Drum beats in Paris Call for ‘Regime Change” in Iran

Iran News Update – A large group of Iranian youth take the stage at the Villepinte rally today clapping their hands and beating on their drums calling for a “regime change” in Iran.
“Sarnegooni – Sarnegooni” is the Persian word heard through the act. 
The act follows speeches made by US personalities such as Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, Robert pittenger, and many others who spoke in support of the Iranian Resistance and Mrs. Maryam Rajavi.
Mrs. Rajavi is the President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran which is a coalition of Iranian political forces in exile who work together for the cause of freedom and democracy in their country.  
Rajavi address the crowed earlier during the program warning the international community about the safety of residents in Camp Liberty in Iraq.  “The morning after his defeat during the Presidential elections in 2013, Khamenei ordered a rocket attack on Camp Liberty. And two years ago, when he decided to sign the nuclear accord, he ordered that Ashraf residents be massacred,” warned Rajavi about the safety of members of the Iranian opposition who currently live in Camp Liberty in Iraq, adding “The mullahs' real aim is to annihilate the residents of Liberty or [force] their surrender to the regime. This explains why the regime is hindering their relocation out of Iraq.”
“Today, western policy makers stress that ISIS and Bashar Assad are the two sides of the same coin. I add that the Caliphate in Tehran is the godfather of both of them,” said Mrs. Rajavi noting the real threat that the Iranian regime poses against the international peace and security.  “I therefore call upon western governments to refrain from taking sides with the Tehran regime,” she added.
Earlier, in an exclusive interview with Eric Shawn of Fox news, Mrs. Rajavi asked the western governments currently in negotiations with the mullahs regime regarding its dangerous nuclear program to “adopt a firm policy” toward mullahs and “make it clear to mullahs ruling Iran that they have to abandon their nuclear weapons program.”  “"No concession should be made to this brutal regime,” she stressed expressing her concern that the west may be leaning towards easing the economic sanctions on the mullahs.

In her interview, Rajavi called on world leaders to make “no concessions” to the Iranian mullahs as this regime cannot be trusted.  She asked P5+1 to be firm with the mullahs and make it clear to them that they should “abandon their nuclear weapons program.”

The NCRI is holding a large gathering today in Paris to tell the world that there is another face for Iran which will not threaten it with support for terrorism and building a nuclear bomb.

Lord Carlile, a prominent British peer, hails for a strongly united European Union as a means of declaring their support to the Iranian people’s desire for democratic change. 

He urges EU leaders to come together as a strongly united organization to eliminate any weakness which the Iranian Regime could take advantage of during the P5+1 nuclear talks.

In his Huffington Post article, Carlile wrote, “Given the global importance of the Iran nuclear issue, it is important that whatever political disagreements occur between the EU3, as they are called, they do not present the Iranians with an opportunity to seize on them for their own advantage.”
