    Grand Gathering of Iranians, Free Iran 2018 in Paris – The Alternative, Live Stream. 

    Live Stream the Grand Gathering in Paris June 30

    On 30th June 2018 the Iranian diaspora hold their largest gathering ever in Paris. Thousands of thousands of freedom loving individuals from five continents gathered with one simple message “Free Iran” and to voice their support for the democratic alternative represented by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its President-elect, Maryam Rajavi, for democratic change.

    Maryam Rajvai Free Iran 2018

    Maryam Rajavi with personalities and MPs from over 50 countries in the Free Iran – The Alterntive, gathering – Villepinte, June 30, 2018.

    Maryam Rajavi in her speech said:

    The first thing that must be said this year is that flames of the auspicious and liberating uprising are again rising in Tehran and across Iran.

    The signs of change in Iran and the regime’s overthrow have appeared. The prospects for the victory of Iran’s democratic revolution, devoid of the mullahs and the Shah are looming.

    For the past six months the Iranian people have waged an uprising and a protest movement despite maximum suppression.

    Last week, the Tehran bazaar rose up and ignited the uprising in Tehran and other cities. Iran again rose up, with all its children, with all its nationalities and ethnicities.

    And we salute the Mojahedin in Ashraf 3, their home. Congratulations to you and the people of Iran for constructing it with your own hands.

    Truly, where is the destination? A free Iran, by eradicating dictatorship, until Khamenei is brought down from his seat.

    Ali Khamenei lacks any legitimacy. His standing has plummeted dramatically. The regime has run out of cash. The IRGC and the Bassij forces have been hit with defections. The moderation masquerade to preserve the regime has been unmasked.

    Internationally, the mullahs have lost the most important backer of the policy of appeasement, namely the U.S. The int’l shield safeguarding the regime has fallen off. The mullahs have practically lost their JCPOA. And successive sanctions are hitting them hard.

    In this gathering the bipartisan delegation of US dignitaries go on the stage & are enthusiastically welcomed by the audience. Mayor Giuliani reads out a statement signed by 33 US personalities in support of the NCRI & Maryam Rajavi.

    Panel Discussion on Iran: IRGC and Meddling in the Region 

    Panel discution Policy on Iran

    Panel Discussion on Iran: IRGC and Meddling in the Region

    Moderator: Walid Phares, Expert, global terrorism and Middle Eastern affairs

    Second panel discussion on Iran starts: IRGC and meddling in the region, moderated by Mr. Walid Phares, Expert, global terrorism and Middle Eastern affairs.

    Raid Yassine, Ambassador of Yemen in Paris, former Foreign Minister of Yemen:

    The reason the Iranian regime meddles in the region is instituted in its constitution. This highlights the fact that they will continue what they have been doing.

    Deputy Commander of the Quds Force said Yemen is more important than Lebanon. They infiltrated a huge country with 27 million people.

    We have been receiving aid and support from Saudi Arabia, Egypt , etc. We did not receive any support from Iran . Instead, we discovered spy networks. In January 2013.

    Ret. General Charles Wald, former Deputy Commander of U.S. European Command: “The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has not moderated the behavior of the Iranian regime. The JCPOA was pretty much a failure.”

    “Security of the Iranian regime depends on the export of revolution by that regime. Currently, Iran’s regional ambitions constitute its control over Syria. They provide troops for Assad.”

    U.S. Defense Secretary Mattis accused Iran of trying to influence the Iraqi elections. In Lebanon , Iran is accused of making at least two underground factories for manufacture of missiles.

    James Conway, General (Ret.), former Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps.: We have been using the term “meddling” for years, but I think that word no longer satisfies. Iran is today calling the shots in all Middle Eastern capitals.

    I have seen their (regime) activities described with terms “interdiction”, “subversion”, “cancer” and even “takeover.”

    Soleimani sees his mission in Syria as two folds: One is to support the Syrian regime and that includes the survival of the Assad regime. Syria has been Iran’s best ally for years and is crucial to this whole concept of the Shiite Crescent.

