Conference in EP with presence of Maryam Rajavi – MEP Jan Zahradil

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). “What we see today is a change in balance. We see Iran and its fundamentalist regime having the appetite to become a regional hegemon and occupy other countries such as Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen. The EU is not willing to recognize the real threat stemming from the regime. If we allow the regime to become a regional hegemon, they will be a real security threat. The former EU foreign policy chief was promoting the appeasement policy and looking for economic deals with Tehran. It did not work. We should look for a firm and principled position. Your movement is the best organized opposition. Your ten-point plan includes the abolition of death penalty and equal rights for men and women. The EU must support your goals. For the sake of our own interests and security, we in this room must be able to send this message to all those who are unable to listen to this message.” #FreeIran#Iran#MEK#PMOI
