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.

The mullahs’ regime is evil and against humanity. But words are not going to be enough. The EU and UN have the means to use sanctions against human rights violations.

All these mechanisms must be used. The regime murders because it is weak, and we must use all the pressure we can against it. The regime is also spreading propaganda to remove attention from the Iranian Resistance.

This is a democratic and responsible alternative to the current regime in Iran. They want a republic based on democracy, free elections, equality of men and women. Madam Rajavi is the living example of tolerant Islam and freedom for all Iranians.
