MEK : Consequences of Mullahs’ rule: Poverty and misery

After four decades of the ruling, unemployment, corruption, embezzlement and many other social disasters have been the souvenirs of the mullahs for the Iranian people. Structural economic crisis, a staggering rate of military and security expenses, plundering of the population, water-shortage, destruction of the environment and …. have made a black hole of poverty, homelessness, and misery for the Iranian people. The minimum wage is at least less than one-fourth of the poverty line. Minimum needs, even a loaf of bread, are no longer on the people’s table.

In the first place, dictators annihilate democracy so that they can plunder the people and destroy the economy. This is the roadmap chosen by the religious dictatorial regime in Iran since its formation.

On 16 April 2019, Rezaie, Iranian MP, acknowledged in the regime’s parliament that people are furious about discrimination, injustice and more lies. He added that how do you expect teachers to educate our children while they are paid five to seven dollars a day?  He compared the condition of workers with slaves.

Controlling the situation, the mullahs, as usual, resort to intimidation, imprisonment, torture, and long term sentences. Arresting labor activists, teachers, defiant youth, and … are the tools that mullahs use to curb opposition movements. In response to this catastrophic situation, the people have no other option but to resist a decent and better life. Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) resistance units are mobilizing people to restore their rights.

IRGC Commander, Hussein Rahimi, acknowledged that from March 2018 to January 2019, during nine months, there have been 923 protest gatherings just in the capital, Tehran. Another IRGC commander from the province of Khuzestan also admitted there had been 650 protests by workers in this period of time in this Southern province.

Last year the Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and also the MEK’s networks inside Iran covered the news of protest movements, daily gatherings, and strikes of workers, farmers, particularly in Isfahan, teachers, pensioners, nurses, and looted people by credit firms affiliated to IRGC. MEK reported that in the one month period of 22 June to 22 July 2019there had been 267 protests in different cities, villages, and industrial districts in Iran; that is nine protests a day. MEK resistance units played a key role to form and direct those growing protests.

 

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of NCRI, said in this regard:

“Expand the resistance units in all schools and universities. Turn every school into a resistance unit, every college into a resistance unit, and every Iranian city into a resistance city. Freedom and victory are in your hands!”

Protest of HEPCO's workers

Iranian Regime Faces Ever Growing Workers Protest

Protest of HEPCO's workers

The mullahs’ regime is cornered by many problems in Iran. Some are scarier than others for the theocratic regime. Workers’ protests and strikes areas such. In the most recent labor unrest in Iran’s industrial heartland, Arak, in central Iran, Azarab Company workers protest for the familiar demands; unpaid wages and the return of the company to the public sector. The mullahs’ regime’s scheme in the last two decades against the working class has been a suppressive plan of forced privatization of oldest industries such as Hepco and Azarab in Iran. But what is even more cynical is that the clerical regime has tried to kill two birds with one stone. It wants to escape the responsibilities of the government toward Iran’s working community such as guaranteed wages and insurance and aims at breaking up the oldest labor unions formed in such industries for more than 40 years in Iran.

In Azarab, for example, private management is downsizing the personnel. What the mullahs’ regime has done is putting a multimillion-dollar company on sale for a fraction of its real market value. The bid usually goes to former Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) commanders or their families. By doing so the regime has two goals; one is gradually killing the company and secondly prevent the labor unions from taking shape. In the case of Azarab and Hepco they share the same fate. The Iranian regime has followed the same road)map for both industrial companies. The workers’ major demand aside from back pays is preventing the gradual closure of the company.

Azarab workers protested for three days outside the company’s plant in Arak. The anti-riot units of the IRGC were called in to turn the protesters away. But they stood their grounds and pushed them back.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), hailed the brave workers of Azarab for not abandoning their protests despite the suppressive measures and threats by the mullahs’ regime. She said that the ruling religious fascism in Iran responds to the enraged citizens only with tear gas, beatings, arrests, medieval trials, and long prison terms. But oppression and injustice will crumble in the face of the heroic workers’ resolve.

The Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) also welcomed the Azarab’s workers for their bravery in standing up for their rights.

