MEK / PMOI Free Iran rally in Albania – Kimmo Sasi, Member of Finnish Parliament, former Minister of Commerce supported MEK and Maryam Rajavi’s plan for a free and democratic Iran, July 13, 2019
Kimmo Sasi: Madame Rajavi, dear friends, we know that the foundations (of welfare) state are human rights, democracy, and income and social freedom. And we know that these rights belong to all citizens, all humans, in the whole world according to the United Nations Human Rights Declaration. We in the Nordic countries, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, feel very strongly for human rights.
Kimmo Sasi: And that is why there’s a strong support in our countries to throw away the governments that do not respect human rights, including Iran. And it’s very important when you want to have change there must be an alternative, and Mrs. Rajavi’s 10-point peace plan is the alternative part to new democratic Iran.
Kimmo Sasi: Dear friends, 40 million Iranians live in poverty today. And the reasons are lack of human rights, lack of rule of law, but corruption. Iran is one of the most corrupted countries in the world. And financing of terrorism and money laundering. And many people in Iranian government put money that belongs to the people in their own pocket. And we need sanctions against these people and we need that that money will be seized and returned to free Iran when that time comes.
Kimmo Sasi: And these people also mismanaged the Iranian economy and that’s why people are suffering. We see demonstrations in Iran and that shows that frustration. But we know the history shows, the fall of Berlin Wall shows, united people will also win dictators. And this Ashraf 3 that is tremendous shows that you have a strong commitment to have a change in Iran. It’s time for the people to take the power and believe in the faith of you who have the power in your own hands. We Nordics support your cause, free Iran, success.
