The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) reported that numerous activities took place across Iran involving the youth of the country as they marked the 42nd anniversary of Iran’s 1979 anti-monarchy revolution.

Iran’s Resistance Units

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) is one of Iran’s Resistance Units that have influence throughout Iran, including Tehran, Isfahan, Tabriz, Yazd, Zanjan, Urmia, Borujen, Bonab, Karaj, Shirvan, Kerman, Bushehr, Kermanshah, Mazandaran, Mahshahr, Sari, and Ilam.

Anniversary of 1979 revolution

This anniversary saw displays of large posters of the MEK’s key leaders which are Massoud Rajavi and Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). The accompanying posters said, “the rebels will pave the way for a new uprising.”

Slogans were written on posters

Other slogans written on posters by hand had the following messages:

  • “Commemoration of February 1979 struggle for freedom,”
  • “We must struggle a hundred times harder to take back Iran,”
  • “Rise up to overthrow the mullahs’ regime,”
  • “Down with the mullahs’ rule,”
  • “Down with Khamenei, hail to Rajavi.”


Handwritten poster

There was one handwritten poster that stood out which read, “Khamenei must get lost; Iran doesn’t want you.”

The actual anniversary was on February 10th, 2021 and on that day defiant youths in Tehran and other cities across Iran set fire to entrances and sign outside the Basij repressive centers. Also, any posters or signs of Khomeini, Khamenei, and Qassem Soleimani in 22 locations were set alight too.

Apart from Tehran, other cities saw the actions of the resistance movement which included:

Robat Karim, Mashhad, Isfahan, Ahvaz, Bandar Abbas, Hamadan, Kazerun, Neyshabur, Chenaran, Masal (Gilan), Shirvan, Sabzevar,

Widespread support for defiant youths

Reports from throughout the country indicated that there was widespread support for defiant youths and their eagerness to overthrow the ruling criminal regime.


Farmers and teachers protest in Isfahan

(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): In the midst of the 40th anniversary of the 1979 revolution against the Shah’s dictatorship, farmers, teachers, and others took it to the streets to demand their rights. The peaceful protest was attacked by regime forces.



At the end of the 1970s, protests started to erode the power of the Shah’s regime, which had exerted absolute control over the country. The regime began to take the protesters seriously and their demands for political freedom and the release of political prisoners. At that time the leaders of the revolution were being held in prison and there was no functioning alternative to the regime.

Ruhollah Khomeini in fact hijacked Iran’s revolution. After gaining power, Khomeini’s regime started to impose an unforgiving religious dictatorship on the people with no room for people to express their ideas freely.

Despite the fact, the same regime has held power since that time a true revolution is quite possible. In recent years as the regime has become more and more repressive so the people are fighting back and are showing their force through large protest marches that take place periodically throughout the country.

Therefore, the courageous activities of the Resistance Units have had to act when they are likely to be arrested and tortured and may even face execution for their beliefs.

Nationwide protests

The November 2019 nationwide protests showed how dedicated the resistance movement is as 1,500 protesters were killed by the security forces. Reuters confirmed in a special report on December 23, 2019, about the deadly crackdown on November nationwide protests in Iran the death toll of 1500 that was announced by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) on December 15, 2019.
