The war began on September 20, 1980, when Iraq invaded Iran.

Many Iranians, including MEK members living in Iran, rushed to the battlefronts to defend their homeland, and by January 1981, the war had begun to change course.

By June 1982, Iran had reclaimed all lost territory and Iraq had proposed a ceasefire and a withdrawal of troops from Iranian land, but the mullahs, hoping to turn Iraq into an Iranian province refused the terms.

Thursday marks 70 days since the start of a hunger strike by political prisoners Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee and Atena Daemi. The two women are currently being held in Qarchak Prison, a converted chicken farm with markedly poor conditions including a lack of adequate access to potable water. The facility is ordinarily reserved for violent female offenders, and the transfer of Iraee and Daemi to Qarchak was emblematic of Iranian authorities’ neglect for domestic laws regarding the separation of prisoners according to the nature of their offenses.

It looked like the Iranian Revolution was on its last legs by the autumn of 1980. It has faced many protests against the rule of the mullahs, for amongst other things rigging the election and hijacking the revolution.
Many people hoped that this would be a chance for the Iranian people to take their country back, alongside their organised democratic resistance group, the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). Unfortunately, this was not to be.

The mullahs’ regime became increasingly like a dictatorship following the rigged elections of 1980, when the mullahs stole power from the Iranian people and their democratic resistance forces the People's Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

In June, five months after the election, the mullahs closed down the universities under the auspices of a “cultural revolution”, but in reality, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei wanted to suppress a group that was more likely to rebel against the mullahs.

This article is about the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

Previously we had mentioned that, Massoud Rajavi the only MEK member that had escaped execution by the Shah, had been released from prison after the Shah fled and gave a speech advocating how the MEK would bring freedom and democracy to Iran.
