Reported by PMOI/MEK
Iran, Nov. 11, 2018 - Setting fire to images of senior Iranian regime officials has been seen on a wide scale by members of the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) resistance units members in numerous cities. This is yet another sign of Iranian youths responding to calls for more protests across the country.
Members of Resistance Unit 905 in Tehran set fire to a large billboard containing images of Iranian regime founder Khomeini and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
In Sari, members of a resistance unit also set blaze to a Khamenei poster.
These days, Iranian resistance units continue their activities across the country, keeping the fire of resistance and uprising alit and spreading fear among the ranks of the regime’s suppressive forces. In Urumiyeh, the members of one of the resistance units set fire on a large banner picturing Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Iranian regime.
The Iranian regime considers the supreme leader as its ultimate red line. Even when quarreling among themselves, regime officials take care not to raise the ire of the supreme leader. It also considers the PMOI/MEK as a red line and treats anyone who supports them harshly. In the past decades, the regime has executed tens of thousands of Iranians for being members or supporters of the MEK.
At great risk to their lives, the resistance units are continuing the nationwide protests and the struggles of the Iranian people for regime change.
Since protests erupted across Iran in December, the mullahs’ regime has become weakened in its entirety. The past months have shown that for the regime of Tehran, there’s no turning back and returning to the state of affairs before the protests. The national uprising will not be stifled.
If the regime wants to respond to the demands of the people in any way, it will embark on a journey that will result in its own undoing. Therefore it has no way to escape from its current deadlock. For the regime, it is either capitulating to the demands of the people, which will cause the unraveling of the suppressive and tyrannical rule it has established in the past four decades, of the intensification of its suppressive measures, which will result in the intensification of the rage of the people and trigger more protests and confrontations between the people and the regime.
Members of resistance units associated to the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) are expanding their activities in cities across Iran following a recent message delivered by Iranian opposition leader Massoud Rajavi.
Furthermore, following years of the Iranian regime taking advantage of the appeasement policy, recent sanctions imposed by the United States shows this lifeline is reaching its end for the mullahs’ rule.
Members of Resistance Unit 881 in Qazvin, northwest Iran, set fire to a poster of Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
“These days, an industry of concocting phony alternatives has become prevalent in the political arena, of course copying and pasting aspects from others. And this in itself is another sign of the phase of the regime’s overthrow. But the crux of the matter is how they are going to actually bring down this regime in practice. This question is especially relevant as the blood of the martyrs has permanently and historically blocked the path to reform within the clerical regime and the return of the monarchy.
“Now, if one can topple this regime without an organization and leadership, without overcoming thorny trials, and without paying the price and making sacrifices, we say: Please, go ahead, don’t delay.
“If one can restore the people’s sovereignty without a history of fighting against two regimes, without drawing boundaries against dictatorship, subordination and dependency, without waging a nationwide resistance and offering a galaxy of martyrs, without challenging the principle of the velayat-e faqih and phony regime “moderates,” we say: Please, go ahead, don’t delay.
“If one can topple the mullahs without challenging Khomeini over the unpatriotic Iran-Iraq war, forcing an end to the inferno of that war, and discrediting the regime’s slogan of ‘Liberating Quds via Karbala” without compelling Khomeini to accept the ceasefire by launching 100 military operations by the National Liberation Army of Iran, which captured the city of Mehran and marched to the gates of Kermanshah; and without exposing the regime’s nuclear weapons, missile, chemical and microbiological programs and facilities, yes, go ahead and don’t delay.
“The overthrow of this regime inevitably requires a willingness to pay the necessary price, it requires the practice of honesty and sacrifice, it requires an organization and a sturdy political alternative, and it requires the organization of resistance units and an army of liberation.”
