This plan was very simple. In Tabriz, mentioning that Tehran can not do any progress, most of my friends said “It should be started from Azerbaijan. First, here should be reformed. We have to create national government here by the help of Azerbaijanis. Tehran is the head of reactionaries and the center of dictatorship. Tehran has been against all non-central movements. In first step, we should forget there and start our movement here directly.”
The truth of this thought was proved when I talked with the officials about the telegraphs of complain sent by Azerbaijanis. For example, Bayat said “I gave a speech by radio and people should not put themselves in difficulty by sending complains and telegraphs.”
Sadr said “If thousands of complains are sent, I will not answer them.”
These words could not have other answers. We should talk with people directly. The freedom should be obtained with the power of the people. With this slogan and the suggestion of the liberals of Azerbaijan, I moved from Tehran to Azerbaijan.
Here, after we seriously investigated the domestic and international situation again, we understood the necessity of establishment of an independent and great party.
This party should work under the name of democracy which has been the target of all human and familiar to all people. Therefore, we accepted this name and to gather people around that, we published an extensive manifesto on Monday.
This manifesto was based on the rights and authorities that Azerbaijanis have fought to achieve them as their requirement for a long time. We cannot forget the history of the fight of Azerbaijanis for liberalism. The reactionary elements of Tehran have deeply offended Azerbaijan. We cannot expect anything -positive- from the dictator regime of Tehran. Tehran has always tried to keep Azerbaijan in pressure. The traitor leaders of Tehran have not waived to annihilate our leaders and to break our national pride.
