Gathering in Berlin on the World Day Against the Death Penalty. The Online Conference Marking World Day Against the Death Penalty.
Dozens of German MPs and dignitaries joined an online conference.

The conference was under the title, Iran: Executions Means of Keeping Power, Stop Massacre of Protesters, The European Duty.

The event was hosted by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), in which participants strongly condemned the mullahs’ increase in human rights violations.

The event was attended by cross-party Members of Germany’s Bundestag (parliament) and European dignitaries.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran(NCRI), was the keynote speaker at this conference.

The panelists urged the European Union to end its policy of appeasement toward the regime and support the Iranian people’s desire for a free and democratic country.

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.

Christoph De Vries, Member of the German Bundestag

What we have see in Iran since 1988 to date is an ongoing crime against humanity. I condemn this practice of execution by the regime that from my point of view, a very clear sign of the weakness of this dictatorship and these crimes must have ramifications for the regime in Iran.

The regime’s leaders must also be held accountable for their crimes, impunity is not an option and here the West must not look the other way. The Iranian mullahs preach and spread fundamentalism and persecute dissidents. One example is the so-called Islamic center in Hamburg.

I tell you that has nothing to do with Islam and with religious freedom. This is a threat to internal security in Germany that we will not tolerate. It is indicative that there was a funeral service for the terrorist General Soleimani, who is known worldwide for terrorist attacks and killings and is responsible.
