Reported by PMOI/MEK
Iran, April 19, 2019 - Members of “Resistance Units,” a network associated directly to the Iranian opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), are paying their respects to martyrs executed by the Shah’s regime on April 19, 1972. Five senior PMOI/MEK members and seven members of another dissident group were executed on this same day in 1975.
Members of resistance units in Tehran paid their respects by visiting their graves and placing flowers. This is actually quite a dangerous move considering the fact that regime authorities are constantly monitoring these sites to identify dissidents, especially those found to be linked to the PMOI/MEK may even face the death penalty.
In Zahedan, southeast Iran, members of a resistance unit put images of these martyrs who were executed by the Shah’s regime.
In Karaj, west of Tehran, resistance unit members put up posters marking the memories of these martyrs.
Members of Resistance Unit 100 in Qazvin, northwest Iran, put up posters of these martyrs and took footage of their measures.
In Tabriz, northwest Iran, members of a resistance unit took to graffiti writing, “Resistance Units and the National Liberation Army will annihilate the Revolutionary Guards” (IRGC). The U.S. State Department recently designated the IRGC as a “Foreign Terrorist Organization” (FTO).
