On Thursday, 23 February 2023, the Rt. Hon. David Jones MP, former Minister for Wales and Brexit, and President of the British Committee for Iran Freedom, and Bob Blackman MP, visited Ashraf 3 in Albania, and held talks with Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) for the transfer of sovereignty to the people of Iran.
Cross-party MPs and Peers discussed the continuation of popular protests in Iran, their impact on the future of the country and possible UK policy response to these developments at a conference in the UK Parliament on Wednesday, 22 February.
The conference concluded that the ongoing uprising entering its sixth month despite a violent crackdown and mass arrests by the authorities shows that Iran is on the brink of a new revolution.
Saturday, 11 February, marks the anniversary of the anti-monarchy revolution in Iran in 1979. What millions of Iranians had hoped would be the beginning of a democratic change and progress in their country soon became a nightmare as the mullahs stole the popular democratic revolution by usurping power and imposing a religious dictatorship on the people.
Conservative parliamentarians today discussed the current situation in Iran and its democratic future at a conference in Parliament with members of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the Anglo-Iranian community.
