Norwegian MP Rasmus Hansson Speech to the Grand Demonstration in Brussels

Norwegian MP Rasmus Hansson Speech to the Grand Demonstration in Brussels
Norwegian MP Rasmus Hansson

During a grand demonstration held in Brussels on September 15, Norwegian MP Rasmus Hansson delivered a speech. Thousands of Iranian Resistance supporters took part in the rally and honoring the first anniversary of Iran’s 2022 uprising. The grand rally in Brussels was organized by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

The text of Norwegian MP Rasmus Hansson’s speech follows:

Dear friends, I can assure you that the Norwegian people wholeheartedly support your struggle for freedom.

Regimes that do not respect the values and rights of their own citizens also do not respect the values and rights of other countries. A dictatorship in one country is always a threat to all other countries. Therefore, your struggle, the Iranian people’s brave struggle for freedom and democracy, is the struggle for freedom for us all.

One year after the uprising in Iran, the international support for Iran’s opposition movement is growing. Many world leaders will no longer remain silent towards the Iranian regime. And in my country, Norway, the majority of the members of parliament are clearly supporting your fight for a democratic Iran.

This support is a response to the credibility of the NRCI that they have built based on grassroots support from courageous Iranians who are making the greatest sacrifices in their struggle for freedom. It is also a response to the NRCI’s exposure to the Iranian regime’s nuclear and terrorist threats. And it’s the main source of hostility and fundamentalism in the Middle East.

And even for Europeans, as we all know here very well, the aggression of the Iranian regime has become a reality, as its missiles and drones are now causing death and destruction in the European country, Ukraine.

So, as a parliamentarian from a peaceful and free country, I am therefore humbled, I am grateful, and I am deeply impressed by the courage shown by you Iranians fighting for democracy and freedom.

The democratic resistance in Iran has endured four decades of suppression. You carry out this fight in a country that is one of the largest accusers in the world. A religious dictatorship that exercises hostage-taking and gross human rights violations, has degraded education and art, caused economic collapse for the Iranian people, and removed all obstacles to destroying the environment in Iran.

Our history reminds us that resistance movements like yours, which stand firm and maintain their integrity under even extreme suppression, can inspire the world and redefine history. So I take this opportunity to express my strongest support to the courageous women and youth and the men at the forefront of the revolution in Iran, and I offer my heartfelt condolences to all those who have lost their loved ones during the fight.

And in this unbearable, but still promising situation, I am convinced that Maryam Rajavi’s Ten-Point Plan is the plan that offers a responsible and constructive alternative for the future of Iran. It is a comprehensive platform that establishes respect and implements human rights for all.

So, Iranian friends, your unwavering dedication to free Iran inspires everyone. We stand in solidarity with your struggle. We will earn our own countries to be much tougher on the Iranian regime, to stop any sort of support and acceptance towards that regime, and to recognize you and your movement as the righteous bearers of the future of Iran.

Together, we will work towards a brighter future for Iran, because your future is everybody’s future.

Azadi! Azadi! Azadi! Thank you.
