ANALYSIS/OPINION:

We in the Nordic countries — Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland — feel very strongly for human rights. And that is why there’s a strong support in our countries to throw away the governments that do not respect human rights, including Iran. And it’s very important — when you want to have change, there must be an alternative and Mrs. Rajavi’s 10-point peace plan is the alternative part for a new democratic Iran.

Forty million Iranians live in poverty today, and the reasons are lack of human rights, lack of rule of law but [lots of] corruption. Iran is one of the most corrupted countries in the world with financing of terrorism and money laundering. Many people in the Iranian government put money that belongs to the people in their own pocket. We need sanctions against these people, and we need that money to be seized and returned to free Iran when that time comes. These people also mismanaged the Iranian economy and that’s why people are suffering. We see demonstrations in Iran and that shows that frustration.

But we know the history shows, the fall of the Berlin Wall shows, united people will also win over dictators. And this Ashraf 3, which is tremendous, shows that you have a strong commitment to have a change in Iran. It’s time for the people to take the power and believe in the faith of you who have the power in your own hands. We Nordics support your cause, free Iran, success.
