5000 Iranians demonstrate in Stockholm
Maryam Rajavi: The European Union should list Beyt Khamenei, the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS), main centers of suppression and terrorism, in the list of terrorist organizations and impose a comprehensive sanction on them
On Saturday, July 20, 2019, 5000 Iranians in a major demonstration in Stockholm called for a solid policy and comprehensive sanctions against the mullahs’ regime, terrorist listing of the IRGC, the MOIS and Khamenei’s Beyt (House), as well as recognizing the right of the Iranian people to resist to overthrow the clerical regime. They announced their full support for the Mojahedin and resistance units and supported Maryam Rajavi and her ten point plan for the future of Iran. They strongly condemned any relationship with and promotion of the mullahs’ regime and called on European governments to prosecute, punish, and expel intelligence agents and terrorist Quds force mercenaries.
The rally began at the Kungtärgården Square, with the speeches of the personalities, followed by the march in Stockholm centre and then returned to the Kungtärgården Square.
Maryam Rajavi, described the demonstrators as the vibrant voice of resistance units and the National Liberation Army throughout the world, who have risen up for the liberation of the Iranian people from persecution, poverty and injustice.
Rajavi said that the time of appeasement with religious fascism in Iran has ended, and the resistance and popular uprising have brought the regime to the end. There is no place for the minimum human rights, freedom of expression, justice, equality between women and men, the autonomy and the rights of minorities and nationalities, in the clerical regime. The mirage of transformation and illusion of reform and moderation in this regime will not deceive anyone anymore.
The meeting features the speeches of a number of political figures, including Rama Yad, the former Minister of Human Rights of France, Magnus Oscarsson of the Swedish Parliament, Senator Lucio Malan of the Italian Senate, Senator Gerald Michael Horkan and former Minister John Perry of Ireland, Edward Julius Solens, former Minister of the Iceland, Kimmo Sasi, former minister and parliamentarian from the Finnish Parliament.
In her speech, referring to the 5-day congress of resistance in Ashraf 3, Ms. Rama Yad said that what she saw there was a corner of the resistance’s invincible power and will for Iran freedom. “They are not only an opposition, or even an alternative, but like a state that is ready to save Iran from the destruction that the religious dictatorship has brought. I met people there who devoted all their lives to the freedom of their people.”
Senator Luci Malan said in his speech, "I ask European statespersons, what do you see in the domestic and foreign policy of this regime, which you insist on the policy of appeasement? Where are European values? Why do you insist on appeasement with a regime whose 40-year-old record is black? Today, pursuing of this policy is betting on a dead horse. The regime is on the verge of collapse. Even if we are thinking of our own interests, we must support the National Council of Resistance alternative. This not only for Iran's future but also for the future of the region, crucial in securing global peace and security.”
