James Bezan MP from Canada supports ‘Free Iran’ gathering


NCRI – Canadian lawmaker James Bezan has sent a message of solidarity to the upcoming “Free Iran” gathering in Paris to show his support for a free and democratic Iran that will ultimately respect human rights and civil liberties.

James Bezan, a member of the Canada’s House of Commons, said: “I want to send my greetings to everybody that is planning on attending the gathering of the People’s Mojahedin (PMOI or MEK) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).”

He added: “This is a very important time for everyone to come together and show their support for the NCRI and also to condemn the continued human rights violations of the Iranian regime. President Rouhani and Ayatollah Khamenei continue to violate the international norms of the rule of law and respecting the civil liberties of their people.”

“I also want to ensure that all of us continue to stand up against Iran’s continued oppression of political activists by imprisoning them, by condemning their actions against those practicing their freedom of religion and also Iran’s continued interference in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen by undermining UN security forces as well as coalition partners who are in the fight against ISIS and the atrocities being committed by the Assad regime in Syria.”

“I plead with everyone to continue to work towards the safety and security of those who are living at Camp Liberty outside of Baghdad, and also plead upon the government of Iraq and the US and the UN to ensure that their safety is first and foremost during these very tenuous times in the battle against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.”

“And finally, I just want to confirm my support for Mrs. [Maryam] Rajavi’s ten point plan and ask the United Nations, the European Union, and the United States and other allies, to stand with the NCRI, the PMOI and really take this positive position that will ultimately bring peace and security to the region and democracy in Iran itself. Again, please join everyone as the gathering in Paris, for the gathering and showing their support for a free, democratic Iran that will ultimately respect human rights and civil liberties,” he added.

The major gathering of Iranians and their international supporters in Paris on July 9, which will be attended by hundreds of senior political dignitaries, parliamentarians, human rights and women’s rights activists and religious leaders from the United States, Europe, and Islamic countries, will bring together international support for the cause of democracy and freedom in Iran.