    Frédéric Encel, writer and scholar of geopolitics specialized on the Middle East.

    Mohammed al-Sulami, Head of International Institute for Iranian Studies · Yves Thréard, Editorialist in Le Figaro.

    Panel Discussion: Policy on Iran 

    Panel discution Policy on Iran

    Moderator: Lincoln Bloomfield, Ambassador, Distinguished Fellow and Chairman Emeritus at the Stimson Center, former Assistant Secretary of State for Military Affairs.

    Ambassador Bloomfield opens panel on Policy on Iran Bloomfield: Pres. Obama extended an olive branch to Iran and five years later there was a nuclear deal. Sec. of State Pompeo declared a list of 12 demands. I will ask the panelists to offer their views

    Giulio Terzi, former Foreign Minister of Italy and Ambassador to the UN.

    Terzi: The Iranian regime is not only meddling in the region but it is also has deployed its economy to strengthen the IRGC and fuel terrorism.

    Linda Chavez, former Director of the White House public liaison.

    Linda Chavez: “I would hope that the Administration would be more active in reaching out to the Iranian Resistance and talk to the PMOI and seek their ideas on their plans for future Iran.”

    Adam Ereli, Ambassador, former spokesperson of the U.S. Department of State and Ambassador to Bahrain. What a difference makes a year. Where we were last year, and where we are today. I think the Trump Administration is going in the right direction. The sanctions are working.

    I would offer a policy recommendation w/ three points. First, double down on the sanctions on the regime. Enforce those sanctions, cut the Iranian regime from the int’l banking system. Enforce secondary sanctions. finally, cut Iran from the international oil market.

    The final recommendation to US to support the Iranian people. The faster we can make these sanctions work is better for everybody.

    Robert Torricelli, Member of the U.S. Senate from 1997 to 2003; served 14 years in the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Senator Torricelli: “If we’re going to deal with the mullahs it’s only now… Pompeo’s 12 points mean that we will never reconcile with the mullahs… The [Iranian] regime has to go.”

    “We can differ with Donald Trump. We have brief fleeting moment in history, when democratic governments in strong economic position. If we are going to deal with the mullahs & other outlaw regimes, the moment is right now.”

    Paulo Casaca, Executive Director of the “South Asia Democratic Forum” based in Brussels, former member of European Parliament: The 12 points of Secretary Pompeo are brilliant and culminates all the good recommendations given over the years on Iran. I should not undermine this plan.

    Iran’s GDP does not justify the amount of investment done on the part of Europeans. I think we have to bring the issue of corruption in Europe on the table. It is important to raise the issue.

    Maria S. Ryan, President and CEO of Cottage Hospital, Woodsville, New Hampshire.

    Maria S. Ryan, President and CEO of Cottage Hospital, Woodsville, New Hampshire: I am not a politician. But I look at Iran, with such a rich culture. Now, women are deprived of their rights. There are so many abuses in Iran.

    The most impressive was that all these people came out to the streets in Iran. We shld continue our economic sanctions. We can take a bold stance & recognize Mrs. Rajavi as the President of the NCRI . Mrs. Rajavi’s 10point Plan was published in the NewYork Times

    A massive wave of Iran Protests has started this time from the capital of Tehran, Iran regime change is coming! 

    Tehran Protests June 25, 2018

    Tehran Protests June 25, 2018 against Mullah’s regime

    On Monday, June 25, Tehran continued for the second day of protests and strikes against the mullahs regime. On Sunday June 24, protests began to protest the unprecedented rise in dollar exchange rates in Tehran, and today, other sections of the public, especially the youth, joined the rally.

    People chant:

    ” Death to Khamenei”

    “Death to Dictator”

    “Leave Syria alone” “Think of us instead”

    “Let go of Syria, think about us” “Not Gaza, Not Lebanon, My life for Iran”

    “Beware of the day that we become armed” “Reformist, Hardliner the game is over”

    Similar protests have been reported from other Iranian cities such as Shiraz, Mashhad, Qeshm and Shahriyar, Bushehr and other cities that there has been a series of demonstrations against the regime, and many videos on social networks have been broadcast on nationwide protests against the mullahs.

