Rama Yade Nothing can put out the light of hope in your eyes
Forty years of fighting for democracy, for freedom, for equality… Your sacrifice has been great. It’s touching me, it’s talking to me.
It is not just for Iran that you have made that sacrifice. It’s for humanity.
Your emotion, your will, your sense of sacrifice, you don’t have to be Iranian to feel that.
The humanity we share is enough. History will remember that the Iranian Resistance is one of the greatest struggles that are changing the world.
By changing Iran, you will change the world. But do you know what upsets me the most? Your victory will be ours, but your sacrifices are only yours.
Let us be clear, these are not sufferings that belong to the past, but there’s present suffering. It is today, and every day, that the members of the MEK face terror.
The December 2017 uprising, you paid for it.
The November 2019 uprising, you paid for it.
The 2020 revolt after a Ukrainian plane was shot down by a missile or rather by the regime’s incompetence, 176 innocent passengers paid with their lives.
In the MEK, you paid for each of these events.
