The prominent figures in the US Congress support the free Iran Gathering
Rep. Raul Ruiz, California Democrat
I am heartened by the ongoing protest in Iran calling for a free, secular, nuclear-free Iranian democracy and an end to the dictatorship of the current regime. I thank the organization of Iranian American communities for the work to achieve this vision for a free Iran. Together, we can make this a reality.
• Rep. Ruiz serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, California Republican
Together we send this message to the people of Iran. As you take to the streets to protest the brutality and corruption of the mullah dictatorship, we are on your side. Freedom will prevail in Iran. The people struggling there have the support of people throughout the world… You are also making sure that institutions and plans are made and available so that when the mullah regime collapses, there will be an Alternative, where people with democratic ideals and a concept of freedom will be able to put these things in place to replace the mullah dictatorship.
• Rep. Rohrabacher is Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats.
Rep. Ted Poe, Texas Republican
For many years, MEK has been in the forefront of calling out this despicable regime. Madam Rajavi, you are a hero to many, including my daughters and my granddaughters, and I have always been proud to stand with you. The cause of freedom in Iran is just and righteous.
