In U.S., the MEK Supporters Echo the Voice of Their Compatriots in Iran Protests
Anti-government protests erupted in Iran on Friday, November 15, over the regime’s sudden increase in the fuel price. The protests are going on, yet the Iranian regime tries to silence them in vain. For this reason, the Iranian Americans, supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) also known as the Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK held demonstrations in 10 states in solidarity with the Iranian people’s uprising.
The local branches of the Organization of Iranian American Communities (OIAC), which supports the MEK, held demonstrations in Washington D.C., Lons Angeles California, Houston Texas, Sandy Springs Georgia, etc.
