    International solidarity with the Iranian people’s Resistance 

    Solidarity-with-the-historic-resistance-of-the-people-of-Iran--12

    ‌‌A number of personalities and dignitaries from around the world attended an event at the residential quarters of Maryam Rajavi, held after the Grand Gathering of Iranians on June 30, 2018. They declared solidarity with the Iranian Resistance, condemned the crimes of the repressive clerical regime, and expressed support for the Iranian people’s struggle for freedom.

    A declaration signed by over 2,500 European parliamentarians in support of the Iranian people’s nationwide uprising and the Ten-Point Plan for a free Iran based on democracy and equality, a declaration of support by members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, and a declaration of support for the Iranian Resistance signed by the Rt. Rev. Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and 75 other bishops from across the U.K. were presented to Maryam Rajavi.

    In brief remarks, Maryam Rajavi expressed her gratitude to the dignitaries who participated in the Iranian Resistance’s grand gathering. Excerpts:

    The event this year was held in a very different circumstance than last year. Iranian cities have been the scenes of major anti-regime protests. The social atmosphere is volatile and the Iranian people demand regime change. 
    To disappoint them, the mullahs tell the people of Iran that no one hears their voice. And to justify their appeasement of the mullahs, their proponents claim that there is no viable alternative to this regime. These efforts, however, are getting no-where.

    The event this year was also different, because the international situation has dramatically changed. It appears that the policy of appeasement has run its course, because it became clear that no amount of economic and political concessions will bring any change to the behavior of the ruling theocracy.

    Lending support to the Iranian people and Resistance for freedom, is crucial to a successful firm policy on the religious dictatorship ruling Iran. Toppling the mullahs’ regime is vital to restoration of the human rights of the Iranian people, and to bringing peace and tranquility to the Middle East. And I am confident that the Iranian people will succeed in bringing freedom to Iran.

    Thank you and God bless you all

    The inevitable confessions; The role of the PMOI/MEK in organizing uprisings and nationwide protests at the Iran regime’s media 

    The inevitable confessions- The role of the PMOI-MEK in organizing uprisings and nationwide protests at the Iran regime's media

    After more than 7 months of nationwide protests in Iran, which began in January 2018, these uprisings and protests and strikes continue to occur, and each day is more organized and more powerful than the past in various cities of Iran.

    The latest protests in August in a large number of cities, including in the capital of Tehran, with slogans of “Death to dictator” and “Death to Khamenei” representing the will of the Iranian people to overthrow of the religious dictatorship and establish freedom, democracy, justice and human rights based on a Democratic Government in Iran.

    What is significant in the process of these uprisings is the role of the PMOI/MEK in organizing these protests through rebellion hubs. Recently, the MOIS (Ministry of Intelligence) made a video about role of rebellion hubs of MEK, and has spread it in the regime’s media and acknowledged this role.

    The media, experts, and various agents of the mullahs’ regime also admit to this crucial role in their media every day.

    Below, we just read some of these confessions for example, indicating the state of the regime on the verge of overthrowing by the Iranian people and resistance.

    Vatan Today Newspaper -July 3-IRGC member, Hassan Rouzitalab an expert of the regime on the MEK: “The MEK has been on top of the social media scene from the start. They attract political activists in the streets and ordinary people and convince them to be MEK resources.”

    “More than 70% of calls to protest and video coming out of the protests… are related to MEK channels. Massoud Rajavi has issued five statements about the protests and clashes since December which is really unprecedented in recent years.”

    “MEK forces have divvied up the cities among themselves and organized protest veterans in the streets into Telegram groups in a process that has taken several years. For example, in one small town there are over 5,000 members in various groups who have the means to coordinate a place and time for gatherings there. Their behavior and slogans are all related to the MEK… Direct calls for overthrow, it was heard everywhere (in all cities) and was repeated frequently. “

    July 14, Tasnim new agency, IRGC Brigadier General, Jalali, Chief of the passive defense organization: “Year 2018 is a special year. We are in an important turning point in the history of the revolution …. It is noteworthy that all counter-revolution has been designed on the basis of the PMOI. “

    July 21, Fasl-e-Tejarat (Trade season site) Ali Rabie Minister of Labor: Today our enemies, particularly the MEK, are targeting the social issues in the country, something that was very apparent in the issue of the truckers… Various networks were activated to transform this demand as a protest by the MEK in the shortest possible time…

    July 25, Qom news- Mohammad Khan Bloki, Director General of the Shipping Union of the regime: “The majority of the people that guided the truckers’ gatherings to insurrection were from the MEK who had infiltrated this social sector.”

    August 1, Fars News AgencyReza Hosseini, consultant to Soft Wars HQ of the Armed Forces:

    “We have to pay attention to what the MEK did in the 1980s to understand how they have resurfaced again and have advanced to the forefront and leadership stage in some sectors. Sometimes it is said that these guys (MEK) have been killed off and don’t mention them anymore!… As an expert I will tell you that anyone who says the MEK is dead either has a bad motive or is ignorant.”

    August 1, the same source adds: “The MEK are creating waves today. They have entered into various social strata like the truckers and bazaar owners and provide them with direction. Right now they have influence in the universities, particularly in provincial capitals. That is why we sometimes hear discourses in university settings that are the MEK’s narrative.”

    August 2, Tasnim News Agency (Quds Terrorist force’s agency) Mullah Ahmad Salek, a member of Iran’s Majlis (parliament): “Affiliated to pro-Khamenei faction, said of the recent workers’ protests in Esfahan: “The slogans that were chanted in the demonstration were directed by the MEK through foreign news channels.”

