Reported by PMOI/MEK


Iran, Aug. 10, 2019 - Members of “Resistance Units,” a network associated directly to the Iranian opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), and supporters of this organization took time to mark the summer 1988 massacre anniversary and pay tribute to the thousands of victims who were perished at the hands of the mullahs’ regime across Iran.


In Isfahan, central Iran, PMOI/MEK supporters paid their respects and placed flowers at the graves of massacre victims. PMOI/MEK supporters also put up images of the massacre martyrs on walls across the city.




In Masjid Soleiman, southwest Iran, three PMOI/MEK supporters also held a small ceremony to honor their memories.


In Semnan, northern Iran, a group of PMOI/MEK supporters and families of PMOI/MEK martyrs visited their graves and paid respects.


In Khuzestan Province, southwest Iran, members of Resistance Unit 822 visited the gravesites of PMOI/MEK martyrs and placed flowers while pledging to continue their struggle for freedom and democracy in Iran.


In Kermanshah, western Iran, PMOI/MEK supporters also held a small ceremony to honor PMOI/MEK martyrs of the 1988 massacre.




In the cities of Mahshahr, Tehran, Shiraz, and Rasht, PMOI/MEK supporters also held similar ceremonies to honor the 1988 massacre martyrs and renew their commitment to continue this struggle for freedom in Iran.




In Asaluyeh, Tabriz, Mashhad, Gilan representing cities in nearly all corners of Iran, PMOI/MEK supporters put up images of PMOI/MEK martyrs, distributed pamphlets and took to graffiti to voice their hatred of the regime and the mullahs’ Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.


In Karaj, MEK supporters mark the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran by hanging pictures of martyrs to doves and free them to show their solidarity with the Iranian Resistance.




It is worth noting that such expressions of support for the PMOI/MEK are banned in Iran and anyone arrested for such measures can be arrested and even sentenced to death.
