MEK Iran: People Express Support for Victims of Recent Protests
The drought of the city’s lone river, the Zayandeh Rud, prompted the most recent anti-government protests by Iranians in the city of Isfahan. Farmers’ requests for their water rights sparked the demonstrations. However, because of the river’s central role in the lives of all people, individuals from all walks of life eventually joined the protest.
missing eyes as a symbol of solidarity and sympathy
Fearing that the protests would spread to other parts of the country, the authorities intervened harshly and deployed birdshot pellets against the people. Several demonstrators have lost their sight as a result of the regime’s decision to repress the protests at a “lower cost,” as opposed to the enormous cost it paid after the repression of the November 2019 protests.
People all around the country quickly adopted these missing eyes as a symbol of solidarity and sympathy. Many people showed their support for the injured by wearing eye patches over one eye.
The injured children of Isfahan are like our children
This campaign was initiated by the mothers of protest martyrs in November 2019, and it quickly became one of Iran’s most popular topics on social media. Following that, individuals from all around the world joined in on the activity.
“The injured children of Isfahan are like our children, and we will not allow their suffering to be buried,” these mothers added.
Even the educators and teachers who have been protesting in recent days have shown their support by wearing patches over their eyes. This demonstrates that, despite the regime’s assertions that the protests were orchestrated by thugs and infiltrators from abroad, they were all ordinary people exercising their lawful rights peacefully.
Massoud Rajavi: every eye you blind hundred more added to them
This support sends a clear message to the dictatorship that repression, even in its most savage form, will not be able to stop the people’s uprisings, and that it will confront additional protests in the coming days, weeks, and months.
On June 12, 1980, the Iranian Resistance’s leader, Massoud Rajavi, gave a speech in Tehran’s Amjadiyeh stadium titled “What Should Be Done?”
“Know that for every hand you break from the Mojahedin, ten more are added to them, and for every eye, you blind from the Mojahedin, a hundred more sighted eyes are added to them, and for every heart, you tear from the Mojahedin and every head you break, a thousand more blessed hearts and heads are added to them.” This is revolution’s logic, monotheism’s logic, evolution’s logic, Islam’s reasoning, and the logic of God and creation.”
We should include the victims of the regime’s acid attacks in these eyes. In the 1988 massacre, we should add to these eyes the eyes of those who chose to be executed rather than back away from the road of a free Iran. This is the true correlation of the eyes of Iranians seeking justice and freedom for the past 42 years.
