Conference in EP with presence of Maryam Rajavi – Rama Yade, former French Human Rights Minister

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). “The pain of the mothers of the 1988 massacre is still alive. What we need is the establishment of an independent inquiry into the 1988 massacre to shed light on this crime. There must be justice. Appeasement will not reduce the regime’s ballistic capabilities and its terrorism. What is important here is to give up this blank check and adopt a clear condemnation of the regime’s crimes. Women have paid an especially heavy price in the past two years. We must do more. We owe it to this great nation and people. We must support the desire of the Iranian people for regime change and the establishment of a secular government based on the separation of church and state, and gender equality. We are here in the heart of the European Parliament, whose members have just been renewed. You have a chance to rewrite history in the way that your predecessors could not. The global focus of today’s tensions are in Iran. It’s not easy. The Iranian Resistance has suffered it for so many years. So many Iranian citizens have lost their lives in the past years. ” #FreeIran
