June 20th Commemorative Anniversary by Resistance Units and supporters of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI / MEK Iran) across Iran
Over the last week, the MEK resistance units and supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) remembered June 20th, 1981 which was the date when the Iranian people’s resistance formed a movement against the ruling religious dictatorship, and the day for martyrs and political prisoners.
There were some key comments made which included:
- “Massoud Rajavi On June 20, 1981, we upheld the banner of resistance.”
- “We will not rest until Iran is free, down with Khamenei.”
- “Onward to rebellion and uprising – a prosperous Iran, with Maryam Rajavi.”

a key component of the messages was that protests and uprisings were the only way to bring about freedom and democracy in Iran. Leaflets were distributed, slogans were written, pictures of (PMOI / MEK Iran) members who had been lost in their fight for freedom. MEK resistance units activists took on the job of laying a wreath on the graves of those martyrs in cities throughout the country.
Slogans include the following:
- “Maryam Rajavi: June 20th, is the turning point in the historic resistance for freedom and democracy and against Iran’s religious dictatorship,”
- “Maryam Rajavi: Let’s remember 1,500 fallen victims during November 2019 uprising,”
- “Marking June 20, the day of the martyrs and political prisoners,”
- “June 20 marks the day of the martyrs, your path continues,”
- “Khamenei’s headquarters is the source of all diseases, terrorism, torture, looting, and corruption,” “We can, and we must overthrow the velayat-e faqih regime (religious dictatorship),”
