Iranian political prisoners honour women’s struggle on International Women’s Day
In their letters, they praised the bravery of women who have fought against the misogynistic regime and laid down their lives for the Iranian people’s democratic revolution.
A group of supporters of the opposition People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK) in Evin Prison wrote that they are proud of the emergence of such competent women at the forefront of the fight for freedom. They mentioned women like Fatemeh Amini, Azam Rouhi Ahangarn, and other women who stepped into the path of struggle during the disgraceful rule of the Pahlavi Dynasty, to the thousands of PMOI women who, under the leadership of Maryam Rajavi, represent Iranian women.
In their message from the Central Prison of Karaj, another group of MEK political prisoners said that women are spearheading and leading the protests in Iran and playing their role in the movement to overthrow the regime. They endorsed Maryam Rajavi’s leadership and mentioned role models such as Ashraf Rajavi, Saba Haft-Baradaran, and Asiyeh Rakhshani. They also highlighted the shining examples of Iranian women in the Resistance Units in different cities.
In a message from Gohardasht Prison of Karaj, another group of Iranian political prisoners wrote that women and girls who have organized in the role of vanguards and leaders have shaken the ideology of the fundamentalist regime. They mentioned the experience of the organization by PMOI and combatant women who led the way in political and military fields. They also praised the political leadership of Maryam Rajavi in the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), who has cracked the ruling regime’s misogynistic stereotypes and organized men and women in Resistance Units.
The political prisoners condemned the regime’s atrocities and political and cultural terrorism, which they said will not be broken apart unless by the uproar of rebellious women. They urged the continuation of the revolutionary uprising until the oppressed people win.
The messages from the Iranian political prisoners on International Women’s Day highlight the bravery and resilience of Iranian women in their fight for freedom and equality.
