Calling for immediate release of imprisoned protesters, freedom of expression and association, lifting of the rule of repression and the compulsory veil
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), attended and addressed the official meetings of the European People’s Party (EPP), the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), and the Unified European Left (UEL) at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) in Strasbourg, on Wednesday, January 24, 2018. She elaborated on the latest developments in the Iranian people’s uprising against the religious fascism ruling Iran and answered questions by PACE members.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, hailed her courageous compatriots who staged demonstrations today in Tehran. She welcomed the protests by Iranians whose savings have been plundered by institutions affiliated with the mullahs’ Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) with the complicity of government agencies under Rouhani and previous presidents.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, hailed the demonstrators and those in sit-ins in various cities, especially thousands of Sunday demonstrators in Tehran, whose assets have been stolen by the institutions and foundations affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards, the judiciary, the police and other government agencies. She said these continuous and tireless protests are a clear indication of the will of the Iranian people to overthrow the mullahs’ regime that has had nothing for the Iranian people other than executions, torture, brutality, and plunder.
Mrs. Rajavi welcomes recent remarks by the Sheikh of Al-Azhar and the Pope regarding fraternity between the followers of Islam and Christianity and calls on followers of all religions for solidarity in confronting extremism
On Friday, 5 May 2017, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, met with Bishop Jacques Gaillot in Auvers-sur-Oise. In this meeting the threat of extremism under the pretext of religion and the genuine message of religions including Islam and Christianity for peace, fraternity and coexistence were discussed.
The Iranian Resistance's President-elect Maryam Rajavi extended her condolences to the families of dozens of mine workers who got killed in the explosion of Azadshahr Mine, as well as to all workers and residents of Golestan Province on this tragedy. She reiterated that the corrupt clerical regime is responsible for this bitter accident and the large number of casualties.
"In similar conditions in other countries, the governments usually mobilize all their resources to aid those afflicted," she said and added, "In Iran however, all the resources are either plundered or consumed to suppress the general public."
The enormous power in the unity of workers and other disadvantaged people will overthrow the mullahs' religious dictatorship
In a message on the International Workers Day, the Iranian Resistance's President-elect Maryam Rajavi sent a message to thousands of courageous workers in Iran who staged protests last year and expressed their demand for toppling the religious tyranny's corrupt, oppressive and despotic rule. She praised the fortitude of workers who voiced their protest at the cost of their jobs and those who were flogged and imprisoned or endured various forms of pressure and repression for doing so.
