Iran, September 16, 2019—Supporters of the Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) are scheduling a major “No to Rouhani” demonstration in New York on September 24, 2019, protesting the president of a regime that has the highest executions per capita in the world and is known as the central banker of international terrorism.

At a time when the mullahs’ regime in is resorting to further executions and torture across the country to confront growing unrests, parallel to increasing sanctions and escalating global isolation, while expanding its nuclear blackmail, terrorism and warmongering, the president of this dictatorship has no place in the United Nations for this year’s General Assembly.

Iranian regime president Hassan Rouhani should be sanctioned alongside Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. He should also face an international tribunal for his role in crimes committed by the religious fascism ruling Iran.

The “No to Rouhani” demonstration in New York is a reflection of protests and demands for justice by the Iranian people, and this nation’s will to launch a new uprising with PMOI/MEK Resistance Units leading the way. This strong initiative will be focused on overthrowing the inhumane mullahs’ regime to establish freedom, democracy and popular sovereignty in Iran.

Iranian opposition President Maryam Rajavi, head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said in a speech to a massive June 21 rally in Washington:

…above and beyond anything else, the mullahs are most fearful of change at the hands of the Iranian people, the Iranian Resistance and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK),”

“It is right at this point that it becomes clear that the religious dictatorship is a paper tiger when it comes to facing off with the Iranian Resistance. And its fate is no different from the fate of the Shah’s dictatorship. This is the verdict of history and the yearning of the people of Iran. Yes, freedom will prevail over the Shah and the Sheikh (mullahs).

My fellow citizens,

Dear friends who have defied religious dictatorship and fascism,

The regime is getting weaker by the day, and with every passing day, it gets a step closer to its downfall.

Consequently, all of us bear heavier responsibilities.

This is the time for us to be on alert.

Without doubt, the faltering mullahs’ dictatorship cannot withstand our nation’s resistance, uprisings, and the great Army of Freedom.


Freedom-loving Iranians!

The time has come to rise. In such circumstances, our country Iran needs us to rise to our national duty more than ever before in order to rid our homeland of the hideous mullahs’ regime.


Demonstration in New York

No to Rouhani, No to the representative of the religious fascism

Yes to a free Iran through the effort of Resistance Units and the National Liberation Army

Supporting the NCRI as the democratic alternative and Maryam Rajavi’s ten-point plan
