Iran, December 12, 2019—Following the nationwide November uprising that spread to over 190 cities across Iran, numerous political figures across the globe are voicing support for the Iranian people’s just demands to establish freedom and democracy.

Petri Sarvamaa, a Member of the European Parliament from Finland, said there is a large group of MEPs that are very shocked about the violence and crackdown imposed by the Iranian regime. As a result, these MEPs have taken action by issuing a statement to the European Union High Representative on Foreign Affairs demanding adequate action and emphasizing this is embarrassing and unacceptable for the EU to continue its appeasement policy vis-à-vis the mullahs’ regime. "We must hold the Iranian regime to account for its ruthless measures against the Iranian people," he added, underscoring that the Iranian people are truly seeking change. "We support the objectives of the Iranian opposition in its efforts to realize democracy in Iran," Sarvamaa added.

 

Senator Lucio Malan, member of the People of Freedom Party in Italy, said many politicians are standing alongside the freedom-loving people of Iran and their uprising for a free Iran. There must be far more pressure implemented on Tehran to be held accountable for its measures and stop its crimes, Senator Malan added. This Italian senator expressed his support for a plan presented by Iranian opposition President Maryam Rajavi, head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) for the future of Iran. This is a plan for a free Iran where women are treated in a fair fashion and the economy can prosper, he continued. In his message to the Iranian people, Senator Malan expressed his gratitude for their efforts. "You deserve the support of all freedom-loving people across the globe," he said, adding the Iranian people are fighting for freedom in Iran and across the globe.

Judy Sgro, a Member of the House of Commons of Canada, condemned the recent killing spree launched by the Iranian regime in the crackdown against demonstrations in Iran and the arrest of over 12,000 people. The Iranian people merely seek freedom and democracy, and this is a universal right, she added.

The Kyrgyzstan Human Rights Center issued a statement strongly condemning the vicious crackdown against the popular uprising in Iran that has to this day left over 1,000 dead, more than 4,000 injured and at least 12,000 have been arrested. Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani ordered the crackdown against demonstrators. The Kyrgyzstan Human Rights Center calls on the United Nations and all other Member States to publicly condemn this bloody crackdown. Independent observers and a UN fact-finding mission should be allowed to visit and inspect prisons all across Iran, the statement concluded.
