Iran, August 8, 2020—In the current explosive state of the Iranian society, the regime has taken every possible measure to prevent the emergence of a new round of uprisings. The recent weeks have seen an uptick in executions, arrests of activists, and other security measures across Iran.
But the regime’s measures have done nothing to intimidate the Iranian Resistance Units, the vast network of the main opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), who continue their activities in every town and city across Iran, risking their lives daily to bring an end to this evil tyranny and to restore freedom, justice and democracy.
The Resistance Units courageously played an important role in recent uprisings in Iran and several times the regime’s officials and state-run media has accused them of orchestrating the protests and guiding people. Today, their activities are taking place against the backdrop of ongoing protests across Iran.
While the regime tries to instill fear in the population to prevent protests, the Resistance Units are proving through their actions that regime change is within reach.
In recent days, from Wednesday, August 5, to Friday, August 7, the Iranian Resistance Units carried out various activities across Iran, keeping alit the flame of resistance and the hope for regime change.
The members of Resistance Units and MEK supporters bravely took to graffiti in public places of the cities of Tehran, Isfahan, Tabriz, Ahvaz, Arak, Dezful, Shahriar, Kerman, Khorramabad, Ardabil, Hormozgan, Damavand, Karaj, Rasht, Sari, Bandarabbas, and Shahre Quds spreading handwritten messages and writing slogans of the Iranian Resistance Leaders Massoud Rajavi and Maryam Rajavi on the walls.
Their slogans read:
“Down with the oppressor, be it the Shah or the Supreme Leader”
“Down with Khamenei, hail to Rajavi, hail to freedom”
“Down with the principle of the Supreme Leader’s rule”
“Our commitment is not to seek power at any cost, but to establish freedom and justice at any cost”
“our commitment is to remain faithful to our people’s sovereignty and their vote”
They also paid tribute to Mostafa Salehi, the political prisoner arrested during the December 2017 nationwide uprising in Isfahan that was executed on August 5, 2020. The Resistance Units held up signs that read: “Hail to Mostafa Salehi, martyr of the nationwide uprising.”
Iranian political prisoner Mostafa Salehi was executed by the Iranian regime for participating in protests in 2017-2018
The Resistance Units also honored the martyrs of the massacre of 30,000 Iranian political prisoners in 1988. An unprecedented crime, the 1988 massacre took place after Ruhollah Khomeini, then the regime’s supreme leader, issued a fatwa calling for the purging of Iran’s prisons of members and supporters of MEK.
They installed handwritten slogans on the walls that read:
“The 1988 massacre was a crime against humanity”
“Perpetrators of the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners must be prosecuted”
“We will neither forgive nor forget the 1988 massacre of political prisoners”
“The blood of the martyrs slain in 1988, are today roaring in Iran, giving rise to generation of rebellious youths who are motivated and inspired by it.”
On Friday, August 7, defiant and rebellious Iranian youths targeted a center of spread of fundamentalism in Neyshabur, Razavi Khorasan province. In Shahin Shahr, Isfahan province, an IRGC Basij sign was torched. Basij is the most hated suppressive paramilitary force and a subsidiary of the terrorist-designated IRGC, used to crack down on protests and demonstrations such as the November 2019 nationwide uprising.
Also, on Friday, the defiant youth of Tehran and Isfahan torched images of the Qassem Soleimani the now-dead commander of the terrorist IRGC Quds Force and the mastermind of the mullahs’ extraterritorial terrorist attacks.

These acts are a reflection of an upset society, as many experts close to the regime have warned.
