My fellow Iranians,

Amil Imani

The anniversary of the 18 Tir, the Iranian Students National Uprising, is once again upon us. The 18th of Tir (July 8th) has become a symbolic struggle and resistance against the tyrannical, totalitarian and barbaric regime of the Islamic Republic. Our very brave and courageous freedom lovers have been challenging the very fabric of the foreign occupiers of the Iranian nation. Iranian people have demanded a total annihilation of this Totalitarian State of Islamic Barbarity and Terror, which lacks even the most basic human compassion and human rights.

The Iranian people, after their centuries long struggle which resulted in throwing out many foreign mercenaries, will throw these new and unwanted fundamentalist Islamic thugs right into the 'trash basket' of history very soon.

The flowers of victory will once again blossom and the celebration of life over the celebration of¬ death will begin. But until then, we must struggle against fanaticism with all our strength. We must end poverty, ignorance, disease and the inequality of opportunity. We must pledge our dedication to the service of Iran and her people and to the still larger cause of humanity.

I call upon the honorable people of Iran to stand tall and start to build the noble mansion of a¬ free Iran where all her children may dwell in freedom and equality. Iranian people must become masters of their own destiny.

The events of 18 Tir have created a bitter taste toward the Islamic foreign oppressors. The Persian people have been struggling to obliterate these desperate and opportunistic parasites¬ from their land. This can only happen when we have the full support of all Iranians. This can¬ happen only when we set aside dedicated time and resources for the destruction of this merciless, despotic, alien regime and the establishment of a free, independent sovereign United States of Iran/Persia.

My fellow Persians, A. D. Benoist said, ‚ÄúThe highest measure of democracy is neither the 'extent of freedom' nor the 'extent of equality', but rather the highest measure of participation." ¬ We need you to make time to come out and participate in these gatherings over and over again. ‚ÄúDemocracy is not something you believe in or a place to hang your hat, but it's something you do. You participate. If you stop doing it, democracy crumbles‚ÄĚ, said Abbie Hoffman

In the past, one of the major hurdles to achieving¬ full democracy and the rule of law in Iran, has¬ come from the self-interest of people who have been attempting to plunder the society for their own personal gain. It is the same scenario today. If we desire to achieve freedom and remain free then we¬ need to avoid self-interest and work for our national interest and in the spirit of teamwork.

Human beings cannot create an ideal world of peace and tranquility under totalitarian, ¬  despotic and tyrannical regimes, such as the Islamic Republic in Iran. Individual¬ freedoms would be brutally repressed. The individual would be at the mercy of the merciless, on our case, the clergies¬ of Iran.

Revolutions are successful only when they succeed in replacing a totalitarian state, not creating another oppressing dictatorship. We need to create a government which will secure greater personal freedom and liberty¬ for all Iranians, ¬  a government which moves, decidedly, away from dictatorship and proceeds, confidently, towards democracy.

I believe seeing and hearing of demonstrations such as 18 Tri will give Iranians in Iran, who are unable to demonstrate in their own homeland, a renewed hope in the future¬ and a reason¬  to rejuvenate their motivation. It represents a step forward in our freedom initiative which will break down any barriers of mistrust with our home base.

As we move forward in implementing this important demonstration, we are determined to establish a grass-roots organization which, effectively, monitors and supports the ongoing efforts¬ to find the best way to initiate new¬ freedoms

Behind all events, behind all movements, behind all unrest and all revolutions, there have always been great driving forces. The driving force should be our passion for a larger freedom and liberty and the rule of law in our homeland. For a very long time, Iranians have been struggling against alien rulers and the enemies of self-determination. Because of the lack of social and political freedom, police terrorization and thought control, under the occupation of Islamic terrorists in Iran, have been escalating. ¬ With the selections of the members of Iran's 7th congress, the Islamic occupiers intend to¬ continue this repression and¬ legitimize their evil entity.

My fellow compatriots, once again I call upon all of you to be united with your fellow Iranians in Iran on this day. I ask you to¬ support their¬ aspirations¬ for¬ self-rule and their expectations for an era of peace, freedom, prosperity and independence. This is no longer a choice; it is simply a duty and an obligation as an Iranian.
