French Mayors and personalities express support for a Free Iran

The French delegation including a dozen distinguished elects and personalities expressed their solidarity with the MEK, and the Iranian resistance for a Free Iran- Ashraf 3, July 13, 2019

The 5-day Free Iran Conference at Ashraf 3, The main compound of the MEK’s members in Albania featured a presentation from the Mayor of Paris’s First District, as well as delegations from Italy, Norway, and the military. Numerous human rights and women’s rights activists also delivered speeches, along with other notable dignitaries.

 

The following are some highlights from speakers:

Michèle de Vaucouleurs

French MP

“The regime has destroyed all that you have owned in Iraq (referring to multiple deadly attacks to Camp Ashraf and Camp Liberty by Iranian proxy forces trying to annihilate MEK, the principal opposition to the dictatorship ruling Iran). You have revived and you keep fighting for a democratic Iran against the mullahs. Your battle is not in vain and I know one day you will be hosting me in a free Iran,” said Ms. de Vaucouleurs.

 

“The French people consider you brothers and sisters. Article 2 of the human rights declaration says that the aim of any political group is human rights and that includes the right to resist oppression,” she concluded.

Jean-François Legaret

Mayor of Paris’s 1st District

Mayor Legaret presented a declaration to Ashraf 3, declaring his municipality and Ashraf 3 sister cities. “We have decided to declare Ashraf 3 a city of international dialogue and a sister city of the 1st Arrondissement of Paris. We want to sign a declaration with the mayor of Ashraf 3,” Mayor Legaret said upon presenting the declaration. “We promise to keep a dialogue between our municipalities and Ashraf 3. I’m happy with all my colleagues to give you this declaration.”

Antonio Tasso

Italian MP

“Iranian brothers and sisters, it is our honor to participate in this meeting to celebrate the freedom of speech and thought,” said Tasso.

Roberto Rampi

Italian Senator

“Your dream is guided by President Maryam Rajavi. I had the honor to meet President Rajavi at the meeting last year and I admire her charisma and Ten-point Plan for a Free Iran,” said Rampi.

Giuseppina Occhionero

Italian MP

“Your martyrs sacrificed their lives in order to achieve freedom for Iran. We cannot have appeasement with such a bloodthirsty regime. We must investigate the Iranian regime’s human rights violations,” said Occhionero.

Marc Ginsburg

Former U.S. Ambassador to Morocco

“I worked for Senator Edward Kennedy who taught me that the challenge of helping the people who fight for freedom is a lifetime goal,” said Ambassador Ginsburg. “We believe that we can help you to achieve what you wish to achieve,” he added.

Dr. Salman Al-Ansari

Founder and President of the Washington D.C.-based Saudi-American Public Relation Affairs Committee

“My message for the rotten Khamenei: We know that you are trying to destroy the will of your people and you hide behind the injustice you do by killing and torturing people. But at the end of the day, the ruling mullahs in Iran will be overthrown,” said Dr. Al-Ansari.

Eduard Lintner

Former German Deputy Interior Minister

“Last year, an Iranian diplomat was arrested in Germany because he wanted to bomb a great event by the Iranian Resistance in Paris in which I personally participated,” Lintner said, referring to last year’s attempted bombing of the Free Iran Rally in Paris. “We should not allow the mullahs to keep us hostage and impede and hinder us in your steps forward.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, you are the ones who continuously fight for a free Iran and Europe must support you. Only in this way can we achieve peace in the world,” said Lintner.

Martin Patzelt

German MP

“To my government: We are not allowed to step back and pretend we are blind for the sake of economic interests. We need to support these people who are showing us what is going on,” said Patzelt.

“To the Iranian regime: Don’t think that you will win. I was raised in Eastern Germany, and I have seen when the people want something, they will prevail. This is the experience of my life and I hope we will achieve this together,” he added.

Missiles Attack on Aramco

Iranian regime planned Saudi attacks long before it happened

Missiles Attack on Aramco

On September 13, 2019, the Saudi Aramco complex was targeted with dozens of missiles coming from Iran’s IRGC.

The attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities was not spontaneous rather it was a strategic and carefully planned decision in the highest echelons of the mullahs’ regime. Now that the dust has somewhat settled, looking back at the attack, the military operation does not fit the Houthis’ description. No doubt Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) fingerprints are all over it.

Hassan Rouhani made it clear in his cabinet meeting on Wednesday that the regime was behind the attack on Aramco oil facilities. He said:

“They attacked an industrial site to warn you (the U.S., Arabic, and European countries) and teach you a lesson.”

Iran Attacks Oil Facilities in Saudi Arabia

Kazem Anbarlooi, an Iranian regime’s strategist with close ties to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei published an article on May 6th

“About Battle Arrangements” in Resalat Daily, a conservative paper giving an advance preview of the upcoming attack on Saudi Arabia. He is a top-notch ideologue in Khamenei corner. Ambarlooi writes: “The key to the Strait of Hormuz and Bab-almandab is in the hands of …the Iranian nation and government.”

“Saudi Arabia and the UAE oil and those who are associated with American conspiracies cannot always be safe. Missile power, drones and … are not the children’s toys and decorative items. If the Americans have no appetite for the fight, there is enough motivation to fight on the other side.” Ambarlooi refers to the regime being ready to fight.

Ambarlooi then threatens the U.S. and adds: “The Americans are better off giving up on their adventures and cut their economic losses and that of the world’s.”

On August 21, Reuters news agency quoted Hassan Rouhani as saying:

“World powers know that in the case that oil is completely sanctioned and Iran’s oil exports are brought down to zero, international waterways can’t have the same security as before.”

Rouhani also added: “So unilateral pressure against Iran can’t be to their advantage and won’t guarantee their security in the region and the world.

In a speech at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), Javad Zarif, the clerical regime’s Foreign Minister appeared to echo Rouhani’s tone.

He said: “Mutual unpredictability will lead to chaos. President Trump cannot expect to be unpredictable and expect others to be predictable. Unpredictability will lead to mutual unpredictability and unpredictability is chaotic.”

Reiterating Iran’s chilly response to the security mission, Iranian Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, a deputy commander of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), said no one can secure the {Persian} Gulf other than Iran and countries of the region,” according to the semi-official Fars news agency.

Soon after the attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil fields and refinery, fingers were pointed at the mullahs’ regime for being behind them. Although IRGC’s proxies in Yemen rushed to claim responsibly hardly anyone took them seriously.

Khamenei gambled the fate of his entire regime by the attacks. He has very limited options at this point. According to his own financial advisers, Iran is a bankrupt state. Not only his coffer does not cover the daily affairs of the country but he has to carry the load of financing his proxies throughout the Middle East.

 What is the logic behind taking such a high risk?

Khamenei gambled his entire regime by taking the risk of losing everything. He is precisely in that situation.

But he was not wrong in counting on those in the West that are still willing to turn a blind eye on his belligerence in the region.

What is the right approach?

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) stated that the attack on a neighboring country’s oil facilities is a major step and a new phase in the warmongering aggressions of the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, adding that exerting pressure and decisiveness is the only language the mullahs understand.

She added inaction only emboldens this medieval regime, whose primary victims are the Iranian people, she noted, emphasizing that the ultimate solution to rid the world of Iran’s ruling religious fascism as the source of all crises in the region is a change of this illegitimate regime by the Iranian people and their organized resistance movement.

Mrs. Rajavi then offered a way out in which the Iranian people and their neighbors are the main beneficiaries. She suggested in her statement:

  • Previous United Nations Security Council resolutions on the mullahs’ nuclear weapons project and the ban on enrichment must be reinstated.
  • Eviction of the regime, its Revolutionary Guards and mercenary militias from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, and Afghanistan is an urgent imperative.
  • The European Union must place Khamenei, his offices, the IRGC and the Ministry of Intelligence on the terrorist watch list.
  • The UN Security Council must refer to the clerical regime’s dossier on human rights abuses and atrocities, especially the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners, mainly MEK member and supporters, to an international court.
  • The world community must recognize the right of the Iranian People’s Resistance to overthrow the ruling theocracy and to attain freedom.

