    Demonstration by 3000 Iranians in London 

    On Saturday, July 27, 2019, some 3000 Iranians demonstrated on the streets of central London and demanded comprehensive sanctions against the mullahs’ regime and the terrorist listing of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) and the Office of the Supreme Leader. They supported the Iranian Resistance and its president-elect, Maryam Rajavi, and her 10-point plan for the future of Iran.

    They emphasized that while the clerical regime was at risk of being overthrown by the people and the Resistance, the Ministry of Intelligence and the terrorist IRGC Quds Force, more than ever, try to demonize the Iranian Resistance through “mullah-friendly reporters” in various countries especially in the UK in publications such as The Guardian, by spreading fake news. But investing on this faltering regime is doomed to fail. Appeasing the mullahs, the most important source of terrorism and warmongering in the region and in the world, on the pretext of preventing war is as harmful and dangerous as the 1938 agreement with Hitler.

    Mrs. Rajavi told the demonstrators: “Your demonstration today in London, marks the peak of a series of Free Iran rallies taken place over the past one-and-a-half months in Brussels, Washington D.C., Berlin, and Stockholm. It is also an extension of the Iranian Resistance’s 5-day annual gatherings, two weeks ago, at Asharf-3.”

    She added peace and freedom peace and freedom can only be earned through fighting the mullahs’ religious dictatorship. This is in diametric opposition to the proponents of appeasement who defend the regime under the guise of peace. The result of the policy of appeasement, the clampdown on the PMOI, and overlooking the violations of human rights in Iran in the nuclear deal can be seen in the regime’s attacks on shipping in the Persian Gulf, jeopardizing regional and international security and its terrorist and espionage operations in Europe and the United States.

    Emphasizing that the mullahs understand no language except the language of force and firmness, Mrs. Rajavi called on Britain and Europe to halt giving concessions to the mullahs, to not help them decrease the sanctions, and to place the IRGC and the MOIS, Khamenei’s office and Hassan Rouhani on the terror list, and instead of shaking hands with the religious fascism, to stand on the side of the people of Iran for regime change… She specifically urged the new UK government to support human rights and to take action to send an international fact-finding mission to Iran to visit the regime’s prisons and the political prisoners particularly, the women.

    “The ruling regime is surrounded by an impatient nation confident that her liberation will not be realized unless the mullahs are overthrown. The clerical regime has no more strength or resources and is struggling in a quagmire which will lead to its overthrow. The era of religious fascism is coming to an end; Iran will be free,” Mrs. Rajavi concluded.

    Prominent politicians such as Matthew Offord MP, chairman of the British Committee for Iran Freedom; Struan Stevenson, coordinator of the Campaign for Iran Change; Senator Catherine Noone, Deputy Leader of the Irish Senate; Jim Higgins, former Member of the European Parliament; Senator Gerry Horkan of Ireland; Roger Godsiff MP; Paulo Casaca, former MEP; Brian Binley, former MP; Roger Lyons, former President of the Trades Union Congress (TUC) in the United Kingdom, members of The Law Society of England and Wales, Dr. Mohammad al-Sheikhli, jurist and lawyer of the People’s Mojahedin in Ashraf; Mrs. Dowlat Nowrouzi, the representative of the National Council of Resistance of Iran in the UK; and the NCRI’s Hossein Abedini spoke at the rally.

    Conference, “1988 Massacre in Iran, Perpetrators must be TRIED” 

    Litigation for the 1988 Massacre Political Prisoners. Trial of Perpetrators of Massacre.

    Iran’s regime executed some 30,000 political prisoners in the 1988 Massacre. We will urge the world community to hold the perpetrators accountable.

    At the Call-for-Justice for #1988Massacre Conference demanding prosecution of its perpetrators and masterminds at an international court – Ashraf 3.

    The massacre of political prisoners was a blood-drenched encounter between the Middle Ages and a generation which created the 1979 revolution, a generation resolved to achieve a society based on freedom & equality, but encountered the monster of religious fascism.

