Message of Support by Vice-President of European Parliament Human Rights Commission from Spain for Grand Gathering of Iranian Resistance on July 1, 2017Ms. Beatriz Becerra, Vice-President of the European Parliament’s Human Rights Commission, from Spain has sent a message of solidarity and support for the grand gathering of Iranian Resistance held on July 1, 2017.She said in her message:My name is Beartiz Becerra and I am a Spanish member of the European Parliament.I am also the vice-chair of human rights subcommittee in this Parliament. The situation of human rights in Iran is terrible. Iran has the highest number of executions in the world per capita. Top officials in this regime are known to have taken part in mass executions in previous years including the current minister of justice, Pour-Mohammadi, who is in the cabinet of so-called moderate Rouhani.This minister was a member of the “death committee” responsible for execution of over 30,000 political prisoners mostly from the PMOI in the summer of 1988. This regime has not changed over the past decades and we have absolutely no hope for a change in Iran as long as the mullahs are in power.The situation of women is also a grave concern for us as they are regarded as second class citizens and many women activists are now in jail. Despite all of this, I am happy that strong opposition exists inside and outside Iran calling for a regime change.We support the leader of Iranian opposition, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, and her political agenda for a free Iran. I have attended the Iranian opposition gathering in Paris before. The next one is on Saturday July 1st which I hope it will be a great success. Good luck and keep up the good work.
