    In Memory of Tulips and Angels of Freedom in Iran

    Many homeless people in Iran are sleeping in the graves. This poor woman says: I’ve been in the graves for five years -So far no government has come to help us.

    11 years old girl from Baluchistan Iran: She provides her family’s drinking water from this muddy water, while she should be in school. This is the poverty of All the while, the mullahs spend billions in Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and Iraq just to export terrorism.

    In the Mullahs regime of Iran, women are most under pressure and repression. I can’t have my dreams, I can’t even express a word of them …

    But the change is on the way. Women are the force of change. Iran will be free.

    But in response to these injustices, poverty and oppression and tyranny, the heroic people of Iran have risen.

    Watch how brave protesters in Iran fend away the regime’s anti-riot forces using just sticks and stones. Signs of a faltering regime. (Footage from Iran Protests in Kazerun sent via activists of the )

    This brave woman tussles with police & stops them from confiscating phone from a witness filming Iran Protests in Kazerun. Police: Hand over your phone.

    Woman: Let go. Get lost.

    And this battle will continue until the overthrow of the Mullah regime in Iran. But what is the solution to the future of Iran?

    The Right Policy to Tackle Iranian Regime 

    Support Iranian resistance.jpg

    Earlier this month, following more than a year of speculation, Donald Trump pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, citing its failure to protect the US and its allies as well as a failure to address all of the problems of the Iranian Regime.

    The deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was struck by Permanent Members of the UN Security Council (the US, the UK, China, Russia, and France) and Germany in the hope that the Iranian mullahs would reform if invited into the fold of international diplomacy.

    However, there was no evidence that the Regime was capable of reform and plenty that they would continue their expansion and aggression. In the years since, it has become apparent that the signatories were wrong to trust Iran and foolish to release the billions of dollars in frozen assets to them.

    This money did not improve the lives of the ordinary Iranians, but increased the Regime’s military budget and allowed them to fund wars in Syria (where they are propping up Bashar al-Assad to the tune of $24 billion per year), Iraq and Yemen. While many other countries in the region suffer because of the Iranian Regime’s sponsorship of terrorist groups.

    Once a rich nation, the people of Iran has lost everything because of the mullahs. The Regime isn’t even trying to hide it anymore, with Brig. Gen. Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf revealing on national television that 96% of the population is poor and the other 4% takes everything. Iran has a wealth of natural resources, but their people remain in poverty.

    Not content with plunging their people into poverty, the Iranian Regime arrests about 50 people per hour, according to Hassan Mosavi Chalk, Director of Iran’s Social Services Association. Their ‘crimes’ can range from peaceful political activism to not fasting during Ramadan to being a woman and wearing ripped jeans.

    The Iranian people are naturally furious at the Regime for this neglect and abuse, which is why they first took to the streets in a nationwide uprising calling for regime change. The Regime met this protest with a brutal crackdown.

    Reza Shafiee, wrote: “What is left of the JCPOA windfalls – after paying proxy terrorist group bills in the region – is spent on a variety of security forces in Iran. The regime provides theses forces with state-of-the-art gears to come down hard on protesters.”

    That hasn’t stopped the demonstrations. It may even have made the Iranian people more intent on fighting back, especially after NCRI President Maryam Rajavi encouraged the protests.

    The right policy

    So what could be the right policy to tackle Iran? It seems the international community has tried just about everything and nothing has worked.

    Well simply, they should support the people’s call for regime change as this is the only thing that can remove Iran’s threat to the world as a whole.

    Iran, Kazerun in fire and blood: The mullahs regime once again showed its criminal face by opening fire to the people. The uprising continues until the overthrow of the regime. 

     

    Kazerun-1

    A number of wounded demonstrators in Kazerun

    Kazerun protests, from January to this day

    Iran, May 17, 2018 – The city of Kazerun in Fars Province of southern Iran ignited once again on Wednesday, May 16th. People from all walks of life protesting the Iranian regime’s policies rallied at the city’s Shohada (Martyrs) Square and marched towards the governor’s office.

    The demonstrators were chanting:

    “No fear, we’re all together”

    “Beware of the day we are armed”

    “Proud Kazerunis, unite”

    “We’re ready to defend Kazerun”

    Protests in Kazerun began on January 2nd where demonstrators were heard chanting “Death to Dictator” and condemning the Iranian regime’s policies through slogans such as:

    “Let go of Syria, think about us”

    On March 8th locals rallied outside the city’s governor office, protesting a plot to divide their city into two towns.

    On April 9th locals continued these protests and continued into the following days.

