At a conference in Paris, called “Iranian youth for regime change”, the participants commemorated the anniversary of Iran’s 1978 revolution for justice and freedom and paid tribute to the martyrs of the recent Iranian people’s uprising against the clerical tyranny ruling Iran.Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President elected by the Iranian resistance, was the keynote speaker of the conference.

 At the beginning of her speech, she saluted the people and youths who overthrew the Shah’s dictatorship and the youths who have risen up today to overthrow the mullahs’ dictatorship.

Mrs. Rajavi commemorated the vanguard women and men who created the revolution in 1979 and remembered the great martyrs of the Iranian people, pioneers of the struggle for freedom at the Shah time.

Then Mrs. Rajavi referred to the glorious resistance of the Iranian people against the clerical regime with their organized resistance alternative, NCRI, and its pivot Organization PMOI. The resistance which is crystallized in the countless number of uprisings throughout Iran and in the profound awareness in the society.

Mrs. Rajavi pointed out the role of the Iranian young generation in the equality movement and the fact that this is the Iranian society’s most important achievement in resisting against a misogynous regime and persisting that, Iran’s future will be founded on women’s equality.

Mrs. Rajavi highlighted another feature of the Iranian society’s awareness which could be seen in its public embrace of the principle of separation of religion and state. This principle was adopted in a ten-point plan by the National Council of Resistance of Iran in 1985.

Mrs. Rajavi pointed to the slogan chanted in Iran uprisings “death to the principle of Velayat-e Faqih,”and called that as a significant sign of the failure of fundamentalism.

Mrs. Rajavi encouraged the young protesters seeking regime change, to keep faith in the continuation of the uprisings that they have started, until the falling of the Mullahs’ regime.

Mrs. Rajavi underscored that uprising is not going to stop in Iran due to the three essential elements that created the protests and still exist, including, an accumulated and explosive discontent, a general change in the international atmosphere against the regime, and the significant factor of leadership and organization of the uprising.

  Reiterating the strong motivation of the women in the struggle to bring down the misogyny Mullahs’ regime and the part of the workers and toilers in that regard, Mrs. Rajavi rejected all forms of the compulsory veil, compulsory religion, and compulsory government.
