Today what began with a single woman is now a chorus of voices all around the world. To those of you in Iran who at the risk of your lives listened to us on radios or on flickering television screens or on devices in your hands, it is your time. We are ready. It is your moment. To the students, if you have not joined a brigade of resistance yesterday, join it today. If you do not join today, join tomorrow. But do not be a witness to history; take your lives in your own hands. To the workers who hear my voice and toil in the factories of the Revolutionary Guards, break your chains, lay down your tools, stop working to fund terror and misery and the destruction of your own country. Rise up to work to feed your own families in a new Iranian freedom. We are ready. The time is now.

To those in the diaspora, the Iranian community from Germany and France to Canada and America, the past is forgiven. We have a common cause, to restore the dignity of the Iranian nation, the freedom of the Iranian people, and build a secure freedom of liberty. There is only one organization that promises the destruction of the regime, the building of a democratic future that can muster the resources, make the sacrifices, and restore the nation. That organization is the PMOI/MEK and its leader is Madame Rajavi.

Gathered here today is what the regime could not buy: the respect, the dignity of other nations. I am proud to be here among the delegation of my own nation. Democrats or Republicans, liberals and conservatives, north, east and west, in the most distinguished group of united Americans it has ever been my pleasure to join. Committed to one common cause: the destruction of this regime now.
