BBC Censors Its Own Broadcast to Further Pander to the Mullahs

BBC fake news

BBC showed up as a mouthpiece of the barbarian mullahs against MEK

On November 7, 2019, the BBC World Service broadcast a report on the MEK. The piece was a rehash of discredited regime talking points and relied heavily on “former members” of the MEK, despite the fact that it has been well-established by numerous authorities that these so-called “former members” are recruited by the regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS).

The National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI) Security and Counter-Terrorism Committee responded to the report on the same day, clarifying errors and calling attention to the Iranian regime’s efforts to demonize the MEK.

On November 11, 2019, the BBC posted a new version of their report on their Persian and English websites. The edited version appears to have been censored for consumption by the regime’s media outlets and it’s Friday prayer leaders. The original report was one-sided and full of inaccuracies, but the edited version managed to take any possible positive mention of the MEK and scrub it from existence.

The original report is 26 minutes long and contains approximately 4,000 words. The edited version available on the websites contains less than half of the original content. The BBC, in further editing this false report, engaged in “censorship of an already censored content.”

Content Censored on the Websites

Censored content was wide-ranging but almost invariably involved positive mentions of the MEK or its members. Some of the content that was censored included:

  • remarks by former Manez mayor about the trust that he personally places in the MEK and that the Albanian people share with the MEK as well as his visit to Ashraf-3 (the MEK’s home in Albania);
  • comments about relations between locals and MEK members from two young Albanians whose impoverished father works at Ashraf-3;
  • comments from Diana çuli, writer, women’s rights activist, and former Member of Parliament from Albania’s Socialist Party, discussing the ideas, viewpoints, and behavior of the MEK, as well as their interpretation of Islam;
  • the story of a female MEK member, Somayyeh Mohammadi, and her interview with Albanian prosecutors, statements by Albania’s judicial bodies and those of her lawyer Margarita Kola, regarding the regime’s disinformation campaign;
  • threatening emails sent by the regime’s intelligence Ministry and operatives to the lawyer, containing profanities she could not repeat in the interview; and terrorist threats against the lawyer and her daughter who is studying in Austria.

The censored version of the BBC’s hit piece turns an already embarrassing example of disinformation into full-blown propaganda for the Iranian regime. It also erodes any remaining trust Iranians have left in the BBC, which has long been viewed as an outlet for proponents of the policy of appeasement.

It is at least encouraging to see that the Iranian regime’s demonization campaign has become so well-known and been discredited so exhaustively that even the BBC’s editors had to acknowledge diplomats who have stated: “Some of the former members of the organization that have defected are definitely cooperating with Iran (regime).”

fake news in NBC about MEK

MEK Supporters Respond to NBC’s Fake News

fake news in NBC about MEK

NBCNews posted a biased article on 17 October, full of fake news in favor of Iranian regime and against the MEK

Facing the growing popularity of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK), the Iranian regime and its apologists try to run a new demonizing campaign against the main opposition, MEK. The recent example is an article posted on NBC Website.

This shameful article raised the anger of many Iranians diaspora who find the MEK as their only hope for democratic change in their beloved homeland, Iran. the following our letters by two Iranians expressing their feelings about the biased article of the NBC.

The first letter is from Mr. Ehsan Qaraee; he writes:

“I am an Iranian-Norwegian civil engineer, and human rights activist. Several days ago, I read an article on your website regarding the MEK, the largest and most organized opposition against the theocratic dictatorship in Iran. Unfortunately, this article is filled with slanders and lies about the history and reality of the MEK and sadly repeats baseless accusations made by the propaganda apparatus of the Iranian regime.

Here I only refer to one of those accusations; your writers claim that the MEK killed several Americans back in the 70s. Unfortunately, they deliberately ignore the fact that several courts in your own country dismissed this allegation (among many others). These lies are made by the Iranian regime just to smear the MEK.

