On Thursday, September 28, 2023, a conference entitled “Iran: One Year after the Popular Uprising” was held in Berlin. The conference featured several members of the Federal and State parliaments. Below is part of Maryam Rajavi‘s remarks to the several members of the Federal and State parliaments in Germany:
In the past year, Khamenei used all the regime’s military, intelligence, and political resources in an attempt to control the society, but he failed. The society continues to resist the regime, and any small incident could trigger another nationwide uprising.
The regime was unable to stop the relentless actions of the Resistance Units.
During the brief anniversary period of the uprising, these units conducted 400 anti-repression operations. In addition, the regime could not reduce its fundamental instability.
The Iranian regime executes more people per capita than any other government in the world
The regime’s numerous repressive agencies make widespread arrests every day.
However, despite such repression, the Iranian people hold dozens of protests and strikes every day and young people confront the security forces.
All these facts indicate that the clerical regime is sitting on a powder keg.
Despite the fact that all the factors that triggered the uprisings in 2017, 2019, and 2022 are still in play, the Iranian regime and its allies try to pretend that there are no more uprisings, and the regime has succeeded to control the situation.
This is a dangerous mistake, but many European governments are making the same mistake.
One of the most harmful consequences of this mistake is that it provides opportunities for the mullahs’ secret agents and their lobbies. Their main mission is to spread false information about the PMOI and the NCRI. They promote the big lie that there is no alternative to the regime and that appeasement of the regime is the only option.
Many of these agents pretend to be opposition figures, but the political and security agencies in Germany and other European countries are aware of their activities.
The intelligence services in Germany, the Netherlands, and other European countries have stated that the main objective of the Ministry of Intelligence in these countries is to gather information about the Iranian Resistance, demonize them, and spread false information about them.
The addresses and a list of names of these agents were in the green notebook belonging to Assadollah Assadi, the regime’s terrorist diplomat who was arrested in Germany. However, those names were never disclosed.
Tolerating these agents is a part of the disastrous appeasement policy.
This is why false information find their way to power circles, political parties, and media that are considered credible.
On the other hand, the regime is terrified of the inspirational role of Ashraf 3 for the Iranian people. Therefore, it is doing everything to destroy it.
The Iranian people’s demands are very clear:
• Recognize the right to resist, as outlined in the German Constitution, for the Iranian people.
• Include the IRGC on the EU list of terrorist organizations.
• Activate the trigger mechanism against the mullahs’ nuclear program, following UN Security Council Resolution 2231, by the European Troika.
Germany and the European Union should advocate for designating the regime as a threat to global peace and security under Chapter VII of the UN Charter.
