Supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) staged a large demonstration in front of the European Union summit in solidarity with the Iranian people’s uprising. The demonstration of freedom-loving Iranians began with the singing of the Iranian national anthem.
In this meeting, the European Union will review the application of new sanctions against the Iranian regime. Freedom-loving Iranians emphasize the following demands in this demonstration:
1. Making all relationships and negotiations with the mullahs’ regime conditional on the release of all political prisoners and those arrested in the uprising
2. The recognition of the right of the Iranian people to overthrow the religious dictatorship, and the right of legitimate mutual defense against the brutal repression of the regime
3. The closure of the Iranian regime terror embassies and the expulsion of intelligence mercenaries and regime spies from European countries.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) sent a message to the Iranians’ demonstration in Brussels and said: “on its 36th day, the magnificent Iran uprising continues to shake the pillars of Khamenei’s oppression, crimes, and injustice. Your rally today is now sending a powerful message to the world. The message of the Iran uprising to the leaders of the 27 European Union member states, presently meeting in Brussels, and to all the world leaders is that the mullahs’ era has ended”.
Mrs. Rajavi added, “the era for an international Iran policy based on engaging the clerical regime has also ended. Now, the people of Iran, the Iran uprising, and the Iranian Resistance are the ones who will have the final say. Recognize the Iranian people’s struggle to overthrow the regime.”
Abolghasem Rezaei, the secretary of the National Council of Resistance of Iran emphasized the protests in Iran. In his speech, Mr. Rezaei declared “The nationwide uprising of the people of Iran and the relentless struggle of the resistance units neutralized the sinister conspiracy of the mullahs who wanted to insinuate that the disaffected people want to return to the past and royal fascism, and in this uprising, there is no mention of those slogans made by the mullahs, but the people in Their slogans are about the future. The slogan of death to the oppressor, whether it is the king or the leader, or the people of Iran are awake and hate the king and the sheikh, have become public slogans in such a way that even the current televisions are forced to broadcast them. In other words, the national and historical demarcation of neither the mullahs nor the king shines in the political atmosphere of Iran and promises an independent and democratic Iran.
During these four decades, the people and the resistance of Iran did not stop with their strategy and followed this path by paying the heaviest bloody price, and of course, in this idealistic and patriotic path, they blamed the thorns of Mullahs and those who compromised with the enemy, who played the ominous songs of course, Khomeini. They said it was opposite. And also with the daggers of the colonial appeasers who were hand in hand with the medieval reaction.
But fortunately, today, 41 years after the Mujahideen declared that this regime is unreformable and there is no other way but to overthrow it, and they turned to resistance, now those who did not allow another revolution on our people, are facing the reality of uprising and revolution and nationwide uprisings. In Iran, they admit and many of the propagandists of regime reform and transformation talk about the necessity of revolution and overthrow, as the head of the National Council of Resistance said, we welcome them to enter the front of subversion and overthrow, however late, and we hope that they will come to the end. Stay on this front.“