Unfortunately Mr Daniel Benjamin has proved many times in the past that his intentions are not right about the MEK particularly and Iran policy in general and because of that he gets so much coverage by the IRGC’s news media, a real terrorist organization which has blood of many Iranians, Iraqis, Syrians,… and Americans on their hands. I’ll attach some of those coverages here.

As a direct victim of the Iranian regime, I sincerely hope that you don’t let your news outlet become a mouthpiece for the dictatorship in Iran.”

The second letter MEK- Iran received is from Amir Seifi, a political refugee, Irish citizen, Mechanical Engineer and the General Manager of a medical technology company, living in Dublin, Ireland. In his letter, Mr. Seifi wrote:

” This is a rejoinder to the NBC News inflammatory and partial article published on October 17th, 2019, titled: “Giuliani’s work for Iranian group with bloody past could lead to more legal woes”.

As an Iranian, I found nothing surprising and new about this hatchet job or any of its false, misleading and tendentious points. A prime example of Fake News. Iranians are very well familiar with such threadbare tactics of the brutal theocracy holding Iran hostage for the past four decades. It is not only victim-blaming but also siding with the perpetrators.

I have no intention of defending the current White House administration. However, with the upcoming campaign for the American presidential elections, this hit piece seems perfectly timed to fuel a specific political agenda; using attacks against political opponents to target the Iranian opposition. One stone and two birds. The Ayatollahs and their lobbyists are great at finding allies with direct and indirect common interests.

The baseless accusation of the PMOI/MEK killing Americans has been examined in courts and by the various American agencies and dismissed as there was not a shred of evidence to back this claim. On the contrary, the Iranian regime has a colorful track record of killing hundreds of Americans in terror attacks such as the Beirut barracks bombings, Khobar Towers bombings in Saudi Arabia, the use of the IEDs in Iraq and so on. It is easy to realize how people like the authors of the article and Daniel Benjamin can turn a blind eye to the latter and but insist on targeting the MEK without any form of investigation on the claims.

The designation of the MEK as a terrorist organization does not need much explanation but just that it happened as part of an appeasement policy towards the Iranian regime, which didn’t yield any fruit in the end. It was thanks to the impartial and independent judiciary system of the United States that found this label unjust and baseless and ruled and forced the resisting administration to remove it.

Leaving aside all baseless accusations, it does not appear really difficult to identify the just side. On one side we have a resistance whose members and supporters have been imprisoned, tortured and murdered. A resistance that has time and time again announced and pledged its commitment to its clear ten-point plan for a free, secular and democratic future for Iran. On the other side, we have bloodthirsty tyrants (needless to say unpopular inside and outside Iran) and their lobbyists like NIAC and supporters such as Benjamin who constantly seek opportunities to serve the Ayatollahs’ regime and its allies. And on this path, they do not care one iota when it comes to sacrificing the values within the Human Rights Declaration and the American Constitution for their own political agenda.

Finally, questioning the source of the MEK/PMOI funds and calling it a mystery is another astounding tendentious remark from the authors of the article and the people whom they quote. To call this lazy journalism is an understatement. I proudly announce that I personally am one of the financial sources of the MEK, along with countless other patriotic Iranians who yearn for a free and democratic Iran. I can back my claim with evidence of my contributions to the MEK/PMOI/NCRI. We, the ordinary Iranians, are whom the resistance relies on upon to fund its struggle against the regime. We understand what the Iranian regime truly is and what it takes to claim our country back again. I was forced to leave Iran after the student uprising of 1999 and 20 years later, people are coming to the streets every day to demand the mullahs go. We will continue to support their opposition and will not stop until our country is free of dictatorship.”

MEK_Iran: Ambassador Blackwell: We must get tougher on Iran

The Iranian regime’s foreign policy has increased in its brazenness, with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) attacking or seizing commercial vessels in the Gulf, bombing Saudi oil infrastructure, and continuing its aggressive policies in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen, but Professor Ken Blackwell warns that the US should not decrease pressure on the mullahs.

