Iran, July 15, 2020—Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani announced on his Twitter account on Sunday July 11, that he will participate in the annual gathering of the Iranian Resistance, the “Free Iran Global Summit: Iran Rising Up for Freedom,” along with other prominent American leaders, Joseph Liberman, Judge Michael Mukasey and Senator Robert Torricelli.
“Senators Lieberman and Toricelli, Judge Mukasey and I and many other leaders, worldwide, will be speaking. There are real possibilities for a free and non-nuclear Iran. Join us to find out,” Giuliani tweeted.
Giuliani and Liberman, a former U.S. senator and Vice Presidential candidate in the 2000 election, have participated in “Free Iran” gatherings of 2018 in Paris and 2019 in Ashraf 3, home to 3000 members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
“Not just the rights, but the lives of Iran’s citizens are being sacrificed for the empowerment of a dysfunctional and rapacious theocracy,” the U.S. dignitaries write in their letter. “Just as it did in suppressing with lethal force innocent citizens expressing political dissent in 1981, 1988, 1999 and 2009, the regime has answered the country-wide demonstrations and protests that have taken place since December 2017 with bullets and prison cells. Every act of defiance and protest is a courageous call for liberty, and a rebuke to an illegitimate and isolated regime.”
The signatories of the letter underlined that the NCRI is the “organization that has done more than any other entity, including governments, to free Iranian citizens from tyranny and the world from fundamentalist-inspired terrorism” and added that it “strives relentlessly to ensure that hope for democracy and an end to injustice remains alive in Iran.”
The signatories of the letter are:
