Maryam Rajavi: the ending year was the year of uprising, Ashraf and crumbling of the clerical rule, and the New Year is going to be the year of new strides towards freedom and popular rule
NCRI - Marking the Persian New Year on March 20, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, hailed the valiant martyrs of the Iranian people’s uprising over the past year and the martyrs of Camp Ashraf last summer. She congratulated the people of Iran who with their determination and persistence in confronting the mullahs’ tyranny illustrated the real message of Nowrouz, the Iranian New Year.
Mrs. Rajavi described the past year as the year of Ashraf, the uprising and the crumbling of the system of velayat-e faqih (absolute clerical rule), and the new Iranian year (1389) as the year of new strides towards freedom and popular rule. The mullahs failed last year in suppressing the uprising and eliminating Ashraf, she said.
