Why the U.S. must protect Camp Liberty

This year we join in solidarity once again to remember the deadly rocket attacks on Camp Liberty in 2013 and to demand that the people in Camp Liberty live in safety and security. No longer the targets of terrorist acts. No longer the victims of violence. No longer left unprotected.

The Democratic alternative for Iran is you

I have three questions. One, will there be change in Iran? [Crowd: Yes!] Number two, is there a democratic alternative opposition? [Crowd: Yes!] Number three, is the current Iranian regime reasonable and moderate? [Crowd: No!] Very good.

America must unequivocally demand a non-nuclear Iran

The ayatollah must go. Gone. He and Rouhani and Ahmadinejad and all the rest of them should be put on trial for crimes against humanity for the thousands and hundreds of thousands of people they have killed, and it is about time we stop ignoring it.

A plan to liberate Iran

Maryam Rajavi's steadfast message, to political and religious leaders around the world over a period of many years, is a 10-point plan for the future of Iran that would resolve Iran's most dangerous and destabilizing challenges.

We must avoid a 'diplomatic Waterloo' with Iran

This year, much of Europe — although not France — will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. This decisive moment in history ended the Napoleonic era and effectively ended centuries of French domination of Western European politics.

The Iranian regime remains a threat to liberty

The Iranian regime remains a threat to liberty, a threat to peace and a threat to stability in the region. Iran continues to support terrorism, to suppress all forms of free expression, violates human rights and seeks to build nuclear weapons that undermine the security of the United States and our allies in the region.

Time to free MEK members from their Iraqi prison camp

I know many of you are frustrated that 2,500 of your comrades are still in prison at Camp Liberty. We have been here many times and talked about getting them out to safety, and nothing seems to change.

Iran is a ticking time bomb

Your organization (the National Council for the Resistance of Iran) is a pillar for democratic change in a time of turmoil.

End Iran's nuclear ambitions by getting rid of the ayatollahs

The ayatollahs have never been closer to their 30-year-plus objective of getting deliverable nuclear weapons. They are clearly intent on getting an agreement with the five permanent members of the Security Council and Germany that will lock in that achievement.
