Rome, Italy – July 12, 2023: The NCRI President-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, attended a conference at the Regina Hall of the Italian Parliament upon the invitation of the Inter-Parliamentary Committee for Free Iran.
During the conference, which featured members from both houses of the parliament, declarations from the majority of members in the Senate and Parliament of Italy were presented to Maryam Rajavi. These declarations expressed support for the Iranian people’s uprising, rejected the dictatorships of the Shah and the mullahs, and endorsed the Ten-Point Plan.
An excerpt from Mrs. Maryam Rajavi‘s speech at the Italian Parliament is as follows:
Today, I stand before you to urge the Parliament, the people, and the government of Italy to adopt this rightful and principled policy, which recognizes the Iranian people’s struggle to overthrow the religious dictatorship.
The Iranian people’s uprising represents the enduring legacy of the Resistance movement, which began over four decades ago in opposition to the regime.
Iranian women have risen up not only for their own demands but also for the overthrow of the clerical regime in its entirety. Their motto is “No to compulsory veil, no to compulsory religion, and no to compulsory government.”
The Iranian Resistance offers a credible platform and comprehensive plans for the future. Its Ten-Point Plan encompasses a vision of a democratic republic, founded on the principles of the separation of religion and state, gender equality, autonomy for various nationalities, the abolition of the death penalty, and a non-nuclear Iran.
The Resistance movement, placing its trust in the Iranian people, has the potential to bring about transformative change in Iran. It is important to note that we have never sought foreign governments to overthrow the regime, as we firmly believe that such responsibility rests with the Iranian people and their determined Resistance.
Our demand is straightforward: to respect the Iranian people’s aspirations and stop helping their enemy.
