Reported by PMOI / MEK
Iran, Dec. 13, 2018 - Members of the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) are reporting of their recent anti-regime activities across the country.
Members of Resistance Unit 151 in Sari, northern Iran, set fire to a large banner of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Basij, loathed by Iranians because of their oppressive nature. This large banner also contained images of current Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. Members of this resistance unit took footage of their brave measures and left a sign at the scene reading, “Resistance Unit 151 in Sari – We support the college students’ solidarity with Ahvaz steelworkers – Jailed teachers must be released.”
It is worth noting that if these resistance unit members are arrested they will face certain torture and even death. The Iranian regime considers any membership in or support of the PMOI/MEK as punishable by death.
In Chaharmahal & Bakhtiari Province in southern Iran, members of a resistance unit set fire to a large billboard containing images of Khomeini and Khamenei. Members of this resistance unit also took footage of their brave measures and sent it abroad.

Members of “Resistance Units,” a network associated with PMOI/MEK, in cities across the country are actively increasing their activities by putting up posters of Iranian opposition President Maryam Rajavi. They are also seen setting fire to posters of Iranian regime founder Khomeini and current Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
Members of a resistance unit in Tehran put up a large sign quoting Maryam Rajavi calling on college students to expand resistance units on their campuses.
Members of Resistance Unit 420 in Mashhad set fire to a large poster of the oppressive Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Basij units that contained images of Khomeini and Khamenei. The brave members of this resistance unit took footage of their courageous act and left behind a sign reading, “Death to Khamenei.”
On December 4, members of another resistance unit in Tehran set fire to a large billboard of Khamenei located on the capital’s Azadegan Expressway. Members of this resistance unit were able to take footage of their measures and send them abroad.
The Iranian regime has long voiced concerns about the PMOI/MEK resistance units.
The state-run “Baharestaneh” website in Iran, associated to Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, posted the following article on August 28th, indicating the mullahs’ utter fear of the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
“It is necessary to take a look at the differences the PMOI/MEK have implemented in their tactics these days in comparison to the Dec/Jan uprising period. For some time now, the PMOI/MEK launched a coordinated chorus indicating the Islamic Republic of Iran is in its final phase. Cyberspace has the role of providing backup fire in this regard… The PMOI/MEK have changed their tactic now and the protests, even in comparison to the Dec/Jan period, have surpassed an undeniable reality...
“It is worth taking the time and looking at the differences in the PMOI/MEK today in comparison to Dec/Jan:
“1. In the past, the PMOI/MEK were known to ride waves. Today, however, they have infiltrated into many social sectors and among people from all walks of life, including truck drivers, bazaar store owners, people whose life savings have been stolen by state-run firms, teachers, workers and … and [PMOI/MEK] are guiding them in their protests.
“2. The nature of today’s protests have changed. For example, in the past, it would take one or two days for social/economic chants to evolve into [anti-regime] slogans. Today, however, this transition is quickly turned into a political demonstration and slogans change into [anti-regime] chants.
“3. During the Dec/Jan period the protesters were unorganized and lacked leadership. There were vivid leadership mistakes on the ground and the movement lacked the necessary complexity. Today, however, in addition to gaining a gangster-like and aggressive spirit, [the protests] have the potential of establishing bunkers and shields in the streets in the case of a faceoff with security forces. This means the protesters are far more ready these days.
“4. Protesters, with the PMOI/MEK topping the list, lack any political reservations. They do not recognize any factional divisions inside the [Iranian regime] and they put the same amount of energy in their slogans against reformists as they do against principalists.
“5. The PMOI/MEK’s role in the Dec/Jan uprising is so undeniable that the Supreme Leader said in his January 9th speech: ‘A triangle was active in this regard… The PMOI/MEK was the third side of this triangle.”
“Currently, the fact that protesters are becoming organized is a game-changing factor in comparison to the Dec/Jan uprising. They have established entities dubbed ‘Resistance Units’ that are able to increase their numbers and have the potential of replacing leaders at the scene of protests [in case of arrests]!
“However, the most significant development is the linkage between these units to their leadership. Currently, these resistance units are receiving their guidance from Massoud Rajavi in the form of ‘Message to Resistance Units.’
“On August 2nd of this year, Massoud Rajavi sent a message titled, ‘Fist with fist, attack with attack, fire with fire’ to lift the protesters’ spirits, promising them these protests will continue and expand with each passing day. He described the protests as more organized in comparison to the past, claiming the [regime] lacks the capacity to confront these measures.
“Now that the enemy of the state, with such an apparatus, has prepared for a confrontation, we must acknowledge the fact that we are all in the same boat. Therefore, one must tell all government officials and the associated others that the status quo is a very serious threat that one cannot easily neglect.”
This text, posted in an article associated to Khamenei himself, vividly describes the dire situation of Iran’s regime and how the mullahs’ entire apparatus is literally crippled in the face of escalating protests across the country, especially with PMOI/MEK resistance units galvanizing and spearheading these efforts to target the regime’s core entities.
