The demonstrators listened to the message by Mr. Massoud Rajavi, President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, released today addressed to students in Iran.
In his message, Mr. Rajavi emphasized that according to the evaluations of the NCR, the present stage is the phase of the clerical regime's overthrow. As it was declared in the NCR's resolution in April, the activation of "the social base of the organized resistance movement... in conjunction with the NCR, has sounded the death knells for the mullahsÕ regime and terrified the ruling." Mr. Rajavi called on all democrat Iranians to support the students.
Supporters of the Iranian Resistance and Mojahedin also vehemently condemned the blatant threat made on Sunday by Khatami's Supreme Security Council to crack down on unauthorized demonstrations. They deplored Khatami's complicity with Khatami to cover up the regime's dreadful crime in attacking the students' hostels in north Tehran.
Iranian demonstrators called on all governments and parliaments as well as international human rights organizations to condemn the crackdown of students in Iran and urged them to immediately dispatch an international fact-finding mission to Iran.
Yesterday, Iranians staged demonstrations in 29 cities to declare support for the students' uprising in Iran.
