Welcome to Albania and welcome to the beginning of free Iran here in Ashraf 3. I want to thank MEK and NCRI for bringing here in Albania friends from around the world. Yesterday and today, we have heard Mayor Giuliani, Senator Lieberman, a lot of dignitaries talking about what to do more, what’s the next step. But I think we all agree on one thing: The time for change in Iran is long overdue.
The American government has stood up against the Iran regime, and we all hope and wish that also the European Union and European countries still stand together as they stand for democratic values, for human rights, for liberty and freedom. They should stand for liberty and freedom of people of Iran as God-given rights.
Last year, the Albanian government expelled the Iranian ambassador and the deputy ambassador, and some were arrested because they planned a terrorist attack against the people of Ashraf 3 when Mayor Giuliani and us were gathered together to speak about the future of Iran. They will not stop doing whatever they can to create problems and issues for the people here.
Madame Rajavi, your 10-point plan is for sure the way for a free Iran. At the same time, it’s an aspiration for all the people that do believe in God-given rights, in freedom and liberty and pursuit of happiness.
Let me end by saying we would rather be remembered as people that fought for freedom of our people, freedom and liberty of the Iranian people together with you than as people that just watched oppression, killing, terrorism, and did nothing. We don’t want to be the observers of history but doing history.