    Next step: Recognizing the NCRI as Iran’s alternative 

    maryam-rajavi-at-the-resistances-grand-gathering-in-paris--june-30-2018_43117915952_o

    Free Iran Gathering, Paris, June 30, 2018

    As discussions about sanctioning the Iranian regime continues and European countries and companies continue to weigh their options, a recently foiled terror plot in the heart of the Green Continent should provide something to think about.

    The Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) rally in Paris was the target of an Iranian regime-blueprinted bomb plot, leading to the shocking arrest of Iranian “diplomat” who personally delivered the bomb to the operating team, according to European security services surveying his moves.

    As the United States is putting aside the failed Iran appeasement policy, Europe is encouraged to follow in such foot-steps. It is high time to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Iranian people as they continue protests across the country.

    The NCRI’s June 30th rally once again reminded the international community of how there is a viable alternative to the mullahs’ regime struggling to realize democratic regime change for nearly 40 years.

    Hundreds of high-profile international figures from across the globe attended the rally, including former prime ministers, foreign ministers, diplomats, ambassadors, members of parliament and an astronomical list of notable dignitaries from the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa were on hand to support the democratic alternative to the mullahs’ terrorist state.

    The NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi delivered the keynote speech at the massive rally.

    The flames of the protests cannot be extinguished, and they will continue to soar without respite, indicating a constantly expanding and deepening uprising,” she said.

    “Everyone senses the explosive state of Iranian society. The mullahs can offer no solution and are neither willing nor able to resolve the problems. The Velayat-e faqih (absolute clerical rule) lacks all legitimacy.

    Mrs. Rajavi went on to offer an alternative in the form of the parliament-in-exile NCRI:

    We call for the establishment of a society based on freedom, democracy, and equality, which has clear demarcation lines against despotism and dependence as well as gender, ethnic and class discrimination. We have defended and will continue to defend gender equality, the right to freely choose one’s attire, separation of religion and state, autonomy of nationalities, equal political and social rights for all citizens of Iran, abolition of the death penalty, freedom of expression, parties, the media, assembly, unions, associations, councils and syndicates.

    It is time for the international community to face the undeniable facts. The Iranian people are uprising to overthrow the decaying mullahs’ regime. In parallel fashion, the alternative to the mullahs is becoming stronger by the day.

    Democratic regime change through the NCRI and MEK grassroots movement is the only realistic and available solution to the Iranian crisis. The first step in such a direction is recognizing the NCRI and Mrs. Rajavi as the democratic alternative to the mullahs.

    Early Consequences of Sanctions Against Iran 

    Early Consequences of Sanctions Against Iran

    By Masoud Dalvand

    These days, the heated and controversial discussion of Iran’s sanctions has attracted attention and put the ruling mullahs in Iran at a deadly deadlock.

    Sanctions against Iran, in particular the sanctions on Iran’s oil, are actions taken by some countries in the world to propose a United States to prevent or restrict Iran’s nuclear program. The sanctions are aimed at removing the mullah’s regime from oil revenues and forcing them to cooperate with the international community to stop the construction of nuclear weapons and nuclear warheads.

    These sanctions are imposed through an immediate solution, i.e. boycott of purchases or buyers, or indirect ones, such as boycotting tanker ships or boycotting banks, with the aim of eliminating the purchasers of the oil and turning them to other suppliers of this commodity.

    Following US withdrawal from Iran deal or JCPOA on May 8, 2018, the US Treasury Department announced that sanctions against Iran would commence again in the 90th and 180th days after the withdrawal of Iran deal.

    Accordingly, the first US embargo against Iran will begin on August 6, 2018, and after this deadlock, the Iranian regime will not be able to buy the US dollar or trade gold or other commodities.

    In addition, sanctions against Iran will be imposed in the area of ​​aluminum, steel, coal, Dollar exchange and automobile industry, and significant restrictions will be imposed on transactions with Rial outside Iran.

    Iran-Root-Cause-of-Economic-Crisis

    The second US sanctions package against Iran will be operational on November 4, 2018.

    From now on, international restrictions will apply to the activities of the National Iranian Oil Company and the purchase of oil, petrochemicals and petroleum products from Iran will be subject to sanctions.

    The Iranian shipping industry, the activities of the Central Bank of Iran and the Western financial institutions, as well as those whose names were removed from the sanctions list on January 16, 2016, would be subject to further sanctions.

    The Consequences of the first phase of the sanctions

    At this point, those who came to Iran with a deal with sanctions are back to the sanctions list.

    It should be kept in mind that Iran was one of the world’s largest oil producers and issued billions of dollars of oil and gas annually. But Iran’s oil production, along with its GDP, fell dramatically with international sanctions.

    At the same time, it should be borne in mind that such sanctions will go beyond the scope of the relationship between Iran and the United States, in such a way that all non-US companies that interact with the Iranian market will aim at unilateral US sanctions.

    At a news conference July 2, State Department Policy Planning Director Brian Hook, said that Washington is “safe enough” to supply oil to replace Iran’s crude oil.

    The US goal is “to increase the pressure on the Iranian regime to cut its oil revenues and bring it to zero.”

    This equilibrium will be offset by OPEC, India and Saudi Arabia.

    The Consequences of the second phase of the sanctions

    According to US sanctions, the US Treasury Department will review the performance of the Iranian oil purchasers six months after the withdrawal from Iran deal (November 2018) and, if they have not complied with the sanctions law, countries banks that buy Iran oil and pay to the Central Bank of Iran (such as Chinese, Korean or Indian banks) are subject to sanctions. The United States has announced that all countries and companies that will cooperate with Iran after November 4, 2018 will be subject to US sanctions.

    What is the real solution to the crisis?

