The supporters of the NCRI and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK) also gathered in front of the “Reichstag” building in Berlin at the same time to protest against the recent executions in Iran, demanding the EU stand with the Iranian people and their Resistance in the struggle for freedom and to end the policy of appeasement toward the ruling regime in Iran.
Thomas Nord, Member of the German Bundestag
The terror in Iran has not reduced. Many people have been executed because of their protests against the mullahs regime and because they stood up for democracy in Iran.
There are many people in Germany who support the overthrow of the regime. We know they use terror in Iran and in Europe.
They try to discredit the NCRI. We will not stop our support for the NCRI. Their path is right, and we must resist against the mullahs. We must also support the people in Iran and show our solidarity with them.
