Reported by PMOI/MEK
Iran, Jan. 11, 2019 - Shohadaye Iran, a state-run news website, recently ran an article titled "[PMOI/MEK] write graffiti in Behesht-e Zahra," in which it betrayed the Iranian regime’s fear of the activities led by Iranian resistance units, groups of organized activists supporting the PMOI/MEK. “Writing slogans [on walls and floors] by [PMOI/MEK] is not an uncommon sight,” Shohada writes. “However, the fact that the writing haven’t been erased after several days might indicate that [officials] have become negligent in preserving the values of the Revolution.”

This state-run website describes the activities of the resistance units as such: “In the past several days, when families of those killed in the Iran-Iraq war visit the graves, they report that [PMOI/MEK] have written slogans near the location of the graves of war victims and they are unsatisfied that officials are not tending to the situation.”

While expressing its fear of the activities of Iranian resistance units, especially that call off the Iranian regime and its officials, Shohada website is urging regime officials to remove the traces of the slogans and graffiti written by the supporter of PMOI/MEK.
In the past year, the Iranian resistance units have played an important role in organizing protests and preventing the Iranian regime’s security forces from establishing an environment of terror and fear. By regularly setting posters of regime icons on fire and writing slogans against the tyrannical rule of the mullahs, the resistance units are lending courage to thousands of their compatriots who are fed up with 40 years of repression and corruption. The resistance units have also garnered support among the underprivileged people of Iran.
Regime officials have time and again expressed their fear of the PMOI/MEK and the Iranian resistance units and their role in the protests that have continued across the country since they erupted in December 2017.
