MEK Iran: World Media Should Be Reporting on Iran’s Affairs
It is not really much of a surprise that the global media has steered clear of events in Iran because there is clear evidence that there is a significantly sized contender to the current regime. This opposition force does not support a theocracy, but a democratically elected body to oversee the direction of the country which is in tatters right now.
Because the global media has chosen not to follow what is going on in Iran, the country is leaving a shameful history in its wake. One of the key events that should not be ignored is the uprisings and protests supported by Iran’s significant opposition, The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), And The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran).
To begin with, the opposition movement concentrated more on demonstrations, but as it has become even more focused, it is focusing on chanting provocative slogans, such as “death to the dictator.” These slogans have been repeated in around 150 cities and towns. To begin with, this voice of the people was suppressed by Iranian security forces who were warned or arrested. But by November 2019, a new uprising was on its way by MEK resistance units.
As the MEK resistance units grow it has been very dramatic watching how the Iranian regime has been approaching that growth spurt. The regime’s authorities are doing their best to keep the name of the MEK resistance units “out of the mouths of Iran’s domestic population.’’ For much of Iran’s modern history, a taboo has been enforced on anyone who mentions the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran).
Cracking down on dissent by the regime is a crime against humanity
In 1988, “death commissions” conducted throughout the whole country began to interrogate political prisoners members or supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), about their political affiliations. Anyone who would not demonstrate their support for the current regime was given death sentences and over this short period around 30,000 prisoners had been subject to the death penalty and ended up being buried in mass graves.
The MEK is not destroyed by the reign of terror
The MEK and the Resistance didn’t give up but established themselves underground while continuing in their efforts to organize and promote the sorts of activities that could help to oust the supreme leader in favor of a representative government. The 2018 and 2019 protests only took place because of the efforts made by MEK resistance units.

The regime itself has willingly acknowledged the popularity of MEK and how many people support the Iranian Resistance (PMOI / MEK Iran) after so many years of silence. Also, overseas news outlets have easy access to virtually everything they need but they haven’t been pursuing the Iranian cause as a matter of urgency.

The MEK has kept the media informed especially in relation to Iran’s nuclear capacity, human rights abuses, terrorist plots, and most recently the COVID-19 outbreak that has caused the deaths of six times more Iranians than has been publicly acknowledged by the regime.
On July 17th, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) will run an international rally that promotes support for a regime change along with democracy, and justice for the victims of Iranian terrorism and human rights abuses. This rally has been timetabled to take place online. It is expected the live stream presentation will make it of more interest to many more people.