Background:

On October 8, 2019, for the third consecutive day, the protest gathering of Azarab’s workers continued. On Sunday, October 6, 2019, workers of Azarab Company had organized a gathering on the Tehran-Arak highway to protest the sale of the company and to demand their unpaid wages. They closed the main square at the city’s entrance.

A day before, on October 7, the workers had gathered and marched outside the company. The Revolutionary Guards’ anti-riot units attacked them by firing tear gas into the crowd. They blocked the demonstrators from entering the city fearing that the youths might join the protesting workers.

Despite yesterday’s brutal attacks, the workers gathered outside the company’s building again. The suppressive forces blocked the demonstrators from reaching San’at Square and entering the city.

1988 massacre

End the Impunity for Those Who Carried Out 1988 Iran Massacre

1988 massacre

In 1988, 30,000 political prisoners of MEK members were summarily executed in Iran on the Fatwa of Regime Founder Ruhollah Khomeini

In the summer of 1988, 30,000 political prisoners were summarily executed in Iran on the Fatwa of Regime Founder Ruhollah Khomeini for their support of the opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK). For over 30 years, the families of the victims have sought answers, but were routinely silenced by the Regime, even executed themselves on some occasions, and ignored by the world.

In 2016, a justice-seeking movement was established to end the mullahs’ impunity and prevent something like this from happening again. The movement is demanding the names of the victims, the locations of their graves, identification of perpetrators, and prosecution of those responsible for this crime against humanity.

Now, there has been some condemnation of the massacre by governing bodies, after survivors and witnesses testified and especially following the release of a 1988 audio file of then Khomeini’s heir Hossein Ali Montazeri criticizing the massacre as “the greatest crime committed in the Islamic Republic [for which] history will condemn us”. But still, the perpetrators remain free, with many still serving in the Regime, including head of the judiciary Ebrahim Raisi, minister of justice Alireza Avaei, head of the Supreme Disciplinary Court for Judges Hossein Ali Nayyeri,  and member of the Assembly of Experts Mohammad Hossein Ahmadi.

These officials have openly defended the massacre, with former justice minister Mostafa Pour Mohammadi even claiming he was “proud” to carry out the massacre and would do so again. The Regime has also seen fit to destroy evidence, like mass graves, in order to evade international investigations, should one ever come to pass.

Geoffrey Ronald Robertson

Geoffrey Ronald Robertson AO, QC is a human rights barrister, academic, author and broadcaster.

It is clear that there should be international action to hold the perpetrators of the 1988 massacre responsible and end their impunity for what human rights barrister Geoffrey Robertson QC described as

“one of the biggest human carnages since World War II”.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) wrote:

“In light of the new evidence and information surfaced since 2016 when the Call-for-Justice movement emerged, and the admissions made by the clerical regime’s officials defending the massacre, the time has come for the international community to break its 30-year silence and end three decades of impunity for the clerical regime leaders in Iran.”

They advised that it is time for the United Nations to launch an independent investigation into this crime against humanity and for the dossier of human rights violations in Iran, particularly the executions of the 1980s, to be referred to the UN Security Council.

MEK protests in US againest Rouhani

West Should Support MEK Amid Rising Tensions With Iran

MEK supporters protest in the US objecting Rouhani's presence at the UNGA- New York- September 24, 2019

Thousands of MEK supporters rally in New York, condemning the Iranian regime’s president’s presence at the United Nations General Assembly. September 24, 2019

Over the past two years, tensions have risen significantly between Iran and the international community, given the Iranian regime’s malign behavior and spread of terrorism in the region, the advancement of its ICBM, and the gross violations of human rights inside Iran.

Now, many are recommending that the US and the EU start to recognize the Iranian people’s democratic resistance, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK), as the true representatives of the Iranian people.

The US has taken major steps against the Regime, including pulling out of the malign nuclear deal, but Europe has continued to try and preserve the deal in order to keep trading with Iran, but this shelters the Regime. The US has also decided to designate the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and its commanders as terrorists while levying massive sanctions against Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei and minister of foreign affairs Javad Zarif. However, neither the US or the EU have officially recognized the MEK as they should do, because the MEK will overthrow the Regime and bring peace to the world.

