MEK Resistance Units Commemorate Anniversary of National Resistance Against Mullahs’ Rule in Iran

June 20, 2022: PMOI/MEK Resistance Units in Iran mark anniversary of June 20, 1981, the start day of the resistance against the mullahs’ dictatorship.

On June 20, 1981, the MEK tested the democratic environment a final time by launching a demonstration to remind the Khomeini regime of its responsibilities to respect the fundamental freedoms of the Iranian people. In Tehran, more than 500 thousand people attended the demonstration, which hadn’t been publicly declared in advance.

In response, Khomeini ordered the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), his personal army, to open fire on the unarmed and peaceful protesters.
