Conference in EP with presence of Maryam Rajavi – Petras Auštrevičius, MEP from Lithuania

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 should agree among ourselves that we have to invest in this action as long as it will be needed. We are here because we disagree with the ayatollahs in Iran. We make statements, rallies, meetings. It is the right thing to do. But we should also commit ourselves to continue this until we see a democratic Iran. We should keep our hopes for Iranians. They should not be left alone. Once you see even a small sign of hope, which brings to you a confidence and belief in the future, all of those obstacles become nothing. Walls are sometimes destroyed by the will of people. We are with you for a different future for Iran.” #FreeIran
