Remarks by Jean-François Legaret–Free Iran Global Summit, July 17, 2020

Jean-François Legaret, regional councilor of Ile de France and former mayor of the 1st arrondissement of Paris spoke at the opening of the Online Global Summit for a Free Iran which took place on July 17 and continued on July 19 and 20.

This annual gathering of the Iranian Resistance (NCRI) linked the voices for freedom from 30,000 locations in Iran and more than 100 countries, especially in Albania, to the city of the Iranian resistance at Ashraf-3. A thousand political leaders, parliamentarians, and religious and cultural figures from around the world participated. 


Here is the speech of Mr. Jean-François Legaret: 

Dear resistant Iranians, dear Ashrafis, 
Recently, with Italian and Albanian mayors, we signed the declaration supporting the ten-points plan of Madam Maryam Rajavi, confirming the pact signed a year ago in Ashraf with your Mayor, making your city the twin of the 1st arrondissement of Paris. 

We thus wanted to dedicate an important, symbolic, fraternal step in supporting your struggle, a prelude to the victory which is approaching, putting an end to the religious dictatorship of the mullahs. 

For more than a decade, thousands of French mayors and elected officials, present in large numbers at our meeting today, alongside many Italian mayors, have supported your struggle and morally shared your causes. Ashraf-1, Ashraf-2 in Liberty, Ashraf-3: You have demonstrated to the free world your strength of inflexible resistance despite blackmail, torture, massacres

Today the free world is watching Iran hit by the terrible Coronavirus crisis. The mullahs’ regime demonstrates its incompetence, ignorance, corruption and deepens the indiscriminate repression of a bloodthirsty dictatorship at the end of its rope, undermined by an economy on the brink of collapse. 

Your courage, the example of Ashraf-3, the will of Madam Maryam Rajavi, represents the democratic alternative, the light that illuminates the path of hope and freedom. 
Long live the free Iran of tomorrow.
