Thousands of Europe-based Iranians, including relatives of victims of repression in the Islamic republic, lawmakers, and campaigners, have urged the European Union at a rally in Paris to list Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) as a “terror” group.

The rally came as Iran marked 44 years since the Islamic Revolution that ousted the shah, with pro-regime rallies inside the Middle Eastern nation.
