Maryam Rajavi: Iranian prisoners protest against execution demonstrates will for overthrow of regime

NCRI – Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, praised the hunger strike by some 3,000 prisoners in Ghezel Hessar prison in protest against the execution of their fellow inmates and described their perseverance as a praise-worthy example of the spread of the spirit of resistance and dissent against the anti-human regime of mullahs.

She stated that the great hunger strike by prisoners, the gathering in protest of their families in front of Ghezel Hessar prison and regime’s parliament, and the protest against the massacre and executions in various parts the country, from Kurdistan and Azerbaijan to Karaj and Tehran, demonstrates the will of the people to overthrow the regime of Velayat-e faqih that can keep its reign only through executions and massacre and if it stops suppression, torture and execution even for one day, that would be its demise.

Mrs. Rajavi hailed families of the executed prisoners, especially the suffering and mourning mothers, wives and children, and called on the whole Iranian people, in particular the youth, to rise to their support.

She emphasized that if this regime believes it can hide its crises-riddled state and its mounting internal conflict that is a consequence of giving in to the nuclear agreement by the wave of executions and suppression and massacre in Ashraf and Camp Liberty, it is badly mistaken.

Mrs. Rajavi added: Silence and inaction on part of U.S. and EU regarding the wave of executions in Iran that after the sham presidential election is now approaching the figure 400, has raised the rage and abhorrence of the whole Iranian people. She warned that overshadowing human rights and democracy under the pretext of nuclear negotiations, is not only flagrant violation of universal values, but would even embolden this regime in its pursuit of the project to attain the nuclear bomb.
