Iran, August 1, 2020—From Wednesday, July 29, to Friday, July 31, the Iranian Resistance Units, an internal network of activists of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), have been organizing various activities across Iran, commemorating the anniversary of the massacre of 30,000 Iranian political prisoners in 1988.

In an unprecedented crime against humanity the summer of 1988, regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini sent 30,000 Iranian political prisoners to the gallows in a matter of months. Khomeini’s goal was the total annihilation of the MEK, the most organized and capable opposition movement of Iran. Most of the prisoners executed in what became known as the 1988 massacre were members and supporters of the MEK.

The members of Resistance Units and MEK supporters bravely took to graffiti in public places of the cities of Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz, Mashhad, Bushehr, Kermanshah, Dezful, Ahvaz, Zanjan,  Semnan, Rudsar, Rasht, Iranshahr, Karaj, Ilam, Khorramabad and Qom, spreading handwritten messages and writing slogans on the walls in remembrance of the martyrs of the 1988 massacre and calling for the prosecution of the perpetrators.

Their slogans read:

“The 1988 massacre, the greatest unpunished crime against humanity,”

“We have called for prosecution of the masterminds and perpetrators of the 1988 massacre, this great crime against humanity,”

“The blood of the martyrs of the 1988 massacre gives rise to uprisings in Iran,”

“The sacred blood of those martyrs of 1988 gives rise to rebellious youths who are motivated and inspired by it,”

“We will neither forgive nor forget the 1988 massacre of political prisoners,”

“Down with the principle of the Supreme Leader’s rule,”

“Hail to Massoud Rajavi, down with Khamenei.”

Suppressive centers targeted

Also, on July 30, the brave and rebellious Iranian youth targeted eight suppressive centers of the regime in Tehran, Zahedan, Mashhad, Karaj, Hormozgan, Javanrud, and Khorramabad.

In Tehran, the brave youths set fire to a Morality Police base. The Morality Police is a suppressive police force deployed in Tehran with the task for suppressing women on the streets and alerting official law enforcement agencies of instances of “improper veiling” and other “violations” of the mullahs’ fundamentalist laws.

In Hormozgan, a Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) Basij base was torched by the defiant youth. Basij is the most hated suppressive paramilitary force and a subsidiary of the terrorist designated IRGC that is used to crack down on protests and demonstrations such as the November nationwide uprising.

Three looting centers were torched in Zahedan in Sistan and Baluchistan province, including a branch of Astan-e Quds, the most powerful financial institution affiliated to regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and overseen by the criminal Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Raisi.

Two centers of spread of fundamentalism and propaganda were torched in Mashhad and Karaj. These are the main gathering centers of regime loyalists who suppress protests.

Two banners of Qassem Soleimani, the now-dead commander of the terrorist IRGC Quds Force and the mastermind of the mullahs’ extraterritorial terrorist attacks, were torched in Javanrud and Khorramabad.

Soleimani played a key role in the killing of the members of the MEK in camp Ashraf in Iraq. Under the command of Qassem Soleimani, the criminal proxy forces of the Iranian regime in Iraq also staged numerous rocket attacks against MEK members in Camp Liberty, near the Baghdad Airport, killing dozens and wounding hundreds of others.