    The 1988 Massacre was the horrifying scene of such historic confrontation, but it was not the end. It was the beginning a new confrontation which still continues and will write the fate of the Iranian nation in freedom.

    The time has come for the international community to end 3 decades of impunity for the leaders of the regime in Iran, holding Khamenei and his accomplice accountable for their crimes against humanity and the genocide committed in the 1988 Massacre at an international tribunal.

    “Women in the Iranian Resistance – Defying the Misogynist Regime, Paying the Price of Freedom” 

    Women’s conference in Ashraf 3 in support of a free Iran – July 14, 2019 – Tirana, Albania

    An international conference was held, with the theme: “Women in the Iranian Resistance – Defying the Misogynist Regime, Paying the Price of Freedom”.

    Women’s rights activists and dignitaries from across the world were attending the conference in Ashraf 3, home to members of the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK) in Albania.

    These prominent figures were voicing support for women of Iran, who have been leading the struggle for freedom in the past decades. The event’s keynote speaker is Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi.

    Attendants were expressing support for Maryam Rajavi’s 10-point plan for a future free Iran.

    The first and keynote speaker of the event was Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

    Maryam Rajavi said: The common answer to all these problems, ranging from poverty and discrimination to lack of free choice, lies in freedom and equality. Not just equality and not just freedom. But both freedom and equality. Discrimination against women in Iran and in any society, at any juncture of history, have meant to subjugate the people, to suppress them, to plunder them and to strip them of their political rights.

    You might have heard claims that if the mullahs were to be overthrown, Iran would experience chaos, disasters and destitution. But aren’t Iranian women living in conditions even worse than war-torn countries? Aren’t they suffering from poverty, unemployment and homelessness?

    You can see 1,000 pioneering women at this place coming from various cities of Iran, from Khomeini’s prisons, or from universities in the U.S.,Europe & Iran. You see 3 generations side by side.They are members of the Central Council of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran.

    Most of the victims of rampant poverty and destitution in today’s Iran are women. Over 62 percent of women above 10 years are housewives. The average economic participation of women in the Middle East is 22 percent, but only 12 percent in the cities of Iran.

    If our movement was not deeply against exploitation and all of its political, social, theoretical, and cultural conducts, women could not hold such positions for a long time.

    To be a woman and not surrender, to be a woman and persevere in struggle, to be a woman and instead of thinking about yourself, think about the liberation of your enchained people, this is something that has driven the mullahs crazy.

    I would like to salute Iran’s political prisoners especially my sisters who have been resisting and defying the regime in Khamenei’s jails across Iran.

    Inspired by the 1,000 women of Ashraf, this is a tradition that Iran’s enlightened women and rebellious girls are following, which is an emancipating struggle.

    I would like to briefly review the status of Iranian women in a few realms:

      Indeed, women in the MEK have captured all arenas in Resistance against mysogynist regime ruling Iran.
      In Iranian Resistance, we are not talking about a few women reaching high profile levels here and there but in their thousands taking key positions.
      The entire leadership of this liberation movement comprises of women.
      I salute them!

    In the media : Talking about Maryam Rajavi; Our Mission: ‘Freedom, Democracy and Human Rights for Iran’ 

    By Mrs. Maryam Rajavi

    Yes, we do not want anything more than freedom and human rights, which will of course also open the way for us toward development and justice. This will ensure peace and security in Iran and the Middle East; an Iranfree of religious fascism, a non-nuclear Iran and an Iran without terrorism and belligerence.
    The religious dictatorship is a paper tiger when it comes to facing off with the Iranian Resistance. And its fate is no different from the fate of the Shah’s dictatorship. This is the verdict of history and the yearning of the people of Iran.

    Our Pledge: ‘To resist and fight until victory’

    To fend off the people’s fury for 40 years, the murderous mullahs have pointed their fingers at the U.S. as the enemy. But we were not deceived.
    Now, the people of Iran cry out in every street and alley that “our enemy is right here; the mullahs lie when they say America is the enemy.”

