Detlef Wagner, Deputy Mayor of Berlin, addressed an online event in Germany on October 8, 2020, to draw attention to the human rights abuses in Iran.
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.
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.

Is it wrong to say I want to be free? Is it wrong to go to the street and say the mullahs are taking away my dignity? The mullahs are killing people. What are they doing? They have killed and tortured not only in their country, but also elsewhere. They killed Iranian dissidents in my own district in the Mykonos restaurant.
In 2018 more than 100,000 people attended an event in Paris to protest the regime, and I was shocked to hear that a man linked to the regime tried to bomb the event. While the mullahs’ regime exists, I will attend every event and call for the overthrow of this regime.
