For evil to prevail, all it needs is for good women and good men to do nothing. Now the British delegation joins with you today at this inspirational rally to make sure that something happens: On the platform, we have members of the House of Commons, members of the House of Lords. And our Parliament is the mother of all Parliaments, and we feel very strongly on democracy.
But this year is different from past years in that the Iranian regime — particularly its leader Khamenei — has been severely weakened. The mullahs are internally and externally very isolated. In Iran, society is in an explosive state. People are crying out in the streets for change. The country’s official opposition, the Iranian resistance, is expanding its activities inside the country. Internationally, it has emerged as the only democratic alternative to the theocratic regime.
Today, we do not want to talk about condemnation of the mullahs’ crimes; we want to talk about regime change, which is at long last within our grasp. We want to talk about a future Iran with Maryam Rajavi’s 10-point plan. The plan which gives freedom and human rights to all the people of Iran.
Let us hope that, in the future, freedom and justice will be secured for the people of Iran and their vanguards, the PMOI members. Madame Rajavi, you have our full support.
