Other participants include:
Iranian communities from New York, Massachusetts, northern & southern California, Wisconsin, Tennessee and Texas.
In response, the regime in #Iran has designated UANI as a terrorist organization for cooperating with the PMOI/MEK.
Event organizer Amb. Mark Wallace launched the conference by calling for a minute of silence in solidarity with all those persecuted by the regime in #Iran.
Keynote speaker Mayor Rudy Giuliani:
#Iran is the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism. If you give a dollar to Iran, you're paying half of that to a terrorist. It is about time for (Europe) to stop that.
-If Europe joins the U.S. in imposing sanctions against the regime in #Iran, the mullahs' will be gone.
-Iran's regime intended to bomb two 2018 gatherings in which I & many other dignitaries attended in Albania & Paris.
The fact that #Iran's regime sends a diplomat to blow up an opposition gathering shows how desperate they are.
The U.S. media doesn't cover this subject. We are here to change that.
France seeks to provide money & do business with #Iran's regime, despite the mullahs' human rights violations & support for terrorism. Ethnic & religious minorities are singled out & treated as non-citizens.
The mullahs seek to eliminate the Bahaii minority group.
The time has come for the complete abolishing of the IRGC. President Trump stands up to #Iran's regime. We don't have President Obama anymore giving them billions of dollars in cash.
In #Iran, ethnic & religious minorities are singled out and are being eliminated. The Sunnis, Bahai's, Kurds, Baluchis, Arab-Iranians & others.
This is what Hitler was doing and it must end.
-All signs indicate the regime in #Iran has reached its final phase.
-Iran's people are saying to the regime, "Leave Syria; Think about us."
-The regime considers Syria as its own province.
-Khamenei says the regime does not recognize geographical borders.
-The measures of #Iran's regime are a sign of its weakness, not strength.
-If the regime stops its support for terrorism, it would accelerate its downfall.
-Khamenei: If we don't fight in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon & Yemen, we would have to fight inside Iran.
-The mullahs are calculating that they would not have to pay the price for their aggression before the 2020 U.S. presidential elections. When they saw no action to their belligerence, they attacked Saudi Arabian oil facilities.
@Maryam_Rajavi: Iran's regime only understands a language of strength & firmness. The solution lies in regime change by the Iranian people & their organized resistance movement.
Two years ago, the regime evaluated that 96% of the population is against them.
Rouhani acknowledged in 2017 the regime has executed & imprisoned the Iranian people for 38 years.
The regime's massacres against all of the Iranian people, including religious & ethnic minorities, cannot be forgotten.
This regime bombed the house of God in Mecca.
-The IRGC, Quds Force, Min. of Intelligence should be included in the UN terrorist list.
-For peace & democracy, we all in need an int'l coalition against the regime in #Iran.
-The NCRI seeks a free, secular & democratic Iran with equality for all its people.
Let us be very clear that the shortage of medicine has nothing to with sanctions. It has all to do with the mullahs' regime & the IRGC. They ship the medication & medical supplies to Syria, Iraq & Yemen. This regime is riddled with corruption.
We only need one day of voting in Iran to show who the Iranian people love. We can & we must bring about regime change in Iran by the Iranian people.
We have shown the world that we can come together & reject this regime, as the people rejected the Shah.
We will not let this regime colonize us any longer!
We are Iranians first & we want this regime together. We seek territorial integrity for #Iran.
All Iran ethnic groups have come together under the MEK flag & fighting against this regime.
The future of #Iran's youth will be in high quality education. Iran's scientific community can focus on human advancement of technology & reverse the damages done under the mullahs' regime.
No more WMDs & we stand for a non-nuclear Iran.
No more terrorism.
For too long, #Iran regime apologists/lobbyists have worked to divide us through lies & disinformation campaign, & the echo chamber against the MEK & the NCRI.
We need to be entirely focused on the threat of the Iranian regime.
