Hard to believe that an event that drew more people to Paris that day than both the Republican National Convention and the Democratic National Convention combined, which have been and will be covered world wide, would be ignored by the mainstream media. However, that’s what happened in Canada.
According to the Director of Operations at the Le Bourget Convention Centre in Paris, “Free Iran”, hosted by the National Council for Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its president-elect Maryam Rajavi, was attended by an estimated 104,000 and 106,000 people, to peacefully call for regime change in Iran.
Malcolm said, “Out of the speeches and all the promising aspects of the conference, my favorite moment came during the speech by the Hon. John Baird, Canada’s former minister of foreign affairs in the Harper government.”
Canada stood against the theocratic dictatorship under the Harper government, opposing a government that routinely executes gays and political opponents, funds global terrorism, and builds a covert nuclear program.
Malcolm observes that, “While Justin Trudeau and his foreign minister Stephane Dion sheepishly try to negotiate with the despicable regime in Tehran, and open the relationship back up, Baird reminds us of why it was closed in the first place.” and adds, “Canada used to stand with the people wanting freedom. We should continue to stand with the Iranian people, and oppose the tyrannical despots that control Iran today.
