Call for an end to appeasement, removal of terror tag on Mojahedin

Today, supporters of the Iranian Resistance held gatherings, seminars, rallies and conferences in 40 cities across the world to commemorate the sixth anniversary of the July 9 uprising. In expressing their solidarity with Iranian students, they called for an end to the policy of appeasement toward the clerical regime.
Iranians underscored that the simultaneity of the criminal bombings in London and a terrorist becoming the president in Iran gives dual importance to the adoption of a decisive policy toward the clerical regime, the heartland of fundamentalism and the terrorism emanating from it.
A number of political, parliamentary, academic and human rights personalities addressed these events and expressed their support for the Iranian people’s endeavors for freedom and democracy. While condemning the mullahs’ sham election that led to the election of a Revolutionary Guardsman, a murderer and terrorist, the speakers urged Western countries, particularly the European Union, to end the disastrous policy of appeasement and urged the removal of the terror label from the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), the principal  Iranian opposition force.
These rallies, gatherings and events were held or in the process of being held in Hamburg, Bremen, Göttingen, Frankfurt, Ulm, Nürnberg, Berlin, Leipzig and Cologne in Germany, Brussels, The Hague, Stockholm and Goteborg in Sweden, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Oslo, Trondheim, Bergen, and Arendal in Norway, Rome, Sydney, Vienna, Berne, Limasol, in Cyprus, Lille, Luxembourg, Denver, Los Angeles, Berkeley, Atlanta, Washington, DC, San Diego in the United States, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Vancouver in Canada.
Seminars and conferences will also be held in the coming days in Dallas, Houston and Nashville in the United States, Rome and Sydney.
Those in the rallies carried Iran’s tri-colored flags and pictures of the Resistance’s leadership as well as placards, supporting the July 9 uprising and condemning appeasement. They were chanting, “Cry of every Iran is freedom,” “Democracy, Freedom with Maryam Rajavi.”
The resolution of the rallies read in part, “The coming to power of the most extremist faction of the clerical regime is the by-product of the Western policy of appeasement. This policy’s most serious windfall for the mullahs was the terror label against the main Iranian opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin (PMOI). Appeasement not only failed to bring about moderation in Iran, but also gave the mullahs freer reins in suppression and export of terror and in pursuit of nuclear weapons and ultimately led to an internal purge. Continuing appeasement would be a disaster. The solution for Iran is neither appeasement nor a foreign war, but democratic change by relying on the Iranian people and Resistance. The terror label against the Resistance is the biggest impediment to the realization of this change.”
The resolution also drew the attention of European governments to the conspiracies of the mullahs’ agents and activities by their espionage and terrorist networks against Iranian refugees as well as members and sympathizers of the Iranian Resistance. It called on them to pursue, punish and expel Tehran’s agents and prevent European soil from becoming the roaming ground for the Ministry of Intelligence.”
