the regime’s efforts to put an end to it, Iran’s nationwide protests are now in their fourth month. The fact that these demonstrations are still going on shows how well-organized they are and confirms that Iran’s political climate will never be the same again.

The upcoming revolution has exposed the true nature of a fragile and moribund government. Several Swiss politicians and thinkers met with Mr. Mohammad Mohaddessin, the head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) Foreign Affairs Committee, to discuss the current state of affairs in Iran and evaluate the outlook for this uprising.

 

What are the perspectives of ongoing protests in Iran that many consider as an uprising? Why has the uprising persisted in the last 100 days?

 

Iran, under the mullahs’ regime, is the center of human rights abuses, torture, execution, and the killing field for innocent men, women, and children. Yet, the uprising has continued for the last 100 days, featuring popular slogans such as “Death to Khamenei,” “Death to the dictator,” and “Death to the oppressor, be it Shah or the Leader [Khamenei].”

I want to point out two driving forces causing these protests to continue. The first reason is the Iranian society’s explosive state, leaving the majority of people frustrated. High inflation, sometimes reaching 100% in some commodities, rampant and horrible unemployment, state corruption affecting all of the country’s issues, and discrimination toward women and religious and ethnic minorities have created an explosive society.

 

At least 750 protesters have been killed, and the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK) has published the names of roughly 600 of them. At least 65 victims aged between two to 18 years old have been killed, and 30,000 protesters have been arrested.

Secondly, there is an organized Resistance working in different fields. On the one hand, it helps the revolution on the ground and guides the uprising as much as it can, and it has played a serious role so far. The Resistance Units network of the MEK has been a major driving force behind protests, and this fact was acknowledged by the regime. Besides, the Iranian Resistance has launched an extensive international campaign to help the uprising.

The regime must get rid of these two driving forces. So, it must focus on oppressing the Iranian Resistance besides the general suppression of Iranians from all walks of life. Tehran tries to stop the MEK and the National Council of Resistance of Iran as the country’s organized Resistance movement. The regime’s efforts against the Resistance have notably increased both inside and outside of Iran.

I want to conclude that first, we should be vigilant about the regime’s plots. Secondly, this uprising continues despite many upheavals. The situation will not return to the last four months. The regime is not the same regime in August 2022. The clerical regime of 2023 is completely different from the one in 2022, or precisely September 2022. The Iranian people are different than what they were in 2022. They are determined to continue at any cost.

 

The regime’s goal is to prevent the MEK and the NCRI from getting more credit because if they do, it means that there is an alternative to the regime. This is very dangerous for the regime.

Tehran's ruling elite has almost entirely suppressed political dissent and used its vast intelligence apparatus to sow divisions among the Iranian diaspora.

The message is clear: the government is corrupt and illegitimate, but the opposition is even worse. This narrative has served to justify an already willing West’s willingness to maintain the status quo and pursue engagement with Tehran at the expense of the Iranian people. It has offered regime incentive after incentive in an attempt to persuade it to change its behavior.

The People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK) is the organization, which is the main constituent of the coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). The regime’s brutality, terrorism, and propaganda have primarily targeted it.

 

Despite numerous massacres and crackdowns, one serious Iranian opposition group remains, with both the most extensive international activism and a track record of carrying out the most daring operations inside Iran.

When the NCRI organizes a conference or a political gathering to criticize the regime on human rights violations, nuclear advances, or regional adventurism, the aforementioned coalition of MEK opponents becomes vocal and warns Western media and politicians that “this group has no domestic support.” The MEK/NCRI are therefore not deserving of international support, the argument goes.

One wonders how the MEK has survived financially and logistically for four decades with “no domestic support.” There are a few undeniable facts that may help address the problem:

Since 1979, the regime has killed more than 120,000 MEK members and supporters, according to the MEK. Human rights organizations and even opponents of the MEK have repeatedly stated that the MEK has suffered the most as a result of the regime’s brutal crackdown.

The MEK has been Iran’s largest political opposition since 1965. By far the most enduring and largest coalition of Iranian groups and individuals is the NCRI. It was founded in Tehran in 1981 as a viable alternative to the clerical regime. Since 1982, the MEK has been capable of mobilizing tens of thousands of supporters in exile, and it continues to be capable of organizing the largest conferences, rallies, and meetings in exile.

Inside Iran, the MEK and NCRI have revealed a staggering amount of information about the regime’s nuclear and biochemical weapons programs, ballistic missile arsenal, Revolutionary Guards Corps, IRGC Quds Force, Ministry of Intelligence, the regime’s global terrorist network, and human rights violations, among other things. No other entity even comes close.

 

MEK Resistance Units are spreading throughout Iran. For more than five years, these fearless men and women, mostly in their twenties and thirties, have popularized defiant acts. Officials from the regime have repeatedly warned about the spread of Resistance Units in Iran.

Gauging one’s popularity is unrealistic and unscientific in the absence of even the smallest amount of freedom and free elections under a brutal dictatorship like Ali Khamenei’s reign. Even polls in Western democracies have flaws, let alone political polls conducted within the Iranian dictatorship. How can anyone expect an objective assessment of the popularity of a banned organization like the MEK? The regime regards it as an existential threat. Thousands have been executed for refusing to reject the MEK.

