By Bill Richardson
Iranian freedom has worldwide support
– Was that a great speech by President-elect Maryam Rajavi? [applause with YES] Was that a huge accomplishment, a huge message, by having a member of the Saudi royal family here? [applause]
The Regime’s Overthrow Is Certain, Iran Will Be Free
On Saturday, June 30, 2018, the Iranian Resistance’s grand gathering was held in Paris,
France. Delegations from various countries including prominent politicians, members of
parliaments, mayors, elected representatives, and international experts on Iran attended
the huge event. The speakers declared their support for the Iranian people’s uprising and
the democratic alternative, the National Council of Resistance of Iran. They called on the
international community to adopt a firm policy toward the mullahs’ religious fascist
tyranny and to stand by the arisen people for Iranian fredom. Below is the full text of Maryam
Rajavi’s keynote address
In America, Democrats and Republicans are fighting each other in the election. But today, Democrats and Republicans are here with you.
And you have so much support from around the world, from parliamentarians, from leaders from Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the United States — they’re all here. The movement grows; you’ve grown enormously.
Can there be change in Iran, and can you be the agents of change? [Applause with YES] Can the mullahs be the agents of change? [No!] You know, they continue their support of terrorism, they continue the executions and human rights violations, they continue to help Bashar Assad in Syria.
There are no internal reforms in Iran. Will you be the democratic alternative in Iran that will bring human rights and freedom and democracy? [Applause with YES]
The world must stand with the Iranian people and demand the end of the human rights violations and suppression in Iran. Iran should remove their forces from Syria. And we should stand behind the men and women at Camp Liberty. Free Iran.