He wrote: “The regime’s recent actions cannot simply be interpreted as a response to rising levels of pressure from the US. Its abuses both at home and abroad have been getting worse for quite some time. And they have done so not because of newfound foreign pressure but because of the predictable absence thereof.”

In his op-ed for Townhall, he quoted the head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI),  Maryam Rajavi, as saying that the impunity enjoyed by the regime’s leaders have resulted in emboldening them to export terrorism and warmongering.

The regime’s crimes have been overlooked in favor of appeasement for four decades now, the most heinous of which was the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners who refused to disavow the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), the main Iranian opposition. The massacre was the subject of an extensive exhibition at the NCRI’s international conference in July, where Rajavi noted that even after they brought this evidence to the West, they remained silent.

Blackwell wrote: “America is known to be the foremost defender of human rights around the world and has taken on the scourge of terrorism head-on. Human rights abuses and terrorism are the two pillars of the clerical regime’s strategy for survival… As long as Tehran is not held directly accountable for more than 30,000 deaths, the regime will be emboldened to carry out more violations with impunity. Why would Tehran see any reason to scale back its malign activities, unless the US leads the way by making it clear that its standards for regime behavior have changed?”

He advised that the only way to do this is by holding the regime accountable for its past crimes and bringing those responsible to justice. They must be shown that their actions have consequences. He further noted that while the “maximum pressure” policy is a step in the right direction, economic sanctions are not enough on their own. Instead, the regime’s crimes must be referred to the UN Security Council.

Blackwell wrote: “A proper investigation of the massacre will undoubtedly lead to a conviction in the International Criminal Court for a number of high-ranking Iranian officials, including the current Justice Minister and the current judiciary chief. The US should clearly send a message that Iranian officials are not immune from their wrongdoing. The Iranian people will see that the world supports them as never before and will rise up to demand, once and for all, a new, democratic government. The American administration needs to bring Tehran’s human rights violations into focus to force the regime to rethink its aggression.”

MEK: New Wave of Protests in Iran

Protests of the workers as well as other sectors of the society in Iran raised dramatically in the recent one and a half years. The protests have always been supported by the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/ MEK).

Figures released by the MEK on the protest actions from 21 June to 21 July show a comparative increase compared to the first three months of the year, based on the Iranian calendar. During this period of time, there have been at least 267 protests in seventy- eight cities, villages, and industrial- commercial districts in Iran.

The MEK’s report shows that on average, there have been 9 protests by workers, educators including teachers, pensioners, people affected by recent floods, and … per day in Iran. This MEK report also indicates that there have been one hundred and thirty protests by workers in forty-one cities due to unpaid salaries, lack of official employing, lack of insurance, the firing of workers, and low payment.

MEK’s social network covered the news of protests of workers, farmers, teachers, pensioners, and nurses in Iran. The MEK social network tries to be the voice of voiceless in Iran. The MEK supporters abroad also tirelessly echoed the voice of the suppressed people of Iran in the past four decades.

The MEK has always been a source of inspiration amongst Iranian people particularly the youth and the women.

The Secretary of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) on 20 October 2019 stated:

“On Sunday, October 20, 2019, workers at Azarab factory in the city of Arak (central Iran) continued their demonstrations for the 12th day running despite repeated threats and suppressive measures by the regime. Protesting about the lack of response to their just demands, the enraged workers blocked the Tehran-Ahvaz railway. The suppressive forces attacked the protesting workers, fired teargas to disperse them and arrested a number of the workers.”

The NCRI added:

“Since the start of the new round of protests by Azarab workers a number of them have been summoned and threatened by the intelligence and security agencies.”

The President-elect of the NCRI hailed the courageous and resilient workers of Azarab and urged the people of Arak, especially the defiant youths, to rise in support of the protesting workers.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi urged the International Labor Organization, labor syndicates, and unions as well as all advocates of workers’ rights to condemn the anti-labor policies of the mullahs’ regime and support the rights of Iranian workers.

