show our support for the people of Iran and the Iranian resistance,” the former MEP emphasized.

 

“My message to Boris Johnson and his government. Please respect the PMOI and its charismatic leader Mrs. Rajavi. Please respect their struggle for regime change. We don’t need intervention. We must just support the people and the resistance,” Mr. Stevenson highlighted in a message to the new UK government.

“This criminal regime has added international piracy to its long list of transgressions. It has become a universal pariah. It is supporting terrorism while its 80 million citizen struggle in poverty. It executes dissidents and hangs people in public. It has executed more than 3,500 people under the so-called ‘moderate’ Hassan Rouhani,” he added.

 

“We stand shoulder to shoulder with the resistance and with the MEK,” Mr. Stevenson concluded.

“Iran still holds the highest number of executions per capita. The regime deprives women of their basic rights and punishes them for mal-veiling and wearing colorful clothes,” said Irish Senator Catherine Noone.

 

“Mrs. Rajavi has made many sacrifices for a better future for all Iranians, particularly the women of Iran… The people of Iran have had enough of this dictatorship. They’re chanting down with dictator. Women play a prominent role in protests, inspired for the NCRI,” she added.

 

“Iran needs regime change, and it needs to happen soon,” Senator Noone concluded.

 

Former MEP Jim Higgins

“A country that hangs its own citizens is barbaric. A company that suppresses its own people is a tyranny that must be removed,” said former MEP Jim Higgins.

 

“We rejoice in the fact that Ashraf 3 in Albania is such a success. The mullahs know the clock is ticking and their days are numbered,” he added.

 

“40 years ago, the Shah left Iran. A vacuum was created. It should have been the dawn of freedom and democracy. But we’re here today because that 1979 dream turned into a nightmare. We’re here to make sure that dream is realized,” Mr. Higgins continued.

 

“We pledge our support to do anything possible to make that dream come true. We’re here to send a strong message to the regime: your days are numbered. Hand over to a real democracy. Hand over to a real president, to Mrs. Rajavi,” the former MEP concluded.

 

Irish Senator Gerry Horkan

“The strong attendance of thousands of Iranians and politicians in these events debunked claims by some media that Mrs. Rajavi and NCRI have no support,” said Irish Senator Gerry Horkan.

 

“The 1988 massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners is evidence of the regime’s fear toward the MEK and the resistance movement. The regime has been waging assault on the rights of the Iranian people for over 40 years, and has destroyed their economy through its corruption,” he added.

 

“We urge the EU and the UK government to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization as the main tool for the regime to export terrorism. We must alter the policies of our government to recognize the rights of the Iranian people,” the Irish Senator highlighted.

 

Dowlat Nowruzi, NCRI Representative in the UK

“We are here to convey the four decades of suffering of the Iranian people. We are here to convey the main aspiration of the Iranian people, demanding justice, demanding freedom, demanding regime change and demanding support for Mrs. Rajavi,” said Dowlat Nowruzi, NCRI Representative in the UK.

 

“Decisiveness is the only solution to dealing with this regime. Our resistance movement has paid the highest price for the rights of the Iranian people,” she added.

 

“Enough is enough! The mullahs must go. They do not represent the Iranian people. We want regime change now,” Ms. Nowruzi continued.

 

“The main message of protesters across Iran is ‘hardliners, reformists, the game is over.’ Massoud Rajavi called for solidarity for the millions of people in Iran and the hundreds of thousands who poured onto the streets for their rights. The people of Iran deserve the violators of human rights who are occupying the top to bottom of this regime to face justice,” the NCRI Representative in the UK emphasized.

 

“It is time for the UK government to realize that they must lead in Europe for a policy toward Iran. As Ashraf 3 proved to the world community, this movement is committed in its entirety it is dedicated to freedom in Iran. They proved they can build the future of Iran,” she continued.

 

“The recent terror attempts of the regime are all indications that the world community must be united with the NCRI for a policy of regime change in Iran,” Ms. Nowruzi concluded.

 

British MP Roger Godsiff

“The UK must recognize the rights of the Iranian people for regime change and support the NCRI and Mrs. Rajavi’s ten-point plan for the future of Iran,” said British MP Roger Godsiff.

 

“The main barrier to democratic change in Iran is the IRGC. I welcome the decision of the U.S. government to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization and to place sanctions on the office of the supreme leader. I hope our government in the UK takes similar steps,” he continued.

