PARIS, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tens of thousands of Iranians will gather outside Paris on June 22, 2013, to commemorate the 33rd anniversary of the 1981 rally in Tehran, when a half million Iranians joined together in opposition to the Khomeini regime and to voice support for real freedom and democracy.
For 33 years Iran has suffered under the heel of the mullah's dictatorship. This June's presidential election will be another disgraceful sham. The elimination of Akbar Rafsanjani as a candidate in the clerical regime's election masquerade, once again displays the fact that the regime is at the end of the line and in deep crisis.
As in the past, Iranians want real democracy and real freedom. This year is the time for Iranians to vote for regime change.
The Grand Annual Gathering sponsored by parliamentarian committees around the world will host numerous dignitaries to discuss Iran's election charade and Iraq's shameful treatment of the People's Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI) at Camp Liberty, freedom-loving Iranians who oppose the mullah's oppressive regime.
Among the speakers scheduled to date for the event are:
- General James Jones, National Security Advisor of President Obama (2009-10).
- Rudy Giuliani, Mayor of New York City (1994-2001), and U.S. presidential candidate.
- Newt Gingrich, Speaker of the House of Representatives (1995-99) and U.S. presidential candidate.

- Ingrid Betancourt, member of the Colombian Senate (1998-02) and presidential candidate
- Rita Sussmuch, President of German Bundestag (1988-98)
- Patrick Kennedy, Member of Congress (1995-2011)
- Michele Alliot-Marie, French Minister of Interior, of Foreign Affairs, of Defense, and of Justice (2002-10)