U.S. Imposes Sanctions on Regime Foreign Minister Javad Zarif

Not only would supporting the MEK be good for the world, but also for the Iranian people, who are in favor of the MEK. After all, the nationwide uprising in 2017 and 2018 was led by the MEK. How could the MEK have led protests if they weren’t popular? Not to mention that MEK-inspired youths have been torching pro-regime symbols.

These protests, between September 22 and 27, also occurred on the anniversary of the 1981 protests, when MEK members burned large posters of then-Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini.

The Regime knows this, of course, which is why they spend so much time trying to eradicate the MEK. In 2018 alone, the Regime attempted to carry out two terror plots against the MEK; one in Paris, where the MEK held their annual gathering, and one in Albania, at the MEK headquarters.

The MEK is the main alternative for regime change in Iran and has a strong network of resistance units inside the country. The MEK has been recognized by Ilir Meta, the President of Albania, and has long been a great source of vital intelligence on the Regime for the West.

The EU and the US must recognize the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) as the viable alternative to the ruling dictatorship if they want to side with the Iranian people and in order to preserve peace in the region.

High inflation in Iran

MEK: A Dead End for Clerical Regime

High inflation in Iran

High inflation in the mullahs’ regime has lead to a deep crisis

Iran is in a deep crisis. The mullahs’ regime no longer is able to stop the downward spiral. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei is not in control and has no clue in solving the overwhelming problems. The theocratic regime is living in browed time.

The Iranian regime president, Hassan Rouhani is not in better shape and returned home from his controversial trip to UN General Assembly empty-handed. Accelerating course of events in the country point to a dark future for the clerical regime. The country is boiling in dissent and everyday citizens turn up outside government buildings following their demands.

Inflations running at a record high in Iran

Inflations are running at a record high and far exceeding the International Monetary Fund’s estimates for this year. The Iranian Regime’s Statistical Center has announced on September 24 that the rate of inflation in Iran has reached 42.7 percent during the 12 months ending on August 23. This is nearly 3 percent higher than the IMF forecast in April. All figures projected by the Iranian regime must be taken with a grain of salt since most are manipulated for internal consumption.

Nevertheless, they speak volumes when it comes to project the public’s discontent with the regime. Teachers, workers, farmers, truckers, merchants, inverters with heavy losses for saving their money in the banks run by the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) protest on different occasions.

MEK Network: At Least 177 Protests in Iran During August

It is for the first time in the mullahs’ regime history that it has hit the absolute rock bottom. None of its factions will win any popularity contest even among their strongholds.

None of the regime’s factions will be around if a democratic election

Saeed Hajarian, a well-known regime strategist and one of the former architects of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) told the state-run Sazandegi in August:” If there would be such time that the glass ceiling is lifted, like democratic countries and a fair election is held, then, there will no longer be a “reformist or a conservative camp left in Iran.” What he simply meant is that none of the regime’s factions will be around anymore if there will be a democratic election.

Will the regime be able to last until the U.S. Presidential election? Something the mullahs have pinned their hopes on. Is it possible to stop the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) Resistance Units from expanding? Is regime capable to turn the clock back and stop the explosive state of the society?

Ahamd Alam-alhoda, regime’s Friday Prayer leader in Mashhad, and one of Khamenei’s close confidants answers the questions. He said on December 28, 2018: “Sedition of 2009 is behind us what concerns me is new sedition for 2019. The enemy is planning for it. Economic problems and social unrest are the recipes for disaster. These are the means by which they attack the leadership.”

What really is happening under the skin of Iranian society is plain and simple. The people cannot take it anymore and the mullahs’ no longer have the ability to completely suppress the citizens.

New Acts of Defiance by the MEK Resistance Units

Social unrest plus high inflation and the mullahs’ regime failure in providing absolute necessities of daily life for people has brought it to its knees. The MEK’s Resistance Units and Resistance Councils activities in Iran have opened a window of hope and an opportunity for restless people fed-up with the theoretic regime. The final blow will be delivered with these two forces combined in Iran; the people with support from MEK.

