MEK Iran: Resistance Units has continued their anti-regime actions across the country
The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran’s (PMOI/MEK Iran) Resistance Units has continued their anti-regime actions across the country this week, despite the security forces being on full alert and the threat of the coronavirus.
The MEK Iran reports that over 43,000 people in the country have died from coronavirus, mostly the poor as they were forced back to work five weeks ago and cannot afford to stop work. At the same time, even the regime’s experts are predicting that a major uprising is coming soon; potentially big enough to overthrow the regime.
The regime is using the pandemic to increase suppression, but the MEK Iran is resisting them every step of the way. The MEK Iran is serving as a beacon for freedom, representing a rebellious and defiant generation who were key players in the December 2017 and November 2019 uprisings. These selfless people believe that the fight against the coronavirus is part of the resistance against the regime.

The MEK Iran report that Resistance Units have been hanging posters and writing graffiti supportive of Iranian Resistance leaders Massoud and Maryam Rajavi in public areas, across Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz, Mashhad, Rasht, Hamedan, Ahwaz, Gilan, Shahr-e Kord, Karaj, Qazvin, Khorramabad, Robat Karim, Bandar Abbas, Semnan, and Fuman.
On Sunday, Isfahan youth set fire to a Martyrs Foundation building to protest a regime-owned organization that steals from the people. They also burned a base of the paramilitary Basij force, which is a group used by the regime to crackdown to protesters, especially during the November nationwide uprising.
On Saturday, MEK Iran members in Isfahan, Shahr-e Kord, and Karaj, torched another Basij base, another economic foundation of the regime that stole from the Iranian people, and images of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

From Thursday to Sunday, Resistance Units in Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz, Rasht, Hamedan, Ahwaz, Gilan, Karaj, Qazvin, Khorramabad, Gorgan, Mashhad, Robat Karim, Bandar Abbas, Fuman, Shahr-e Kork, Hamedan, Semnan, put up handwritten posters in public places with slogans like:
- “Coronavirus outbreak is the guilt of the Iranian regime and mullahs.”
- “Free political prisoners”
- “It is time to rise, to rebel and rise and break the prison chains”
- “The generation of Iran will not give up to the coronavirus caused by the supreme leader and will not accept silence”
- “Down with Khamenei, Hail to Rajavi”
- “Khamenei’s rule will be overthrown”
As Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Iran said in March: “There is a single solution for Coronavirus, for poverty, for oppression and tyranny. That solution is overthrowing the mullahs’ religious dictatorship in its entirety.”
Mrs. Rajavi said in her ‘’Nowruz (Persian New Year) message this year’’ that 60 million Iranians were living below the poverty line. This includes ‘’temporary workers, poor farmers, slum dwellers, the unemployed and the hungry.’’ She says that any regime that claims to be Islamic would support the oppressed and would in these difficult times exempt this large number of people from having to pay utility bills. It would also provide much needed ‘’financial, technical and training support’’ to essential food providers such as ‘’farmers, villagers, garden workers, livestock owners’’ and food producers.
