The mass Free Iran rally, “aimed at promoting human rights and democracy in Iran,” will see Iranians joined, from the Arab world, by the former Algerian prime minister, Sid Ahmed Ghozali, former Jordanian information minister, Salah Gualleb, former Egyptian Foreign Minister, Mohammed Orabi, and Palestinian Fateh movement member, Azzam Al Ahmad.
From the US, attendees include former US Congress Speaker, Newt Gingrich, and former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani.
This weekend’s rally, Al Arabiya reported, has been widely promoted under the hashtag #FreeIran, and “its attendees widely support regime change.”
The NCRI believes the regime is becoming more “closed and introverted,” the report continued, with executions at their highest in 25 years against a domestic context of public dissatisfaction, not least with sham elections, while Iran sows “discord in the region,” with support for repressive regimes and militias in Syria and Iraq, and the testing of ballistic missiles in violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231.
The rally, Al Arabiya reports, will support the 10-point plan of Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the NCRI, which calls for “the introduction of full democracy, equality for men and women, the abolition of the death penalty and the separation of religion and state.”
