Reza Pahlavi's Call for Solidarity
With three decades having passed in the life of the current regime in Iran, it has become clear to everyone that this authoritarian government has produced nothing other than lies, oppression, poverty, unemployment, exploitation of national resources and in one word the destruction of political, social, economic, and cultural structures of our country, subjecting our homeland to a deep and fateful crisis. A crisis that obliges all of us to be more apprehensive in the cause to save the country and bring prosperity to our people through opening a path for national reconciliation and helping people to claim their share in their destiny and through providing completely democratic conditions for free, healthy and just elections confirmed by the majority of Iranians.
All my efforts since the birth of this authoritarian regime has been in the direction of consultation and collaboration with my compatriots. The recent changes in Iran has made the current society, in particular the youth, aware and realistic in prioritizing freedom and prosperity of the nation over their own ideological goals, and to care for this ancient land and create a future that such a great nation well deserves to have.
Fortunately, the claims of various layers of the society have changed the conditions in a way that reaching consensus and accord is now more possible than ever.
In these decisive moments facing our homeland, every one of us Iranians has a historic responsibility to get inspired by a non-partisan and non-ideological movement like one big ancient family to pay our debt to our motherland. It is time that based on collaboration, solidarity and high moral values of the Declaration of Human Rights we do everything within our power to re-instate national sovereignty in Iran. In this path, it behooves all political forces and activists to collaborate with each other actively by providing pragmatic and clear suggestions and plans for forming a democratic alternative against the authoritarian regime of the Islamic Republic. Our task today, beyond various political ideals, beliefs and tastes, is to start a final march towards freedom, peace, security, well-being and prosperity of Iran. Me too I'm ready to collaborate with all various groups and forces and support them.
My dear compatriots,
Let's think of a prosperous and free Iran, where the law and justice guarantee all the rights of Iranian citizens. May that in this historic moment we fulfill our responsibility to the current young generation and the ones in the future.
Long Live Iran,
