Acknowledging Iran’s regime has no future

 

Iran is facing multiple crisis internally
Iran is facing multiple crisis internally

Remarks heard from Iranian regime officials in regards to the dilemmas facing the mullahs’ apparatus has reached a critical point. If these comments were expressed just a year ago, they would be considered a crime, and literally opposing the state and Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei himself.

These remarks, however, have become very common these days.

Various figures are questioning the very essence of the mullahs’ regime and their so-called constitution. Tajzadeh, the interior minister’s political deputy during the tenure of former president Mohammad Khatami, is placing his cross hairs on the position of the Supreme Leader itself.

“The first and biggest mistake of all… was including the supreme leadership position in the constitution… the revolution steered away from being a republic to more of a despotism. In the constitution, we have provided vast authority to the supreme leader, without holding the individual accountable… This is enough to make the entire political system completely ineffective,” he said.

These remarks actually signal the regime’s deep concerns regarding the boiling domestic unrest and the intensifying international isolation. The fact that such individuals, who were screened vigorously before being appointed as senior regime officials, are resorting to such remarks is quite telling about the weak status quo of senior officials and the entire regime apparatus.

“Resolving the crisis of our entity lacking a future and resolving fears about the future cannot be realized through promises, speeches and/or reports. Today, relieving remarks made by political figures and directors are no longer effective,” Iranian regime figure Jabbar Rahmani said, according to the state-run IRNA news agency on October 1st.

Faeze Hashemi, the daughter of former Iranian president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani (now dead), also made interesting comments to EuroNews.

“We cannot run the country with policies dating back to the first years after the 1979 revolution… the status quo has become so critical that Mr. Mesbah Yazdi (a senior mullah close to Khamenei) says we have less than five friends across the globe,” she said.

Ali Younesi, a former intelligence minister, has recently questioned the epicenter of all the policies stated in the regime’s constitution.

“I suggest to those in the Intelligence Ministry to not stand against the people. Inside the country, be very careful to avoid taking measures against the people,” he warned.

All these figures agree on the one subject of a major restructuring necessary in the regime’s ruling apparatus.

“Methods and policies must change, and reforms are needed in the state’s structure,” according to former Iranian regime president Mohammad Khatami.

Faeze Rafsanjani also acknowledged, “We must accept the fact that we made mistakes. If the policies were correct in the past, they’re not so now. We have no other choice.”

“The harsh truth is that the society can start crumbling. This can be realized very quickly,” said Rahmani.

During the past year, and specifically after the Dec/Jan uprising to this day, a variety of figures inside the Iranian regime have been voicing such concerns. Ever since the people began rebuking the mullahs’ regime in its entirety, and especially targeting Khamenei himself, these figures have started to realize that their days are numbered.

The mullahs’ regime in Iran is fundamentally against the people and cannot be reformed. In their street protests during the Dec/Jan uprising, the Iranian people were heard specifically chanting:

“Reformists, principalists, GAME OVER!” or  “Reformists, Hardliner, Game is Over Now”

This medieval and repressive regime will be overthrown by the protesting Iranian people and Resistance Units linked to the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

Iran: Figures acknowledging the regime’s utter failure

Iran_s protests continue to boil

Acknowledging the complete failure of the mullahs’ ideology in Iran is nothing new. The fact that the Iranian regime’s state media are discussing this subject and the current crises due to the regime’s corrupt apparatus is what is quite new indeed.

New remarks are heard questioning even Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei himself, and directly or indirectly consider him the main individual responsible for the current crises and status quo, signals a growing sign of unrest and dissent inside the country.

Abolfazl Ghadiani and Alireza Rajaie, two figures known for their close relations with the Iranian regime apparatus, issued a statement published in a variety of media outlets discussing this subject.

“The Islamic republic is now engulfed in a flood of crises and it is the target of numerous daily attacks from different sources. Pretending to be calm and having self-confidence will not resolve any of the countless dilemmas, including apprehensions, detentions, and executions,” the statement reads.

“The newly found power oligarchy seen after the 1979 revolution established entity after entity to maybe be able to overcome the increasing crises. The [regime] has filed time and again. It was inside this oligarch that various circles of power and wealth came to life due to their access to government money. These entities consider the government and the country as their own economic playground, and are specifically in contrast with democratic demands, religious and ethnic minorities, and freedom of the press.”

Questioning the complete apparatus of the religious fascism ruling Iran currently is not a subject limited to these two individuals.

In response to this expanding wave of challenging the mullahs’ religious dictatorship, figures close to Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei are heard raising their voices.

“Necessary measures must be taken in the face of seditions. Why must [Khamenei’s] words be heard and no action be taken?” said Mullahs Sedighi, the temporary Friday prayer imam in Tehran.