    Now and after all the sanctions and political and economic equations, the people of Iran say the last words. They want a government that, instead of investing heavily in terrorism, promote peace and prosperity and peaceful coexistence with its neighbors.

    As Mariam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), recently said in a statement:

    The disastrous state of the economy and the foreign exchange market is the direct product of the regime’s depravity. The free fall of the value of Rial to the world’s lowest is a consequence of the rule of the mullahs who have destroyed everything to preserve their power.

    The mullahs have no solution for containing the chaotic state of the economy and all their measures and plans have failed. Sacking the Central Bank’s president, arresting bazaar merchants, spreading lies and false pretenses are no longer effective.

    Iran’s crumbling economy cannot be saved unless by toppling the regime.

    Hence, in these days, more courageous than ever, the Iranian people in Tehran, Mashhad, Karaj, Shiraz, Isfahan and Rasht and other cities scream the overthrow of the religious dictatorship and say death to the dictator. It is the right of the Iranian people to live in peace and freedom and in a democratic country, with a prosperous economy. Enough of war and destruction, terrorism and corruption and poverty.

    The wave of nationwide strikes, protests and uprisings in the cities of Iran 

    Iran Uprising

    This article is based on reports and videos sent by PMOI/MEK activists inside Iran

    Iran, July 31, 2018 – Tuesday has been the scene of numerous protests and demonstrations in cities across Iran.

    Strike, Protest in Isfahan: Beginning this morning, Tuesday, July 31, truck drivers and owners as well as large group of people and youth in the city of Isfahan have been staging a protest against spiraling high prices, repeated power outages and inhuman policies of the clerical regime in the city’s Amirkabir (now called new Shapour) industrial district. They subsequently marched toward the city’s main streets.

    Shop keepers have stopped work and all shops are shut down. Enraged over the runaway inflation, high prices, corruption and repression, the crowd were chanting: “Death to high prices, death to unemployment,” “death to the dictator,” “dignified Shapouris, support us, support us,” “dignified Iranians, support us, support us,” and “incompetent officials, resign, resign.”

    Referring to the regime’s hollow promises, they are chanting “these are all lies.” The city’s industrial workers are taking parts in the demonstration by carrying a placard protesting against high prices and terrible living conditions.

    A large group of repressive forces and anti-riot units have been stationed on the scene and on different streets to disperse the crowd and prevent its expansion.

    Protests erupt in several Iranian cities, Karaj, Rasht, Shiraz  over economic troubles and the rotten dictatorship of the mullahs:

    Karaj demonstration started the late afternoon with many young protesters chanting anti-government slogans. The youth are chanting “the people are begging while mullahs are living like Gods.”

    Residents of Gohardasht in Karaj, especially women challenged security forces and protested against skyrocketing high cost of living and the spiraling economic crisis.

    Security forces attack protesters in Karaj.

    July 31 – Karaj: Protesters chanting: “Reformist – Hardliner – the game is over”

    Protesters chant the game is over for both factions of the regime the so called reformists and fundamentalists.

    July 31, Gohardasht Karaj:  Protesters chanting: “Death to the dictator (Khamenei)” “Beware of the day we take up arms”

    Following Karaj, protests erupted in Shiraz, with demonstrators pouring into the streets and chanting slogans against the regime for increasing unemployment rates and the down-spiral in the country’s economy.

    Update: 9:00 PM local time: In Shiraz, security forces have started targeting protesters with tear gas. According to local reports, security forces have injured a young boy who had attended the protest along with his mother.

    The protests that began in different Iranian cities this afternoon have reached Rasht, Gilan province. The people of Rasht are chanting, “Death to high prices. Don’t be afraid. We’re together.” While the protests were triggered by economic grievances, the protesters of Rasht quickly turned their rage toward the Iranian regime in its entirety.

    Following reports of large protests in the central city of Isfahan, Rasht, Ahvaz, Zanjan, Tabriz and a number of other cities, now there are reports of protests and clashes in the city of Karaj, northwest of Tehran.

    People chant “as long as the dictator is ruling Iran, the uprising will continue

    The Iranian regime’s security forces tried to control the situation in Karaj by attacking the protesters, but the people confronted them.

    Since nationwide protests erupted across Iran in December, demonstrations have continued in different cities and quickly turn into anti-government protests.

    The people of Karaj also call on their fellow countrymen to rise in their support and encouraged the merchants of the bazaar for supporting protesters.

    Maryam Rajavi, President elect  of the National Council of Resistance of Iran(NCRI), sent messages in support of the protesters.

    Maryam Rajavi: Toppling the regime is the only solution for saving Iran’s economy 

    Maryam-Rajavi-Toppling-the-regime-is-the-only-solution-for-saving-Irans-economy

    Honorable bazaaris of Tehran, Isfahan, Shahr-e Ray, Tabriz, Qeshm, Karaj, Bandar Abbas, Rasht, Shahriar, and other cities,

    I salute you all for rising up again and resuming your strikes against the usurper clerical regime.

    The uprising which started last December is continuing to carry on thanks to the efforts of our people across the country, from Kazerun to IsfahanKhuzestan and Baneh, from truck drivers and truck owners, to the workers of Haft Tappeh Sugarcane factory and the Steel Factory of Ahvaz, and merchants of bazaar in various cities. Today, the bazaaris and the truck drivers and owners echo the voice of the Iranian people against the mullahs’ destructive rule.

    The disastrous state of the economy and the foreign exchange market is the direct product of the regime’s depravity. The free fall of the value of Rial to the world’s lowest is a consequence of the rule of the mullahs who have destroyed everything to preserve their power.