    On April 17th thousands of Kazerun residents rallied in the city’s main square. Store-owners refused to open their shops. Protesters were chanting:

    “No fear, we’re all together”

    “Protests will continue until we get our rights”

    “Proud Kazerunis, we will not give into shame”

    These demonstrations led to clashes between protesters & state police.

    On April 18th local officials claimed the plan to divide the city has come to a halt. Protesters, however, refused to accept these claims and demanded answers from the provincial governor himself.

    The next day protests in Kazerun reached a new climax, as thousands of locals held a demonstration while the city council, Friday prayer Imam, and state-run media had banned any protests. Women played a major role in this rally, emphasizing how unity among-st all of Iran’s people is needed to stand against this regime.

    The rally continued into Friday, April 20th. Tens of thousands of locals entered the city mosque and completely disrupted the regime’s farce prayers.

    Sunday, April 22nd – Oppressive police units were stationed at a market close to the Shohada (Martyr) Square to prevent any gatherings from taking shape.

    Friday, April 27th – Thousands of Kazerun locals rallied at the city’s main center, marching towards the Friday prayer site chanting:

    “If we are betrayed, we will rise once again”

    “We are from Kazerun, we won’t accept division”

    “Officials from other cities must resign”

    Thursday, May 3rd – Large rally staged outside the city mosque, again protesting plans to divide the city.

    Following Wednesday night’s protests, authorities dispatched a column of anti-riot units from Shiraz and reports indicate over 100 protesters were arrested.

    Youths and families of those arrested rallied outside the Kazerun Intelligence Department demanding the release of all protesters.

    At least two protesters have been killed and a large number of others are wounded, including numerous women.

    Locals of Seif Abad have reportedly blocked a road leading to Kazerun to prevent further dispatching of anti-riot units from Shiraz.

    Maryam Rajavi hailed the people and martyrs of Kazerun, urged dispatch of UN probe mission

    Deadly clashes erupted on Wednesday night (May 16, 2018) between residents and state security forces in Kazerun,  after the authorities launched a clampdown on a peaceful anti-regime protest in the city earlier in the day.

    Reports from activists at the scene suggest at least 2 protesters were killed, dozens were injured and up to 150 were arrested as the regime attempted to stifle further dissent. In the course of clashes, a police station and a police vehicle were set ablaze. Video clips via activists of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) in the country.

    Wednesday night, the regime’s intelligence and State Security forces opened fire on people, killing a number of people protesting against the arrests of a large number of the city’s youths. More were wounded or arrested. At least two persons were shot to death according to reports from inside Iran.

    Kazerun wednesday night 16 May

    Kazerun, Wednesday night May 16, 2018

    In the wake of the regime’s criminal attacks Wednesday night on the defenseless people of Kazerun, the PMOI’s Social Headquarters inside Iran called on the residents of Kazerun and nearby cities to rush to the aid of the wounded and victims and support those arrested.

    The Iranian regime has disconnected Kazerun’s access to the internet and social media since last night to prevent spreading of the news of the city’s uprising. However, the ensuing clashes have been so extensive that the regime’s officials and news media had to make admissions on these protests.

    The people of Kazerun took to the streets once again this morning, Thursday, May 17, 2018, in protest to the clerical regime’s atrocities last night. The protesters were again attacked by the State Security forces and clashes broke out. Shootings and tensions have continued throughout the city.

    President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, hailed the heroic martyrs of Kazerun and the city’s brave and bereaved people. She has called for the immediate release of those arrested and urged her compatriots to rush to the aid of those wounded. Mrs. Rajavi also called for the dispatch of a UN investigative delegation and a representative of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to examine the situation first hand.

      The mullahs’ actions are nothing short of barbaric. The whole world should be openly denouncing their actions. The same for Israel and their murder of the Palestinian protesters.

    On June 30, the World Will See an Alternative Iran 

    June 30-free Iran-Villepinte Exposition -Paris – France

    What’s often missing in discussions of Western policy on Iran is the role of the Iranian people and their desires. A comprehensive policy must before all else take into consideration events on the ground in Iran or else it would yet again fail to address one of the most crucial foreign policy issues of recent times.

    The wave of protests which started at the end of last year and continued through the New Year shook not only the regime in power but the entire world. The people of Iran poured onto the streets across the country rejecting the clerical regime in its entirety. Chants of “death to Khamenei and Rouhani” and “reformists, hardliners, the game is over” left no doubt that the people of Iran want regime change and nothing short of that. The people called for a republic and a free Iran. To the surprise of many Iran experts and governments in the West, the core of the people on the streets of over 140 cities were the same sector of the society which were wrongly thought to be the power base of the clerical regime. Indeed, the entire nation is demanding regime change.