A final word

The Iranian regime will no doubt fall. It is only a matter of time. Iran is boiling in dissent. Resistance Units of the Mujahedin-e Khalq/ People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) riding on the tides of the people’s legitimate wrath against the regime will turn the final page in the mullahs’ regime book.

Honoring International Peace Day

international_day_of_peace

International Peace Day

21st September, recognized as International Peace Day by the United Nations. International days are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems and to celebrate and reinforce the achievements of humanity. The International Days also serve as an indicator of the interest that a given subject attracts in each part of the world. Peace is a concept of societal friendship and harmony in the absence of hostility and violence. In a social sense, peace is commonly used to mean a lack of conflict and freedom from fear of violence between individuals or heterogeneous groups.

The most fatal threat to global peace

Humankind has suffered wars and violence for a long time and historically, peace has been its desire from the beginning. So many lives have perished during non-sense wars and conflicts. Nowadays, despite scattering wars here and there, terrorism is the main threat to global peace.

The Iranian regime is known as the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the modern world. It has a long record of terrorism in the past four decades since its formation in 1979. Bombing the US basis in Lebanon, in Saudi Arabia, explosions in Paris and elsewhere are just a few pages of this horror book. Now, many countries suffer Iranian regime terrorism including Yemen, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, and Afghanistan.

Along with suppression inside the country, terrorism and warmongering policy have been the main factors for its survival. It is worth mentioning that Iranian people in particular and the regional states, as well as the glob, have suffered its terrorism.

What is to be done?

As Secretary-General António Guterres sated

“This is the battle of our lives and a race against time. We can win — and we must.”

There is no doubt that appeasing and compromising terrorists are not the solution, it has been proven times and again. For forty years, the Western Powers sought a moderate mullah; however, the more they sought, the less they found.

The recent missile and drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil industry by the terrorist regime of Iran once again showed that this regime is the source of terrorism and instability in the region and the world. The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, called the attack “Act of War”.

Forty years of experience has proven that the only solution to terrorism is standing firm against the tyranny of terrorists. President-elect of National Council of Resistance, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, in a response to the terrorist act of attacking Aramco oil facility in Saudi said that attack on a neighboring country’s oil installations was a major step and a new phase in the warmongering aggressions of the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, adding that exerting power and decisiveness is the only language the mullahs understand.

She added that inaction only emboldens this medieval regime, whose primary victims are the Iranian people, emphasizing that the ultimate solution to rid the world of Iran’s ruling religious fascism as the source of all crises in the region is a change of this illegitimate regime by the Iranian people and their organized resistance movement.

Paying tribute to the soles fallen for restoring peace in Iran, MEK members and all freedom-loving Iranians, in the anniversary of International Peace Day, we reiterate Madam Rajavi‘s remark that said: “I call on the people of the world to support the Iranian people’s resistance and uprising to overthrow despotism, religious discrimination, and a regime which is the central banker of terrorism and the enemy of peace and freedom in the region and the world.”

Attack on Saudi oil facilities

Iran is behind attacks on Saudi oil facilities

Attack on Saudi oil facilities

Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil refinery was attacked on Saturday, September 13, and more signs indicate Iran’s role

After weeks of making no comments on the most urgent matters of the nation, Khamenei broke his silence and said that there will be no talks with the US unless it repents. The Iranian regime’s leader poured cold water on European relentless efforts to set the stage for a possible meeting between the US President and Hassan Rouhani on the sidelines of UN General Assembly. He said: “Some Europeans [counties] are in the middle of … insisting on having a meeting with the President of the United States, [they] say all your problems will be solved to prove that maximum pressure is a successful policy. On the contrary, we must prove that the policy of maximum pressure is not worth an iota.”  Khamenei’s comments came a day after President Trump said that news of possible talks between him and Rouhani was “fake news.”

