“The point of the spear in the struggle for Iranian freedom are the residents of Ashraf 3 who spend their every waking hour thinking about how to maneuver the Iranian people into a new, prosperous, and free future,” said former U.S. Senator Robert Torricelli during his speech at the Free Iran Global Summit 2020, held online at Ashraf 3, in connection to 30,000 locations in 102 countries.
Ashraf 3 is the home of 3000 members of Iran’s main opposition movement, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), in Albania.
It has become a source of hope and inspiration for thousands of Iranians, protesting in the streets across Iran chanting: “No Shah, No Sheikh (mullahs),” “Down with the principle of velayat-e faqih,” “Death to Khamenei,” and “Death to Rouhani,” and “For 40 years we shed bloodied tears, enough is enough, we’ll take a stand.”
Regarding the powder-keg situation of the Iranian society, Senator Torricelli said every signal from every corner is that the last chapter of the Iranian people’s struggle for freedom is now being written.
Iran’s major protests, new milestone in struggle for freedom
Various Iranian regime officials have acknowledged the MEK’s role and its internal network, known as the Resistance Units, in recent major protests throughout Iran
“In every struggle, we look for milestones. The evidence is overwhelming. It is sometimes captured in single events. You can hear in cities and towns all across Iran today a common message.
Reformers, hard liners, the game is up or simply, the Shah, the mullahs, dictators all, give us our country back. The people are speaking to us. As in the past we had to speak to them, now the voice is theirs across the country,” Senator Torricelli said.
From December 2017 to January 2020, the world witnessed five nationwide uprisings in Iran that underscored the people’s blazing readiness to overthrow the mullahs’ regime.