    A recent two-day protests and strikes shows the inflamed state of Iran’s society and the readiness of the people to change the regime and overthrow it, and to replace this religious dictatorship regime with a democratic alternative.

    Maryam Rajavi, President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, in a message supporting the demonstrations by marketers and other sections of the population in Tehran, called on the Iranian youth to join the rally.

    Maryam Rajavi, saluted the brave marketers for their uprising in protest against high prices, corruption and looting of the Iranian nation’s assets by the mullahs’ regime, and called on all shopkeepers, tradesmen and merchants throughout the country to support and join the protesting marketers. She said: the exchange crisis and unprecedented high prices, which has imposed a burdensome pressure on the overwhelming majority of the people of Iran, is the outcome of the policies of the ruling religious fascism from the beginning that have wasted the assets of the Iranian people, either by spending on domestic repression, nuclear projects, export of terrorism and fundamentalism and warfare in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and other countries in the region, or have been looted by the regime’s corrupt leaders. The policies that are tied to the existence and benefits of all the gangs of this regime.

    It seems that after the massive protests in January 2018, much earlier than what some sources thought, the prediction and analysis of Iranian Resistance to has become reality. Yes, this is the will of the people of Iran, which will soon determined everything. Iran Regime Change  is coming! , so prepare for a Free Iran in 2018!

    What do Iranian dissidents seek? 

    A large segment of the Iranian diaspora will be at the Paris Grand Gathering

    June 23, 2018 – We’re just a week away from the annual Iranian opposition convention in Paris. In this rally, a large segment of the Iranian people, either living in exile or those who have amazingly been able to escape the Iranian regime’s siege and reach countries abroad, will be gathering to inform the world once again about the very tumultuous situation in Iran.

    Why the Iranian dissidents’ rally?

    Following the U.S. elections and Donald Trump becoming President after tracing his line in the sand from day one of his campaign, the Iranian people poured into the streets in December 2017 and launched a wave of nationwide protests.

    The city of Mashhad in northeast Iran witnessed locals begin massive demonstrations, protesting difficult living conditions. The fire of these rallies quickly spread to over 140 cities across the country.

    The slogans heard, first focusing on skyrocketing prices and unprecedented poverty, quickly evolved into protesting the Iranian regime’s meddling in regional countries, the security atmosphere imposed throughout the society, corruption, cruelty, lack of social freedoms, and the rights of minorities and women.

    Protesters were seen describing the Iranian regime leader as a “dictator” and “murderer,” demanding Ali Khamenei step down from power. U.S. President Donald Trump immediately sent a series of tweets supporting the demonstrators and expressing his support. This backing by Trump and his administration continues to this day.

    U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has also sent a series of tweets describing the Iranian regime as “criminal,” adding 5,000 people were arrested in the country’s popular protests.

    “5,000 Iranians arrested in January’s protests. 30 women jailed for protesting the hijab. Hundreds of Sufi dervishes, dozens of environmentalists, 400 Ahwazis, 30 Isfahan farmers – all imprisoned by #Iran’s criminal regime. Iranian people deserve respect for their human rights,” Pompeo wrote in one tweet.

    What is the Iranian opposition seeking?

    Iran’s religious dictatorship lacks the tolerance of any voice of dissent. In Iran, all such dissent will be responded with bullets, imprisonment, torture, persecution, and arrest.

    The Iranian people, of which more than 80 percent live in poverty, do not wish to see their national treasures wasted on a nuclear program, ballistic missiles or exporting terrorism to Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Lebanon.

    Iran’s neighboring countries are reaching their limits in regards to Tehran’s meddling, saying enough is enough with the mullahs’ intervention in the wars of Syria and Yemen.

    It is quite natural that the world must hear these voices.

    With this objective in mind, the Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), along with various sectors of Iran’s society will be reiterating their demands in the upcoming Paris convention to garner further support for their ultimate victory of establishing and a free and democratic Iran, and providing the Iranian people the opportunity to realize their dreams.

