Some members of the U.S. congress show their support for the nationwide uprising of the Iranian people to end 40 years of religious dictatorship and terrorism in Iran.

Rick Scott Senator from state of Florida said in a tweet, “Incredible bravery shown by the people of Iran standing up against their oppressive regime. The US is watching and hears you! As a freedom-loving country we stand with those fighting for freedom and democracy around the world!”

Senator Edward J. Markey from Massachusetts said, “The Iranian government must restore internet access to the people, and the Revolutionary Guards must refrain from further threats against protestors.”

Roger Wicker Senior U.S. Senator for Mississippi warned about the cut of internet and said, “The reports of lethal force being used against protesters in Iran are appalling. Tehran should know that no amount of censorship or oppression will hide the full extent of their brutality.”

Tom Cotton Senator from the state of Arkansas tweeted, “The Iranian people are tired of the regime ignoring their basic needs while funneling vast sums to terrorists throughout the Middle East. We must stand with the brave protestors demanding accountability from the ayatollahs.”

Representative Will Hurd from Texas warned once again against the Iranian regime’s terrorism threats.

“Why Iran Protests matter: the only way we prevent Iran from supporting terrorism and obtaining nuclear weapons is a change in government, and that can only happen if the Iranian people stand up. We must amplify their message so this tyrannical regime can be stopped,” Will Hurd tweeted.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo emphasized American support for Iran Protests 2019.

He said in a tweet,“As I said to the people of Iran almost a year and a half ago: The United States is with you.”

“It is legitimate and deserving of our respect when people courageously air their economic and political grievances, as is currently happening in Iran,” said Ulrike Demmer spokeswoman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel to the reporters.

“The Iranian government should respond to the current protests with a willingness to engage in dialogue,” she told a press conference, adding that Berlin was following the events “with concern” and “we urge the government in Tehran to respect freedom of assembly and expression.”