    The absurd comments made by the mullahs and their foreign minister about the so-called “B Team” in the United States was a bid to hide their own “Bomb team”: From developing a nuclear bomb to bombing plots in Albania and France, to bombings and planting of mines on oil tankers in the Persian Gulf, to the explosions, drones and missile attacks on Saudi Arabia and targeting of the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, the evidence is clear.

    When the mullahs are not held accountable and do not pay a price for their actions, they become more emboldened and intensify their belligerence. Launching Katyusha missiles in Mosul and Basra and the missile attack against a U.S. drone are very telling examples of this fact.
    For the past 40 years, the regime has persistently waged wars against the people of Iran and the world. Still, regime apologists and those who benefit from its continued rule feign concern for war. They use this as a pretext to dissuade the world from adopting any form of decisiveness, and instead urge appeasement of the ruling murderers in Iran.

    The main victims, however, are the people of Iran. The experience of the past 40 years has demonstrated that the mullahs’ theocratic regime is incapable of any reform or change of behavior. Indeed, as a (Persian) saying goes, “a viper will never give birth to a dove.”
    Khamenei says that change in the regime’s behavior is tantamount to regime change.
    Consider the American Declaration of Independence. The question before George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and their comrades and supporters was the same. And, similarly, our answer is the same: To resist and fight until victory.

    Three months ago, for the first time in the past 70 years, the President of the United States in his Nowruz (Persian New Year) message to the people of Iran attested to the fact that: “The Iranian people desire to reclaim their country’s proud history, expressive culture, and rightful place on the world stage. They deserve a government that is accountable to them and that treats them with dignity and respect.”
    He emphasized: “We pledge never to turn a deaf ear to the calls of the Iranian people for freedom, and we will never forget their ongoing struggle for human rights.”

    Yes, we do not want anything more than freedom and human rights, which will of course also open the way for us toward development and justice. This will ensure peace and security in Iran and the Middle East; an Iran free of religious fascism, a non-nuclear Iran and an Iran without terrorism and belligerence.
    The religious dictatorship is a paper tiger when it comes to facing off with the Iranian Resistance. And its fate is no different from the fate of the Shah’s dictatorship. This is the verdict of history and the yearning of the people of Iran.

    Live Broadcast- Free Iran Rally in Berlin. #IStandWithMaryamRajavi For a #FreeIran 

    We started our journey in Europe’s capital, on June 15th in Brussels, then we traveled together, joined by thousands of Iranians in the #March4RegimeChangeByIranians. And yes, our voice was heard, with thousands of media coverage and reports and through a vast social media campaign million around the world were informed of the people’s cry for freedom. In his interview with ‘Face the Nation’, Vice President Mike Pence made a reference to the rally held across from the White House and said it is time for us to listen to the voice of the Iranian people.

    From the US capital we traveled to the heart of the Iranian resistance in Albania, hearing from dignitaries from across Europe and Australia on the importance of standing with the Iranian resistance for a #FreeIran. And now we will come together once more in the heart of Europe, Berlin, at the historic Brandenburger Tor, where the world witnessed there’s no army stronger than an ideal which’s time has come. A city which was able to break the chains, and bring down the wall, serving as a barrier between its people.

    And Saturday July 6, Iranians will come together in one voice: calling for a #FreeIran and showing their resolve in bringing down the walls of the ruling theocracy. While calling for change, Iranians will once more emphasize on the necessity of blacklisting Rouhani as the corrupt and vicious core of the regime.

    Now, as Iranians gather from across Germany let us join them as they emphasize

    Regime Change in Iran is Inevitable

    It is time to stand by the Iranian resistance & people’s uprisings for a #FreeIran

    The people of Iran deserve to live in peace with the world and in a democracy where their rights are respected.

    A new hashtag will be announced at 16:30 as we call for the blacklisting of Rouhani, so join the campaign as we echo the voice of the Iranian people
