Maryam Rajavi: Iranian people want regime change in Iran
During Rouhani's tenure, the Iranian people have gained only added executions, squandering of unfrozen assets after lifting of sanctions, and further meddling in the region
NCRI - Richard Ashworth, a Member of the European Parliament from the United Kingdom, has reiterated that the Iranian regime’s president Hassan Rouhani is not a ‘moderate’ as he claims to be.
Mr. Ashworth, who is a strong supporter of freedom and democracy in Iran, pointed to over 1000 executions carried out in Iran in 2015 under Rouhani’s watch.
NCRI – The terrorist Quds Force of the Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) in a ludicrous report about the death of a smuggler and four of his companions in Iran’s Sistan and Baluchistan Province (south-east Iran), claimed that this individual was a former member of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) who was involved in armed robbery, rape, and murder.
Rouhani’s visit to Austria was called off due to the Austrian government’s refusal to cancel PMOI demonstration
Following contradictory remarks by the Iranian regime leaders and state media on the reason for calling off Rouhani's visit to Austria, the speaker of the regime’s Parliament Ali Larijani announced on April 2 that the visit had been called off because of a demonstration by the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). He voiced support for Rouhani's decision to cancel the trip and said: “The Austrian government had ‘ignored’ requests by Iranian President’s security team to revoke the demonstration permit for the PMOI during the visit.”
“Hassan Rouhani is no moderate. He is no reformer. He is a fascist and a killer. He is not welcome here,” Struan Stevenson, former president of the European Parliament’s Delegation for Relations with Iraq, told the thousands of supporters of the Iranian opposition in Thursday’s rally in Paris protesting the visit by the president of the clerical regime to France.
“We Europeans should be on the side of the people of Iran. We should be on the side of freedom, not oppression. We should not deal with tyrants.”
On Sunday, January 24, 2016, a conference was held at the office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran in Auvers-sur-Oise (north of Paris) with political personalities and elected representatives of France participating. The conference was entitled, "Solidarity of France's Elected Representatives with the Iranian Resistance against Extremism under the Banner of Islam."
In her remarks to the conference, Mrs. Rajavi noted: During the regime's presidential elections, Rouhani promised to promote moderation. However, he is coming to Europe in a few days' time with an ominous record of 2,000 executions, consecutive executions of political prisoners, rocket attacks on Camp Liberty, rampant poverty, unemployment and economic stagnation in Iran, stepped up deadly interferences in Syria and Iraq, warmongering in Yemen, terrorism in Kuwait and Bahrain, testing new missiles, etc.
