Thousands of Iranian Americans rallied outside the United Nations in New York on Tuesday, September 24, to denounce the presence of the Iranian regime’s President at the UN General Assembly and to echo the voice of the millions in Iran who seek regime change.

Mrs. Rajavi further stated: “Following the clerical regime’s recent attack from inside Iran against Saudi oil facilities, the real question facing the world is no longer who conducted the attack, but they need to advance a policy of decisiveness and firmness against this regime.”
The policy of appeasement toward Iran’s regime has fostered catastrophes, and there is only one way to undo the damage and that is to stand on the side of the people of Iran who have risen up to uproot the central banker of terrorism, she said.
“The regime in Iran is neither capable of reform nor can it change its behavior; it will never abandon weapons of mass destruction, human rights abuses, and promotion of fundamentalism and terrorism; it gets emboldened by appeasement and it only understands firmness and strength,” Mrs. Rajavi added.
“The mullahs’ regime is weak and at an impasse. Its adventurism and evil acts in the region are expanded only because no other party has stood up to it. At the same time, the people of Iran are the regime’s primary victims.”
Maryam Rajavi summarized the demands of the Iranian people from the international community:
- “The UN Security Council must declare the clerical regime a threat to global peace and security. And, the dossier of the regime’s human rights violations, particularly the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988, must be referred to an international tribunal.”
- “Ousting the clerical regime from the rest of the region and expelling the IRGC and proxy militias from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, and Afghanistan is an urgent imperative.”
- “We urge all countries to join the international front against the religious fascism.”
- “The international community must recognize the right of the Iranian people’s Resistance to overthrow religious fascism and achieve freedom.”