Camp Ashraf massacre in 2013

The State Dept. Reveals New Details on the Massacre of MEK Members on Sep 1, 2013

Camp Ashraf massacre in 2013

The US State Dept. in a report on 17 October 2013, revealed new details on the massacre of MEK members in Camp Ashraf in 2013

Camp Ashraf, previous home to Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) members in Iraq, was targeted by terrorist agents of the Iranian regime and its Iraqi proxy forces on September first, 2013. This brutal attack left 52 killed, 7 hostages and millions of dollars’ worth of damages to the camp’s property.

It was not the first time MEK members and camps were subjected to the Iranian regime’s attacks; however, this time, the MEK’s camp was subjected to an attack while one hundred of MEK members remained in Camp Ashraf based on a quadripartite agreement between the Iraqi government, the US, the UN, and the MEK. MEK members were left to protect MEK’s property while other members had been transferred to Camp Liberty. All one hundred MEK members were protected persons under the Fourth Geneva Convention. Iranian agents killed fifty-two in cold blood and took seven hostages, including six women.

The State Dept. Reveals new details

The US State Department in its new report entitled: Iranian Regime Malign Activities During Negotiation With Iran and During JCPOA and published on October 17, 2019, revealed new details, saying:

       “On September 1, 2013, an attack by Iranian proxies Kata’ib Hezballah (KH) and Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq (AAH) on Camp Ashraf in Iraq, led to the deaths of 50 members of the Mujahedeen-e Khalq, or MeK.  Press reports claim members of the QF not only planned the attack, but also played a direct combat role in it. The QF, along with KH and AAH members, also abducted seven MeK members and smuggled them back to Iran, according to the press.  The missing seven members haven’t been seen or heard from since the attack.”

Some other facts on the event

Mr.Tahar Boumedra, the former UN advisor on Camp Ashraf- in his testimony in the hearing of British House of Commons on September 13, 2013, said:

“The reality about Camp Ashraf is …. sealed. Nobody could penetrate Camp Ashraf without the active participation of the Iraqi Security Forces. In the east, south of Lion’s Gate, you have the base for the HQ of the Army in Ashraf and you have the police.”

The New York Times on September 3, 2013, wrote:

“Iraq’s security forces, trained by the American government at a cost of billions of dollars, were sharply rebuked by the United Nations on Tuesday for a deadly raid on Sunday at Camp Ashraf, a compound near the Iranian border that houses a group of Iranian dissidents. United Nations officials, after visiting Camp Ashraf on Monday, said they had seen 52 bodies, most of them shot in the head and upper body, some with their hands tied.”

Reuters on September 1, 2013, reported from Baghdad:

“Two Iraqi security sources said that army and special forces had opened fire on residents…”

Collaborating with the then Iraqi government, Nouri al-Maliki administration, the terrorist Quds Force was in charge to conduct the attack. The plan was the total annihilation of all one hundred members of the MEK at once; however, they could not keep up to their malign plan and forty- two could survive to tell the world the true story.

Two political prisoners on hunger strike in prison.

MEK-Iran: Urgent calls for political prisoners in Iran to be released

 

Two political prisoners on hunger strike in prison.

Ibrahim Khalil Sedighi Hamedani and his son Salar have been sentenced to 30 years of prison on bogus charges. The criminal regime has also charged them with being affiliated with the MEK. The father and his son are on hunger strike

The Iranian Opposition (The National Council of Resistance of Iran- NCRI) has called on the UN Secretary-General, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and related UN rapporteurs, Amnesty International and all other human rights organizations to take efforts to ensure that all political prisoners in Iran are freed.

It especially wants action taken so that two political prisoners currently on hunger strike can be released.

The two political prisoners in question are Ibrahim Khalil Sedighi Hamedani and his son Salar. They are currently on a hunger strike since Wednesday 25th September after being sentenced to 19 years imprisonment each.

The two men are in Urmia Central Prison in the north-western part of the country.

