The statement of the majority of Scottish parliamentarians in support of the 10-point Maryam Rajavi


The statement of the majority of Scottish parliamentarians in support of the 10-point program of the elected president of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, and the desire of the Iranian people for a democratic republic. The majority of Scotland's representatives (82 members out of 129 members) from all parties, including 10 of the current ministers, emphasized that the people of Iran have made it clear with their slogans during their national uprising that all forms of dictatorship, whether the deposed king or the ruling religious tyranny, and any connection with these two dictatorships reject.


Members of the Scottish Parliament strongly condemned the repression of protesters, which led to the killing of more than 700 demonstrators and the arrest of more than 30,000 people, and demanded an immediate stop to the killing.

The majority of the Scottish Parliament declared: the 10-point program of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, which was announced two decades ago, is the same values ​​that we defend in democratic countries.


Statement of the majority of Scottish parliamentarians We believe that it is the people of Iran who should decide about their future. However, we recognize the fact that during the past 4 decades, the democratic coalition of the National Council of Resistance has followed the democratic change in Iran and has informed the world, especially the legislators of Western countries, about the dangers of this regime in the field of nuclear, terrorism and human rights.

The Scottish Parliament's majority statement calls on the international community to stand by the Iranian people in their efforts to change and take decisive steps against the ruling regime, including blacklisting the Revolutionary Guards and holding regime officials accountable for crimes against humanity.



Iran's statement 2023

Supporting the Iranian people in their struggle for a democratic republic based on the separation of religion and government

Since six months ago, Iran has seen a massive popular uprising demanding freedom and democracy. More than 750 protesters have been killed and 30,000 people have been arrested. While any change must be made by the Iranian people and their resistance, the international community has its own responsibility.

In solidarity with the people of Iran, we stand by their demand for a democratic republic based on the separation of religion and government, in which no person, regardless of religion or family relationship, has any privileges over others. Iranian people are united around these democratic values. With their slogans, they have made it clear that they reject all forms of dictatorship, including the deposed king or the ruling religious regime, and any connection with any of these two dictatorships.


We believe that it is the people of Iran who should decide about their future. However, we recognize the fact that during the past 4 decades, the democratic coalition of the National Council of Resistance of Iran has followed the democratic change in Iran and has informed the world, especially the legislators of Western countries, about the dangers of this regime in the field of nuclear, terrorism and human rights. In this regard, we believe that the 10-point program of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President (elect) of the National Council of Resistance, which was announced 2 decades ago, deserves our support. This program defends free elections, freedom of speech and assembly, abolition of the death penalty, equality between men and women, separation of religion and government, autonomy of Iranian nationalities and a non-nuclear Iran, i.e. the same values ​​that we defend in democratic countries.


The brave uprising of the Iranian people should be considered on the one hand as a result of the explosive state of the society due to repression, poverty, discrimination and government corruption, and on the other hand as a result of 4 decades of nationwide organized resistance. Only in 1367, more than 30,000 political prisoners were brutally massacred, the vast majority of whom were from the Mojahedin organization.

We condemn the continuation of the regime's warmongering in the region as well as in Europe, including its terrorist and cyber activities in Albania.


We ask the international community to stand by the Iranian people in their efforts to change and take decisive steps against the ruling regime. This includes blacklisting the IRGC and holding regime officials accountable for their crimes against humanity.
