MEK/NCRI supporters in Amsterdam rally in support of Iran protests

Members of the Iranian diaspora, supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) held a protest rally in Amsterdam, Netherlands on Saturday.

The MEK and NCRI supporters in Amsterdam held this rally to mark the 41st anniversary of the 1979 anti-monarchic revolution in Iran and honor over 120 thousand martyrs who have fallen for freedom ever since. They said that as Mr. Massoud Rajavi, the leader of the Iranian resistance has said, the Iranian people’s revolution has not died, it has been continuing in the form of an organized resistance against the current religious dictatorship.

The rally of the MEK and NCRI supporters in Amsterdam was also attended by some of the Dutch lawmakers and the representatives of the Iranian associations in Netherlands.

The participants of this rally also paid tribute to over 1500 martyrs of the nationwide Iran protests in November 2019 which erupted after the regime tripled the fuel price. The MEK and NCRI supporters in Netherlands also honored the memory of over 176 innocent passengers of the downed Ukrainian passenger airliner, which was downed by the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) on January 3,2020.

The participants of the rally in Amsterdam also echoed the Iranian people’s desire and will of boycotting the Iranian regime sham parliamentary elections on February 21. They held a banner which read: “My vote is the overthrow of the regime.”

They also echoed the call made by the NCRI’s president-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, upon the international community, particularly the United Nations to send a fact-finding mission to Iran to secure the release of over 12,000 people arrested during the Iran protests and investigate regime’s crimes committed against protesters political prisoners.  

The participants of the rally in Amsterdam held banners which read: “The overthrow of the religious dictatorship in Iran is inevitable,” and “It is time for the European Countries to cut their economic and economic relationships with the mullahs’ regime and recognize NCRI as a viable alternative.”

The participants of the rally in the Netherlands urged the Dutch government and the European Union to adopt a firm policy vis-à-vis the Iranian regime and prioritize human rights over economic interests. They also urged the EU countries to recognize the right of the Iranian people to overthrow the religious fascism ruling Iran.
