Their protest is, why don’t you support? that we are dying with our empty hands from morning to night, bullets are hitting the brains of young people. We will not pledge our real independence and freedom to any policy, but we will know the basis of our cooperation and desire, and especially in these critical stages, the difference between those who helped us and those who turned their backs on us.
This is a calculation that foreign countries must do. Interference in the protection of human rights is obligatory. Otherwise, the International Criminal Court would not have been created. We expect action from the world. We did not ask the world to appoint a government for us or to support a particular group or person. We say that Iranian people have the right to choose their future in the democratic process and the world should support this. Our people’s request should be supported in any way they can. “Support by intervention is very clear.”
