MEK Resistance Units Support Free Iran Global Summit
The opening day of the Free Iran Global Summit online which took place last week was supported by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran). The Summit connected 30,000 places throughout the world and was attended through Zoom by more than 1,000 important global figures.
The MEK supporters showed their backing for Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), by involving themselves in writing on walls and distributing leaflets telling the people of Iran that the time had come to overthrow the clerical dictatorship and put in its place a democratic movement that would establish a free Iran.
The regime’s repressive security forces and Basij militias were keeping a sharp eye on the movements of the (PMOI / MEK Iran) and in particular in the following cities:
Zahedan, Zabol, Yazd, Urmia, Tabriz, Shiraz, Shahroud, Shahriar, Shahrekord, Shahrak-e Qods, Semnan, Saveh, Sarbaz, Rudsar, Robat Karim, Rasht, Qom, Qazvin, Nowshahr, Neyshabur, Meshkinshahr, Mazandaran, Masjed Soleyman, Mashhad, Marivan, Marand, Malard Karaj, Lorestan, Lahijan, Kahnooj, Kish (Hormozgan), Khuzestan, Khuzestan, Khoy, Khorramshahr, Khorramabad, Kermanshah, Kerman, Kerman, Kazerun, Kashan, Karaj, Jiroft. Isfahan, Hashtgerd, Hamedan, Gorgan, Fars province, Dezful, Damghan, Chalus, Chaharmahal Bakhtiari, Bushehr, Bojnurd, Behbahan, Bandar Anzali, Bandar Abbas, Babolsar, Asaluyeh, Arak, Andimeshk, Amol, Ahvaz, Ahar, Abadan.
As well as all the practical activities that took place in Iran, many MEK Resistance Unit members photographed their presence at the online summit and posted photos. The Iranian regime tried its best to disrupt the summit, but it was unsuccessful. It tried a cyberattack but that did not work. It tried direct attacks on Iranian Resistance websites and also tried to hack into a web service provider so that inquiries about MEK’s would be blocked. It is doing this because it sees the MEK as a threat to its regime.
The success of the event couldn’t be better illustrated than through Google’s report which said there was a 1,000% rise in searches about the MEK in both Farsi and English.
The Iranian regime boasts a long history of censoring the Internet and cyberterrorism. This was well illustrated at the November 2019 protests when the regime shut down internet access for several days so that news of the protests would not be heard by the Iranian media or foreign media stations.
The regime is also developing spying technology using the internet to try and keep a track and put under arrest anyone supporting the MEK.