Khamenei’s back against the wall

Archive Photo- The Iranian regime security forces attack protesters during a demonstration – January 2018

Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei admits in his meeting with the members of Assembly of Experts that his regime is in crisis. Referring to the constant danger which threatens his regime, he reminded the members of the importance of loyal forces and said:

“With labels such as hardliners or extremists, the most loyal forces should not be turned away. They are the ones that stand to the last minute. In seditions of 2009 and then again 2018, they were the ones who stopped the enemy.” He added: “I have told the past presidents to use these forces that are loyal to the cause of revolution. Those are the ones that hold the grounds.”

Khamenei refers to well-fed plain-clothes thugs, agents of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) that are ready to kill in cold blood for his regime. They opened fire into the crowd both in 2009 and then 2018. Many young men and women were arrested, tortured, and killed by the same security forces in MOIS secret safe houses.

In clear factional fighting, Khamenei picked on Rouhani for his lack of spine in what he called “facing the enemy.” However, he admitted that loss of morals is not limited to Rouhani’s faction and it is somewhat contagious in his regime. But Khamenei made sure not to cross any lines which might inflame the society’s powder keg.

He then tried to caution his regime’s officials in general of the danger from a restless society. Khamenei tried to give the other mullahs’ hope while warning them of what lies ahead.

In reverse psychology, Khamenei told his audience that it’s the U.S. and Europe that are in financial and social crisis. He also shed crocodile tears for people in the west with no freedom.

Khamenei’s speech was also a confirmation that mediation between his regime and the U.S. by the Europeans has a failure. He said: “On the surface, it appears that the Europeans mediate. They talk a lot but all of it amounts to nothing. The EU countries, despite their claims, remained true to their U.S. allies.” He added: “There is no difference between them and the U.S.”

Khamenei’s back is against the wall. He prefers talking to confrontation, but on his terms. The regime’s supreme leader knows that the EU’s patience is wearing thin with the regime’s maneuvers and there is very little room left in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) deal for going back on commitments. Federica Mogherini, the EU foreign policy chief said that keeping JCPOA “is becoming increasingly difficult.”

The main Iranian opposition has been an internal factor and an existential threat looming on the horizon for the regime.  Since January 2018 and start of uprisings in more than 140 cities that shook the regime to its core, Khamenei has maintained that the mullahs’ regime barely survived. He has put the blame squarely on the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

UEFA, asks member clubs and teams to ban playing in countries that deny full access to women in their stadiums

Women football star lashed out at mullahs’ regime

UEFA, asks member clubs and teams to ban playing in countries that deny full access to women in their stadiums

UEFA, European football’s governing organization said on Tuesday that it would ask member clubs and national teams not to play matches in countries where women are abandoned the right to access the stadiums. This is after Sahar Khodayari, a football fan was arrested and persecuted for trying to attend a football game in Iran. She later set herself alight after receiving the inhumane imprison sentence for trying to attend the match-September 2019

Ms. Megan Rapinoe, U.S. women’s soccer star received FIFA’s best woman player of the year in Italy on Monday, September 23rd. Rapinoe paid tribute to Sahar Khodayari dubbed as the “Blue Girl” for her courage of standing to the Iranian regime. She called Sahar as a source of inspiration.

Similar remarks were made about Sahar by many women soccer players, including the members of Germany, Italy, and Sweden’s national teams.

FIFA’s president, Gianni Infantino has said that he hopes the Iranian regime would end the unacceptable situation by the start of World Cup games on September 19th.

The “Blue Girl” with her death echoed the Iranian women’s struggle against mullahs’ misogynic regime. Iranian women are not only banned from participating in many social events such as watching football matches in stadiums, but they are unofficially considered second class citizens by the ruling mullahs in Iran.

Sahar was arrested in March for attempting to enter Azadi Stadium. A judiciary official said she was charged with “insulting the public by defying the dress code for women,” and “insulting the law enforcement agents.”