    Who is the alternative to Iran’s regime? 

     

    Grand Gathering of Iranians-for a FreeIran

    June 22, 2018 – Following the ongoing Dec/Jan protests aimed at bringing freedom for Iran’s suffering people, there are two vital issues at hand:

    1. Overthrowing the mullahs’ dictatorship
    2. The alternative to this regime

    The more we trek forward, the question of who is this regime’s alternative becomes all the more imperative. In such sensitive circumstances it is quite natural to see many parties claiming to be the alternative to Tehran’s mullahs.

    It is also natural that all groups and individuals, associated or non-associated to a third party, those willing to sacrifice and opportunists seeking to jump at the opportunity, are surfacing and claiming to be patriotic in nature and opposing the ruling apparatus.

    This resembles the end of winter and the arrival spring, bringing about the birth of plants. Alongside flowers, however, we also witness the growth of weeds. Next to flowers we see tall and powerful trees full of leaves and blossoms.

    When the air speaks of a revolution and change, there are many parties seen rising from their sleep ready to hijack the ruling state, and willing to resort to any and all deceptive measure necessary.

    They begin to claim of having a long struggle history against the ruling regime, forging records of years in jail and enduring torture. Worst of all, through demonizing propaganda, they begin to hinder the efforts of truly democratic entities seeking to bring about real change.

    In such circumstances, the question is who is the true alternative to Iran’s regime?

    The history of revolutions across the globe provide the following realities:

    1) An alternative organ has members willing to sacrifice their all, and its enmity against the ruling regime is crystal clear for all parties.

    This entity, involved in a continuous war against  the enemy, has seen many of its members lose their lives fighting for their people.

    This entity also has seen many of its members imprisoned by different regimes ruling their country. These prisoners are resilient in the face of torture and harsh conditions, leading to their execution.

    This entity has complete faith in its objective, being freedom for its people.

    2) This alternative has roots in its nation and has risen for their cause.

    3) This alternative has access and relies on popular sources for its intelligence. When the enemy launches massive clampdowns, this alternative’s roots amongst the people allows it to obtain intelligence from the ruling regime and expose their true nature to the outside world.

    For example, the revelations made by the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) regarding the Iranian regime’s clandestine nuclear program.

    4) A true alternative should not be associated to any foreign power. It must be independent to the very meaning of the world and especially rely financially on its people and supporters.

    5) This alternative must have a strong, democratic organization.

    6) This alternative must have a specific leadership established around the cause of opposing the ruling regime and through the years proving its honesty and competence. The leadership must be fully involved in the struggle against the ruling dictatorship, paying the very price of all the sufferings.

    7) This alternative must represent people from all walks of life in society and focus its efforts to establish a democratic state.

    8) This alternative must be recognized on a global scale and establish this recognition through years of struggle.

    Looking at Iran, the only entity fitting such criteria is the Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), a parliament-in-exile led by NCRI President Maryam Rajavi.

    The Iranian Diaspora is planning to hold its annual convention on June 30th in Paris to express their support for democratic change in Iran.

    A new factor emerges and takes center stage in Iran 

    IRGCTerrorists

    By Nikoo Amini

    For more than four decades the Iranian regime has been investing heavily in increasing its influence in the region, interfering in the affairs of Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and even Yemen and North Africa. The US Secretary of State Mike Pumpou tweeted this, on, June 31: Iran’s corrupt regime has enriched IRGCHezbollah, and Hamas, and plundered the country’s wealth on proxy wars abroad while Iranian families struggle.

    In order hands, Pumpeo posted to other tweets yesterday as below:

    The wave of sanctions and the bankrupt economy has dropped the regime into the abyss and now Trump has told firms worldwide that they have three to six months to cut ties with Iran or face sanctions, too. Oil exports, which rose as a result of the deal, are already falling. While all these pressures are undoubtedly causing damage to the regime, it is the people of Iran and the Iranian resistance who will make the final statement about their country’s future. The change will be made in Iran by the Iranian people, and Western countries and the international community should be asking themselves whose side they will be standing on in this important development of history.
