Iran: Continued Support for MEK’s
Iranian youth continue from across the country to send messages of support on the occasion of the founding anniversary of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran). The messages were sent from all Iranian provinces, highlighting the MEK’s growing support among the younger generation despite the atmosphere of fear and repression caused by the regime.
MEK is Iran’s main opposition movement
MEK is Iran’s main opposition movement seeking a free, democratic, secular, and non-nuclear Iran. The MEK is Iran’s longest-standing movement that resisted the two dictatorships of the Shah and the ayatollahs. It believes in a progressive and democratic Islam and equality of men and women.

In their personal messages, many declared to be proud to be members of MEK’s network inside Iran also known as the Iranian Resistance Units. They pledged their support for the MEK’s reelected Secretary-General Ms. Zahra Merikhi to overthrow the mullahs’ regime and to free Iran.
A young woman from Tehran said in her message, “What inspires me to support the MEK are the martyrs fallen for freedom. I pledge to do everything possible to liberate Iran. I’m glad to have this opportunity to send a message to Ms. Zahra Merikhi, MEK’s Secretary-General and I’m proud to be with you for the freedom of Iran.”
