Conference in EP with presence of Maryam Rajavi – Anthea McIntyre

Several Members of the European Parliament, joined by other dignitaries from across the Green Continent, attended a conference in the EP headquarters in Strasbourg, calling for a strong European approach vis-a-vis the Iranian regime’s human rights violations and warmongering. This session, organized by the European Parliament Friends of a Free Iran Intergroup and held on Wednesday, October 23, also called for accountability of Iranian regime officials in regard to the 1988 massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners in Iran. Most of these victims were members and supporters of the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) “We MEPs speak as representatives of the people of Europe. The people of Europe have great empathy with the people of Iran. The 1988 execution of prisoners in Iran is a horrific crime, but it is not an isolated event. Suppression of women’s rights, arbitrary of arrests, a total lack of civil liberties, are hallmarks of Iran today. Iranians took to the streets on several occasions. In the last uprising, the hostility to the regime was very clear and the people called on Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei to go. The people do not want this regime. The EU policy must be based on this reality. The people of Iran are lookijg on with despair as they see the champions of western values turn a blind eye on their rights. There is a democratic alternative to this regime. It is led by Maryam Rajavi and your ten-point plan. Many members of this parliament support her. I look forward to the day when we are all able to go to a free Iran with Maryam Rajavi as its elected democratic president.” #FreeIran #MaryamRajavi #MEK#PMOI#Iran
