David Clarinval, Mayor and MP from Belgium,Addressing “Free Iran – The Alternative” gathering in Paris in June 30, 2018:
Ladies and gentlemen, I am very happy to be here with you this afternoon in Paris for this extraordinary meeting.
And I am here because I have supported Ashraf for many years and we are very happy that PMOI members are now safe in Albania. It was a long fight.
The Iranian democratic opposition has a lot of support in Europe as you can see, but it also has a lot of support in my country, Belgium. No less than 140 parliamentarians from the Senate, the Parliament, regional parliaments, at all levels have signed this document in support of your fight.
I think that European governments, including my own government, should recognize that the regime has no future and that we must stand by the Iranian people for freedom.
