NCRI – A memorial was held Thursday afternoon at the NCRI’s headquarters in Auvers-sur-Oise for Neda Agha-Soltan, a young woman who was killed on June 20 by agents of the religious fascism ruling Iran. Iranians living in France and French people joined members and officials of the NCRI in the service. 

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, said: “Close to 200 people of this brave, devoted, and determined generation have lost their lives to the bullets and daggers of Khamenei's criminals and thousands more have been wounded or arrested”.

Addressing the international community, Mrs. Rajavi said: “Let me ask governments who are not willing to give up appeasement of the murderous rulers [in Iran] even as young Iranians are being brutally killed in the streets – those who regard negotiations with this regime as their strategy – how much more blood must be shed in the streets and torture chambers for your conscience to awaken?”

“The Iranian people and Resistance will force them to abandon this backward policy”, she added.

Mrs. Rajavi offered an assessment of the present situation and prospect of developments, adding: “The tide is turning against the mullahs’ regime, and it will not turn back because the brave women and youths of Iran, who have come to the streets, will not rest until they gain their freedom”.

Anisseh Boumedienne, former Algerian First Lady; Sid Ahmad Ghozali, former Algerian Prime Minister; Alain Vivien, former French Minister of State for Foreign Affairs; Yves Bonnet, former French MP and head of the domestic secret service; the mayor of Auvers-sur-Oise Jean-Pierre Béquet, and a number of other French dignitaries attended the service to pay their respects to the martyrs of the Iranian people’s uprising. They supported Mrs. Rajavi’s call for the mullahs’ Presidential election result to be annulled, free elections to be held under the UN supervision, and the dossier on the regime’s crimes to be sent before the UN Security Council.

At Mrs. Rajavi’s invitation, in addition to the service in Auvers-sur-Oise, memorials were held for Neda in 53 locations across the world. Participants in these memorials also supported the call by the Iranian Resistance for the annulment of mullahs’ sham election and free elections under the UN supervision.
