Maryam Rajavi: Regime Has Reached the End of the Line

Maryam Rajavi

Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) sent a message on Iran uprising- November 2019

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), addressed the “rebellious people and youths in 144 rebellious cities” in Iran in a November 20th message on her website. She saluted the more than 200 martyrs of the uprising, “who gave their lives to welcome the angel of freedom. We praise their passionate and loving hearts that stopped beating to enable the heart of Iran uprising to continue beating for the advent of freedom,” she said.

Mrs. Rajavi also delivered words of support and encouragement to those who have risen up against the mullahs and provided guidance for the road ahead.

The Countdown Has Begun

“The countdown has begun for the Velayat-e Faqih’s unjust and oppressive rule,” said Mrs. Rajavi. “Today, not only Iran’s history and nation but the entire world is admiring our arisen compatriots in Iran.”

Regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei tried to vilify the protesters and the Mujahedin-d Khalq (PMOI/MEK), using the words “hooligans” and “thugs” to describe them. “If defying the rule of religious dictatorship and rising up to establish freedom, democracy and equality are considered mischief and insecurity for the mullahs’ regime, then Iran’s rebellious youths, resistance units, and all the Mojahedin (MEK) and freedom fighters are proud of having done so,” Mrs. Rajavi proclaimed.

The uprising has been growing since December 2017, said Mrs. Rajavi. “Over the past year, the resistance units kept the flames of protests alight all over Iran despite horrendous pressure and persecution by the mullahs’ Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and Intelligence Ministry (MOIS). They endured great pain, suffering, torture, and imprisonment to move towards organizing the great Army of Freedom.”

“Look at the rebellious cities and this defiant generation and their battle,” Mrs. Rajavi urged. “This is the true image of our people and our country. Iran has revolted against the absolute tyranny of the vali-e faqih whose rule and authority had been stressed so much by the inhumane Khamenei.”

“The trend of events from December 2017 up to this date clearly shows that this uprising is durable,” she emphasized. “As the Iranian Resistance reiterated from the outset, the clerical regime does not have the power to contain the uprisings and quell the revolts of rebellious cities, [MEK] resistance units and the great Army of Freedom.”

Mrs. Rajavi stressed that the MEK and the Iranian people will not be satisfied with reform or surrender. “The army of the unemployed and hungry, the army of suppressed women, and the army of those who have nothing to lose but their chains, are not going to give in and surrender. They are not thinking of reforming the regime. They are not seeking to charm the State Security Force or the Revolutionary Guards. They want to uproot the entire regime,” she said.

“Currently, the people of Shiraz, Shahriar, Fardis, Kermanshah, Ahvaz, and other cities are taking control of whole districts in their cities. The time has come to liberate Iran entirely from the mullahs’ captivity and occupation.

The high spirits and fearless approach of protesters in confronting the regime’s forces, and the precipitous expansion of the uprising to various provinces, have a terrifying message for Khamenei and his establishment.

What is clear is that no assistance or appeasement by Western governments and no games of reformists versus hardliners will alleviate the regime’s pains or save it from certain and fast-approaching downfall. Nor will the wars and crimes in Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria, the regime’s nuclear programs, their plunder of oil revenues, or even their plainclothes agents and the plethora of various hirelings of the Intelligence Ministry,” she added.

“The Velayat-e Faqih religious dictatorship has reached the end of the line. Today, the cries of the people of Iran can be heard from the streets of Tehran, Isfahan, Kamyaran, Sirjan, Behbahan, Shiraz, Marivan, Bukan, Karaj, Khorramshahr, and Mahshahr. They are crying out, ‘Dictator, shame on you, let go of our country.’ They are chanting, ‘The mullahs must get lost!” Mrs. Rajavi stated.

Action Plan

Mrs. Rajavi concluded her message with a seven-part action plan.