It is quite interesting that the figures now challenging Khamenei’s methods were once among the utmost loyalists to the mullahs’ rule.

The truth is that protests are spreading in Iran and the organized resistance movement is gaining force, making a growing number of figures inside the Iranian regime extremely concerned about their own future.

Furthermore, Khamenei lacks the power, influence, and capability to take actions against such voices. This weakness is realized by all of Iran’s society and a growing number of people no longer fear the crackdown imposed by the regime’s security apparatus.

This is allowing the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) to increase the number of resistance units across the country.

Such entities are escalating their measures against the regime and reigniting hope and courage in the hearts of a restive Iranian population that will no longer tolerate the religious dictatorship’s crackdown.

Two more Iranian regime spies arrested in the United States

August 21, 2018 – On Monday, the U.S. Department of Justice declared that two Iranian men were arrested on charges of spying for the Iranian regime. The suspects, Ahmadreza Mohammadi-Doostdar, 38, and Majid Ghorbani, 59, were allegedly involved in conducting surveillance on organizations and individuals that the Iranian regime considers as enemies, most prominent among them the PMOI/MEK.

According to a DOJ press release, in September 2017, Ghorbani, a resident of California, attended an MEK rally in New York and photographed participants, who had gathered to protest against the Iranian regime.

Ghorbani later contacted Doostdar and delivered 28 photographs of dissidents to him, for which he received $2,000 in cash. Ghorbani’s photos also contained hand-written annotations identifying the individuals who appeared in them.

Ghorbani later traveled to Iran for an “in-person briefing” with Iranian officials, according to the DOJ investigations.

Ghorbani later attended the 2018 Iran Freedom Convention for Human Rights in Washington, D.C., also organized by the supporters of the MEK and NCRI, where he photographed speakers and attendees, which included Iranian dissidents from communities across the United States. Doostdar called Ghorbani 10 days later to discuss how to get the information gathered at the event back to Iran, according to the indictment.

Ghorbani will appear for a detention hearing in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on August 21.

The revelation comes against the backdrop of an uptick in the Iranian regime’s terrorist and espionage activities abroad. In July, Belgian authorities arrested two Iranians who planned to bomb the Free Iran Gathering in Paris, where tens of thousands of Iranians had gathered to support nationwide protests in Iran. The terrorist plot involved an Iranian diplomat, Assadollah Assadi, who was also arrested. Assadi served as the chief of intelligence operations in the Iranian regime’s embassy in Vienna, Austria.

In March, Albanian authorities foiled a terror plot aimed at PMOI/MEK members. Thousands of MEK members were relocated from Iraq to Albania in 2016. Since then, the Iranian regime has escalated its espionage activities in the country through its embassy.

The Iranian regime blames the PMOI/MEK for coordinating and guiding the nationwide protests that have been ongoing in the cities of Iran since December. Iran’s have vowed to take revenge against the members of the PMOI/MEK.

The NCRI and MEK have called on all European countries to shut down the Iranian regime’s diplomatic missions in their countries to stop terrorist activities.

The NCRI also issued Two statements on August 16 regarding the Iranian regime’s spying activities against the PMOI/MEK.

The role of the Internet and social media in Iran protests.

the-threat-of-social-media-to-the-iranian

By Masoud Dalvand

In this article, I will write about two important issues related to the developments in Iran. 

First: The role of the Internet and social media in Iran protests. 

Second: The suppression of the mullahs’ regime and the impact of US sanctions on the Iranian regime.

Are these two issues related to each other? Of course they are. Social media is the only opportunity that the Iranian people, especially the protesting youth and women, and all the political and social activists, can make their voices heard. And the start of US initial sanctions against the Iranian regime and its effects on its decaying economy is a very important development. Considering the censorship and suppression of Iran, the social media can be used to measure the effects of the sanctions in Iran. So I’ve looked at these two issues in the following article.

The Internet and especially social media play a very important role in social activities in Iran. You know that Iran is a country in which a religious dictatorship is ruling on, so there is no open public media. Radio and television networks and the press are entirely under the control of the government and, in particular, the supreme leader of the Khamenei regime. Public and private websites are under intense censorship and control. In Iran, a ministry called the Ershad, whose work is a censorship of all cultural, artistic and press affairs, in addition to the Iranian regime’s police, has a special Internet police that It’s work is to monitor and filter and suppress all individuals and media on the Internet. They have very simple and humanitarian activities, such as defending the rights of women or children, and other social problems. In 2012 about six years ago, a blogger in Tehran, Sattar Beheshti, was arrested and subjected to torture only for publishing several articles on social problems in Iran and the poverty of people and corruption in government institutions.

