MEK Support Grow Among Iran´s Youth
The Iranian regime’s disinformation campaign, headed by its intelligence ministry, spreads myths about the regime’s primary opposition group, The People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), having no popular support and being despised by the majority of the population.
The propaganda factory
However, nothing is effectively coordinated, as is typical in this regime. The propaganda factory does not create consistent products, nor are the numerous parts involved in such activities coordinated. One topic that has clarified this dispute is their assertions about the MEK’s lack of popular support.
Protest in Khuzestan
Large-scale protests have erupted in Khuzestan, southwest Iran, since July 15. In the previous two weeks, the protest has moved to a number of other cities, including Tehran, Tabriz, Bushehr, and Isfahan.
This growing trend, as well as the regime’s repression, will continue in the days and weeks ahead, particularly once the regime’s new president, Ebrahim Raisi, is inaugurated on August 5.
On June 18, Raisi was “selected,”
On June 18, Raisi was “selected,” but the vast majority of Iranians boycotted the poll, knowing that regime officials had already paved the way for his victory when Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei made it clear that he had picked Raisi.
According to all reports, Raisi’s decision was based on his lengthy history of supporting and engaging in the repression of dissent, particularly that affiliated with MEK.
Free Iran World Summit-2021
Alternatively, the Free Iran World Summit-2021 began on Saturday, July 10, with the involvement of Iranians and resistance supporters from more than 50,000 places in 105 countries, as well as the presence of thousands of members of MEK, at Ashraf 3 in Albania. Participants convened online with a 20-hour time difference from all around the world.
These recent events remark the growing support, both domestically and internationally of the MEK, in contrast with the regime’s escalating internal crisis.
“The youth of Iran set the Mojahedin as their role model.”
On August 5, the Haraz News website accidentally revealed a critical fact in a piece about the regime’s anxiety: “The youth of Iran set the Mojahedin as their role model.”
The article went on to mention the growing youth support for the MEK, as well as the ongoing protests that are shaking the regime’s foundation.
“We are talking about a society in which our youth, as future leaders of our country, have no plan for the future. Which culture-building and guiding of those in power have resulted in the revolt and rebellion seen in today’s youngsters across the country?
Adventure against the regime
“Instead of engaging in lessons, exercises, games, and sports, our youth and students are embarking on an adventure against the regime.
If you are looking for documents for this claim, watch (Mojahedin) TV programs once to find out where our young people’s role models and their frustrations come from.
‘Death to the dictator’
“Two young schoolchildren block the entrance to a city by picking up a few tires and set them on fire, claiming that they have blocked the supporting road of security forces! At a school in a remote village, children protest! they chanted ‘Death to Rouhani’ and ‘Death to the dictator’.
“Throwing cocktails, destroying banners in the streets and squares, and writing insulting slogans against the values of the system has become one of the nightly pastimes of our youth.
“The rightful protests of the people of Khuzestan are turning into riots It has been shot. It is not clear whether this is Khuzestan or Texas! Later, its clip will be broadcast on TV (Mojahedin) and the media of other enemies of the system in cyberspace.”
