The online summit is linking simultaneous rallies in major cities in Europe, the United States, and Australia, and it has more than 30,000 connection points for participants. It is the largest online gathering of its kind in support of a free Iran.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s “Free Iran Global Summit,” is being held virtually. But it has linked together supporters of a free Iran from more than 100 countries in five continents. The Iranian Resistance, including those who want to overthrow the ruling religious fascism both in Iran and Ashraf 3, Albania, home to members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), is attending, with participants spanning a 17-hour time difference.
Nearly 1,000 prominent figures, politicians, and parliamentarians from five continents will take part in the rally in solidarity and in support of the Iranian people’s quest for freedom. Speakers will include Mayor Rudy Giuliani; Senator Joe Lieberman; Michèle Alliot-Marie, Giulio Terzi, John Baird, and Anna Fotyga, the former Foreign Ministers of France, Italy, Canada, and Poland respectively; former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey; former French Minister of Human Rights Rama Yade; Ambassadors Robert Joseph, Lincoln Bloomfield, and Kenneth Blackwell; dignitaries such as Ingrid Betancourt and Linda Chavez; and representatives from the European, German, French, and Italian parliaments.
