They were living in exile in Camp Ashraf and later Camp Liberty in Iraq. After the withdrawal of the US military, they were left at the mercy of the vicious Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and his masters in Tehran. Finally, the tiny country of Albania, agreed to provide them with a safe haven in Tirana.
Iranian opposition’s march on the occasion of the anniversary of the antimonarchy revolution in 1979
Alejo Vidal-Quadras, former Vice President of the European Parliament and current President of the international committee In Search of Justice (ISJ), tells the Paris rally for a free Iran: “I call on the EU to take a hard line with this theocratic and terrorist regime which has no future.”
On February 8, thousands of Iranians rallied and marched in Paris to mark the 40th anniversary of the Iranian people's uprising against the Shah's dictatorship.
The march started in Paris’s Denfert Rochereau Square and ended at Les Invalides in front of the French National Assembly. The protesters condemned the continuing human rights violations in Iran, increasing terrorist plots of the regime, and the regime’s continuing missile and nuclear programs. They supported the social movements and protests by the Iranian people against the mullahs’ dictatorship.
