My greetings to Mrs. Maryam Rajavi and to the tens of thousands of people who have joined virtually around the world.

You are waging a heroic uprising against the corruption and brutality of a terrorist regime. I say with unwavering confidence that a brighter future awaits Iran.

Since the tyrants governing Iran came to power in 1979, hundreds of thousands of Iranians have suffered arrest and death for standing up to these cruel rulers. The murderous officials in Tehran cannot whitewash the election of Ebrahim Raisi.

The election was a sham.

Raisi’s election means he is the first serving Iranian president to have been sanctioned by the U.S. government before entering office, for his involvement in human rights abuses including the mass execution of political prisoners in 1988.

Iranian political prisoners were asked to identify themselves. And those who responded “mujahedin” were sent to their deaths.

As we look to a brighter future, I am very impressed with the 10-point plan for a democratic Iran which also includes the rule of law, so important to a free society.

Your cause is just and noble. Oppressed people everywhere on earth are warmed by the flame from the lamp of liberty you hold with such courage and conviction.

Long live a free democratic Iran!
