The books also shed light on Tehran’s repressive rule and human rights violations at home, including the 1988 massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners
WASHINGTON, DC, USA, April 4, 2023 — The U.S. Representative Office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI-US) has released a video clip showcasing its contributions towards exposing the Iranian regime’s nuclear, missile, and terrorism agenda. The NCRI-US has been working to shed light on the regime’s repressive rule, malign conduct abroad, and human rights violations at home, including the 1988 massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners.
Since 2014, the NCRI-US has published nearly 30 books on Iran’s uprisings, the regime’s repressive rule, and destabilizing conduct abroad. These publications provide detailed insights into the regime’s nuclear weapons program, missile program, deployment of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), formation of terror units using proxies in the region, and employment of terrorism as the central element of its foreign policy.
The video clip released by the NCRI-US highlights its significant contribution to exposing the Iranian regime’s agenda and the ongoing efforts to bring democratic change to Iran. The NCRI-US’s publications have raised awareness about the regime’s human rights violations, its efforts to acquire nuclear weapons, and its use of proxies to destabilize the region.
NCRI-US…contributed to the effort to improve the lives of the people of Iran and also to make the region and the world…safer from the threats represented by the current regime in Tehran.The Honorable Joseph Lieberman, former Senator from Connecticut
The NCRI-US’s advocacy for democratic change in Iran has garnered widespread support from policymakers, legislators, human rights activists, and Iranian expatriates.
The NCRI-US’s publications provide invaluable insights into the regime’s activities and the need for democratic change for a republic of Iran based on the separation of religion and state.
The release of this video clip comes on the 200th day of the Iranian people’s protests with popular chants of “Down with the Oppressor; Be it the Shah or the [Supreme] Leader,” from Kurdistan to Sistan and Baluchestan and from the capital Tehran to major universities all across Iran against the regime, seeking an end to any forms of dictatorship.
NCRI-US calls on policymakers and governments worldwide to recognize the Iranian people’s legitimate demands and hold the regime accountable for its human rights violations, nuclear weapons program, and state-sponsored terrorism.
The NCRI-US has been a leading voice in exposing the Iranian regime’s nefarious activities and advocating for democratic change in Iran. The democratic opposition coalition NCRI was founded in Tehran in July 1981, as an alternative to the clerical regime, with the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) as its principal member. The MEK is Iran’s largest and most organized opposition group, with Resistance Units operating across Iran.
