INU - During the recent Free Iran gathering, organised by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), former MEP Struan Stevenson gave a stirring speech about the Iranian people and their opposition, comparing the ongoing uprisings in Iran to a volcanic eruption, noting that things in Iran will soon change forever.
He said: “I’ve been transfixed watching television over the last month about the volcano in Hawaii. Looking at the constant tremors, the earthquakes, the explosions. And it occurred to me before coming here that that geophysical phenomenon has a lot in common, a lot in parallel with the political situation in Iran… there is going to be an eruption of volcanic proportions which sweep away this evil regime.”
That uprising began in late December, spreading quickly across 142 cities in 31 provinces with hundreds of thousands of people taking to the streets. The Regime responded with violence, sending in their brutal security forces to kill at least 50 people, arrest 8,000, and torture 14 to death in prison.
Stevenson said that the people of Iran have had enough of the mullah’s malign behaviour, including stealing money from the Iranian people, propping up the Bashar Assad dictatorship in Syria and financing terrorist proxies (i.e. Hezbollah) across the Middle East. That is why the Iranian people are chanting “Death to [Supreme Leader Ali] Khamenei” and “Death to [President Hassan] Rouhani”, exposing the notion of Regime moderates as false, and siding with the MEK and its leader Maryam Rajavi.
Stevenson also advises that the Regime can recognise the warning signs, which is why the mullahs have started to point the finger at the MEK and Maryam Rajavi as the organisers of this protest. This is strange, as the Regime constantly portrays the MEK as an insignificant group that was not popular in Iran. Even the mullahs now admit, that where Maryam Rajavi leads, the Iranian people will follow.
He said: “They fear [Maryam] Rajavi, and the reason they fear [Maryam] Rajavi is because they fear democracy, they fear justice, they fear freedom.
Stevenson then went onto explain how Europe should get tough on Iran by withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear deal and reimposing sanctions, as the US had done as this will help bring the downfall of the Regime.
He said: “I have a message for all those European companies who seem to have forgotten the words human rights when they try to sign these rich commercial deals with the Iranians. For every dollar that they make in Iran they’re going to lose a thousand dollars in America. The reality is they cannot continue to do business with this evil Iranian regime.”
Stevenson went onto explain that Maryam Rajavi, as the leader of the MEK and NCRI, deserved an invite to the UK, as she has already visited many other capitals in Europe
He concluded: “We are facing very quickly the volcanic eruption that I spoke about. We are facing the end of this regime and it is our job to see that [the MEK], and [Maryam] Rajavi are in [a] position to take power, to restore democracy, restore freedom, and restore justice to the people of Iran. They are praying for that day.”
