MEK Resistance Units Honor International Women’s Day with Acts of Rebellion
On March 10th, members of the MEK’s Resistance Units in Iran launched a widespread campaign in recognition of International Women’s Day on March 8th.
The campaign was aimed at calling attention to the treatment of women under the theocratic Iranian regime and promoting the democratic alternative for the country’s future offered by the MEK and the Iranian Resistance under the leadership of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi.
MEK Resistance Unit members in the city of Urmia, northwest Iran, put up signs featuring quotes from Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). Mrs. Rajavi is the leader of the Iranian Resistance and has called for gender equality as part of her ten-point plan for the democratic future of Iran.
Shiraz and Abadan
Members of MEK Resistance Unit 667 in Shiraz, central Iran, and Abadan, southwest Iran, posted signs in both English and Farsi quoting Mrs. Rajavi’s statements on women and gender equality.