  1. “I urge my fellow compatriots to actively participate in the memorial services of martyrs, everywhere, in any manner and to any possible extent,” said Mrs. Rajavi.
  2. “Supporting the arisen people, the rebellious youths and resistance units is a patriotic duty,” she continued.
  3. “Do not forget to attend to the wounded, cure their wounds, and help the families who have lost their guardians,” she reminded.
  4. “Protests and strikes at every possible time and place are essential for the continuation and expansion of the uprising,” she said.
  5. “The enemy is mobilizing all its forces, heads of branches and clerics to launch a counter-attack, to terrorize the public and to hold counter-demonstrations,” Mrs. Rajavi cautioned. “But these methods are no longer effective. Do not fear their tricks and bellows. National solidarity and cooperation are the best response.”
  6. “World governments and the international community must set aside all considerations and reservations about the regime. They should demand an immediate halt to the killings and arrests. If the regime does not comply, they must readily pull the trigger of UN Security Council sanctions. The UNSC must declare the regime’s leaders as criminals committing crimes against humanity. They must face justice for this massive suppression and bloodshed. The international community must strongly condemn the mullahs’ terrorism on the Internet and assist the people of Iran in circumventing this inhuman blockade,” she emphasized.

“The clerical regime is making all effort and using all means to conceal the true death toll. The United Nations must immediately dispatch investigative missions to Iran to evaluate the number of those killed, injured and imprisoned,” she concluded.

Iran Protests

Iran: Regime, Fearful of the Protests and the MEK

Iran Protests

Iranian protests in more than 165 cities with 251 killed and 7000 injured continues (File Photo)

Eight days after the start of protests in Iran, and despite the shutdown of the internet and information blackout by the Iranian regime, people of Iran continue their protests.

The mullah’s regime continuously claims that the protests have been crushed, and everything is under their control, but still the internet is shut down and reports indicate that the protests continue across the country.

The regime has been extremely fearful of the consequences of the protests. The quick shut down of the internet and remarks by Ali Khamenei, the regime’s Supreme Leader on the second day of the protests are indications of this fear. One other main indication of the regime’s fear is that while it is a red line to mention the name of the main opposition group, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI-MEK) inside the regime they explicitly blame the MEK for organizing the protests.

“…In the past two days, that is two nights and a day that followed this affair, almost all hooligan centers in the world encouraged these acts against us… criminal MEK are continuously encouraging these kinds of hooliganisms in the social media and other places…” Ali Khamenei, regime’s Supreme Leader said in a speech on November 17, 2019.

Ail Sahamkhani, the regime’s National Security adviser also blamed the MEK and claimed that some of the arrested demonstrators were from the MEK.

In a closed-door meeting of regime’s parliament “Shamkhani said some of the arrestees were from the MEK,” Assadollah Abbasi, spokesman of the regime’s parliament said in a press conference.

Hassan Rouhani, mullah’s president by calling the MEK “those who were terrorists” said:

“We must protect our security and brotherhood and our unity. People will not allow some individuals outside the country, those who exerted so much economic pressure on people or those who were terrorists and spelled people’s blood in the past, to take advantage of this situation.”

Ali Larijani, spokesman of regime’s parliament in his opening remarks of the parliament said:

“…after hearing remarks by His Highness (Khamenei), found it crucial to follow his instructions and look seriously into people’s concerns in the area of economic problems and with greater unity would not allow unrests to be created by the US and its lackeys, the MEK and the counter-revolutionaries…”

Ebrahim Raisi, head of regime’s Judiciary of  Brach by calling the MEK “counter-revolutionaries” in a speech said:

“Any aggression by hooligans, those affiliated with the counter-revolutionaries currents and infiltrators who have targeted the security of people and the society in line with the desires of the enemy will be dealt with decisive legal measures in conjunction with police and security forces.”

Ali Rabi’I, spokesman of the government by calling the MEK “old terrorists” said:

“Their (protesters) behaviors match fully with the policies of the old terrorists that we had in our country and over the years, with terrorist operations, have been looking forward to breaking and degrading Iran with such policies and … against us.”

Mohammad Mohammadi-Reyshahri, member of Council of Experts, and former Minister of Intelligence said: “Recent disturbances were not caused by people. Setting fire on people’s property and causing destructions were the work of the MEK and the counter-revolutionaries… the MEK had been planning to cause unrest since several months ago but they were identified very quickly and isolated from the people.”

According to state-run Fars news agency, Hossein Ashtari, Commander of the State Security Forces said:

“Our investigations indicate that instruction coming from counter-revolutionary and MEK organization was the cause of these events. Country’s security and police institutions will identify these individuals and God willing they will be punished for their practices at the right time.”

Other officials and commanders of the regime’s security forces also made similar statements.

“On Saturday evening troubles were caused by centers of hooliganism and rubbers of people’s property but, once again, the plots by the US failed. They planned to carry out this project in 2018 but did not succeed. The MEK has cells in our country and in other countries, some mercenaries and the US affiliated MEK inflict blows to the interests of nations.” Gholamreza Soleimani, Commander of Basij said in a press conference.

