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
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
