Message of solidarity to the IWD 2017 gathering, "Women in Political Leadership"
I am Maria Candida Almeida, one of the deputy Attorney Generals of Portugal and I am currently working at Supreme Court.
I am deeply sorry for not being able to be there with you in such an important and historic meeting that is taking place in a country that has taken the great responsibility of giving back the human dignity to our brothers and sisters who suffered so much in Camp Liberty.
Believe me when I say I am with you in spirit, sharing with you the hope of democracy, equality and freedom for your people.
Mrs. Rajavi is a great and strong leader. I believe with her strength and courage, (she) will lead you to victory over the misogynist regime (which has) no respect for human rights.
I am with you in our struggle for human dignity, human rights and equality.
