I’d like to join my colleagues in the European Parliament to express my best wishes for the Paris rally on the thirtieth of June for free Iran.
I believe the European Union and our governments must put human rights as their priority in dealing with Iran, Human Rights in Iran continued to deteriorate with peaceful protesters facing intimidation, violence, detention and torture. in a nationwide protest in December in January people protested against high cost of living poverty repression and the lack of freedom and democracy, these protests have continued and the right to free speech and peaceful protests of vital human rights, that the regime blame these protests on the P.M.O. I, shows how concerned the regime about the opposition movement under the leadership of Miss Maryam Rajavi.
women have played an active role in these protests and I really admire their courage as stand today in solidarity with my Iranian sisters and send solidarity to all of you thank you.