Her sister told the state-run ROKNA news agency, “Security forces noticed my sister as she was attempting to walk into the stadium. When she resisted, they arrested her.”

She adds: “After my sister was sent to (Qarchak) Prison in Varamin, she was badly terrified and hurt emotionally until being freed on bail. Then she went to the courthouse to take back her cellphone. There, something happened, and she overheard that she must stay in prison for six months. My sister set herself on fire and is now in hospital in dire conditions.”

European football’s governing body (UEFA) said on Tuesday it would tell member clubs and national teams not to play games in countries where women do not have full access to stadiums.

This situation rapidly turns every social problem that stems from the mullahs’ tyranny into a crisis for the regime. As an example, the self-immolation of Sahar Khodayari in protest to her arrest for trying to enter the Azadi Stadium to watch a soccer match. Her tragic death rapidly turned into a vast social issue, forcing the mullahs to take a position. In their most recent sermons, the regime’s Friday prayers leaders have echoed the regime’s panic and fear of social discontent which could erupt at any moment. The regime’s nightmare, as it has been repeated by its supreme leader Ali Khamenei are the Mojahedin -e Khalq (MEK) and their resistance units.

The Iranian regime is against dissident athletes. Case in point is the captain of Iran’s national soccer team Habib Khabiri executed in 1983.

Khabiri was Iran national football team’s captain in 1979. He played center back. “Habib a genius in Iran’s football at the time,” says Hassan Naebagha, formerly Khabiri’s teammate and colleague and now a member of the NCRI, adding “he was the best Asian player of his time. He was a two-footed player who, despite being relatively short, could win every one-on-one battle thanks to his athletic ‘little Hercules’ body.”

Habib Khabiri was arrested in 1983 by the mullahs’ oppressive regime. Putting Khabrir under extensive tortures and pressures to break him down in front of Khomeini’s TV cameras, the regime eventually executed him by firing squad on June 21, 1984, for his supporting the PMOI/MEK.

They can act as a strong catalyst turning social unrest into a widespread uprising. It happened in January 2018 and it can happen anytime.

No to Ruhani – Thousands of Iranians Reject the Mullahs’ President’s Presence in the UN

Iranians rally in NY

The Iranian diaspora in the US gathered in front of the UN, protesting against the presence of Ruhani, President of the Iranian regime, Sep 24, 2019

Along with the UN General Assembly in New York, thousands of Iranians staged a demonstration across the street from the UN headquarters to protest the presence of Hassan Ruhani, the president of the mullahs’ regime.

Participants condemned the policy of fueling regional wars and terrorism. They stressed that this regime must be decisively dealt with and Ruhani be excluded from the United Nations Headquarters.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran’s President-elect Maryam Rajavi sent a video message to the Iranians gathered in front of the UN headquarters in New York. She affirmed in her message:

“Your gathering is a NO to the continued power of a handful of occupiers and criminals in Iran and YES to the overthrow of this regime by the Iranian people and the Iranian resistance.

You represent the voice of protest and resistance of the Iranian people.

The centers of revolt and the resistance councils, whose courageous activities throughout Iran have kept the flames of the uprising and protest on the rise. After the Iranian regime targeted Saudi Arabia’s oil installations with missiles and drones from inside Iran a few days ago, the real question before the international community is no longer the party that launched the attack. It is necessary to adopt a firm and comprehensive policy towards this regime. Ruhani, the so-called moderate president of this authoritarian regime, has tacitly stated his support for this provocative act. Khamenei’s representative in Mashhad also confirmed the link to the attack by the mullahs, saying that Ansar Allah in Yemen and all the armed militias of the regime in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Palestine all represent the Iranian regime. Khamenei himself, after the attack on Saudi Arabia, stipulated that any negotiations at any level with the United States should be conducted with the latter’s repentance. So what is the rhetoric of those who promote the policy of appeasing the ruling killers in Iran? The UN Security Council must declare the Iranian regime a threat to world peace and security. We call on all States to participate in the establishment of an international front against religious fascism. The international community must recognize the right of the Iranian people to overthrow the religious fascism and to achieve freedom.”

