Maryam Rajavi addressed her greeting at Nowruz celebration, the Iranian New Year, which was held at Tirana Albania with PMOI members and guests from Albania, France and United States:

Congratulations on Nowruz, the blossoming of spring and the beginning of the year 1396!

Greetings to each and every one of you freedom fighters who have established the Third Ashraf contrary to the wishes of the Velayat-e Faqih regime!

I would also like to extend my greetings from here to my dear countrymen for the beginning of the New Year.

I congratulate you, Iranian Kurds, Baluchis, Arabs and Azeris, all the colorful flowers of Iran's garden. I greet my compatriots around the world who can hear my voice. Congratulations on Nowruz and the beginning of 1396!

May this year's celebration harbinger the defeat of Velayat-e Faqih who has enchained Iran! May this Nowruz mark the advent of the spring of freedom and national sovereignty in Iran!

May the end of winter this year harbinger the defeat of the mullahs' belligerence and aggression in the region, and I particularly wish for the liberation of the people of Syria from the clutches of this brutal regime.

Last year was an auspicious one when the men and women of Ashraf, those who will bring spring to their nation, broke out of long years of siege and successfully accomplished their big campaign for the safe and secure collective relocation of their organization. 

For 14 years, we were not together in the Nowruz celebration. Those were the years of siege and consecutive attacks, the years of the shameless terrorist designation of the PMOI/MEK and many other spurious cases against them, the years of appeasement.

MESSAGE OF MARYAM RAJAVI TO A MEETING AT THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES- FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AND DEMOCRACY IN IRAN- 9 MARCH 2017



Message of Maryam Rajavi to a meeting at the U.S. House of Representatives- for Human rights and Democracy in Iran- 9 March 2017
Honorable lawmakers and dear friends,
With the arrival of spring, Iranians are preparing to celebrate Nowruz, the Persian New Year, which marks the first day of the Iranian calendar year.
Nowruz has been celebrated for decades and symbolizes change; change from the gray, gloomy days of winter to the promising green days of spring.
For Iranians, Nowruz has a simple but significant message:
The springtime of freedom is inevitable.
It may be delayed, but it cannot be stopped.
For the people of Iran, Nowruz brings a new hopeful prospect:
The certain end of religious dictatorship and rule of freedom and democracy.
Our suppressed people deserve to live in a free and democratic society, which is key to peace and stability in the region.
It is the only way of uprooting Islamic fundamentalism as a global threat.
Events in Iran over the past year are signs of critical developments in the coming year.
Conservative estimates show more than 3,000 executions during Hassan Rouhani’s term and yet widespread crackdown on the rise.
Yet, the Iranian people have risen up in different cities to protest the regime’s suppression.
They rallied against censorship, poverty and widespread government corruption.
They took to the streets in thousands of large and small demonstrations to protest that even their most basic demands are not met.
The most recent example is the uprising of last month by thousands of our brave countrymen and women in Ahvaz.
The death of Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani seriously weakened the regime.
For 38 years, Rafsanjani was the regime’s number-two man and was critical to its internal balance.
In addition, the windfall money from the lifting of sanctions did not relieve living conditions.