    It is the consequence of squandering Iran’s wealth and revenues on the criminal war in Syria, and on export of terrorism and fundamentalism to other countries.

    It is the consequence of the devouring of the greater portion of Iran’s economy by Khamenei, the IRGC and state-backed foundations, which has left no business opportunity for bazaar merchants and has put the lion’s share of Iran’s consumers market at the disposal of major shopping centers owned by the IRGC and other regime factions.

    The mullahs have no solution for containing this chaotic situation and all of their measures and plans have failed. Sacking the Central Bank’s president, arresting bazaar merchants, spreading lies and false pretenses are no longer effective. Iran’s crumbling economy cannot be saved unless by toppling the regime.

    Expanding the protests to bring down the corrupt regime of theft and destruction is the only solution.

    I urge the valiant youth of Iran and the resistance units to support the strikes of bazaaris.

    As Massoud Rajavi said, “The people of Iran are the ones who have the final say, with their arisen resistance units, the revolting cities, and the National Liberation Army.”

    Getting to know the Iranian regime’s main opposition 

    Interim-Session-of-the-National-Council-of-Resistance-of-Iran-10

    The National council of Resistance of Iran with Maryam Rajavi as the president

    On June 20, 1981, the security forces of the Iranian regime opened fire on a peaceful, 500,000–strong demonstration in Tehran, putting a violent end in a tenuous era of peaceful political activism that had started in February 1979 after popular protests toppled the Shah regime and saw the rise of Ruhollah Khomeini and the mullahs to power. On the morrow of June 20, the regime’s forces would arrest, torture and execute anyone affiliated with opposition groups, especially the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

    On July 21, while Khomeini’s regime was fast busy arresting and executing Iranian opposition members by the droves, Massoud Rajavi, the leader of PMOI/MEK, founded the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), a coalition of all forces that sought freedom and democracy in Iran.

    Months later, the headquarters of the NCRI were moved to France to create a political umbrella for the struggle for freedom inside Iran.

    At present, 37 years later, the NCRI is the largest and longest standing coalition of Iranian opposition groups against the regime of Tehran and has managed to stand despite countless conspiracies by the Iranian regime and its foreign allies and proponents. Regardless of their station, the members of the NCRI take active part in protests, demonstrations and activities that aim to expose the Iranian regime’s brutality and promote democracy and freedom in Iran.

    The members of the NCRI each have an equal voice and vote in the decisions of the Council, regardless of their political and organizational affiliations. The NCRI’s charter states it seeks to topple the Khomeini regime and to establish a transitional government which will represent all faiths, ethnicities and political tendencies. The transitional government’s main goal is to prepare the grounds for a democratic state and will last a maximum of six months, until the country becomes ready for free and fair elections.

    During the six-month transitional period, Iran’s new constitutional parliament will take shape and will oversee the elections.

    The NCRI is an inclusive coalition, where all walks of life have a voice. More than half of the members of the NCRI are women, a stark contrast to the mullah-ruled Iran, where women are oppressed and under-represented.

    The political platform of the NCRI is summarized by the 10-point plan of its president-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, which has garnered support among political figures, religious leaders and rights activists worldwide, because it addresses all the problems that the world and the Iranian people face in respect with the Iranian regime. Following are key highlights of Mrs. Rajavi’s platform:

    • Free and fair elections and popular vote is the only legitimate path to political power.
    • Respect for freedom of expression, media, political affiliation, and assembly, along with unconditional and uncensored access to internet and other sources of information.
    • The abolishment of the death penalty.
    • Separation of church and state: Freedom of religion and the banning of any form of discrimination based on religion.
    • Gender equality: Banning of discrimination against women and the abolishment of laws that undermine women’s rights in marriage, divorce, clothing, education and employment.
    • Modern legal and judiciary structures: The abolishment of the mullahs’ Sharia law and the incorporation of the presumption of innocence, the right to defense and the right to be tried in a public court.
    • Commitment to human rights based on the Universal Declaration of Humans Rights, and its international covenants and conventions.
    • Commitment to a market economy, with equal opportunity for all Iranians.
    • Peaceful coexistence with other countries and an end to the meddling and destabilizing activities of the mullahs’ regime.
    • Commitment to a non-nuclear Iran. Banning of the development of weapons of mass destruction.

    The Need for Terrorism in the Rule of Velayat-e Faqih in Iran 

    The Need for Terrorism in the Rule of

    Since 40 years ago, with the Khomeini’s achievement to the rule of Iran and the establishment of the Velayat-e faqih regime, “assassination” has been one of the most important and vital means to maintain the dominance of Velayat-e faqih. Quantities and figures, as well as the disclosure of these assassinations are not considered in this note and article. In this regard, significant revelations have been made by the Iranian Resistance.

    In this article, I want to look at some of the motives that the clerical regime, including terrorism based on it, uses as a solution to consolidate the foundations of its political domination.

    In examining the inherent features of the Velayat-e faqih regime, which constitutes terrorism as an integral part of this rule, one can mention the following:

    1 Denial of the freedom and authority for human

    2 belonging to the Middle Ages and lack of the ability to adapt to social evolution

    3 Monopoly in Political Power

    4 Occupation in the sovereignty

    5 Intimidating

    6 Neglecting the main alternative of the Velayat-e faqih (Alternative) regime

    These six features are filters that do not allow the diversity of opinion and dissent, the public participation, the right to free choice and democracy to the rule of the Velayat-e faqih. On the other hand, since these attributes are typical attributes of civilized human societies, this sovereignty always perceives itself against these features in an impasse, a disillusionment, an abomination, anger, and hatred. Therefore, it is a good way to deal with these features in the elimination and physical destruction of their carriers. Therefore, breathing in the atmosphere and the atmosphere of terrorism and inhaling it is a vital requirement for expressing the existence of the system of Velayat-e faqih. The terror card, like a sword in the pod, is always ready to respond and provide for the survival of the sovereignty.