Many social and environmental activists in Iran have now been arrested for informing people about the devastating effects of mismanagement on the nature of Iran, the drying up of lakes and rivers, or the reflection of social dilemmas, such as the suppression of women and child labor, and the denial of their rights. They are Prisoners and tortured! The latest example is a human rights lawyer named Nasrin Sotoudeh who was accused of espionage! and five years in jail, and many other examples that I don’t have the time to name all of them.

At last as the most important examples, many young people, including a 26 years old young, named Reza Otadi, in the city of Karaj, were killed by regime repression agents during protests in August, but the regime’s official media tried to reverse this crime by the name of protesters! If not social media, the reality of this regime’s crime was not easily disclosed.

In the protests last January, when thousands of protesters were arrested, several of them were killed, but the regime claimed they had committed suicide! Also in here were social media that exposed the facts of these murders and crimes of the mullahs’ regime.

Therefore, in such a situation that there are no free media in Iran and independent journalists cannot reflect the political and social developments in Iran, the Internet plays a very important role in the Iranian society, especially social media, despite the suppression and filtering of a large role in the developments of Iran. For example, Telegram has a lot of features due to its features and the regime cannot hack it, so that a quarter of the total Telegram users in the world are about 40 million people in Iran.

It was sent to the world through the Telegram, videos and news about the Iran protests in January 2018. In the past eight months, in spite of the Telegram filtering by the Iranian Ministry of Communications, the people, especially the Iranian youth and Iranian women, use this social media to reflect the news of demonstrations and gatherings and strikes in various Iranian cities, and thus in the space Seduction and total tyranny in Iran are the Internet and social media that transmit the constantly changing social movements in Iran all over the country and out of Iran.

The second issue is the suppression of the mullahs’ regime and the impact of US sanctions on the Iranian regime.

The withdrawal of the United States from Iran deal and the implementation of  the first phase of sanctions  against the Iranian regime have an important impact on the developments inside Iran, in the sense that the Iranian regime has spent money gained from Iran deal on terrorism and the expansion of the regional intervention of the Iran Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) in Syria, Yemen Iraq, Lebanon and other Middle Eastern countries, or use these funds inside Iran to expand the ballistic missile program and threaten the Iran neighbors or US troops and free shipping in the Persian Gulf.

An important part of the proceeds from the sale of Iranian oil and gas was spent on the construction of nuclear weapons as a guarantee of the survival of this government. Therefore, the withdrawal of the United States from Iran deal and economic sanctions against Iran actually limits the resources of the nuclear and missile activities and terrorist activities of the Iranian regime because in Iran, the government does not play any role in provide the basic needs of the people or the well-being and progress of the Iranian society.

The wealth of Iran is being stolen by the regime’s authorities, such as Khamenei Vali-e Faqih and other officials also parliamentarians, as well as the corrupt IRGC, or spending on nuclear, missile and terrorist destructive activities.

Therefore, this American action is not only a pressure on the people of Iran, but on the contrary, the pressure on this government is corrupt, plunderer and terrorist. So it is the weakening of this regime, and helping to revive and uprising the Iranian people against tyranny and religious dictatorship.

With the censorship and filtering of social media such as Telegram, Twitter, Facebook, etc., the Iranian regime tries to prevent the role of the Internet and social media in Iran’s developments. Also by arresting, torture and killing civil and political activists, creates a climate of intimidation in society, but today’s developments in Iran show that the regime has not succeeded.

If the regime has not succeeded in preventing of the Iranian people’s will for freedom until now, so they cannot prevent the spread of protests and their organized resistance and uprising by the rebellious hubs of the PMOI/MEK. Future developments will show this fact.

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.”

New Information on the Iranian “diplomat”– operation’s mastermind.

By Masoud Dalvand

At a press conference on Wednesday, August 8th, prominent Belgian and European lawyers announced new points regarding the Iranian regime’s foiled terror plot in Europe, including information on dignitaries from Europe and the Middle East who have asked to enter the case as private plaintiffs and to file their complaint against the Iranian regime.

At the conference, the representative of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) provided new information on Assadollah Assadi, the “third counselor” of the Iranian embassy in Vienna and the head of the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence station there, who was the mastermind and commander of the plot and is currently detained in Germany. The new information obtained through the network of the People’s Mojahedin rganization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) from inside of the regime, revealed the decision-making structure and the hierarchy for the implementation of this plot.

Speakers at the conference were:

William Bourdon: Renowned human rights lawyer (France) in brief referred to the case on the table and confirmed the arrest of the Assadollah Assadi the terrorist diplomat.

Mr. Rik Vanreusel at the press conference in Brussels represented many European personalities & elected officials who’ve entered the case as private plaintiffs in this case of foiled attack against the rally for a free Iran.

Serge de Patoul: The opposition of Iran is the primary victim of the terrorism and I am here to emphasis on this matter.

