Isfahan, Jun. 15 – In a defiant challenge to authorities in the central city of Isfahan, opposition activists have written “Hail to Mojahedin” on walls in the main Bazaar, Naqsh-e Janah Square, Kafashan (Shoemakers’) Bazaar and in Qeisariya district.

The writing refers to the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI), the main opposition group, which has been outlawed by the theocratic state for the past 30 years.

The group had called for 10 days of protests beginning 10 June to mark the anniversary of major anti-government protests last summer.

Tehran province governor-general Morteza Tamaddon on Sunday said a number of PMOI affiliates were arrested in protests in Tehran over the weekend.

Tehran police chief Brig. Gen. Hossein Sajedi-Nia said a total of 91 anti-government protestors were arrested in the capital on Saturday.

Opposition sources claim 900, including 300 women, were arrested on 12 June.
