MEK Iran Gatherings in Support of People of Iran
Hundreds of Iranian diaspora, supporters of the MEK Iran in the Netherlands held a rally in solidarity with the Iran protests- Sunday, January 26, 2020
The people of Iran have been holding protests, anti-government demonstrations and strikes across the country for quite some time, with activity increasing over the past few months. The MEK Iran has increasing support inside Iran and it has Resistance Units across the country that are very active in supporting the protesters, raising awareness and making the people’s resistance known. The MEK Iran has also had the unfortunate task of gathering the names of those that have been killed by security forces during the uprising that started in mid-November last year.

The MEK Iran and the NCRI have been very active outside the country. Supporters of the MEK Iran have been holding gatherings in cities across the world in recent days and they have voiced their solidarity with the people of Iran who are struggling to obtain even the most basic of human rights.

The MEK Iran has shared images of the solidarity gatherings that have taken place. MEK Iran supporters took to the cold snowy streets in Canada to call for the immediate release of all jailed protesters. They also called for the brutal and criminal mullahs to be brought to justice.
MEK supporters in the Netherlands gathered in Amsterdam to voice their determination in ensuring that the future is a more positive one for the people of Iran. They were heard chanting “We will not back down, instead we fight on for our freedom”. They highlighted that President Hassan Rouhani is not the moderate that he is made out to be, explaining that there have been thousands of executions carried out since he took office. MEK Iran supporters in Amsterdam also paid tribute to the 120,000 martyrs that died trying to achieve freedom for the people of Iran, including the 1,500 protesters that were killed by security forces during the recent protests.
Many of the MEK Iran supporters participating in these gatherings across the world highlighted the importance of the international community in changing the course Iran is taking. Many supporters called on the international community to blacklist the regime’s terrorist Ministry of Intelligence and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
Gatherings also took place in support of the MEK Iran in Austria, Denmark, and Sweden. The general consensus is that the people of Iran are not alone and that there are many people around the world that have invested in a free Iran in which the people are able to benefit from freedom and democracy.

The MEK and the NCRI have significant support from members of parliament, lawmakers and important political figures. This support is bipartisan and is a reminder to the people of Iran that they have the backing of the international community and that their fight is not in vain.
