NCRI - The Iranian Regime suffers from many problems at home and abroad- all of its own making- that weaken its power and create opportunities for something new.
The most recent of these is the ongoing anti-regime protests- now in their second week- that showcase the regime’s deep regime’s unpopularity among its own people.
“The Iranian authorities must ensure the right to peaceful protest, investigate reports that security forces have unlawfully used firearms against unarmed protesters, and protect hundreds of detainees from torture,” Amnesty International said today as crackdown against demonstrations in the country continues.
The human rights organization said: “More than 1,000 people have been arrested and detained in jails notorious for torture and other ill-treatment over the past seven days, with many denied access to their families and lawyers.”
NCRI - As the Iranian people gather in their tens of thousands to protest a brutal Regime, many hope that soon the mullah’s reign will be consigned to history’s rubbish heap.
The only things that the Regime achieved after toppling the Shah was to bankrupt a rich nation, imprison a free people, and disappoint everyone who initially supported them, according to Abdulrahman al-Rashed, the former General Manager of Al Arabiya News Channel.

NCRI - Important points and remarks of Mike Pence in this interview are as follows:
•It’s important to remember, first and foremost, that Iran is the leading state sponsor of terrorism in the world. I mean, not only do they oppress their own people, deny human rights to their own, but they also export terrorism across the region and continue to be an enormously dangerous, destabilizing force. And so to see the people of Iran rising up to demand change in their country should hearten every freedom-loving American and people who cherish freedom around the world.
