California Society For Democracy In Iran, House Members Reject Myth Of Rouhani's Moderation, Call For Tougher Sanctions, Urge US To Ensure Safety And Security Of Iranian Dissidents In Iraq And Their Return To Ashraf

ANAHEIM Calif., August 19, 2013  /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hundreds of Iranian Americans in California attended a convention at the Anaheim Convention Center sponsored by California Society for Democracy in Iran, where several former senior US Government officials and sitting members of congress spoke.

Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), Chair, Europe, Eurasia and Emerging Threats Subcommittee; and Judy Chu (D-CA),House Judiciary Committee member; Michael Mukasey, 81 st U.S. Attorney General; James Glassman, former Undersecretary of State for Public Policy and Diplomacy and Public Affairs, Rep. Patrick Kennedy (1995 – 2011); and Col. Wesley Martin, Chief Protection, Anti-terrorism Officer, Coalition Forces, Iraq, addressed the Convention.

In a Congressional Certificate to the Convention's President, Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair, voiced support for a democratic, secular, non-nuclear republic in Iran.

The participants underlined that the Iranian regime's new President Hassan Rouhani has been a senior military and security official in the past 34 years and rejected international calls to halt uranium enrichment.

The participants called for tougher sanctions on Tehran, underscoring that the only solution for the Iran crisis is a regime change by Iranian people and the organized resistance. They expressed support for the 10-point plan articulated by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the Iranian resistance's President-elect.

The event coincided with the 25 th anniversary of the massacre of 30,000 prisoners of conscience in Iran in 1988. Rouhani's Justice Minister was a member of the "death commission," which sent 30,000 victims to the gallows.

The convention urged the Obama administration to uphold the US commitment to safety and security of thousands of Iranian dissidents at Liberty, members of the principal Iranian opposition movement the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK), through returning them to Ashraf, their home of 26 years.
