Maryam Rajavi

In a grand gathering on the occasion of the Persian New Year, the Iranian Resistance's President-elect Maryam Rajavi congratulated all Iranians in Iran and abroad. She wished that the New Year would be the year of breaking the chains of the Velayat-e Faqih regime, the looming of the spring of freedom and national sovereignty, the failure of the mullahs' belligerence in the region, and the year of emancipation of the defenseless people of Syria from the clutches of that brutal regime.
