Reported by PMOI/MEK
Iran, Aug. 9, 2018 - As the rebellious units of Iranian protestors are expanding their activities inside Iran to defend the rights of the people and organize protests across Iran, the Iranian regime is finding itself more and more terrified from the possible consequences of more people and social classes joining the nationwide protests.
In yesterday’s impeachment of Hassan Rouhani’s Labor minister Ali Rabii, the members of the Iranian regime’s Majlis (parliament) expressed their fear of the activities of PMOI/MEK supporters and activists.
In Ahvaz, Khuzestan, members of Rebellious Unit No. 313 set fire on a large poster of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the unelected leader of the Iranian regime and the person who has the last say on all matters of state. “This is Khuzestan,” members of Unit 313 say in the video they posted. “We are next to the Nakhl Square, I’m a member of Rebellious Unit 313 from Khuzestan, named after Mojahed Martyr Malek Sharai. We respond to fire with fire. Burn dictator! Burn!”
While insulting or offending the supreme leader in any way is considered a grave crime by the regime’s laws, in recent months, protests across the country were accompanied by shouts of “death to Khamenei” and “death to the supreme leader,” proving that the people of Iran are growing bolder in their opposition to the regime.
In Tabriz, East Azerbaijan, members of one of the rebellious units set fire on a large poster of the Revolutionary Guards on the Tabriz-Azar Shahr highway.
In Dogonbadan, Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Province, members of Rebellious Unit 777 set fire on another Khamenei poster. One of the members of the unit said, “This is dedicated to all those who gave their life for freedom in Iran, from Unit 777 to all freedom-lovers of our nation. Hail to the Mojahedin. Hail to Maryam and Massoud Rajavi. Death to Khamenei. Death to the Revolutionary Guards.”
Another rebellious unit it Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad province wrote slogans on street signs. The members of the unit were chanting, “Death to Khamenei, death to the rule of the clergy, salutations to the Mojahedin.”
It’s worth mentioning that the Iranian regime has zero tolerance for members and supporters of the PMOI/MEK and considers any ties to them as a capital offense. Since the early 1980’s, the Iranian regime has executed tens of thousands of prisoners for having ties to the MEK. In many cases, the supposed crime of the offenders was nothing more than reading or distributing the newspaper of the Mojahedin.
Yet, despite the many threats to their lives, the people of Iran, who crave for freedom and democracy, will go to great lengths to show their support for the MEK, knowing that it is the main opposition and alternative to the rule of the mullahs.