 

“This brutal regime only understands the language of firmness. The international community must make clear to the regime and its officials that we in the free world stand with the people of Iran and their resistance movement to bring about democracy and human rights in Iran,” Mr. Godsiff added.

 

“We fully support the NCRI and we look forward to the day where we can be Iran and celebrate a free and democratic Iran,” the British MP concluded.

 

Former MEP Paolo Casaca

“Tomorrow, we will remember the 10th anniversary of the first massacre in Ashraf. It was followed by another massacre in 2011 and again in September 2013, as well as massacres in Camp Liberty. I pay homage to all these heroes who fell in these massacres and those who have been disabled for life,” said former MEP Paolo Casaca.

 

“We will think about them. But we must also think about the present and about ways to confront this regime which is a monster to its people and its neighbors. We must think about ways to confront the sea of lies being thrown at the Iranian opposition. We have seen ludicrous lies and fabricated accounts in newspapers here in England,” he added.

 

“The mullahs want to steal the past of the Iranian people to prevent them from obtaining the future. The past of the Iranian people, Cyrus the Great, Sattar Khan, Mossadegh, and of course Massoud Rajavi, they are your heritage, and you are going to make an Iran that is absolutely in line with its past glories, after putting the mullahs away and putting behind this dark era of your history… The future is yours,” Mr. Casaca concluded.

 

Former British MP Brian Binley

“The regime has moved to arrest hundreds of PMOI supporters and their families in Iran because the popular protests are undermining the regime’s power. The regime is showing with its own actions that we should support the NCRI and Madam Rajavi if we want to counter the regime’s malign activities. They represent a true and viable alternative to the current regime,” said former British MP Brian Binley.

 

“The attacks we’ve witnessed in the past months prove the regime sees the NCRI as its main threat. The regime is warning about the growing support for the Iranain resistance,” he added.

 

“Boris Johnson needs to change the policy that was pursued by previous governments that were frightened to oppose the regime, a regime that is not supported by the people. We need change in the British government,” Mr. Binley concluded.

“The Law Society has called for the release of Iranian lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh after defending women who took part in protests. Lawyers must be able to perform their judicial functions without hindrance and harassment,” said Denise Lester, Member of The Law Society of England and Wales.

 

“We support you in the cause for human rights, women’s rights and democracy in Iran,” she concluded.

 

Roger Lyons, former president of the UK Trade Unions Congress

“In Ashraf 3, we saw impressive constructions. But it is only temporary, until it goes back in Tehran,” said Roger Lyons, former president of the UK Trade Unions Congress.

 

“We’re here because the mullahs are falling apart. They tried a terror plot against the Paris conference last year. Then they tried to blow us up in Albania, and their ambassador was expelled.

 

Lyons referred to the bankrupt state of the Iraniain economy and the abysmal human rights conditions, including the imprisonment of British national Nazanin Zaghari.

 

I also wish to state a remark to Jeremy Corbyn. We aren’t happy with the support he has given to the mullahs. We aren’t happy that he has been paid by PressTV to spread propaganda for the Iranian regime. You should support the Iranian resistance, not the mullahs.

 

Resistance in Iran is growing under the leadership of NCRI and Mrs. Rajavi. The mullahs are falling out.

 

Iraqi jurist Dr. Mohamed al-Sheikhli

“The PMOI represents the dreams of the Iranian people. We must remember the victims of the mullahs’ regime and the blood that was shed for freedom,” said Iraqi jurist Dr. Mohamed al-Sheikhli.

 

“Let us remember the role of the champions, the Ashraf residents before the government of former Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki and agents of the Iranian regime. The mullahs are violating international law. They’re a serious threat to global security. The actions of the mullahs in and around the Strait of Hormuz proves this regime does not respect and adhere to international laws. It supports death squads in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen. The mullahs’ regime evades sanctions by controlling the Iraqi people’s money and stealing the country’s oil resources,” he added.

 

“This is part of the regime’s expansion plans in the Middle East region. The regime is also planting terrorists and death squads in the EU through its embassies. The EU and UK must take urgent action and shut down these embassies to preserve the security of their citizens,” Dr. al-Sheikhli continued.

 

“The crimes of the bloody regime should not be forgotten. The international community must form an international tribunal against the regime for its crimes against the Iranian people, the Iraqi, Lebanese and Syrian people,” the prominent Iraqi jurist emphasized.