Rouhani Should Be Expelled from U.N. General Assembly and Security Council Meetings

From the first minutes after the heavy attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil fields and refinery, fingers pointed at the mullahs’ regime for being behind the attacks. Although his proxies in Yemen rushed to claim responsibly hardly anyone took them seriously.

Khamenei gambled his entire regime by the attacks. He has very limited options at this point. According to his own fanatical experts, Iran is a bankrupt state. Not only his coffer does not cover the daily affairs of the state but he has to carry the load of financing his proxies throughout the Middle East.

Ahmad Zidabadi, a government official points out that this campaign and its promotion are essentially for domestic consumption. “Promoting such a policy is, for the most part, domestic consumption and mainly inspires forces that are sometimes worried about their future,” he wrote. “Attacks on Saudi oil facilities while the US points fingers at Iran, in this case, illustrates the overwhelming security and stability risks in the Gulf region,” Zaidabadi warns. Even now, those factions in the country which have been convinced that the war in the Persian Gulf will not happen are convinced that conflict is possible. ”

Another Iranian regime’s expert, Ali Bigdeli, wrote in the government-run Arman daily that although the regime’s officials did not accept responsibility for the attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities, they warned of the dangerous consequences of such actions. Bigdeli said that the US has already concluded:” Based on the satellite images obtained, we may have new information that Iran was behind it, using bases near the Persian Gulf. “Although we may think the attack was a demonstration of Houthis’ power, it could have unfortunate consequences because it threatens the security of the world.”

What is the logic behind taking such high risk?

No one in its right mind would take such a high risk of being wiped off the map unless his back is against the wall. Khamenei is precisely in that situation.

Although the Iranian regime gambled everything by attacking Saudi oil fields and the world’s largest refinery but it is not entirely wrong in counting on those in the West that are still willing to turn a blind eye on its belligerence in the region.

What is the right approach?

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) stated that the attack on a neighboring country’s oil installations was a major step and a new phase in the warmongering aggressions of the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, adding that exerting power and decisiveness is the only language the mullahs understand.

She added that inaction only emboldens this medieval regime, whose primary victims are the Iranian people, emphasizing that the ultimate solution to rid the world of Iran’s ruling religious fascism as the source of all crises in the region is a change of this illegitimate regime by the Iranian people and their organized resistance movement.

Mrs. Rajavi then offered a way out in which the Iranian people and their neighbors are the main beneficiaries. She suggested in her statement:

  • Previous United Nations Security Council resolutions on the mullahs’ nuclear weapons project and the ban on enrichment must be reinstated.
  • Eviction of the regime, it is Revolutionary Guards and mercenary militias from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, and Afghanistan is an urgent imperative.
  • The European Union must place Khamenei, his offices, the IRGC and the Ministry of Intelligence on the terrorist watch list.
  • The UN Security Council must refer to the clerical regime’s dossier on human rights abuses and atrocities, especially the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners, mainly Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) members, and supporters,  to an international court.
  • The world community must recognize the right of the Iranian People’s Resistance to overthrow the ruling theocracy and attain freedom.

The Iranian regime will no doubt fall, it is only a matter of time.

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

British Praliament

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.

Albanian President, Ilir Meta, meets Iran opposition leader Mrs. Maryam Rajavi in Ashraf 3, home to MEK members, in Albania

On September 13, Albanian President Ilir Meta visited Ashraf 3 in Albania, where over 3,000 members of the Iranian Resistance group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), have been safely relocated from Iraq.

The MEK members welcomed President Meta and Fatmir Mediu, who is chair of the Albanian Republican Party and Meta’s National Security Adviser, with open arms.

During President Meta’s visit, he met with President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) Maryam Rajavi and they toured the exhibition detailing the 120 years of struggle for freedom in Iran. Then, he met with MEK members.