Massive rallies across Iran protesting gas price hikes imposed by the mullahs’ regime-November 2019

Protests Spread across Iranian Cities after Gasoline Prices Triple

Massive rallies across Iran protesting gas price hikes imposed by the mullahs’ regime-November 2019

Massive rallies across Iran protesting gas price hikes imposed by the mullahs’ regime-November 2019

Iranians took to the streets on Friday to protest gasoline prices after the cost of gas tripled. Protests began to escalate on Friday afternoon, and by Friday evening they had spread to more cities.

The people of Iran, 80 percent of whom live below the poverty line, are furious about the latest example of the plundering of the nation’s resources by the clerical regime. While many workers have had to resort to rummaging through public garbage cans to find food or selling their own organs to provide for their families, the regime and their cronies live in luxury using the wealth that belongs to the Iranian people.

Protests on Friday Afternoon

Iranians staged protests in a number of Iranian cities, with the help of the MEK’s Resistance Units. On Friday afternoon the protests grew in various cities in the southwestern province of Khuzestan.

In the cities of Ahvaz, Khorramshahr, Andimeshk, Dezful, Behbahan, and Mahshahr, protesters chanted anti-regime slogans and set tires on fire to block streets and highways.

Protests on Friday Evening

By Friday evening, the protests had gained momentum as more people joined the demonstrations taking place and additional protests began.

Protests in Ahvaz and other cities in Khuzestan took a dramatic turn when the State Security Force attacked the protesters, breaking the windshields of their vehicles. Ahvazi youth pushed back against the attack and sat down on the street, forcing them to retreat. The young people blocked the Mullah Thani Expressway, chanting, “Let go of Syria, think of us!” and “Have no fear, we are all together!”

Iranian youth have been a major force in the Iranian Resistance, and they have been instrumental in joining the Mujahedin-d Khalq (PMOI/MEK) in fighting against the mullahs’ tyranny.

The regime placed the State Security Force, the Ministry of Intelligence and Security, the Judiciary and other suppressive forces in various cities on high alert five days ago in anticipation of massive protests. The country has been on the verge of widespread revolt since the 2017/2018 uprising, and the regime’s answer to the unrest has been to increase its suppression.

In Mashhad, protesters rallied at the Vakil-Abad Expressway, switching off their cars and blocking the highway. The protesters chanted, “Dictator shame on you, let go of the country!” Rouhani shame on you, let go of the country!” “Death to Rouhani!” and “Our silence betrays Iran!” They also carried signs which read, “We will never again buy gasoline, one hand does make much noise.”

In the city of Hashtgerd in Karaj, just west of Tehran, people protested the rise in gas prices by driving their cars in the streets. People held similar protests in Shiraz, Karaj, and Sirjan.

Maryam Rajavi’s Response

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), saluted the brave protesters in Mashhad, Shiraz, Karaj, Sirjan, Ahvaz, and other Iranian cities for rising up against the corrupt and criminal regime. She encouraged the youth of Iran to join the protesters in their fight.

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.

Mrs. Ramesh Sepehrrad, from OIAC

Ramesh Sepehrrad; In a free Iran only the ballot box determines the legitimacy of the future government

Mrs. Ramesh Sepehrrad, from OIAC

Dr. Ramesh Sepehrrad, from OIAC delivering a speech to the New York Conference discussing the future of Iran-September 24, 2019

In a conference discussing the future of Iran, the representative of the Organization of Iranian-American Communities (OIAC) outlined the organization’s vision for the future of Iran.

Dr. Ramesh Sepehrrad, from OIAC, delivered a speech that was warmly receipted by the audience. Below please find an excerpt of her speech:

“It is my privilege and honor to speak to you on behalf of the Organization of Iranian- American Community who for more than twenty-five years has been primarily focusing on echoing the voice of the Iranian people as their struggle for human rights and democracy in our native land Iran.

Over the last century Iran has seen two brutal dictatorships, under the Pahlavi’s monarchy which in collaboration with the mullahs worked against the democratic and nationalistic government of Dr. Mosaddeq and now dealing with the misogynist regime since 1979, the religious fascist of mullahs who are incapable of reform or even engaging in a meaningful way with the Iranian people or for the rest of the world for that matter.

