Washington, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) released the following statement today after introducing an internationally coordinated resolution expressing continued support for the Iranian people as they stand up for freedom, human rights, and the fundamental elements of democracy:  

“I am pleased to introduce a resolution that recognizes that the will of the Iranian people is to have the freedom of expression and the other basic human rights that we take for granted in the United States. My resolution states that this Congress lends its sincere and respectful support. What started as a grassroots election controversy in Iran has grown into a national movement for freedom.  

“As a founding member of the Trans-Atlantic Parliamentary Group, I am encouraged to be coordinating this resolution with the Parliaments of the European Union and Canada. The freedoms Iranians are fighting for are universal and their friends in the West wholeheartedly support their cause.”