    On June 30, 2018 Iranians from across the world, free from the yoke of the mullahs, will join in Paris, in an extraordinary event “Free Iran; The Alternative.” Tens of thousands are expected to participate in the gathering. Each Iranian attending the rally represents dozens, if not hundreds or thousands, of brave Iranians inside the country who are protesting for regime change. The event has already been publicized inside Iran through social media, and messages of support for the event are coming from civil society. The people of Iran see the June 30 event as the echo of their own cry for freedom.

    The annual gathering of Iranians in previous years had drawn some 100,000 participants. However, this year’s event, given the domestic situation and the international developments, is unique. The event heralds the dawn of freedom for the people of Iran and an end to the nightmare of spread of Islamic fundamentalism and instability in the region.

    Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), which includes the largest resistance force inside Iran, the PMOI (MEK), said in the 2017 annual gathering that regime change in Iran is necessary and within reach. The wave of protests proved the correctness of the message which at time was confronted by some skepticism by governments and many ‘Iran experts’. The message this year is short but very precise: Iran has a democratic alternative – thus, setting aside the misguided notion, advocated by the Iranian regime’s lobby, that regime change would lead to chaos.

    For far too long, the people of Iran and their desires were ignored. For many years, the West looked at Iran from very narrow spectacles. It is time to realize that the mullahs’ regime cannot exist without suppression at home and export of terrorism abroad. Silence regarding the criminal mullahs, let alone wittingly or unwittingly empowering those responsible for, and the perpetrators of, the massacre of the Iranian nation, will only embolden the religious dictatorship’s warmongering, export of fundamentalism and terrorism. The end of religious dictatorship in Iran is a requisite for regional peace, democracy, security, and stability. This is the only way to end war and crisis in the region and avert a larger war.

    It is time to listen to the Iranian people and set aside the old inertia and look at the alternative to the mullahs and the prospect of a new Iran, a Free Iran. An Iran governed by the rule of law. An Iran in which women enjoy full equality with men including in the political leadership. An Iran in which there is no room for compulsory veil or compulsion in religion. An Iran in which national and religious ethnicities live in harmony, work together and hand in hand to rebuild the country from the ruins left by the mullahs.

    This event is also unique because in the midst of partisanship on both sides of the Atlantic, dignitaries, politicians and lawmakers from both sides of the aisle will join each other to support the Iranian people in their dream and desire for a free and democratic Iran. Americans and Europeans, Democrats and Republicans, Conservatives and Christian Democrats as well as Social Democrats and Socialists will address the rally along with representatives of Iranian communities.

    The composition of Iranians attending the rally, the bond between the millions on the streets of Iran and those attending the Paris rally, and the united front of Iranians from different political tendencies will show that there exists within the organized opposition the capacity to lead the protests in Iran to ultimate regime change. The regime’s Supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, has already expressed concern about the role of the MEK in organizing the protests in Iran. That is why Hassan Rouhani called on France’s President with a disgraceful demand to restrict the legitimate activities of the NCRI and MEK.

    Last year more than 500 international dignitaries attended the gathering, including former Prime Ministers, government officials, and Members of Parliament. They included the former French Minister of Foreign Affairs Bernard Kouchner; the former President of Germany’s Bundestag Rita Suessmuth; and the former UK Minister of Northern Ireland from Europe as well as Ambassador John Bolton, Senator Joe Lieberman, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Gov. Ed Rendell, and former US House Speaker Newt Gingrich from America.

    The Free Iran gathering of June 30, 2018 will present to the world an alternative to the mullahs’ regime for a future free and democratic Iran.

    The gap from top to bottom in the clerical regime of Iran 

    The gap from top to bottom in the clerical regime of Iran

    By Masoud Dalvand

    The blow of US’s withdrawal from Iran Deal and its reflections within the regime is rising every day and worsens the battles of the gangs. One of the latest examples is the conflict between the Assembly of Experts(Khobregan) and the gang of regime’s president Mullah Rouhani Because of Iran Deal and the continuation of this event.

    In this regard, on May 13, a statement was issued by the Assembly of Experts against the Rouhani and in the direction of Khamenei‘s acquittal and blaming on the Iran Deal’s disgrace and called for a Rouhani apology from the people: “It is imperative that the honorable President, honestly and explicitly, apologize to the dear people of Iran for the damage caused by the failure of ” Iran deal” for lack of comply with the red lines drawn by the Supreme Leader of the Revolution and put the experience of “Iran deal” as a light on the way of future.»

