This is a message from Ali, the voice of democracy, the man from Iran, the Middle East and the United States of America (USA).

This week, Iranians for Democracy is pleased to announce we are about to be blessed with the presence of grace, a true mother of the democracy movement of Iran, a woman that decided at a young age to join in her mothers philosophy and follow the dreams of leading the women of Iran to the freedom of equal rights. This woman, who is a shining star for democracy, she is the voice of equal rights for all Iranian women, and women all over the world. She is a poet, a writer, a scholar, a teacher, and a true tiger. She is none other than my Aunt Simin. We are all welcoming her from Iran to the USA, where she is going to be a guest speaker on behalf of The Iranian Mothers for Freedom. As she will pass on the message of hope like she has done for many years, with inspiring messages. She is the voice of the democracy movement in Iran. My Aunt Simin has been imprisoned, beaten, and tortured by the Iranian government for her views and her way of life. She stands for free elections, free press, freedom of choice, and for everyone, including women, to be able to walk, talk, and achieve their dreams. My Aunt Simin said to me “Ali my nephew, in these times of hardship we all must join together and let the voice of freedom be heard. Let the Iranian people know that I will give my last words to see my country free, my people to live in peace, my children and my grandchildren to know in life you must not be afraid, or selfish, and you must go for the mission in life when it is your time.” I want to say God Bless my Aunt and I hope I can carry the torch of democracy with you in the streets of Iran soon. Let the happiness take you wherever you need to go in life. You are a true tiger, a spirit of the people from the past and the future. Long live the voices of the Iranian Mothers for Freedom in US and the world.

Remember, we can do this together, one person at a time, one vote at a time, one country at a time.