The health of the two men is of major concern. After twenty days on hunger strike, their blood pressure has dropped to a worrying level and they are exhausted. The father and son have written to the clinic to inform staff that they would no longer be accepting blood pressure tests to be carried out on them.

The official in charge of the jail and the prison warden met with Ibrahim Khalil and his son. They made a number of promises to the men, with the aim of getting them to end their hunger strike, but they failed to follow up and ultimately ignored their concerns.

They have said that they will continue their hunger strike for as long as their demands are not met.

Ibrahim Khalil and his son were accused of being affiliated with the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) The ruling against them is ludicrous and the main opposition to the Iranian regime has raised its concern.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), in a statement, said: “Messrs Ebrahim Sadeqi Hamedani, 60 years old, and his 22-year-old son, Salar Sadeqi Hamedani, went on hunger strike in protest to inhuman treatment and medieval sentences of the mullahs’ regime against them since September 25, 2019”. The NCRI urges the relevant authorities and organizations to urgently establish a fact-finding mission to see how political prisoners in Iran are treated.

The organization emphasizes that the mission must include participation on an international level and political prisoners must be interviewed.

Political prisoners in Iran have been horribly treated for many decades. Dissidents and political opponents are still being arrested, tortured and thrown in jail, simply because they do not agree with the despotic rule of the mullahs.

One of the most violent and shocking events in recent decades is the 1988 massacre in which the country’s Supreme Leader issued a fatwa calling for the execution of political prisoners across the country. It was a truly tragic crime against humanity in which more than 30,000 political prisoners lost their lives, most of whom, were members and sympathizers of the people’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK).

There are renewed calls for justice for the victims of this massacre because the regime is still basking in impunity all these decades later. And worse, some of the officials involved in the 1988 massacre of the MEK members, are now occupying high-level government positions.

Activities of MEK's resistance units2

Activities of MEK's resistance units2

On the anniversary of appointing Mrs. Maryam Rajavi as the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), MEK’s resistance units expand their activities in Iran.

Bellow find a quick look at these activities.

Ilam:

Eastern province of Ilam, resistance units of the MEK hanged two banners of Massoud Rajavi and Maryam Rajavi near Jaghasabz Park. One banner reads: ” Stand up for toppling Velayat-e Faqih’s regime” and the other reads: “Down with Khamenei, Hail to Rajavi”

Tehran:

Members of the MEK’s resistance units in Tehran, the Capital, hanged a banner of Maryam Rajavi in Niavaran Highway. These words appeared on the banner:

Maryam Rajavi: “We can and we must overthrow the Velayat-e Faqih’s regime”

A banner of Maryam Rajavi with the same words was also hung over a bridge in Damavand Highway by another MEK resistance unit in Tehran.

Mashhad:

In Mashhad, a resistance unit of MEK posted a banner of Massoud Rajavi in Honarestan St. The banner reads: “Down with Velayat-e Faqih, Long live Rajavi”

Kerman

Resistance units of MEK hanged a banner of Maryam Rajavi. The banner reads: “Stand up for overthrowing the Velayat-e Faqih regime ”

MEK also reported that resistance units in Isfahan wrote resistance’s slogans on the street walls in this city, such as: “Iran Rajavi, Rajavi Iran”. In the city of Bandar Abbass MEK’s resistance units wrote: ” Democracy, Freedom, with Maryam Rajavi”.

In the city of Qazvin, MEK’s resistance units wrote on the walls: “Down with Khamenei.”

In the Southern city of Hendijan, MEK resistance units destroyed the symbols of the religious fascism ruling Iran.

The multiplication of MEK’s resistance units’ activities spread panic throw the Iranian regime and its officials, so that, they crossed the regime’s red-line, talking about the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) in public. Talking about MEK in State-run TV channels and media is not surprising anymore.

The resistance units of MEK play a crucial role in mobilizing and inspiring people against tyranny in Iran. Torching the symbols of the Iranian regime in public is witnessed more than ever before. Along with protests and gatherings against the regime across the country on a daily basis, activities of resistance units are shaking the dictatorial regime ruling Iran.