    Denial of the freedom and authority for human

    The principle of Velayat-e faqih and the reactionary ideology of the clerical regime do not perceive the liberty and authority of man.

    In such thinking, the Velayat-e faqih is the representative of God and the extraterrestrial being created by humans for his service and companionship; Hence, they are “small” and “flock”! Therefore, independence and the free choice of any thought, thought and belief are considered as a deviation from the WaliFakyah. To the extent that it is inactive, the dissident can remain silent and alive in the order and obligation of the Velayat-e faqih; however, if someone protects and advocates the independence of thought and dissent and their free choice, their right to life will be abolished and cause applying the apostate, hypocrite, infidel, divine and deviant from the divine path and his representative, Wali Faqih. The decree of such dissent is death. This death must either be carried out by the representative of the Wali Faqih in the judiciary or by assassination.

    One of the fundamentals of the regime’s policy in dealing with ethnic and religious minorities, as well as political and cultural groups since 1979, has come from such a special feature.

    Belonging to the Middle Ages and not having the ability to adapt to social evolution

    One of the characteristics and peculiarities of the current Iranian society is its similarity with the era that in the 15th and 16th centuries led to the Renaissance movement. The main feature of this period was the stagnation of static and frozen thoughts with dissent, modernism, wisdom and enlightenment. In this battle, the church should come down from behind the clouds of holiness and immolation, and it was logic, rationality, innovation, and philosophy and science as a means to explain and understand the world. In the essence of the Renaissance movement, it was the freedom and authority that a church would have to rule upon its admission.

    It is very clear that through the struggles of the 40th anniversary of the people and the leaders of freedom and enlightenment, Iranian society could stand against the thought and explanation of the dilemma of Khomeini and the mullahs from the “man, society and history” and pay its heavy price with thousands of angels of freedom. The payment of this price was due to the battle with the prominent character of this medieval ruler who, with the massacre and executions on the streets of Iran and the world, could not confront the social development of Iran and its pioneers.

    Monopoly in Political Power

    Political sovereignty and the resulting power in democratic and popular systems arise from the free choice of the citizens and their representatives. The purpose of such a government is to advance and realize personal, social, national, patriotic and human prosperity. Thus, such political power derives its legitimacy from the sovereignty of the people and is therefore not absolute and is criticism and substitute. In such a structure, sovereignty is an opportunity to present programs and competitions and turn out the best ideas for the development of the nation and the homeland.

    In the sovereignty of Velayat-e faqih, with deception and deceit, political power is attributed to God and comes from “superior will”. What is sacrificed at the first step is the sovereignty of the people and the freedom of choice of citizens.

    On the basis of such power and sovereignty, “others” have no place in political and ideological and cultural terms in governing and political power. Therefore, the political, ideological and cultural presence of their sovereignty is considered to be a rival and alternative. Therefore, they must either endorse and honor or be recorded on the list of threats. This list is always ready for assassination alongside the podgy sword. From then on, how to regulate the relationship and its relations with the sovereignty of the Wali-Faqih, its fate and its life.

    This feature is inclusive with totalitarianism. It is a feature of Khomeini, and then Khamenei, no group, and someone outside the exclusive circle of power can not tolerate. Therefore, everyone should swear to the supreme leader to ensure the monopoly of power.

    Power is a special monopoly on the part of the “superior will” and entrusted to the Wali-Faqih. Denying and violating this monopoly is denied the right to life, and Its sentence includes deprivation of ordinary life, exile, imprisonment, isolation and exclusion, and if not, “terror”.

     Occupation in the sovereignty

    This government is not a rule of free will and democratic choice of the people. Khomeini, from the beginning, betrayed the promises made before the revolution, imposed a clerical assembly of people instead of the constituent assembly. This constitutional assembly passed the Velayat-e faqih, and the sovereignty of the Iranian nation was usurped and handed over to a beast called the Wali-Faqih.

    In February 1979, in parliamentary elections, Khomeini did not allow any opposition political group candidate, including MEK candidates, to run in parliament with fraud and crackdown.

    Representatives of the Wali Faghih have repeatedly acknowledged that people do not have the right to choose. If there is an election for the demagoguery and people make a comment, this opinion has no religious authority and the verdict is validated by the religious leader.

    Therefore, the right to vote and opinion about the fate of themselves and the country will be denied to the citizens. His vote is 80 million. He does not have any weight in terms of the Wali Faghih. Being or not having a citizen will have no effect on the fate of society and the environment. Hence, the people of Iran are in control of the occupation, which implements and enforces the laws of the occupied country.

    This peculiarity to the sovereignty of the occupier gives the authority to interfere in all matters of life of the nation. From this perspective, all people in the occupied country are suspected and threatened. The greatest cost should be spent on the continuation of occupation. From this perspective, the occupied people must be aware of their right to live on the occupying government. This nation is all “superior will” in the governorate and elected province; therefore, the lives and honor of the people and the amulets are hostages of the occupying power. Hence, the need for assassination and physical removal, the necessity of exercising sovereignty and guaranteeing the survival and consolidation of the foundations of power.

    The obvious feature of this occupation is to justify the assassinations, escape from any law and non-accountability for domestic and international complaints and protests and audits.

