Iranian diaspora prepare for annual gathering
By:Heshmat AlaviAs the June 30 deadline approaches for a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian regime’s nuclear program, Iranian people abroad are to show up in their annual grand gathering in the Villepinte Hall in Paris on June 13, 2015.
Maryam Rajavi, president-elect of National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), will be the keynote speaker of this grand gathering. She will talk about the ongoing situation in Iran, Iran’s nuclear activity for procuring atomic bombs, and threat of fundamentalism in the Middle East and its solution.
Sponsors of the gathering expect attendance of over 100,000 people, including international political dignitaries, military officials and former diplomats from the U.S., France, Europe, Canada, and the Middle East. The speakers will discuss the ongoing negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program just two weeks before the June 30 deadline for a final agreement and the growing crises in the Middle East, highlighted by the rise of ISIS and the Iranian regime’s meddling in Yemen.
The attendees will support the Iranian resistance, especially members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) stationed in Camp Liberty, Iraq. They will also endorse Maryam Rajavi’s Ten-Point Plan for freedom and democratic change in Iran.
To date, many international dignitaries from the U.S, Europe and Arab countries have voiced support for this gathering. Arab communities including Syrian and Palestinian people will also take part in this gathering, which will address the tangible threat of fundamentalism and sectarianism that is entangling the Middle East.
Last year, 600 political dignitaries, legislators and jurists from a wide spectrum of political tendencies participated in the gathering alongside with 100,000 Iranian people from four corner of the world.
