Iran, June 16, 2019 - The large rally held by supporters of the Iranian opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) in Brussels on Saturday received widespread media coverage.

Radio France International posted a report of the Brussels demonstration emphasizing how the protesters called for democratic change in Iran and firm support from leaders of the international community. PMOI/MEK spokesperson Shahin Ghobadi said, “We want to support the Iranian people in their struggle to establish democracy.”

Sen. Ingrid Betancourt, former Colombian presidential candidate, also attended this PMOI/MEK rally.

“What is dangerous is not opposing the mullahs’ regime. In fact, it is dangerous to continue kneeling before Tehran. What is immoral and dangerous is choosing to not take any measures due to fear of the consequences, and thus facing this regime’s immoral responses,” she emphasized.

The protesters said the Brussels march is the beginning of a series of anti-regime rallies targeting the mullahs ruling Iran. Cities across the globe, including Washington, Berlin, Stockholm and London are to hold similar demonstrations.

Al Arabiya TV: Thousands of Iranians rallied in Brussels at the invitation of the PMOI/MEK to call for regime change in Iran. The participants voiced their support for the protests and uprising inside Iran and seek the recognition of the Iranian people’s right to topple the mullahs’ regime. The Brussels rally participants chanted a series of slogans, demanding an end to the regime’s domestic crackdown and its support for regional/global terrorism.

This demonstration has been held as popular protests continue inside Iran, and following the terrorist designation of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), oil sanctions and an ongoing confrontation between the U.S. and Iran over the mullahs’ support for terrorism across the Middle East and beyond.

The Iranian opposition rallied outside the European Union Council in Brussels, holding a demonstration against the mullahs’ regime in Iran. A number of European politicians, including former Italian foreign minister Giulio Terzi and former European Parliament vice president Dr. Alejo Vidal Quadras participated and delivered speeches in support of the Iranian opposition.

NCRI President Maryam Rajavi called on the European Union to designate Iran’s IRGC and the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) as terrorist organizations.

“Iran’s operatives must face justice in a court of law, be punished and expelled from Europe,” Mrs. Rajavi said.
