Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on Protests in Iran
Congressman Dan Donovan, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa, issued the following statement on continuing protests against the Iranian regime:
"The only Iranians who will 'pay the price' for their behavior are those in the ruling regime. The Iranian people are apparently fed up with leaders who fund international terror and restrict their basic human rights while the economy falters and prices rise. Sooner or later, from North Korea to Iran, repressed people will stand up to demand their fundamental freedoms, including the ability to express opinions and communicate freely."
-- Congressman Donovan serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and the House Committee on Homeland Security. He represents Staten Island and South Brooklyn in Congress.
