June 18, 2018 - Leader of the Christian Democratic Party in Norway and two senior members of this country’s parliament have expressed their support and solidarity with the upcoming Iranian opposition convention scheduled for June 30th in Paris.

This rally now enjoys the support of a large number of MPs, political figures and social/religious dignitaries from across the globe, voicing their backing of the Iranian people’s call for regime change and the opposition campaign led by the parliament-in-exile National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).


Norwegian MP Os Hilde Brun Gundersen

“I would like to use this opportunity to express wishes of success for you in your Paris convention. This is an important struggle to safeguard democracy across the globe. I wish you success in your endeavors.”


Christian Democratic Party Leader Knut Arild Hareide

“I am very happy about what you are doing for a free Iran with democratic and just values. We know the Iranian regime, a religious regime that unfortunately uses violence and ruthlessness in its approach to the people and their democratic rights.

“What you do is very important for the people who are currently living in Iran, where human rights are ruthlessly violated.”


Geer Jorgen Bekeke, Second Deputy Chair of Family & Culture Commission – Norwegian Parliament

“I’m a politician from the Christian Democratic Party in the Norwegian Parliament. I am fully aware of the work and effort the resistance movement places into establishing democracy in Iran. Iran is a country where the mullahs, who restrict freedoms, are in power. As a result I fully recognize what you do to establish freedom and democracy for Iran and its people.

“I wish you the best for your Paris convention. I hope this congress will bring many commitments and you to continue your struggle for a democratic Iran.”

Iranian convention statement

In circumstances that protests across Iran – continuing after the Dec/Jan uprising – are rattling the very pillars of the Iranian regime, and political developments in the Middle East and throughout the globe are placing further pressure on Tehran’s mullahs, Iranian exiles from across the globe are gathering in Paris once again for the annual Iranian Resistance convention.


Continuing its struggle for a free during the past 15 years, the Iranian Resistances seeks to establish a free Iran without any crackdown, torture or execution; based on the separation of church and state where the mullahs’ current rule is replaced by a democratic system based on the ballot box; establishing a non-nuclear Iran, becoming the epicenter of peace and friendship in the Middle East and the world over; the country’s God-given wealth not being wasted on warmongering, but to provide the population’s welfare; and a country in which equality, social justice, progress and protecting the environment will all be realized.


Certain is the fact that the Iranian regime is facing enormous obstacles and challenges both inside the country and on the global stage.


The international community is finally beginning to realize that the appeasement policy must be set aside. Freedom and democracy must be established in Iran, following regime change, in order to obtain peace and tranquility in the region.


Three principles are now proven more than ever before:

- Regime change in Iran is a dire necessity

- Regime change in Iran is at hand

- There is a viable alternative for the Iranian regime


The Dec/Jan uprising has proven that the Iranian people want this regime gone and senior official in Tehran are acknowledging this undeniable reality.


As seen most recently in Kazerun, the Iranian regime has neither the will nor the capacity to provide for the Iranian people’s rightful demands.


After nearly 40 years in power, the time has come for this regime to be set aside.