President Meta told the MEK members: “I had no idea about the extent of your sacrifice and the genocide you and your supporter have endured. Having the possibility to see so many people, women and children, massacred was shocking.”

He continued:  “This was also an indication of a widespread movement inside Iran and showed how tyrannical the regime is. This is really bad not only for the people of Iran but also for regional and global peace and stability…I was very impressed with the Ten-point Plan of Mrs. Rajavi because it is based on fundamental freedoms and will guarantee prosperity and democracy for the Iranian people. All of us here in Albania are united in our support for your efforts and determination.

Albanian President and Maryam Rajavi

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi gives the book of martyrs of MEK to the President of Albania

These comments were, of course, welcomed by Rajavi, who said that the Iranian people will never forget Albania’s hospitality towards the MEK. She then praised Albania’s decisiveness over the Iranian Regime, most notably expelling the Regime’s ambassador for his involvement in terrorism. She said that Albania serves as a role model for other countries in this regard.

Rajavi then reiterated a fact that should no longer need to be underscored; that the Iranian Regime cannot be reformed and appeasement does not work. In fact, appeasing religious dictatorship only encourages more terrorism and fundamentalism. She stated that regime change by the Iranian people and the Iranian Resistance is the only way to achieve regional and international peace and stability.

Before leaving, President Meta signed the guest book in memoriam of the Iranian Resistance’s martyrs’ at the exhibition.

He wrote: “It was an extraordinary experience for me to become acquainted with the unimaginable sacrifices for freedom and social justice of this movement… We will be proud that we did our best for you to enjoy freedom. Until then, this will be your home.

Iranian rally against Rouhani

MEK Supporters to Protest Rouhani in New York

 

Iranian rally against Rouhani

Iran-American protesters, supporters of the MEK, Rally in New York, upon Hassan Rouhani’s visit to the United Nations. The sign reads “Yes to Change in Iran, No to Rouhani”- September 2017

MEK supporters are holding a demonstration in protest of Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani in New York next Tuesday, September 24th. The “No to Rouhani” demonstration will call attention to Rouhani’s leadership role in a regime that is the number one state sponsor of terrorism and holds the record for the highest number of executions per capita.

The United Nations General Assembly is meeting in New York from September 17-September 30. The organizers of the “No to Rouhani” protest argue that the leader of the oppressive Iranian regime has no place at the U.N. during this year’s General Assembly.

An Aggressive and Brutal Regime

The Iranian regime has escalated its crackdown on all forms of dissent in the wake of growing social unrest across the country. Its notoriously brutal and inhumane prisons are overcrowded, and the number of executions has increased. Public executions and executions of juvenile offenders are common. Political prisoners and detainees are subject to torture, sometimes to the point of death. Lifesaving medical treatment is routinely denied to prisoners, particularly political prisoners.

Meanwhile, the regime has responded to sanctions with increasing aggression, further isolating itself from the international community. It continues to support terrorist proxy groups and fund regional wars that destabilize the region, and it has launched a series of attacks on vessels in the Strait of Hormuz. The Iranian regime has also reneged on its commitments under the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and redoubled its efforts to create nuclear weapons.

Rouhani Should Be Expelled from U.N. General Assembly and Security Council Meetings

The MEK supporters organizing the “No to Rouhani” demonstration believe that Rouhani, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and regime Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif should be sanctioned for these crimes. They also believe that Rouhani should face an international tribunal for his role in crimes committed by the religious fascism ruling Iran.

The “No to Rouhani” demonstration is an extension of the anti-regime protests taking place across Iran on a daily basis. The Iranian people are crying out for freedom from the mullahs’ tyrannical rule, and they are ready to launch a new uprising with the leadership of the MEK Resistance Units. The goal of the uprising will be to overthrow the mullahs’ regime and replace it with a secular democracy in Iran.

