NCRI - The perpetrators of the 1988 massacre of some 30,000 political prisoners in Iran will soon be held accountable for their crimes against the Iranian people, United States Congressman Ted Poe has told the Iranian Resistance’s ‘Free Iran’ rally in Paris.
Addressing tens of thousands of supporters of the Iranian Resistance on July 1, the Republican Congressman from Texas said:
“Thirty years ago …the government, Khomeini, murdered 30,000 people that year because they were political dissidents. They wanted a regime change. Thirty thousand. And here we are almost 30 years later. It’s time to have a day of reckoning for those people that were murdered. And it is the responsibility of you young people over here to avenge the murder of those people, your families, 30 years ago. So I say to you, you daughters of democracy, you sons of liberty, do not give up. Do not despair. Because on the horizon, the sun is rising for a new Iran. And as the sun rises it gets brighter and brighter, because hope is brighter for that feeling and thought and belief of freedom. Freedom in Iran.”READ MORE
