Maryam Rajavi: the people of Iran will not be satisfied by anything less than overthrowing the ruling theocracy
On the eve of the 39th anniversary of the overthrow of the Shah’s regime in Iran, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi attended a gathering of Iranians on February 10, 2018. The President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran hailed all the martyrs fallen for Iran’s freedom in the 1979 Revolution up until the uprising in January 2018. She told the gathering, “The courageous uprising in December-January and its subsequent protests across the country proved that the Iranian people will not be satisfied by anything less than the overthrow of the clerical regime in its entirety. The presence of women and youths at the forefront of the protests guarantee the continuation of the uprising. Iranian women have not succumbed to the regime’s crackdown despite 39 years of systematic repression and humiliation, including the imposition of the compulsory veil.”
Maryam Rajavi: The clerical regime is a hundred times more dangerous than Daesh and confronting it is far more imperative
“Just as it was necessary to confront Daesh, it is far more imperative now to fight a hundred-times greater danger: the religious dictatorship in Iran, the IRGC and its mercenary militias.”
This was reiterated by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, in a speech to a conference in Paris focusing on “Explosive Conditions in Iran, Mullahs’ Regime in Crises”, on Saturday, December 16, 2017.
• The damages caused by the catastrophic earthquake were augmented by the mullahs’ ominous religious dictatorship
• The only way out of this calamity is rising up to bring down the clerical regime
A ceremony was held on Tuesday, November 21, 2017, to commemorate the victims of the earthquake in Kermanshah Province and in solidarity with the afflicted people in the affected areas. Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, extended her deepest condolences to the bereaved families, those wounded and injured, and all the victims of the disaster. She called on the nation to show their solidarity by rushing to the aid of the earthquake victims.
Cross party members of the British parliament and political personalities joined the Anglo-Iranian communities from across the UK and called upon the British government to take the lead for the establishment of an independent committee to investigate mass executions of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988 and to bring those responsible to justice. They stressed the time has come to end impunity for Iranian officials who are responsible for serious human rights abuses in the country.
On the fourth anniversary of the massacre of 52 PMOI members residing in Ashraf, Iraq, who were assassinated at the behest of the Iranian regime by the puppet governemt of Iraq and its agents, the Iranian Resistance’s President-elect Maryam Rajavi said: The mass execution of PMOI members was the hidden half of the regime’s retreat in the nuclear talks and the JCPOA. Before the start of the talks with P5+1 and signing of an agreement in November 2013, the regime resorted to the massacre in Ashraf. Following Khamenei’s approval of the JCPOA in October 2015, Camp Liberty was attacked by rockets. All the stages of the nuclear agreement, starting from secret talks to the signing of JCPOA, were accompanied by attacks on and slaughter of Ashraf residents. The regime needs to annihilate its most important existential threat, namely the PMOI and the Iranian Resistance, to guarantee its survival.