    Intimidating

    In a society where equality between men and women, dissent, democracy, pluralism and freedom in its entirety, as well as the critique of the absolute power of the Velayat-e faqih, are considered as a crime and a sin, the means of coping with these values ​​and necessities turn into a state of affairs that addresses all possible ways of a peaceful life It brings to the door. In such a society, the first victim is civility, law, and political and judicial rights. Therefore, the only possible way is to impose power through the promotion of fear and terror.

    Terrorism Iran

    Execution and assassination are like a lofty corridor whose first and second ends meet with fear and terror. Racial and religious fascists in mullahs’ regime use this weapon to promote fear and terror as the most effective tactical and strategic weapon.

    Execution and assassination are one of the main tools and foundations supporting the sovereignty of Velayat-e faqih, which has extended it from prisons to the streets of Iran and the cities of the world. The weapon is so effective for this sovereignty, and if even one day it stops, the elements of the clerical regime will be shaken. The propagation, propagation and propagation of the horror of executions and assassinations act as a spell of the glass of the life of this sovereignty. Therefore, it should be regarded as the main leverage of repression.

    Denial the main alternative of the Velayat-e faqih (Alternative) regime

    We need to point to a very important feature in the need for terrorism, which undoubtedly are the axes or previous features used to realize this very important principle: the negation of any alternatives or alternatives for the rule of the velayat-e faqih.

    From the outset, Khomeini chose and propagated the word “Islam”, the pseudonym “himself” and the clerical regime. With unsurpassed arrogance, he never denied the character of ‘Imam’; on the contrary, he always tried to dismiss it for the general public and, with many tricks, surrounded himself with a halo of sanctity and disintegration.

    Some later, he saw the intention and determination that he had learned from the very soon afterwards, under the title of “Velayat-e faqih” in the constitution and formalized. He even nominated his designated government to the “Imam of Time”!

    The same sanctity that was arranged and propagated around it was an attempt to eliminate any idea and probability of substitution, which is commonly found in the circle of ordinary political power and commonplace in democratic systems, and set itself the boundary of its inheritance. There is no sunset over this occupation and occupation.

    Such a structure, with a combination of power and holiness, does not discourage any opposition from its opponents and critics. All the behavior of Khomeini from the following February 12, 1980 indicates that this special feature is very important: The Islamic Republic should not have any alternative. Therefore, any possibility must be suppressed and destroyed with intensity and intensity.

    The vital need for terrorism to eliminate any substitution justifies all policies, strategies, deals, and clauses for this regime. In this need, it will pay for whatever price it needs. In this terrorism, any dignity, if any, goes down and trades.

    In the latest example of the need for terrorism in spite of the crisis of achievements, sanctions and uprisings in Iran, which threw the whole regime into turbulence and inflammation, it is willing to sacrifice its democratic alternative to bring the Iranian Resistance in Paris under because he sees in the PMOI and the National Council of Resistance of Iran and Its president, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi an alternative to It’s overwhelming and capable force.

    Regime Overthrow Is Certain, Iran Will Be Free

    Maryam Rajavi at the Resistance’s Grand Gathering in Paris, June 30, 2018

    Speech by Maryam Rajavi
    At the Resistance’s Grand Gathering in Paris
    June 30, 2018

    On Saturday, June 30, 2018, the Iranian Resistance’s grand gathering was held in Paris, France. Delegations from various countries including prominent politicians, members of parliaments, mayors, elected representatives, and international experts on Iran attended the event. The speakers declared their support for the Iranian people’s uprising and the democratic alternative, the National Council of Resistance of Iran. They called on the international community to adopt a firm policy against the mullahs’ religious fascist tyranny and stand by the arisen people of Iran. Below is the full text of her remarks.

    Regime-Overthrow-Is-Certain-Iran-Will-Be-Free-2

    My fellow compatriots,
    Dear Friends,
    Elected representatives, the honorable dignitaries from across the world

    Greetings to all of you and to my dear compatriots in Iran and the world over. The first thing that must be said today is that flames of the auspicious and liberating uprising are again rising in Tehran and across Iran: Again, Mashhad and Shiraz, Bandar Abbas and Qeshm, Karaj and Kermanshah, Shahriar, Islamshahr, Kashan, Arak, Isfahan, Ram Hormuz, and many other towns and cities.

    Indeed, the uprising cannot be extinguished and will continue without respite, constantly expanding and deepening.

    The roar in the cities and of rebellious youths are the heartbeats of the Iranian nation in the euphoria over a free Iran.

    The thunderous cities and the rebellious youths are the heartbeats of the Iranian nation in the euphoria for a free Iran.

    Hail to my fellow compatriots in Khorramshahr who are thirsting for water and for freedom. You, who explicitly told the mullahs that their prayers are not acceptable to God.

    I have come here on behalf of a Resistance movement which has offered its entire existence to ensure the victory of the Iran uprising, and for Iran’s freedom, pride, and magnificence.

    To the arisen people of Iran,
    I have come here to declare what you want: The overthrow of this regime is inevitable. Victory is certain and Iran will be free.

    And we salute the Mojahedin in Ashraf 3, their home. Congratulations for constructing it with your own hands.

    And onwards toward 1,000 Ashrafs (resistance units) in our occupied homeland.

    The leverage for the overthrow

    Since the January uprising, 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. Through their uprisings and by relying on resistance units, the Iranian people have the leverage they need to topple this regime.

    How and where can we see these realities?

    First, owing to the presence of the Resistance movement, the so-called solution within the religious fascism has become null and void.

    The rebellious population and youth have ended the era of posturing for both factions of the regime. These are the very fearless youth who have chosen the path to fight on and to go on maximum offense no matter what the cost.

