MEK Resistance Units Continue to Call For Regime Change in Iran
From Saturday, August 1st, to Tuesday, August 4th, Iranian Resistance Units who are part of an internal network of activists of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), have been organizing activities promoting regime change in Iran. They left graffiti in public places of the following cities:
Tehran, Tabriz, Shiraz, Mashhad, Mazandaran, Nishapur, Hashtgerd (Alborz), Babol, Kerman, Zahedan, Rasht, Doroud, Bandar Anzali, Borujerd, Hamadan, Kermanshah, Shahriar, and Karaj.
The handwritten messages and slogans speaking about the Iranian Resistance Leaders, Massoud Rajavi and Maryam Rajavi were scribbled on walls.
The slogans read:
- “Down with Khamenei, hail to Maryam Rajavi.”
- “Our commitment is that we, the people of Iran and the Iranian Resistance, will overthrow the clerical regime and will reclaim Iran.”
- “Our commitment is to remain faithful to our people’s sovereignty and their vote.”
- “The key to victory is to rebel and struggle a hundred times harder.”
- “The mullahs’ virus has no result but mass murder.”
- “We are determined to restore freedom and people’s sovereignty in Iran”
On August 4th, rebellious Iranian youths attacked an IRGC Basij base in Karaj. Basij is a hated paramilitary force and a division of the terrorist IRGC. It is used to stop protests and demonstrations like the November 2019 nationwide uprising, but it uses terrorist tactics to quell dissent. The rebellious youth burned images of Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the current regime, and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in a number of cities including:
Tehran, Shiraz, Ahvaz, Khorramabad, Kashan, Zahedan, Masjed Soleiman, and Javanrud
The Resistance Units commemorate every year the slaughter of 30,000 Iranian political prisoners in 1988. This was an unforgettable crime that took place because Ruhollah Khomeini wanted to purge Iran’s prisons of members and supporters of MEK. The Resistance Units and the supporters of the MEK have paid a visit to mass graves where they were told those murdered in 1988 were buried in secret. Handwritten messages in remembrance of the martyrs and calling for the prosecution of the perpetrators were spread throughout the area.
These signs read:
- “We will neither forgive nor forget the 1988 massacre of political prisoners”
- “The blood of the martyrs of the 1988 massacre gives rise to uprisings in Iran”
- “The 1988 massacre, the greatest unpunished crime against humanity”
- “Justice for the martyrs of the 1988 massacre”
- “Down with Khamenei, hail to freedom”
- “Commemoration of the 32nd anniversary of the 1988 massacre of thousands of MEK political prisoners and freedom fighters”
On August 3rd, the MEK Resistance Units’ members supported the anniversary of Iran’s 1906 Constitutional Revolution, in Tehran, Hashtgerd (Alborz province), Shiraz, Nishapur and Tabriz.
On August 5th, 1906, following 20 years of the Iranian people’s struggle against the supreme reign of the Qajar dynasty kings they succeeded in getting their first Mozaffaraddin Shah who was forced to accept the parliamentary monarchy position and endorsed the mandate for a constitutional monarchy. The MEK just continues the struggle of Sattar Khan and Mossadegh for Iran’s freedom.