 

"In an era of bloody oppression, resistance is the only criterion and indicator of legitimacy," NCRI founder Massoud Rajavi once said. All candidates claiming to represent the will of the people can put their claims to the test in a free country with free elections overseen by the United Nations.

On Sunday, December 18, 2022, Iranians from all walks of life carried on the revolution. A day before, a number of American dignitaries attended a conference organized by Iranian American Communities as a visible gesture of solidarity for Iranian protesters. Iranian opposition President-elect Maryam Rajavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), spoke as the event’s keynote speaker and urged western governments to acknowledge the desire of the Iranian people to overthrow the regime. “During this period, the regime killed more than 700 protesters in the streets and arrested at least 30,000 people.”

"Women are at the forefront of this movement because they have been the most oppressed by this misogynistic regime.  It is an uprising against the religious dictatorship, with misogyny as its central pillar," Mrs. Rajavi said, referring to Iranian women's role in what many regard as Iran's democratic revolution.

Belgian lawmakers held a conference in support of Iran’s nationwide uprising, with Iranian opposition President-elect Maryam Rajavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). The event was presided over by Ms. Els Van Hoof, chair of the Belgian parliament’s foreign affairs committee.“The current situation in Iran is very sensitive. The regime has shown that it is capable of all crimes to remain in power. But in the face of the Iranian people’s courage, it has reached a dead end,” Mrs. Rajavi said.

Brave locals are continuing the trend of using Molotov cocktails to target Basij paramilitary forces affiliated with the regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), offices of representatives of regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, offices of members of the regime’s Majlis (parliament) who supported a recent call to execute all arrested protesters, and other state-affiliated buildings. Protests in Iran have now spread to at least 250 cities. According to sources from the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the regime’s forces have killed over 640 people and arrested over 30,000. The MEK has released the names of 516 protesters who were killed.

Iran’s uprising has now reached a significant turning point, marking the second month in a row and demonstrating the country’s resolve to keep fighting until the clerical regime is overthrown. The Iranian Resistance has been attempting to shed light on the socio-political roots of the recent developments in order to explain the future while many geopolitical experts and observers of the Middle East speculate on the outcome of the uprising.

 

How do you assess the prospects of the current protests in Iran?

 

The outlook is clear from our point of view because there are objective conditions for change. The situation in Iran is such that change is inevitable. Before the recent protests, one narrative was that the people of Iran do not want another revolution. This was the narrative promoted by the Iranian regime, its lobbies, and supporters of the appeasement policy. But today, this narrative has been invalidated.

 

What is your strategy for the success of recent protests and regime change? What do you say to those who claim that the regime will suppress the protests this time, too?

 

As you know, the religious dictatorship in Iran, which leverages the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the Basij, brutally unleashed armed violence against the demonstrators from the very first day of the uprising. It fired live ammunition and used pellet guns, and beat the demonstrators to the point of death, especially the female leaders of the demonstrations.

The Iranian Resistance has a multi-faceted strategy that relies on the people of Iran and specifically on the network of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) inside Iran, the focal point of which are the Resistance Units. Having this network gives us the power to access information and the power to organize anti-regime protests by different strata, including strikes, when the time comes.

 

There are massive protests going on in Iran, but can we expect large demonstrations of millions like the demonstrations against the Shah? If the majority of people are against this regime, why aren’t their demonstrations of millions of people?

 

We are confronted with a regime that knows no bounds in repression and killing and commits any crime for its own survival. Khamenei knows better than anyone that if he stops torture, execution, and repression, within a few hours or, at most, a few days, millions of demonstrators will pour into the streets all over Iran and the overthrow of his regime is inevitable. The policy of this regime is maximum suppression and complete disruption of the Internet and communication channels in order to prevent people from joining each other and forming large demonstrations.

 

Women play a prominent role in Iran’s protests. What’s the reason?

In our opinion, women are the driving force and force for change in Iran.

Regarding the reasons for the leading role of women in the current uprising in Iran, I can point to three parameters:

The first parameter is that the mullahs’ theocracy is a misogynist regime, which during the last four decades, has oppressed women the most. For this reason, there is a lot of motivation among Iranian women to change the regime.

The second parameter is the fact that over the past four decades, tens of thousands of Iranian women have been imprisoned, tortured, and executed for political reasons, mainly for their affiliation with the regime’s main opposition movement.

The third parameter is the main opposition force of Iran, the MEK, which has been led by women for more than three decades. Women in this organization at all levels of leadership have proven their abilities and competencies.

 

Another question that is raised is about the alternative to this regime. Is there an alternative?

 

The unity of the opposition forces is one of the essential elements of Resistance against a bloodthirsty dictatorship, especially the religious fascism ruling Iran currently. From the first day, this necessity shaped the philosophy and rationale for forming the National Council of Resistance of Iran. A coalition of groups, organizations, and different political tendencies and representatives of different nationalities in order to truly represent a significant part of Iranian society as much as possible. This unity already exists in the streets. The slogans of the people from Kurdistan to Zahedan and Tehran and all parts of Iran are the same. Denial of dictatorship in any form, whether it be a monarchy or theocracy.
