Speech at the plenary session in the debate on the death of Mahsa Amini and the repression of women’s rights protesters in Iran
Mister President, five hundred, eight hundred, three thousand deaths or more: we know, unfortunately, that you, the Pasdaran and the other basijis will not count them in order to keep your power. The Supreme Guide, your leader, has encouraged you to do so. This popular revolt, this revolt of women defending women and freedom can probably be crushed by your weapons and your cynicism. But watch out! Beware you profiteers and defenders of this regime!
Because remember, remember the crowds gathered by the 1997 presidential election when your people were able to vote for a candidate of change.
Remember the months of revolt against the fraudulent re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2009.
Remember the protests of 2019 and 2020, remember the 8 million signatures against the executions of political prisoners.
Remember and you will see that Iranian anger continues to grow against your dictatorship of bloodthirsty incompetents.
Remember and you will see your end approaching.