When it comes to this regime because this regime believes in the system of Velayat-e Faqih, this regime is committed and remains committed to the system of Velayat-e Faqih, and that means an absolute power that is only for non-elected male clerics, according to the regime’s constitution.

What has to be very clear is that the Iranian people’s rejection of both monarchy and mullahcracy is based on historic lessons from their struggle for freedom and democracy over the last several decades. This is not a partisan preference; it is simply the reality of Iran’s recent history. The 1979 revolution is Iran’s historic rejection of monarchy. While the mullahs have high jacked the revolution, the waves of the popular uprising in rejection of the mullahs during the 1980s, 1990s and most notably the 2009 and 2018 are the ongoing rejection of this regime in its entirety.

People of Iran, are not making any distinction between so-called reformers and hardliners, so why should we? This red line has been drawn by the blood and sacrifices of more than 120,000 martyrs for freedom in order to move Iran away from despotism of the past and religious tyranny of present. Therefore, it is our red-line too and crossing of this red-line under whatever pretext, is unacceptable, because it is undermining the true democracy movement in Iran.

The international community has not yet recognized the depth and extent of the ongoing crimes against the people of Iran, especially, the 1988 massacre of political prisoners. In our view, just as the Mayor (Giuliani) said Khamenei, Rouhani, Zarif, Qasem Soleimani, Ebrahim Raisi after four decades of execution and oppression, war, terrorism, subversion, mayhem by the terrorist IRGC and Ministry of Intelligence are all international criminals and must stand trial in the international tribunals and courts.

All of us gathered here agree that the Iranian regime is the enemy of not just the Iranian people but also the rest of the world. We agree that this regime must go. We also agree that it is up to Iranian people and their organized opposition movement, who shall and will bring this regime down in its entirety. We have also gathered here to emphasize the path forward for free Iran. OIAC stands for a non-nuclear, democratic, secular, Republic of Iran based on the following key principals:

  • In a free Iran, only the ballot box determines the legitimacy of the future government.
  • Freedom of speech, expression, association, and religion for all Iranians, and equal rights for all ethnic groups in the framework of Iran’s territorial integrity is a must in a free Iran. As my Baluchi sister said: we won’t let this regime colonize us any longer, we won’t let them divide us based on ethnic lines, we are all standing for the territorial integrity of Iran. We are Iranians first and we want this regime down together and if anyone has any doubt that we cannot do this, I will invite them to look to the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), where the Baluchis, the Kurds, the Turks, and the Fars, all of them, all the Iranian ethnic groups, have come together under one banner, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), fighting against this regime. We have done it before and Iran will do it again. Iran will do it again because the National Council of Resistance of Iran and the platform that it has, represents the diversity of Iran. This is our strengths. We will not let them colonize our ethnic groups.
  • In a free Iran, complete gender equality in all political, social, cultural, and economic spheres women of our native land are on the forefront to overthrow this misogynist regime; and we stand with them wholeheartedly.


In a free Iran, women will have all their rights to choose their clothing, and any exploitation of women on whatever pretext will be rejected.

In a free Iran, we would have a commitment to the universal declaration of human rights and all international covenants.

In a free Iran, the death penalty will be abolished; no more political prisoners, no more prisoners of conscience, and they will be released after the downfall of this regime.

The path to progress and prosperity in a free Iran is based on the followings:

  • Justice and equal opportunity for employment and occupation are imperative for all Iranians in a free market economy. Cronyism, nepotism, corruption or the mafia-style of government shall not be acceptable.
  • The rights of workers, farmers, nurses, employees, teachers, educators, retired people will be upheld and respected.
  • The diaspora, this is all of us, will have a duty of reversing the brain drain and support the rebuilding of Iran based on progressive labor laws and rights. Forced child labor must be abolished.
  • The future of Iran’s youth will be in high-quality education so that Iran can develop the next generation of workforce and scholars to thrive and contribute to the modern world. Iranian scientific community shall focus on humane advancement of technology, knowledge, innovation, and infrastructure for improving the lives of Iranian people.
  • No more weapons of mass destruction; we stand for a non-nuclear Iran.
  • Iranian scientific community shall also focus on reversing the environmental crises, water shortage, unnatural floods, earthquakes, through utilizing best practices in order to reverse the damage done under this criminal regime.
  • Iran shall live in peace and coexistence and cooperation and mutual respect with its neighbors and the international community. No more regional meddling and no more support for terrorist or the extremist groups.

