US Senate Hosts Exhibition Honoring Women and Girls Who Lost Their Lives in the Iran Uprising.
On April 12, 2023, the US Senate hosted a photo exhibition in honor of the martyrs of the Iranian people’s uprising.
The exhibition featured photographs of women and girls who lost their lives during the democratic revolution in Iran and was attended by advisors to senators and staff from various professional committees.
Notable speakers at the event included Ms. Shirin Nariman, a former political prisoner who supports the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), Dr. Zahra Sadeghpour, a family member of a martyr and a former PMOI/MEK political prisoner, and Ms. Batul Zamani, the head of the Iranian community in Georgia.
Ms. Batul Zamani expressed her appreciation to the senators for supporting the Iranian people’s uprising and providing a venue to exhibit the martyrs’ photos.
She emphasized that the exhibition sends a powerful message that not only has the regime failed to silence those who revolt against it, but the US Senate also honors the memory and names of the martyrs.
Ms. Nariman reflected on the ongoing revolution, which resulted from more than four decades of resistance by thousands of Mojahedin and freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives to reject the mullahs’ oppressive regime.
She expressed pride in seeing that the voices and messages of girls and young people from the Iranian uprising have now reached the US Senate.
Dr. Sadeghpour expressed her pride in seeing how the blood of her brothers and sisters, who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of Iran, now flows in the determination of the defiant youths.
She emphasized that the main goal of the youths is the freedom and prosperity of Iran.
The exhibition in the US Senate was a powerful testimony to the courage and resilience of those who fought for a better future in Iran. It reflects the same voice of the Iranian people who continue to resist and fight for a better future despite the regime’s efforts to silence them. The memory of the martyrs will always remain alive.
