President-elect Maryam Rajavi, the crimes that the Ayatollah’s regime perpetrates against its own people, the starving of an entire nation for the purpose of eliminating opposition, the support to fanatic proxies to dominate and frighten the region, and the genocidal aggression and terrorism by IRGC, make Iran the number one worst terrorist state. These are the reasons why action is needed. Justice and democracy will be very soon the reality for your country with the freedom to vote. A widely popular political and moral force has grown and even strengthened during the present crisis. The regime is very frightened. The movement is led by Madame Rajavi and inspired by her 10-point program for democracy in Iran. Your movement is invincible because it’s driven by the example of hundreds of thousands of heroes who died for freedom and democracy in Iran. We all owe to them so much.

An open wound is still bleeding after 40 years since 24th of April 1990, Iran’s most renowned human rights activist, Ambassador Kazem Rajavi was brutally murdered in Geneva. The killers, although officially tried, have still not been punished. That happened also for many other terrorist attacks commanded by the regime on European soil. The regime’s embassies, which act as launching pads for terrorists, must be closed immediately.

Still worse, no one has ever been held accountable for the 1988 massacre, even as a growing number of Iranian officials have acknowledged their role as perpetrators. One of them sits at the top of the judiciary, and another is minister of justice.

The time of impunity is over. In Iran, regime change would be the dawn of a new era for human rights and freedom. A wakeup call came last May from the U.S. House of Representatives with its full support to the Iranians for a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear Iran. That must also become the European Union’s firm commitment.
