The International Human Rights Day is actually the day of Iran and the people of Iran because my country is where people are most eager and thirsty for human rights.It is the day of Iran because it is the most oppressed country in the world today with all her freedoms enchained.
It is the day of Iran, because her people have fought most for human rights in our time. 120,000 PMOI [the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran] members and other freedom fighters have been executed, including 30,000 political prisoners who were massacred in 1988. And the PMOI members in camps Ashraf and Liberty who lost their lives for being steadfast against the clerical regime.
All of them have written Iran’s history of human rights in their blood; the eternal word they have written is freedom, a cause that will succeed with the Iranian people’s resistance.
