Maryam Rajavi: The protests of Iranian workers, the struggles of the nation as a whole, and the steadfastness of the organized resistance movement herald a new era
NCRI - Mrs. Maryam Rajavi congratulated Iran’s toiling workers on the International Labor Day and noted that the growing trend of protests and strikes bespeaks of their determination to overthrow the Velayat-e Faqih regime and put an end to its oppression, plunder and abuse.
Mrs. Rajavi pointed out that at least 1,300 worker strikes, sit-ins and demonstrations over the past year, specifically dozens of protests in recent weeks attest that Iranian workers defy the Velayat-e Faqih regime and will not give in to its injustice.
NCRI - "If the Iranian regime were to abandon misogyny the ruling theocracy would collapse. Thus, neither Khatami nor Rouhani, who launched a charm offensive of reform and moderation, do not get close to easing the oppression and subjugation of women," Mrs Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance said in a speech at the international conference held in Paris on the occasion of the International Women’s Day.
A great number of prominent political, social and art figures, as well as human rights and women’s rights activists from five continents and delegations representing dozens of Iranian women’s associations and organizations throughout Europe and the United States attended the conference.
Conference praised the role of Maryam Rajavi in revealing the anti-Islamic nature of the regime ruling Iran and the misogyny and fundamentalism under the name of Islam

Greetings to you all
I am very happy to be here in your gathering today.
I have come here to warn the international community to not close their eyes to the continued violations of human rights, daily executions, and repeated crimes of the mullahs’ dictatorship in Iran against members of the PMOI, and to its fanning of the flames of sectarian war in the region, under the guise of nuclear talks with this regime.
