On Friday, the Organization of the Iranian American Communities hosted a virtual congressional briefing in solidarity with nationwide Iran protests. This conference featured messages from a bi-partisan group of 33 United States House of Representatives members and had the opposition’s president-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi as its keynote speaker.
“Although the regime might resort to even more violence, the developments (events) of the past five weeks, and particularly the fighting spirit of the young generation, the existence of Resistance Units across the country, and people’s support for them show that we have entered a new phase,” Mrs. Rajavi emphasized in her video message to the congressional briefing on Friday.
“The uprising could not have continued without having some kind of organization or structure and the continuous activities of the Resistance Units on the ground,” she said, adding, “The uprising could not have continued without having some kind of organization or structure and the continuous activities of the Resistance Units on the ground.”
Mrs. Rajavi also underlined that Iranian women “play a leading role in the present uprising.”
“Women’s courage and leadership role did not emerge overnight, but they are rooted in the Iranian women’s 40-year struggle against this regime. Women do not demand anything from the regime. Their main demand is regime change. They know they need to overthrow the fundamentalist regime to achieve their rights,” she added.