    Regime-Overthrow-Is-Certain-Iran-Will-Be-Free-3

    The continuation of the uprising and the protest movement despite maximum suppression

    The second sign that the phase of the regime’s overthrow has arrived is that for the past six months the Iranian people have waged an uprising and a protest movement despite maximum suppression, despite the so-called suicides by the detainees in the mullahs’ prisons and despite daily arrests and executions designed to intimidate the public.

    The workers at Haft-Tapeh sugar cane factory resumed their uprising. Then, the workers at Ahvaz steel factory, and farmers in Isfahan rose up. Friday prayer worshipers in Isfahan turned their backs on Khamenei’s Friday prayer leader and roared “back to the enemy and facing the nation.”

    Isfahan Province was still simmering when our Arab compatriots in Khuzestan, especially in Ahvaz, rose up. Then came Kurdistan as the lengthy strike in Baneh aroused everyone’s admiration. Then, in the roadmap to overthrow, a new role model emerged: Kazerun, the city of uprising, fire and blood, with daring women, who with their brothers, rocks in hand, overran the heavily-armed enemy forces, imitating the resistance we saw at Camp Ashraf.

    It was there when the uprising accelerated. The strike by toiling truck drivers and owners in 285 cities and in 31 provinces shook the regime to its foundation for 12 days.

    Teachers, the retirees, the swindled, and workers of hundreds of production centers rose up day after day. And last week, the Tehran bazaar rose up and ignited the uprising in Tehran and other cities.

    Iran rose up again, with all its children, with all its nationalities and ethnicities.

    Truly, where is the destination? A free Iran, by eradicating dictatorship and plunder, and by bringing down Khamenei from his seat.

    An explosive and irreversible situation

    The third sign of the inevitable overthrow of the ruling religious fascism is that social tensions and economic crises, especially high prices, unemployment, poverty, and inequality have reached an irreversible point. Everyone senses the explosive state of society. And the mullahs can offer neither a solution nor are willing or able to resolve the problems.

    The velayat-e faqih lacks any legitimacy. Khamenei’s standing has plummeted dramatically. The regime has run out of cash. The Revolutionary Guards and the unpopular Bassij forces have been hit with defections. The moderation masquerade to preserve the regime has been unmasked. And the regime in its entirety is drowning in the abyss of internal feuding.
    And now, it is the regime’s advocates who are admitting the existence of two warring governments at the top of the ruling establishment. One of them openly said, “We are getting close to purge one of the two governments, either the hidden government will take full control of governance, or will be forced to relinquish parts of its authority.”

    The collapse of appeasement policy

    The fourth sign of the phase of the regime’s overthrow is that internationally, the mullahs have lost the most important backer of the policy of appeasement, namely the United States. The international shield safeguarding the regime has fallen by the way side. The mullahs have practically lost their JCPOA. The avalanche of successive sanctions is hitting them hard, undercutting their ability to engage in warmongering and adventurism in the region. An arms and oil embargo, demanded by the Iranian Resistance since four decades ago, is in the process of being implemented. And the era of labelling, bombing and suppressing the opposition at the behest of the regime has come to an end.

    The blood of martyrs and suffering of those detained fuel the fire of the uprisings

    The fifth and most important signal of the phase of the mullahs’ overthrow is that the very development which the mullahs feared the most has happened: the linkage between the fury of the deprived and oppressed and the organized Resistance movement. All regime leaders have repeatedly acknowledged this fact. And in this way, they are admitting that the regime’s end is coming.

    Indeed, the regime’s overthrow is coming.

    In 2013, following the massacre of 52 Mojahedin members at Camp Ashraf, when several others were taken hostage, Massoud Rajavi announced the road-map for creating 1,000 Ashrafs (resistance units) inside Iran so that the organization which leads the uprising could be linked with the arisen people of Iran. Accordingly, units and councils for the national resistance became the tip of the spear of the strategy for uprising and overthrow in Iran’s risen and rebellious cities. This is how the blood of the martyrs and the suffering of those detained since June 20, 1981 until today, are fueling the uprisings. As Massoud Rajavi said, “If Iran stands, the world will stand with us and by our side.”

    A passionate generation thirsty for freedom has risen. Those taking part in the uprising joined by resistance units have opened a new path. Rise up and walk along this path. Join hands with them and respond to their call for a free Iran. And say you are ready.

    You saw that the people of Varzaneh took over the city’s entry points. Kazerunis took over the streets, and truck drivers and owners took over the highways. And you saw how the young people in Tehran, in Lalehzar, Ferdowsi, Shoush, Mellat and Ekbatan exhibited enormous courage in confronting the ruthless security agents and built entrenchments in the streets.

    This is the Iranian nation’s fight to take over the entire country and take back Iran from the occupiers, the mullahs.

    The overthrow of this regime requires resistance units and a liberation army

    The campaign to create phony alternatives has become prevalent these days. And this too is another sign of the phase of the regime’s overthrow. But the crux of the matter is how they are going to actually bring down this regime. This is especially the case because the blood of the martyrs has permanently blocked the path to reform within the clerical regime and the return of the monarchy.

    Now, if one can topple this regime without an organization and leadership, without passing through the test of time and sacrifice, without paying any price, and without any sacrifice, we say, please, go ahead and don’t delay.

    If one can restore the people’s sovereignty without a history of fighting against two regimes, without drawing the lines with dictatorship and dependency, without a nationwide resistance and the galaxy of its martyrs, without challenging the principle of the velayat-e faqih and fake moderates, we say go ahead and don’t delay.