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said in his speech:

“The Iranian resistance can govern Iran in an unprecedented way from the regime of terrorism to a democratic and free system under the leadership of Maryam Rajavi, a system that ends the death penalty and restores respect for women’s rights! Look what Mrs. Rajavi has done. The transition from a dictatorship to democracy will lead within six months. Mrs. Rajavi is a great woman.”

“The attacks of the Iranian regime are continuing. Our policies will not change the behavior of the regime. It is regime change that can end the bloodshed in the Middle East,” Giuliani added.

In her speech, Sona Samsami, representative of the National Council of Resistance of Iran in the United States, called on the member states of the United Nations to impose comprehensive sanctions on the regime for gross violations of human rights and the continuation of the nuclear and missile program and creating chaos in the Middle East. In their slogans and banners, the demonstrators stressed that Iran’s seats in the United Nations should be given to the just resistance of the Iranian people and the democratic alternative of the National Council of Resistance, and the right of the Iranian people to resist and topple the inhuman dictatorship of the mullahs be formally recognized.

Former US Senator Joseph Lieberman said to demonstrators:

“You are appealing for a free Iran. I want to tell you today that there is a force that the Iranian regime is more afraid of than any foreign military attack. It is the power of the Iranian people, the Iranian resistance and the MEK. Any military attack against the regime will damage the regime and the Quds force, but it will not lead to the fall of the regime. The overthrow will take place by the hands of the people and by the hands of the Iranian resistance.”

Former US Senator Robert Torricelli said in his speech: “We are united as a global entity and we will change the regime and bring freedom to the Iranians.”The Syrian opposition coalition participated in the demonstration, to support the Iranian resistance and to stand by a free and non-nuclear Iran in peace with its neighbors.

The demonstrators declared their full support and solidarity with the protests and the centers of revolt in Iran in their quest to overthrow the regime and achieve freedom and the establishment of a system of government representing the people in Iran.

British MPs condemn Iran’s  IRGC and MOIS in Early Day Motion

MPs at the United Kingdom Parliament raise attention about the IRGC

Cross-party MPs at the United Kingdom Parliament have used an Early Day Motion to raise attention about the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and their role in the suppression of the Iranian people.

EDM 2333 strongly condemns the IRGC’s role in oppressing the Iranian people, particularly during anti-government protests, and describes the IRGC as a serious threat to the security, freedom, and welfare of the Iranian people, as well as the peace and stability in the Middle East and the world at large.

The British MPs emphasized that the IRGC and the mullahs’ Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) are destructive and terrorist actors, citing a long history of their deadly operations, export of terrorism, murder of foreign nationals, and assassination of Iranian dissidents, particularly members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

One case they cited to demonstrate this was the foiled bomb plot against the NCRI’s annual “Free Iran” grand gathering in Paris on June 2018, where 100,000 gathered to support the 10-point plan of NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi to bring freedom to Iran.

The British MPs called on their government to blacklist the IRGC and the MOIS as a foreign terrorist organization, something they say is in the best interests of the Iranian people, the UK, and the international community.

Bob Blackman, the primary sponsor of EDM 2333 and a major supporter of the MEK and NCRI, said in a statement: “The IRGC and MOIS stand at the center of regime’s domestic crackdown and efforts to create an international crisis with increased aggression in the region and terrorism in Europe as the popular protests across Iran that began last year are undermining the theocracy’s survival.”

Sir David Amess, co-chair of the British Committee for Iran Freedom (BCFIF), said: “The EDM, which many of my cross-party colleagues in the House of Commons and I supported, backs the call by NCRI President-elect Mrs. Maryam Rajavi for the designation of IRGC and MOIS as terrorist entities and calls on the Government to proscribe these repressive organs as foreign terrorist organizations in their entirety.”

It is time for the British government and the European Union to listen to these MPs and the Iranian people and take a firm policy against the Regime by imposing sanctions on the IRGC and MOIS, especially given the role of these groups in taking hostage British citizen Nazanin Zaghari-Radcliffe and seizing a British oil tanker in international waters. It is right that they support the Iranian people’s uprising and their organized Resistance.
