Led by Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) on the anniversary of Iran’s 1979 “anti-dictatorial” revolution, House lawmakers introduced a broad bipartisan resolution in support of a free, democratic, secular, and non-nuclear republic in Iran, with over 160 cosponsors.
During a press conference honoring the introduction of H. Res. 100 on Wednesday, Congressman McClintock said it “expresses our united support for the Iranian people in their struggle for a democratic, secular, and nonnuclear Republic of Iran” while condemning the “violations of human rights and the state-sponsored terrorism” of the Islamic regime.
He described the “passion for freedom” of the Iranian people as “an inspiration to all who know them.”
“Their commitment to liberating Iran is what brings us here today,” he said, adding that “without these freedom fighters both here, around the world, and most importantly, within Iran, this growing, resolute and determined resistance movement would not be possible.”
