More than 140 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have joined a resolution that condemns the Iranian regime’s violence and calls for the protection of Iranian dissidents.
Highlights of the Resolution

The resolution was introduced by Texas Republican Rep. Randy Weber and has been signed by 145 members of Congress.
It highlights the weaknesses of the Iranian regime and calls for the protection of Iranian dissidents who have been targeted by the regime.
The resolution does not call for U.S. military support, but rather focuses on helping Iranian citizens who are calling for regime change through protection and recognition of their rights.
It supports the 10-point plan of Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, to establish a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear Republic of Iran.

Reaction from Lawmakers and Dissidents
