MEK Iran: Resistance Units Continue to Voice their Contempt for Clerical Regime
Last week, the Iranian Interior Minister tried to downplay the extent of last November’s nationwide uprising. He also tried to downplay the number of deaths that resulted from extreme brutality and violence on the part of the security forces.
The uprising last year was a signal to the regime that the people are determined to see the regime fall. The people despise the mullahs regime and the suppression that they have been dealing with for the past few decades.
Years ago, the people would not have dared to speak out against the religious leaders of the country but they have come to realize that they have no option if they ever want to be free from the clerical regime. During the last major uprising in November 2019, the people were chanting “death to the dictator” and “down with Rouhani” – referring to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the Iranian president.
Ali Khamenei used this discussion to get the Basij mercenaries to express their fear over this rise in support for the #MEK #Iran

There is currently a lot of unrest across the country and people have been celebrating the anniversary of the death of the founder of the Iranian regime – Ruhollah Khomeini. Since Khomeini took power and until his death, he suppressed the people of Iran and led horrific policies of suppression, that has been continued by his successor.
The suppression of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) has been on the regime’s agenda since the beginning. The Supreme Leader at that time – Khomeini – issued a fatwa in 1988 ordering the execution of all supporters of the main opposition group. During the space of just a few months, more than 30,000 political prisoners were killed and the incident has become known as the 1988 massacre.
The regime is worried about another uprising and it is trying its hardest to quash dissent. It is cracking down on the people and trying to threaten them into being silent. However, this tactic is just making the people even more determined to see the regime fall.
The (PMOI / MEK Iran) is keeping up the momentum of its Resistance movement and it has Resistance Units the whole way across the country. The support of the opposition is a major comfort and inspiration to the people and it gives the people the ability to move forward towards their goal of freedom, democracy, and the respect of human rights.

In many cities across the country, Resistance Units celebrated the anniversary of Khomeini’s death and they put banners on walls making their contempt for the regime known.
The regime has dismissed the role of the opposition for many years, but it has recently had to admit that it really is a major threat to his existence. During the month of May, a state-run publication reported that the support for the (PMOI / MEK Iran) is growing bigger, especially among intellectuals and students.
The role of the #MEK is not limited to revealing the regime’s lies. The MEK #Iran has shown a way to put an end to the problems Iranians are facing with during for the past 40 years https://t.co/YOMAoUBJ4o#Covid_19 @USAdarFarsi pic.twitter.com/jUfItRSAAr

The people of Iran are going to be the force behind eventual regime change. However, it is essential for the international community to speak out and take action when it comes to the Iranian regime’s crimes against the people.