A Paper Tiger

National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) President-elect Mrs. Maryam Rajavi discussed the mission of the MEK and the Iranian Resistance in a speech at the Washington, D.C. Free Iran Rally on June 21, 2019:

“… above and beyond anything else, the mullahs are most fearful of change at the hands of the Iranian people, the Iranian Resistance and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK).

“It is right at this point that it becomes clear that the religious dictatorship is a paper tiger when it comes to facing off with the Iranian Resistance. And its fate is no different from the fate of the Shah’s dictatorship. This is the verdict of history and the yearning of the people of Iran. Yes, freedom will prevail over the Shah and the Sheikh (mullahs),” she said.

“The regime is getting weaker by the day, and with every passing day, it gets a step closer to its downfall. Consequently, all of us bear heavier responsibilities. This is the time for us to be on alert.

“Without a doubt, the faltering mullahs’ dictatorship cannot withstand our nation’s resistance, uprisings, and the great Army of Freedom,” she stressed.

“The time has come to rise. In such circumstances, our country Iran needs us to rise to our national duty more than ever before in order to rid our homeland of the hideous mullahs’ regime,” Mrs. Rajavi emphasized.

Members of the Voice of Iranian Women Association are facing increasing pressure from the regime’s judiciary and intelligence agencies, largely due to their participation in International Women’s Day gatherings earlier this year. They are facing a number of charges for their peaceful activism, including “promoting corruption and prostitution,” “formation of the Iranian Women Association,” “association and collusion against national security,” and “propaganda against the state.” The group’s members are currently either imprisoned and waiting in limbo or enduring escalating pressure from the regime’s judiciary and intelligence ministry.

Hosseinzadeh is a graduate student in Anthropology, a member of Voice of Iranian Women Association, and the Secretary of the Student Central Council at Tehran University. She was also part of the International Women’s Day gathering in Tehran this spring and is currently serving a 30-month sentence in Evin Prison. She was convicted of “association and collusion against national security” and “propaganda against the state” on June 24, 2019, for participating in the peaceful rally for women’s rights. Hosseinzadeh will also be banned from leaving Iran for two years after the completion of her sentence

The new charge stems from her participation in a January 2019 birthday ceremony for another imprisoned student outside the Industrial Sharif University in Tehran.

Condemnation from the MEK

The Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) strongly condemns the oppression of women under the misogynistic regime. The MEK and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) are committed to ending the twisted laws that silence women and force them into submission. The Iranian Resistance has women at the highest levels of leadership, with Mrs. Maryam Rajavi as its leader, because it recognizes that as the primary victims of the regime’s oppression, women are its strongest opponents.

The Iranian Regime has denied basic human rights to the Iranian people, especially women, for 40 years now, but the pro-democracy movement has remained strong and active, despite vicious reactions by the Regime.

On occasion, this resistance has been visible to the world, such as for the 2009 protests against the rigged election and the nationwide uprising in January 2018. In every uprising, protest, and pro-democracy movement, women have been at the forefront and, according to women’s rights advocate Dr. Maria Ryan, that is no accident.

She wrote for The Hill on Thursday, September 12, 2019, that the mullahs have targeted Iranian women with “repressive, misogynistic laws and execution”, explaining that a female soccer fan died from self-immolation last week because she expected to be jailed for attending a football match.

Ryan spoke at the annual conference of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in July, at Ashraf 3, the new home of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK), during a panel entitled “Women in the Iranian Resistance: Defying the Misogynist Regime, Paying the Price of Freedom”.

Ryan wrote of that event: “I met many brave women who survived the mullahs’ brutal crackdown. Many said they had suffered in torture chambers for long years. They shared their stories with me, their personal suffering and the loss of loved ones.”

She continued: “They explained that, while living in Iran, they were not able to choose their own clothes or their professions; a girl as young as nine years old could be married, they said, and a man could have multiple wives. They were forced to leave Iran and were promised safety in camps inside Iraq, they recounted to me, only to be targeted by bombs and gunfire. Several of them said they lost many of their friends to these attacks.”

