Reporting by PMOI/MEK
Iran, September 1, 2019–Members of "Resistance Units," a network associated directly to the Iranian opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), installed large posters the Ashraf massacre victims in the mountains of Tehran.
On September 1, 2013, at the behest of the Iranian regime, the forces of Iraqi Prime Minster Nouri al-Maliki, attacked Camp Ashraf, where some 100 MEK members had remained to oversee the sale of the residents' property. During the attack, the assailants murdered 52 MEK members in cold blood while they were unarmed and defenseless.
This crime against humanity drew wide condemnations across the world. The MEK martyrs, which stood true to their principles and their goal for a free Iran till their last breath, became a source of inspiration for the youth and freedom fighters in Iran.
In the past months, Iranian resistance units have played a key role in undermining the Iranian regime's efforts to spread terror and fear in the society to prevent more social and political protests from taking shape. Resistance units have been regularly setting fire on banners and posters of regime icons and leaders, sending a message of hope and unity to the millions of Iranians who are fed up with the 40-year tyranny of the mullahs.