So at this point, I’ll ask all delegates to think a moment, and envision an Iran based on these principals, and the path to recovery, an Iran that is worthy of our heritage, our history and the sacrifices made to date. Together, we must refrain from divisiveness. We need to aim all of our energies and efforts to change this regime first.

In 2002 the head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Massoud Rajavi announced the NCRI’s plan for promoting the national solidarity front to encompass all Iranians and political entities who reject the monarchy and the system of Velayat-e Faqih and our campaigning for a democratic independent and secular republic to come together. This call was faced with overwhelming misinformation and disinformation campaign by regime cronies and MOIS agents.

For too long, the Iranian regime’s lobbyists and apologists have worked to divide us by propagating falsehood and smear campaigns, lies and propaganda. This must stop. We must put an end to the disinformation campaign and the echo chamber against the MEK and the NCRI. We will end this.

This regime-change movement inside Iran is growing stronger day by day, because of the MEK’s resistance units and their ongoing efforts that are expanding to organize the public. We can do the same in exile, this means we need to be entirely focused on the threat of the Iranian regime and the need to overthrow this regime with all the factions within this regime. We need not be distracted by the regime’s ongoing propaganda as we push for further isolation of the regime, to provide support for regime change by Iranians. We must demonstrate political maturity and commitment to these principals and be fully committed to them, which can guarantee an enduring and effective unity against this regime. I’m hopeful that we will get there in solidarity which did not begin today, it has been going on for the last 40 years because of the National Council of Resistance of Iran.”

Executions and Hunger Strikes inside Regime’s Prisons

The human rights situation in Iran continues to worsen amid deteriorating prison conditions and an increase in executions. Nine prisoners were executed over a two-day period this week, and conditions inside Iranian prisons have become so dire that a number of inmates have been forced to go on life-threatening hunger strikes to protest for basic rights.

Executions

A total of nine prisoners were hanged on July 16th and 17th in Iran. Two of the prisoners were executed publicly.

On Tuesday morning, a prisoner was publicly executed in the city of Khandab, central Iran. On Wednesday morning, authorities conducted another public hanging in Bandar Mahshahr, southwest Iran.

Four prisoners were hanged on Tuesday in Urmia prison in northwestern Iran, and another two were executed on Wednesday. A woman was also executed on Wednesday in Nowshahr prison, northern Iran.

Hunger Strikes

Hunger strikes have become more common as a form of protest among Iranian political prisoners due to the mullahs’ crackdown on political dissent, which has caused massive overcrowding and subhuman conditions inside the regime’s prisons.

 

Political prisoner Sanaz Allahyari was beaten by violent inmates in Evin Prison after the twelfth day of her hunger strike. After the beating, she was transferred to another ward of the prison as punishment for the attack. Ms. Allahyari was suffering from severe weakness at the time of the beating due to her hunger strike. She has also been sick from an unknown illness for over two months, which has caused stomach pain, weight loss, and trembling in her extremities.

 

Ms. Allahyari’s husband, Amir Hossein Mohammadi Fard, wrote a letter to the head of the 28th Branch of the Tehran Revolutionary Court on July 2nd asking for medical treatment for his wife. He also demanded the release of Ms. Allahyari and the other detainees who were arrested for their support of the Haft Tappeh Sugarcane Factory workers’ strike. When his demands were not met, he joined Ms. Allahyari on her hunger strike.

Political prisoner Soheil Arabi was taken to a hospital after he had a seizure along with a severe drop in blood pressure in Fashafuyeh Prison. Arabi has been on a hunger strike for 30 days and has lost 10 kilograms. Reports from the MEK network indicate that he was returned to prison shortly after his condition was stabilized.

This is Mr. Ahabi’s third hunger strike in protest of substandard prison conditions and violence by prison employees.

MEK sources report that six political prisoners in Evin Prison have started a hunger strike in protest of the violation of their rights as political prisoners. The prisoners, Hossein Sarlack, Morteza Nazari Sadhi, Mohsen Aminpour, Reza Bazazadeh, Behrouz Zare and Reza Mohammad Hosseini, issued a statement listing the following demands:

  • the separation of political prisoners from other prisoners;
  • the conditional release of all political prisoners;
  • the recognition of political prisoners as “political” prisoners and not “security” prisoners by the regime;
  • the right to a lawyer in all legal proceedings.
