Roger Godsiff,Senior Member of Parliament, from the UK House of Commons.
Addressing “Free Iran – The Alternative” gathering in Paris in June 30, 2018:
Friends, it’s an honor to be with you today at this critical juncture in Iran’s history. I’m a Labor Member of Parliament in the House of Commons, and I join my colleagues from all the other parties in Parliament who are represented here today to stand in solidary with you and the brave people of Iran who have risen up against the ayatollahs and their murderous, authoritarian regime.
My friends, the time for a change of policy towards Iran is long overdue. United Kingdom and our colleagues in the European Union should join with the United States in recognizing democratic aspirations of the people of Iran and the desire for freedom and democracy.
European leaders must now recognize the mullahs’ regime for what it is. It’s a terrorist regime which exports terrorism through Hezbollah.
And my friends, it can never be a partner for peace in the Middle East. The United Kingdom and the EU must recognize the NCRI and Madame Rajavi’s ten point plan for the future of Iran. And it must also initiate a process of accountability at the UN to hold the regime and its leaders to account for decades of human rights abuses and for the massacring of thousands of political prisoners. My friends, long live a free and democratic Iran.
The United Kingdom and the EU must recognize the NCRI and Madame Rajavi’s ten point plan for the future of Iran.