Former Prime Minister of Algeria,Sid Ahmed Ghozali: I’m here because I was at Free Iran 2018 rally with hundreds of personalities who were the potential victims of this foiled attack. I am among the private plaintiffs filling a complaint against the Iranian regime.

Mohammad Mohaddessin
Mohammad Mohaddessin, Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of NCRI

Mohammad Mohaddessin: Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of NCRI. 

Mohaddessin said as you know, Assadollah Assadi, a third consular at the Iranian regime’s embassy in Vienna was arrested on July 1 in the Germany based on a European arrest warrant.

Mohaddessin added: The Iranian Resistance’s information shows that Assadi was in charge of the MOIS station since June 2014, for several years, this outpost has coordinated the activities of all MOIS stations in Europe.
Mohaddesin further on went to say that after the US invasion of Iraq, Assadi was posted in Iraq as third secretary at the Iranian regime’s embassy in Baghdad in the beginning of 2004. Assadi’s mission was to collect intelligence about the coalition forces in Iraq, their headquarters and main centers, to identify the opponents of the Iranian regime among Iraqi personalities.

Mohaddessin said: According to investigation conducted by our sources in Iran, Assadi played a key role in terrorist plots, bombings and kidnapping against the MEK, coalition forces, and Iraqis between 2004 and 2008.

This is one of the most important MOIS apparatuses in the Europe operating under the supervision of Assadi. The new head of the German’s intelligence apparatus is Hossein Mahdian-fard.

Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of NCRI reiterated details regarding the command structure of the operation, an explanation on the structure and modus operandi of the MOIS is necessary. Assadi monitored & worked against the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), whose members were based in Camp Ashraf at the time. Since March 2018, Assadi was working with the terror team and had several meetings with them to prepare them for this operation. He reported his work to Amiri-Moghadam. He is considered one of the most senior security officials of the regime and was involved in negotiations with the US forces in Iraq in 2007 on behalf of the Supreme National Security Council. Assadi led the attempted terrorist operation against the Paris gathering under the command of Amiri Moghdam.

The decision was made in January 2018 at the Supreme National Security Council Then Khamenei approved the operation MOIS Minister was directed to carry out the operation and Amiri Moghadam was the person directly responsible for the operation.

The head of the Intelligence Station of the regime’s embassy in Albania is Mostafa Roudaki, an officer of the Foreign Intelligence of the MOIS. Mohammadinia and Roudaki are both under Amiri Moghadam’s command. The terrorist plot in Albania was also commanded by Amiri Moghadam. The regime’s current ambassador to Albania, Gholam Hossein Mohammadinia, was previously the head of the International General Administration of the MOIS Foreign Directorate.

The Prosecutors’ statement reiterated that Assadi is a member of the Iranian regime’s Intelligence Ministry (MOIS) and personally handed over a bomb to two terrorists in Luxembourg, Mohaddessin said.

Intelligence apparatus in Germany. This is one of the most important MOIS apparatuses in the Europe operating under the supervision of Assadi. The new head of the German’s intelligence apparatus is Hossein Mahdian-fard.

Intelligence apparatus in France. Ahmad Zarif previously headed this apparatus. Over the past few months, he was supposed to be replaced and return to Iran. Another MOIS officer in France is Rasoul Ahadi Majdabadi.

On July 11, 2018 The Office of the Federal Prosecutor of Germany announced that it had launched an investigation into Assadi for activities as a foreign agent – or spy – and conspiring to carry out murder.

Background of this topic:
On June 30, Belgian authorities arrested a Belgian-Iranian couple with 500-grams of high-
explosive TATP and a detonator near Brussels. The couple, who had pretended to be
supporters of People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the main Iranian opposition group, were heading toward the "Free Iran" gathering in the outskirts of Paris.
The gathering was held in support of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), with the participation of tens of thousands of private citizens and hundreds of political dignitaries from the United States, Europe, and the Middle East, in  Villepinte Paris on June 30, 2018.

On July 1, German authorities arrested Assadollah Assadi, on route to Austria where he
enjoyed diplomatic immunity. The German Federal Prosecutor stated on July 11 that Assadi had given the order for the operation to the couple and personally handed over the bomb to them in Luxembourg.

Conclusion:

As you can see, the religious dictatorship in Iran is scared of the Iranian organized and powerful resistance, so has abandoned all political protocols, and with the entry of its so-called diplomats in Europe, it seeks to strike against Iranian resistance(NCRI/MEK) through terrorist operations. Of course, this shows to the whole world the democratic alternative address of this regime, but these scandalous efforts can not save the mullahs from a definite fall.

I put the full video of the conference at the beginning of the article and I would advise you to see it  which contains very valuable information.

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.