The mullahs hopelessly try to prevent a popular uprising and thwart the expansion of resistance units by using internal suppression and external sponsorship of terrorism. They seek to contain the deep-seated anger within the society at their disastrous and inhuman rule. However, their measures are in vain and we are witnessing the expansion of both public protests and activities of the MEK’s resistance units.

MEK- Iran: Uprising, What Mullahs Fear the Most

Demonstration by workers of HEPCO

Last week, Iran witnessed a wave of protests across the country. Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) recorded more than sixty protests and gatherings by workers, teachers, pensioners, people who lost money to credit firms affiliated with the IRGC, farmers, and college students. Even in prisons, political prisoners protested against the inhuman restrictions imposed by suppressive guards.

Workers in Azarab factory, the central city of Arak, demanded their unpaid salaries.

Embers beneath the ashes

Difficult living conditions for the people along with unprecedented corruption and embezzlement, turned the Iranian society to embers beneath the ashes, so that, every single protest or gathering can be turned into social unrest as it happened in Lordegan last week. The majority of the Iranian population’s living under the poverty line is the source of the crises.

Panic spreads to the Iranian regime

After the recent uprisings in Lordegan, Arak, Shush, and Isfahan, the mullahs are afraid of more protests and uprisings, particularly in major cities. They know that every public protest in metropolitan cities can easily spread throughout the country as it happened in December 2018 and January 2019 when 140 cities rose up against the regime.

This panic can be seen in the remarks of Major General Bagheri, General Staff of Armed Forces of the Iranian regime when he said: ” The security of Tehran is constant and stable! It is heartwarming security for the people!” It seems that the uprising in Lordegan as well as other cities across the country, has forced the top security and military officials of the regime to concentrate on the “security of the capital!”

Due to this panic, all security and military forces of the Iranian regime have been on high alert since one month ago in the capital, Tehran, to control and suppress any unpredicted uprising.

Imposing military fury on the society, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is the main surviving tool for the mullahs. Pointing to the key role of IRGC, Khomeini, the founder of this despotic regime once said: “if there was not the IRGC, there wouldn’t be the country (regime)”

The IRGC has always been ready to suppress any uprising inside Iran for decades.

The policy of appeasement, for four decades, and delay in listing the IRGC as a terrorist organization, helped to expand terrorism in the region and the globe. It cannot be forgotten when Mohsen Rafighdoost, the former Minister of the IRGC, referring to the blast of the US NAVY’s base in Lebanon in 1983 said: ” both the ideology and the explosive (of the blast) had gone from Iran.”

It is time to put an end to the destructive policy of appeasement and to recognize the main Iranian opposition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (which includes MEK) as the legitimate and reliable alternative to this terrorist regime. Too much time has already been lost.

Rouhani, President of Mullahs

Rouhani: No Parliamentary Election Was Like the First One; Even MEK Participated

Rouhani, President of Mullahs

Rouhani, President of the Iranian regime, says: No Parliamentary election was like the first one; even MEK participated

Approaching the phony parliamentary election in Iran, Rouhani, President of the mullahs, said last Wednesday in a show style speech:

“You cannot find any Majlis, Parliament in Iran, better than the first one, there was no observation like this, there was no Guardians Council… even the Mujahedin (PMOI/MEK) participated “.

This remark was the starting point of a new war inside the Iranian regime that still continues. This is not the first time Rouhani nagged at the Guardians Council; true, he has never criticized the Guardians Council for the sake of the Iranian people. It is usual, on the occasion of elections, in order to have a bigger share in plundering and looting the people; he starts pretending he is against the Guardians Council.

The Guardians Council is leverage for Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Iranian regime, to omit any candidate who is not in his favor.

Since the foundation of the totalitarian regime of the mullahs, elections have always been a source of a fight inside the regime; every faction seeks its own share of power. Undermining the Guardians Council, Rouhani tries to rock the boat. However, this time the issue is not just the Guardians Council, but the MEK as well, when Rouhani said: “No Parliamentary election was like the first one; even MEK participated.”