 

“This regime seeks to obtain nuclear weapons. The international community must take responsibility to confront this criminal regime. They need to tighten sanctions in all forms against this regime. The international community is fully aware that the true alternative to this regime is the leadership of Maryam Rajavi and the PMOI. They are the true hope for the Iranian people and the people of ME,” Dr. al-Sheikhli concluded.

 

Iranian community delegation

Comments by members of the Iraniain community in the UK:

 

“We are a generation who have never seen our homes, whose parents were tortured and executed by the mullahs, whose aunts and uncles were massacred in Ashraf and Liberty, whose brothers and sisters are being beaten in Tehran’s streets and attacked by the mullahs thugs. The Iranian regime has failed in suppressing us.”

 

“With heroes in Ashraf 3, how can we not have courage? How can we not be hopeful? How can we not be strong with the leadership of Maryam Rajavi? We will continue to carry the flag of 120,000 martyrs. Free Iran is the true desire of the Iranian people. We call on Boris Johson to stand on the right side of history and support the Iranian people. Recognize the NCRI and Maryam Rajavi as the true alternative that can bring freedom and democracy to Iran.”

 

Members of the Iranian community in the UK attending the London rally of Iranians in support of regime change in Iran by the Iranian people – London – July 27, 2019

 

“The people are rising across Iran. They have one clear message: The mullahs’ regime must go. This regime has only brought pain and hardship for the Iranian people and their neighbors. We show our support for the youth in Iran. You are strong and steadfast and you are an inspiration to us all.”

 

“We stand here to say in one united voice that we want regime change. The Iranian people have the right to decide their own future. Boris Johnson has a duty to stand with the Iranin people.  Appeasement has only resulted in hostage-taking and terrorism by the regime. We demand the IRGC and the entirety of the mullahs’ regime to be put on the list of terrorist organizations.”

 

“Victory is ours. The future is ours.”

MEK's Free Iran rally in London-July 27, 2019

MEK Supporters to Hold Free Iran Rally in London on Saturday

 

MEK's Free Iran rally in London-July 27, 2019

The firth Free Iran rally by supporters of MEK will be held in London, Trafalgar square on Saturday the 27th of July 2019

MEK supporters will gather in London on Saturday, July 27th, to show solidarity with the Iranian people’s anti-regime uprisings and to ask the international community to recognize the right of the people of Iran to overthrow their oppressors. They are further calling for the United Kingdom to recognize the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its President-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, as the viable democratic alternative to the regime, and they are asking that the U.K. end its support of the mullahs’ regime by imposing sanctions on Iran and by cutting all financial ties with the Iranian regime.

 

The rally will be attended by MEK and NCRI supporters and members of the Anglo-Iranians communities and will include speeches by a cross-party delegation of Members of British Parliament, prominent human rights activists, and well-known figures from the U.K.

Previous Rallies

The London rally is the final event in a series of Free Iran rallies that have been held this summer in world capitals. Previous rallies in Brussels; Washington, D.C.; Berlin; and Stockholm drew tens of thousands of attendees and attracted hundreds of prominent politicians, human rights activists, lawmakers, and dignitaries. The annual Free Iran Conference was held at Ashraf-3, the MEK’s newly-constructed headquarters in Albania earlier this month. The five-day conference featured panel discussions, hundreds of distinguished speakers from around the world, testimony from survivors of the 1988 Massacre, and an exhibition of the history of the MEK’s struggle under the Iranian regime.

Rising Tensions

This year’s Free Iran events are taking place during a period of unprecedented tensions between the Iranian regime and the international community. In the past several weeks, the regime has increased its acts of aggression with a series of attacks in the Strait of Hormuz. Ships, tankers, and a drone have all been targeted by the Iranian regime.

 

Inside the country, the Iranian regime has cracked down on political dissent and increased the number of executions. Conditions inside Iranian prisons have deteriorated beyond their already substandard state, forcing many political prisoners to go on hunger strikes in an attempt to secure basic rights.

Attendees at the Free Iran Rally in London want the U.K. government to acknowledge the current state of affairs and end the policy of appeasement toward the Iranian regime that has emboldened the mullahs to act without consequences. MEK supporters at the rally will ask the U.K. to take concrete steps to pressure the Iranian regime to end its human rights abuses, stop its nuclear and ballistic missile programs, and end its warmongering and exportation of terrorism.

The London Free Iran Rally will start at Trafalgar Square and will conclude with a march. In addition to speeches, Saturday’s event will also include street exhibitions and theater performances condemning the Iranian regime for its human rights violations and malign activities. The rally is expected to draw thousands of attendees.