    If one can topple the mullahs without challenging Khomeini over the unpatriotic Iran-Iraq war, ending the inferno of that war, and discrediting the motto of “liberating Qods via Karbala”; without compelling Khomeini to accept the ceasefire by launching 100 military operations by the National Liberation Army of Iran, which captured the city of Mehran and marched to the gates of Kermanshah; and without exposing the regime’s nuclear weapons, missile, chemical and microbiological programs and facilities, yes, go ahead and don’t delay.

    If without exposing the regime’s human rights abuses and crimes in 64 UN resolutions, without the campaign for justice for the massacre of political prisoners in 1988, without the campaign by the supporters of the resistance worldwide and insisting on the rights of the Iranian nation for four decades, without the specific platform and programs of the NCRI and the Provisional Government for the transition of sovereignty to the Iranian people, and finally without a tested leader, who has guided this ferocious struggle for five decades, one can leap frog this fifty-year path in one night and create real change, while dreaming about foreign support, we say go ahead, the ball is in your court.

    But let me say, such a fantasy is only possible with an Iraq-like occupation, meaning through a foreign intervention. Such a scenario already has a foregone conclusion.

    In these 40 years, all the claimants who were unwilling to pay the price tested their chances. But the realities and experience have shown that this dark and evil regime will neither be reformed, nor turn “green” or “velvet.”

    The overthrow of this regime inevitably requires the willingness to pay the price, requires honesty and sacrifice; requires an organization and a strong political alternative, and requires resistance units and a liberation army.

    Nevertheless, as Massoud Rajavi said when appraising the January uprising, “We are not rivals to anyone seeking to assume power. And most certainly, no one can rival the MEK when it comes to honesty, sacrifice and paying the price.”

    National Solidarity Front to overthrow the religious dictatorship

    16 years ago, the Iranian Resistance adopted the plan on the National Solidarity Front for the Overthrow of the Ruling Religious Dictatorship and declared that it was prepared to cooperate will all forces who want a republican form of government, who are committed to the complete rejection of the velayat-e faqih regime and who struggle for a democratic, independent Iran, based on separation of religion and state.

    In the past four decades, the NCRI, beyond typical political rhetoric, has paid a heavy price in blood and treasure for each and every one of its declarations, ratifications and commitments.

    We call for the establishment of a society, based on freedom, democracy, and equality, which has clear demarcations with despotism and dependence as well as gender, ethnic and class discrimination. We have defended and will defend gender equality, the right to freely choose one attire, separation of religion and state, autonomy of nationalities, equal political and social rights for all citizens of Iran, abolition of death penalty, freedom of expression, parties, the media, assembly, unions, associations, councils and syndicates.

    The NCRI’s 12-point plan for the autonomy of the Iranian Kurdistan, adopted and announced 35 years ago, continues to be one of the most comprehensive global examples addressing the rights of nationalities. A free and non-nuclear Iran will promote peaceful coexistence with its neighbors, and welcomes regional and international cooperation.

    This is the visage of the democratic alternative which rejects the mullahs’ rule or any form of dictatorship.

    In this path, the first step is to transfer sovereignty to the people of Iran. By relying on the Iranian people and a popular base one can avert chaos and insecurity and safeguard the integrity of Iran and Iranians, rendering it a proud nation.

    According to the NCRI’s program, following the regime’s overthrow, a provisional six-month government will be formed, whose primary task is to form a constituent assembly through free elections with the general, direct, equal and secret ballot. This constituent assembly must draft the constitution of the new republic within two years and put it to vote. It must also set up the principal institutions of the new republic based on the people’s vote.

    The violated sovereignty of the Iranian people must be revived

    We believe it is possible to eradicate high prices, poverty, unemployment, shanty dwelling, water shortage and environmental calamities. But, before anything else, the trampled political rights, specifically the right to sovereignty of the Iranian people, must be restored and revived. This is the aim of our Resistance and the raison d’etre for the NCRI.

    But the Iranian regime has benefitted the most by denying the wherewithal enjoyed by this Resistance and this alternative and by using western appeasers to suppress this movement.

    Therefore, as far as Iran in concerned, without recognizing the Resistance and the right to resist, the damages the policy of appeasement has inflicted on the Iranian people cannot be rectified.

    As we have always stated, and I repeat, the task of overthrowing the regime, bringing about democratic change and establishing a free Iran rests on our shoulders and those of the Iranian people. At the same time, we welcome any retreat by the mullahs. Because one thousand chalices of poison serve the interests of 1,000 Ashrafs, or resistance units.

    Today, the brave children of Iran are completely immersed with the task of uprisings. I hail the courageous women of Iran, who are leading the way everywhere. I also hail the young people and members of resistance units, who even in captivity underscore their PMOI identity, which terrifies the regime.

    Giving it all to advance the uprising

    I call on you to give practical support to the uprisings. All Iranians, wherever they are, can help and advance the uprising. Also, you, the Iranian youth, who are present here, can do a lot. This is our commitment and our pledge to the Iranian nation to put everything in the service of the uprisings, give it all and sacrifice at all fronts to advance the uprising.

    Literally, every moment and every second with the uprising, and every one for the uprising.

    I hail all the martyrs and the defiant prisoners from June 20, 1981, until today. I hail those eternal flames of love, Sediqeh Mojaveri and Neda Hassani, on the 15th anniversary of their martyrdom. May their memories and names last forever!

    I am well aware that your unsparing emotions is directed at the galaxy of the martyrs of the Resistance and the Iranian people’s liberation army as well as those in the uprisings, the resistance units and the steadfast prisoners and especially those massacred in 1988 in the regime’s prisons 30 years ago.

    From the depth of the dark night
    A Rose blossoms
    Winter will no doubt pass
    The harbinger of spring with thousands of roses will certainly follow

    Hail to freedom
    Hail to the people of Iran
    Hail to all of you.
