Tehran, 3 Jul – Iranian political prisoner Ali Moezzi, who is father to two members of the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK), has sent a message from Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison declaring his support for the annual gathering of the Iranian Resistance held in Paris on 9 July.
“Undoubtedly, our nation has the right to live freely because the leaders and pioneers of PMOI have sacrificed themselves in prisons and on the streets”, he said.
“The 9 July gathering in Paris calls out solidarity, perseverance and the undeniable voice of oppressed Iranians. Accordingly, it will be attended by a myriad of international guests, fellow citizens, supporters, the relatives of political prisoners, families of Ashraf residents and liberated freedom fighters as well”.
“What makes this gathering valuable is the loyal support of those who support freedom and democracy, which can pave the way to a new Iran. Peace be upon you the protectors of honor and freedom. Your presence is the proof of the Iranian people’s legitimate and reasonable demands. Your presence is the promise of victory and justice. The prospect that some eyes and ears cannot see or hear. It is on the basis of this presence that we announce: We will build one, two, three, 100, and a thousand Ashrafs [bastions of freedom]”, he added.
The 9 July “Free Iran” rally has been organised by supports of Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