Rouhani has always been a top official in this regime. Participating in all suppressions, killings, and crimes against humanity, Rouhani has headed the Secretariat of the Supreme National Security Council for sixteen years. Finding Khamenei weaker than ever and the deep social unrest Rouhani dared to cross the regime’s red-line, talking about the MEK. He is also worried about being pushed aside by Khamenei in the next election.

Miscalculation of Rouhani

After the uprising in January 2018 in Iran, all political equations have deeply changed when Iranians chanted “Reformists, Conservatives, The game is over!”; Rouhani’s deceptions do not work any longer. Public protests on a daily bases across the country are the source of fear for the mullahs. Protests of the population of Lordegan, workers of Arak’s Azarab industry, the population of Isfahan for the shortage of water, are just some examples. People demand to overthrow this regime in its entirety.

There is no doubt, that the only organization that is capable of restoring the people’s right is the MEK, that is the reason why Rouhani as the president of this regime crosses Khamenei’s red line and talks about the MEK.

1988 massacre ceremony in the UK

1988 Massacre of MEK Members And Other Political Prisoners Memorials

1988 massacre ceremony in the UK

Members of Iranian community & families of the victims of the 1988 Massacre in Iran organized an exhibition in front of the UK parliament & called on the UK Government to recognize mass execution of political prisoners as a crime against humanity, October 6, 2019

Supporters of the main opposition to the Iranian regime gathered in several countries to commemorate the victims of the 1899 massacre of political prisoners, mainly Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) members and supporters, in Iran. The gatherings coincided with World Day Against the Death Penalty and there were ceremonies held in the Netherlands and in the United Kingdom.

During the course of summer 1988, the Iranian regime executed more than 30,000 political prisoners – most of whom were supporters or members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK).

More than three decades later, the Iranian regime has still not been held accountable. Some of those involved in carrying out this terrible crime against humanity has even risen through the regime’s ranks, now occupying high-level and senior positions. The country’s justice minister Alireza Avaei and the head of the judiciary Ebrahim Raisi are two such individuals.

Supporters of the Iranian Resistance and the PMOI / MEK in the Netherlands held a ceremony in front of the Dutch parliament in The Hague. They put up an exhibition showing just a few of the regime’s horrific crimes against the people, especially political prisoners, highlighting that the death penalty is used as a way to suppress the people.

Rally against execution in Netherland

MEK supporters held a demonstration in front of the Netherlands ‘ Parliament to commemorate victims of the 1988 Massacre. October 11, 2019

The supporters of the Resistance paid tribute to those that died in 1988 and called for justice for these victims.

Hadi Mozafari who was involved in the organization of the ceremony spoke to the crowds, emphasizing that the policies of appeasement towards this so-called moderate government in Iran must stop. He highlighted that during Rouhani’s time in office, there have been more than 3,800 executions. He and the participants called on the international community to ensure that the regime officials involved in the 1988 massacre are tried in international courts for their crimes.

There was also an exhibition set up in the United Kingdom where supporters of the Resistance gathered in front of parliament. The exhibition included pictures of some of the people that died during the 1988 massacre and it remained in place for 4 days.

Human rights activists, legal experts, and witnesses to the Iranian regime’s crimes and brutality spoke at the event, with the main consensus being that the regime must be held accountable for all of its crimes, especially the 1988 massacre that should not go unpunished for another year.

Tahar Boumedra, a board member of the Justice for Victims of the 1988 Massacre in Iran (JVMI) group and a legal expert, said that the crime the Iranian regime committed 31 years ago is an “atrocious” crime against humanity and the regime’s impunity must end.

A representative of the Iranian communities in London and former political prisoner Reza Fallah said that time has not healed the wounds that that “we will neither forget nor forgive”.

The Iranian regime tried to get rid of the opposition back in 1988, but it has done nothing but make the opposition stronger and more determined to see the regime fall.
