Statement of Support for the Resistance of Iranian Women

As we approach the first anniversary of the Iranian people’s uprising
for freedom, we, the undersigned, express our solidarity and support for
the uprising of the Iranian people, especially women.

On September 16, 2022, a nationwide uprising erupted, with women and
girls pioneering this revolt. Of the 750 individuals tragically killed
by the regime’s repressive forces, a significant number were young women
and girls. As a result of the regime’s brutal suppression, at least 70
children lost their lives.

The demand of the Iranian people, both women and men, crystallized in
their slogans, is to end the religious dictatorship and establish a
democratic republic based on the separation of religion and state and
complete gender equality.

In the face of the brutality and savagery of the clerical regime, the
world observed the courage and audacity of Iranian women and girls
during the uprising. They defied the regime’s oppressive forces,
especially the Revolutionary Guards and the Basij, risking their lives
with bare hands, and chanted, “whether veiled or unveiled, we are
heading towards the revolution.”

The courage and prominence of women in this struggle did not
spontaneously materialize. Rather, it is firmly rooted in a century of
Iranian women’s resistance against two distinct forms of tyranny:
monarchical and religious dictatorships. Misogyny is a distinct feature
and one of the pillars of the system of velayat-e faqih (absolute
clerical rule). The people, especially the youths and women of Iran, are
determined to end this medieval dictatorship.

Now, as the ruling mullahs in Iran have once again launched oppressive
Guidance patrols in the streets to suppress women and prevent the
re-ignition of the uprising, and as the religious tyranny has stepped up
executions to continue its rule,

We, the undersigned, express our solidarity with 3600 parliamentarians
worldwide and 123 former presidents and prime ministers, who voiced
support for Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National
Council of Resistance of Iran, and her Ten-point Plan for a free,
democratic republic and gender equality in all spheres, most notably the
right of women to freely choose their attire.

We ask the international community to stand with the brave women and
people of Iran, place the oppressive and criminal Revolutionary Guards
on the terrorist list, and take decisive steps to hold the leaders of
the regime accountable for their crimes.
