Supporters of MEK/PMOI in Paris gather to show solidarity with Iran Protests
The supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) commemorated martyrs of the Iran protests.
Supporters of MEK/PMOI in Paris gathered to show their solidarity with Iran protests one day after Christmas and to commemorate martyrs of the Iran protests.
Supporters of MEK/PMOI announced, “As our nation grieves for the loss of the 1,500 brave men and women who fought and fell for freedom, we stand with them and cherish their memory in every way we can.”
The participants chanted slogans against the authorities of the Islamic Republic and expressed their sympathy with the mourners in Iran.
Terrified of the eruption of another nationwide uprising on the 40th day memorial of the martyrs of the November uprising, the clerical regime not only cut off the Internet but also mobilized all of its suppressive forces, including the IRGC, the State Security Force, the Bassij, plainclothes and intelligence ministry agents, as well as the mounted and dismounted anti-riot units in many parts of Tehran and other cities in a frantic effort to prevent the ceremonies honoring the martyrs.
It is worth to mentioning that the Iranian regime is taking measures to prevent news of potential protests from reaching the world.
According to Netblocks, an organization that tracks internet connectivity and censorship across the world, the Iranian regime has shut down internet access in parts of Iran.
Background of Iran protests
The unexpected increase in gasoline prices on November 14 almost immediately triggered a series of widespread protests across the country.
After days of protests across Iran, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei appeared impatient. Gathering his top security and government officials together, he issued an order: Do whatever it takes to stop them.
About 1,500 people were killed during less than two weeks of unrest that started on Nov. 15. As well as 17 teenagers and about 400 women.
