Maryam Rajavi's Vision for Future Democratic Iran
" Freedom is the most precious value. It is the very essence of progress... For us, freedom is an ideal and a conviction. It is the spirit that guides our Resistance. Freedom is the raison d'être of our movement, it is the reason for its growth and development..."
" Iranian women must free themselves. Freedom does not come free and no one will ever deliver it to us in a silver platter. We must build relationships that are unimpeded by gender-based distinctions and discrimination. The path to liberation begins the moment you believe that no one can prevent the liberation of a woman who has chosen to be free of all fetters we all know too well...
On mullahs & Islam
" These demegogues commit their crimes in the name of Islam, a despicable and horrendous act, and itself one of their most heinous crimes. As a Muslim woman, let me proclaim that the peddlers of religion who rule Iran in the name of Islam, but shed blood, suppress the people and advocate export of fundamentalism and terrorism, are themselves the worst enemy of Islam and Muslims. The day will come when they will be forced to let go of the name of Islam."
On mullahs' misogyny
" Allow me as a woman to tell the wicked and misogynist mullahs: With all of your reactionary and medieval savagery, misogyny and oppression, you have done all you could do to Iranian women, but I warn you to beware of the day when this tremendous historic force is set free...
On her future mandate
" I have devoted my life to bring hope for a better future to the people of Iran... And to also prove to the world that Islam as a social and democratic religion is not belligerent and can be productive for women. This is the mandate that gives me inner satisfaction and a sense of true freedom... After the overthrow of the mullahs, we should, more than anything else, try to cure the sense of revenge and hatred amongst our people. We should create unity and expand the spirit of tolerance and patience in the society. It is our mandate to revive the identity and value of Iranian people."
" Whereas Khomeini espouses the culture of sorrow, despair, and disappointment..., the Iranian Resistance advocates the culture of love, jubilation, affection, life and happiness. So, it is the task of the Resistance at this juncture and in future Iran to prepare the ground for artists to flourish their ingenuity in an open, free and healthy environment. We hope that our genuine culture and art can take the spirit of life and hope, light and brightness, prosperity and abundance throughout the country and deep into heart of every Iranian, fueling the flames of hope for a better life and a brighter future."

Mayors and members of city councils,
Dear friends of Iranian resistance,
We have gathered here as a good tradition, like every year, to start the New Year with our closest friends of the Iranian Resistance to wish for a happy year ahead.
This is also an opportunity for us to express our gratitude for your loyal and lasting friendship in a hard struggle.
But I believe that we are not here just to exchange greetings an good wishes, rather, to inspire hopes that are based on realities which have already started to materialize.