    But still -according to a proverb- the ink of this statement not dried, the authenticity of the statement was questioned by a number of members of the Assembly of Experts, and this was denounced. Among the experts, including Mullah Hashem Zadeh Harrisi, stated that “This statement is not all the Experts. The request to apologize the president for the “Iran deal” is not the opinion of the Assembly of Experts … The society is feverish … these events only cause discomfort and despair of the people … ”

    Mullah Moghtadaei was another member of the Assembly of Experts, who stated: “The opposition of Rouhani’s state inside the country, in the current situation, should not be as happy as Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu has.”

    Another expert, Mullah Abtahi, also said that the statement of the experts was not the opinion of all the members and that if I knew I would not sign the statement. And finally there were other people involved in the fight.

    Is this war and fights a continuation of the conflicts and controversies that have always been in the regime, or a new phenomenon and its own characteristics? with a little thinking about these conflicts, we see they are continuation of the same contradictions, but to another credit, we face a new quality of accumulation and congestion and the evolution of those contradictions. Why so:

    First of all, we see now that war and conflict are at the top and the highest point of the regime’s power pyramid.

    Secondly, all organs and institutions of the regime from the parliament to the Assembly of Experts and to the Revolutionary Guards, the government, the judiciary, and so on have involved.

    Thirdly, we also see the gap in these institutions. For example, in the parliament we are witnessing the clash of representatives of the two gangs. Or, in the Assembly of Experts, it was not until now that the experts took a position and made a statement, and some of its members would take a stand and speak against it.

    We see these gaps in the Rouhani’s gang and even within the state. For example, Rouhani’s adviser criticizes to his government minister, or the media criticize it from various positions.

    Is this conflict between the Experts and the government and within the limits of these two institutions above the regime? And why do we call it a fight and a gap at the head of the regime?!

    No! When we say that the struggle at the top of the regime, the war is at the point of Khamenei, which said on Wednesday (May 2, 2018): I said if you want to get the contract, take the necessary guarantees and then close them. One of the conditions I said was that the US president should sign. The respectable officials worked hard and, well, they could not. And then he added: “I do not trust these three countries (European Troika) … If you could make sure that it’s okay, of course I’m unlikely to know. If you cannot get a definitive guarantee, you will not be able to continue.

    This led to various statements in the media by Rouhani’s gang, including in the May 13 meeting, the parliament they chanted Khamenei whose accomplishment “Iran deal”, from the first to the last, was led by Khamenei and was signed. Then the Khamenei’s propagandists said that, they forced Khamenei to made such orders, but Rouhani’s government did not listen to Khamenei’s advices.

    Meanwhile, the government of Rouhani did not keep silent and issued a statement of eight articles entitled “Those who have smashed, now have been creditors instead of apologizing, do not contradict “, replied to the statement of the Assembly of Experts, denounced their position and, in addition to emphasizing Khamenei’s role, was raised. Tell us what to do, tell us what to do if we did not sign, and if we do not do it now, what to do.

    Part of this statement reads:

    “Unfortunately, those who have to apologize for their misplaced positions in the past are creditor for national achievements and are not willing to answer the question of how damaging the outrageous sanctions on the Iranian nation have been and what they have done to prevent them from timely prevention. They are never ready to speak of their inability to provide alternative ways of “Iran deal” and to apologize to the nation for their misleading approach to progress in the country. In an obvious contradiction they were worried about America’s presence in “Iran deal” and the other hand they have been as plaintiff of US’s withdrawal of Iran deal.

    In addition to the government itself, supporters of the government and other members of the Rouhani’s gang attacked the Assembly Experts. Including:

    Ali Motahhari‘s reaction to Ahmad Jannati’s letter about “Iran deal” was:

    Do you determine the religious duty of the diplomatic system or your supreme leader?

    Interestingly, the parties to the dispute, despite the fact that they are aware of the danger of the situation and read the unity’s weep of one another, cannot even temporarily establish cease-fire between themselves.

    The reason is that the fuel of this war is a dangerous situation and the prospect of the overthrow of this regime. But they are not able to stop it. Because in the current situation is not the field for compromise, the crisis bedside, in itself, promotes war, but it is important that the ruling gangs with this conflict constantly weak each other and the whole regime and pave the way for the overthrow of the religious dictatorship by the people’s uprising led by the Iranian resistance. This is the logic of history and they do not escape it.