Ryan said that daily life had become so difficult for many Iranians that growing numbers are turning to drugs to dull the pain or selling their organs to make ends meet. She said that, despite this, the women she met “inspired” her with their “determination, loyalty, patriotism and faith”.

She explained that the NCRI and its members want basic freedoms and are preparing to serve as an interim government if the Iranian people overthrow the mullahs.

Ryan said: “Whether or not you believe that regime change in Iran is truly just around the corner, I am absolutely convinced that with such women in the ranks of the resistance, the change will come to Iran.”

Iran HRM August Report Reveals Details Crackdown on Activists

Violation of human rights in Iran

Last week, Iran Human Rights Monitor released its monthly report, detailing the Iranian regime’s human rights violations. During the month of August, the regime imposed heavy sentences on participants in the country’s Labor Day protest, striking workers from the Haft Tappeh Sugarcane Factory, and civil rights activists. Last month, more than 31 activists, workers, and journalists were sentenced to prison and lashes for their participation in protests.

Labor Day Protesters

Researcher Atefeh Rangiz was sentenced to 11 years, six months in prison and 74 lashes.

Journalist Marzieh Amiri was sentenced to 10 years, six months of prison and 148 lashes. She will serve six years of her term.

Nasrin Javadi was sentenced to 7 years in prison and 74 lashes.

A bus driver and member of the Syndicate of Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company Rasoul Taleb Moghadam was sentenced to 74 lashes, two years of prison, two years of exile, and a two-year ban on using smartphones.

Vice-president of the Free Union of Iranian Workers Parvin Mohammadi was sentenced to one year in prison

Labor Activist Azarm Khezri (Nasrin Javadi), was sentenced to seven years of prison and 74 lashes. She will serve five years of her term.

Labor activist Farhad Sheikhi was sentenced to four months of prison and 5 lashes. His sentence was suspended for two years.

Haft Tappeh Protesters

On August 13, seven Haft Tappeh Sugarcane Factory workers were given eight-month suspended prison sentences and 30 lashes each for participating in last year’s workers’ strikes.

On August 14, nine more workers from the same factory were sentenced to eight months in prison and 30 lashes. Another worker was acquitted.

The MEK covered the Haft Tappeh worker strikes last year extensively.

Pensioners & Teachers take it to the streets in Tehran and Isfahan

Hundreds of pensioners and teachers gathered in Tehran and Isfahan asking for their pensions. The protesters also called for the release of their fellow activists that had been imprisoned during the previous protests. August 26, 2019

Other Activists

Mohammad Taghi Falahi, head of the Tehran Teachers’ Association, was sentenced to eight months in prison and ten lashes for participating in a protest on Iran’s National Teachers’ Day. His sentence has been suspended for three years.

Women’s rights activist Saba Kord Afshari was sentenced to 24 years in prison for protesting the mandatory veiling laws and refusing to make a false confession.

Satirist Keyomars Marzban was sentenced to 23.3 years in prison for working for foreign media outlets.

Executions

At least 41 people were executed by the regime in August. Two of these executions took place in public. The actual number of executions is likely much higher, as the regime is known for carrying out its executions in secret.

Denial of Medical Treatment to Prisoners

Political prisoner Majid Assadi has been denied treatment for his Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and has not been provided access to a physician for the last year. In September 2018, doctors additionally diagnosed Assadi with ulcers and intestinal inflammation, but he is not receiving medical care for any of his conditions.

Political prisoner Arash Sadeghi is being denied critical care for cancer. He received surgery in September 2018 to remove cancer but developed a postoperative infection after being immediately returned to prison. Without proper care, his arm has become paralyzed and swollen. Prison officials have refused to allow Sadeghi to return to the hospital to seek further bone marrow tests to see if his cancer has spread or to have additional, life-saving chemotherapy treatments. Amnesty International condemned the regime’s treatment of Sadeghi as torture.

The NCRI and MEK condemn the regime’s human rights abuses and encourages all Iranians to support those who are protesting against the regime. The regime’s abuses will end when Iran is free.
