Maryam Rajavi calls for progress for Iranian human rights in 2016


President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Maryam Rajavi, offered her hope for 2016 in a recent meeting between members of the Iranian Resistance and their French allies.

Speaking at the Resistance headquarters in Auvers-Sur-Oise, France, Rajavi emphasized that foreign powers needed to do more moving forward to eliminate the source of Islamic fundamentalism, calling on the international community to “adopt a firm policy to expel the Iranian regime from Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen.” Rajavi also reflected on recent humans rights violations in Iran – notably, last year’s increase in executions by the Rouhani regime.

Rajavi is optimistic that the New Year will provide more hope for Iranian human rights. Advocating for a humane future, Rajavi declared: “The Iranian Resistance advocates for a tolerant republic based on the separation of religion and state, abolition of the death penalty, and women’s equality in tomorrow’s Iran.”

“We are capable of doing a lot together,” Rajavi closed, “We can do things that are essential to the freedom and human rights in Iran.”
