Striving for a Democratic Republic:

The Inevitable Downfall of the Iranian Regime:

In a powerful speech on the second day, Rajavi shed light on the regime’s fear and desperation. She questioned why the regime, armed with various forces, would require proxy forces, and implore governments to suppress the Iranian Resistance if it was not concerned about potential uprisings and the forces of the Democratic Revolution. Rajavi reiterated the regime’s inevitable downfall, drawing a parallel with the Shah’s dictatorship and its eventual collapse despite external support. She called on governments worldwide to stop supporting the mullahs and recognize the Iranian people’s desire for a democratic republic.

Seeking Justice for Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide:

On the third day of the summit, Rajavi focused on the urgent need to prosecute the leaders of the clerical regime for their crimes against humanity and genocide. She commemorated the 30,000 political prisoners who were massacred in 1988 and praised the efforts of the Iranian Resistance and the Resistance Units in the fight for freedom. Rajavi highlighted the genocidal intentions of the regime’s leaders and called for a comprehensive investigation into the crimes. She expressed gratitude for the international support and stressed the importance of holding the perpetrators accountable.

The summit served as a platform to unite global figures in solidarity with the Iranian people’s aspirations for freedom, democracy, and equality. The combined efforts of the international community, the Iranian Resistance, and the Iranian people will continue to shape the future of Iran, ensuring that justice prevails, and a democratic republic emerges.
