MEK Iran: Regime Shooting Protesters in Isfahan
Security forces raided their temporary camp in the early hours of Thursday, Farmers had previously called for a massive gathering of citizens on Friday, and the repression further heightened the public’s rage at the dictatorship and its security apparatus.
Locals who had assembled peacefully to protest water shortages started yelling political chants like “down with the dictator” and “down with Khamenei.” As the leadership became aware of the threat of an uprising, it turned to its typical tactics of deception and persecution. While anti-riot police physically attacked protestors and the state media branded them “thugs and hooligans,” the dictatorship also attempted to sow discord among the protesters.
The Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) has attempted to oppress demonstrators while also deflecting their demands for a democratic society and regime change since the return of major popular rallies in Iran in 2018.
The MEK impact on society was reflected in this piece
In 2018, the first round of massive anti-government protests in Iran occurred. People’s social demands swiftly shifted to political demands, with many calling for regime change. Ali Khamenei, the regime’s supreme leader, quickly acknowledged that Iran’s major opposition organization, the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), played a key role in the protests.
Iran’s state-run Nasim-e Kermanshah website reposted an item first published by the state-run Nama News and Nasim News agencies on April 24, 2020.
The post was later removed, but we’ve resurrected it for your use. One of Khamenei’s representatives, who wishes to remain nameless, concedes in this article that regime officials and state media use the ousted monarchy as a “distraction” to keep people from joining or supporting the MEK.
MEK stands out in the minds of the younger generations
“Then, Haji explained that there is a huge mistake in our media. This mistake has to do with ‘dealing with the enemy,’ not ‘knowing the enemy.’ Anyone who has fought hard to maintain Imam [Ruhollah] Khomeini’s legacy understands that the MEK is the Islamic Republic’s sole adversary. However, once we engage a media war with this group, we notice that our writers, speakers, and others attempt to link the monarchy to the MEK.”
“All media outlets have been notified that wherever they want to warn of the danger of the Mojahedin Khalq Organization, they must mention the name of the ‘monarchy’ or ‘Reza Pahlavi’ next to it,” Mahmoud Alavi, the regime’s former Minister of Intelligence, said, “so that the MEK does not stand out in the minds of the younger generations!”
The regime attempted to divert people’s attention away
This disastrous “distraction” strategy has been utilized by the dictatorship numerous times. Following a series of protests across Iran beginning in April 2018, the regime attempted to divert people’s attention away from their demands by deploying hired thugs into the masses to chant for the monarchy.
According to reports, the most recent protests include clear calls for regime change, comparable to the January 2018 and November 2019 major protests. If the current crisis continues, and the Iranian regime becomes even more isolated in the international community, the day may come when Iran has a new, democratic government in place.
