“Indeed, the flames of the protests cannot be extinguished and they will continue to soar without respite, indicating a constantly expanding and deepening uprising.
“The thunderous voices of rebellious youths in various cities represent the beating heart of a nation immersed in the euphoria of a free Iran…
“The masquerade of ‘moderation’ designed to preserve the regime has now been unmasked. And the regime in its entirety is drowning in the abyss of internal feuds and bickering…
“Today, the brave youth of Iran have completely dedicated themselves to the task of sustaining the uprising.
“I hail the courageous women of Iran, who are leading the way everywhere. I also hail the young people and members of resistance units, who even while in captivity insist on declaring their PMOI identity, which terrifies the regime.”
