Text of Mohsen Makhmalbaf's speech in European Parliament on Wednesday 8 July 2009
Ladies and Gentlemen;
Honourable members of parliament,
I am here - as an Iranian, as an artist and as a representative of the protestors who are being killed in Iran for the sake of democracy - to ask you the following questions:
"If the passengers of an aircraft were taken hostage by a hijacker, would the governments of the world side with the hijacker or with the passengers? Would the nations and governments of the world declare that the hijacking is an internal affair between the passengers and the hijacker, or take steps to rescue the passengers?"
