Freedom for Iran!

“Where liberty is, there is my country”

Benjamin Franklin

The people of Iran are obviously not happy with its current government, and they protest. The Iranian government has in response arrested, tortured, raped and killed protesters in order to scare the population.

I categorically protest against this unlawful, inhuman and debasing treatment of Iranian citizens. I fully align with the position of the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy saying that the Iranians “deserve better”.

Only 20 years ago my own country was on the brink of a transformation. Bulgaria was a grim place where the oppressive regime had a tight grip on each and every citizen, instilling fear and mistrust. Even today there are still people in Bulgaria dreaming of a “strong hand” in government. That is why I know how precious and fragile democracy is.
