Conference in EP with presence of Maryam Rajavi – Former MEP Struan Stevenson, Coordinator of the Campaign for Iran Change. Several Members of the European Parliament, joined by other dignitaries from across the Green Continent, attended a conference in the EP headquarters in Strasbourg, calling for a strong European approach vis-a-vis the Iranian regime’s human rights violations and warmongering. This session, organized by the European Parliament Friends of a Free Iran Intergroup and held on Wednesday, October 23, also called for accountability of Iranian regime officials in regard to the 1988 massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners in Iran. Most of these victims were members and supporters of the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
“We need a new policy on Iran and an end to the business-as-usual appeasement. This is a regime that boasts about its missiles and is racing to build nuclear weapons. This regime has slaughtered 120,000 people since 1979 and 30,000 people in the summer of 1988. The executions were carried out based on a fatwa by regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini. One of the key players was current Iranian regime Justice Minister Alireza Avaei. He was appointed by Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani, which the West regards as a moderate president. In the past 12 months, 270 people were hanged in Iran. Eight of them were juveniles. The medieval conditions in the prisons of Iran continue. This is a regime whose policy is based on the strategy of expansionism. They support Bashar al-Assad in Syria, the Houthis in Yemen, and the brutal Shiite militias in Iraq. They are attacking ships in the waters of the Persian Gulf. They are using their embassies to coordinate terror attacks here in Europe. Iran is also one of the most pro-western countries in the region. But they are ruled by corrupt mullahs who only want to further enhance their own lavish lifestyles. The people are sick of a regime that has bankrupted their country. Europe must show that we support the Iranian people and the MEK and NCRI. We must show support for Maryam Rajavi and her ten-point plan.” #FreeIran#Iran#MEK#PMOI#Maryam Rajavi
