LONDON: Iranian opposition groups protested outside the Council of the European Union in Brussels on Saturday against the regime in Tehran. The protests mark the upcoming anniversary of protests in 1981, when the People's Mujahedin of Iran demonstrated against the impeachment of the then president Abolhassan Banisadr. Several European politicians, including the former Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi and the former Vice President of the European Parliament Alejo Vidal-Quadras, gave speeches at the protest in support of the Iranian opposition. The President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran Maryam Rajavi called on the "EU to designate the mullahs' Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and their Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) as terrorist entities." She also said that the Iranian "regime's mercenaries must be tried, punished and expelled." Rajavi also saluted "supporters of the Iranian people's Resistance, and the Human Rights advocates who have come from various European and Arab countries."
