MEK role in protests

By Jubin Katiraie

Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, spoke out about the ongoing uprising in Iran last week and tried to pretend that the Iran was definitely not in a deadlock and did not need to negotiate with the West.

However, senior officials, including Iran’s Minister of Interior Affairs and officials in line with Iran’s President Rouhani, who spoke about the crises Iran was facing on national TV on August 15 undercut Khamenei’s statement and credited the Iranian Resistance with organising and helping to carry out the protests, even if they did use some unfortunate words to describe the Resistance.

Iranian officials admit the role of MEK

The dictators in Iran are clearly concerned about their future. The main opposition – the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK) plays a large role in helping the people of Iran in their struggle for their rights. It is the only viable and organised alternative to the ruling clerical leadership that is destroying the country and plundering its wealth.

The Resistance movement has always had a significant following in Iran despite what officials may claim. Even back in the eighties, the Resistance movement was enough of a threat for the then Supreme Leader to order the executions of more than 30,000 political prisoners – mainly members of the PMOI / MEK and other dissidents. The incident has now become known as the 1988 massacre.

Thirty years ago, one of the worst massacres of the 20th century happened in Iran on the orders of Supreme Leader Ruhollah Khomeini.

Scared of the Iranian Resistance group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), and the Iranian people’s widespread support of them, Khomeini issued a fatwa that all MEK members being held as political prisoners should be exterminated.

Over the course of just a few months, 30,000 MEK members were subjected to mock trials and executed, regardless of their previous sentencing or even if they’d already served their prison term.

The Iranian Government often likes to portray the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) as highly unpopular inside and outside of Iran, which is an outright lie.

We’ve already covered various topics, including the current Iranian uprising and MEK TV, which show how much support the MEK has within Iran, so this time we will be focusing on how the MEK actually enjoys wide support from politicians and activists in the international community.

How Mullahs attempt to discredit the MEK within Iran

By Jubin Katiraie

The Mullahs have spent decades trying to discredit the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) within Iran through a series of strange methods, even before they banned the opposition group in the 1980s.

While state-sponsored propaganda usually takes the form of “news” reports and government statements, Iranian government has gone even further than that in their attempts to smear the MEK, including staging anti-MEK propaganda exhibitions at school and even airing network dramas to defame the MEK. Let’s look at some of those now in more detail.
