Ingrid Betancourt, former Colombian Senator and Presidential Candidate at the Free Iran Rally
Former Colombian Senator and presidential candidate, Ingrid Betancourt speaks at the Free Iran Convention in Paris, June 30, 2018: “Since last December 28 we are witnessing how Maryam Rajavi has been delivering what she promised.
Here in the same forum some years ago, she announced a thousand Ashraf’s to topple the corrupt theocratic dictatorship in Iran and that is happening right now. Maryam Rajavi‘s determination has brought this thousand Ashrafs to life inside Iran. But it is the courage, the sacrifice paid with blood and the love of those who are fighting in the streets in all the provinces, in all the capitals, and also in Tehran that will bring this uprising to victory.
“To the thousands and thousands of women leading the protests, mothers, daughters wives, sisters of the martyrs of the 1988 massacre, to the young people of Iran throwing stones, burning the dictator’s portraits, attacking the strongholds of the corrupt regime of the mullahs, to the 80 million of Iranians held hostage by the Iranian tyrants, we are with you in every step.
We are with you inch by inch in the path to democracy, we are with you in every heart beats, in every cry, in every tear, in every wound, with you until you are finally free.
A journalist asked me today, to me, I don’t know why to me. But he asked me is President Trump was officially supporting Maryam Rajavi and the MEK. Listen to Rudy Giuliani I answered. He is not only the attorney of President Trump, he’s also at the core of the brilliant minds responsible for the strong support to the Iranian opposition. And you can see here the thousands of people all over the world coming from all the countries supporting the opposition in Iran. Thank you.”
