The Resistance Units of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) have been expanding their activities across the country this week, as the mullahs start to admit that the younger generation wants to overthrow the regime.
From Sunday to Tuesday, Resistance Units undertook anti-regime activities in Tehran, Isfahan, Tabriz, Babolsar, Khorramabad, Qom, Damavand, Rasht, Esfarayen, Behbahan, Babol, and Masouleh. They called for regime change, wrote messages from MEK leader, and wrote slogans against supreme leader Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani.
Here are just a few of the slogans:
- “Down with Khamenei”
- “Freedom and humanity will prevail in Iran”
- “Maryam Rajavi’s ten-point plan is the true vision of a free Iran”
- “We can and we must overthrow the dictator”
- “Down with the principle of the Supreme Leader’s rule”
- “Freedom, justice and people’s sovereignty with Maryam Rajavi”
- “Maryam Rajavi, we are waiting for you, Iran Maryam, Maryam Iran”
- “A free Iran with Maryam Rajavi”
Over that same period, the brave youth of Iran burned the suppressive centers of the mullahs’ regime in different cities, including a Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Basij base in Qom and a banner of Basij in Babolsar. For context, the Basij is the paramilitary arm of the terrorist-designated IRGC and the regime uses them to crack down violently on peaceful protest, as happened in the November 2019 nationwide uprising.
Some defiant youth also torched images of Khamenei and regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini.
Many Iranian officials and the state-run media have acknowledged the Resistance Units’ leading role in the protests over the sudden gas price hike that began on November 15, 2019.
Three days after protests began, Gholamreza Soleimani, the head of the IRGC’s paramilitary Bassij force, admitted that the MEK had units across the country, while Ali Shamkhani, Secretary for the Supreme National Security Council said on November 24 that he believed that “34 MEK members have been arrested so far”.
In June, Resistance Units carried out activities in 85 cities.
Iranian Resistance leader Massoud Rajavi wanted to establish resistance units inside Iran to inspire the people and infiltrate the regime in order to overthrow the mullahs, which has come to pass as the Resistance Units played a key role in the December 2017 and November 2019 uprisings that shook the regime. It will not be too much longer before the regime falls and the MEK are able to take control.
