Iran Freedom Convention rallies bipartisan support for regime change in Iran

PMOI/MEK,6 April 2018—  On Saturday, representative from Iranian communities from 40 U.S. states gathered in Washington to attend the Iran Freedom Convention for Democracy and Human Rights. Also attending were distinguished U.S. politicians, including President Donald Trump’s cybersecurity advisor Rudy Giuliani and Former Governor Bill Richardson.

The speakers of the event voiced their support for the uprisings of the Iranian people and stressed the need for a firm policy vis-à-vis the regime of Iran, which is the record-holder of executions and a renowned state-sponsor of terrorism.

In a televised speech to the gathering, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), thanked the participants for their support for the aspirations of the Iranian people for the establishment of freedom and democracy in their country. Referring to the uprisings that spread across the country in December and January, Mrs. Rajavi stressed that the people of Iran “seek the overthrow of the clerical regime in its entirety” and call “on the international community, in particular, the West, to support their uprising.”

Mrs. Rajavi iterated the unwarranted concessions given to the mullahs as a result of the nuclear pact signed between the Iranian regime and six world powers, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and reminded that the Iranian resistance had at the time emphasized the need for the complete dismantlement of the regime’s nuclear program. The JCPOA effectively granted the Iranian regime free pass on its human rights violations and terrorist meddling in neighboring countries in exchange for limited caps on its nuclear activities. “Evicting the regime from the Middle East and preventing its regional meddling… is a fundamental principle that needs to be included in any agreement,” Mrs. Rajavi had said at the time.

Mrs. Rajavi also stated that the regime is in a critical state and the Iranian people are ready for more uprisings, and she underlined the need to neutralize the efforts of the regime and its cohorts to promote the policy of appeasement and the importance to be the voice of the Iranian people across the world.

Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle sent recorded messages to the convention and expressed their support for the cause of freedom in Iran.

In his keynote speech, Mayor Giuliani underlined the bipartisan support for the Iranian resistance in the U.S. He also spoke of his meeting with the members of PMOI/MEK in Albania and voiced his admiration for their efforts and determination in freeing their country.

Giuliani stressed that, in contrast to the previous administration, which did not support the 2009 uprisings in Iran, the current president of the United States will not turn his back on the people of Iran and is a vocal supporter of regime change in Iran. He also said that, contrary to other countries in the region, which underwent turmoil and chaos after revolutions, Iran has an organized alternative that can see to a peaceful transition in the country after the toppling of the regime.

Gov. Richardson stressed that the Iranian regime is nearing its end. He also praised the Iranian opposition and its leader, Mrs. Rajavi, for the sacrifices they’ve made to achieve freedom in their country.
