Iranian Youth Set Fire to Ali Khamenei’s Banners and IRGC Bases in 75 Cities

As the possibility looms of a new revolution in Iran and the toppling of Iran’s government is now more definite and imminent than ever before, it is important to know how we have reached where we are and that events up to this point have not been mere coincidences.

Iran’s government has a major crisis in the just and democratic opposition movement. An entity that has been paying the price of its struggle for nearly four decades, standing firm on their objectives and principles, defying all odds before execution squads and the gallows, in the face of torturers and hundreds of prisons checkered across Iran.

The Iranian opposition based its strategy on “resistance units” inside Iran, with the objective of establishing units inside the society and forming a bond between the files of this revolution with the ranks seen in the central core of this movement, being the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

Although this strategy was blueprinted years ago, as crises inside Iran escalate and the government is witnessing more rifts inside its apparatus, along with the ongoing uprising continuing to this day since the December 2017/January 2018 revolt, the MEK’s “resistance units” strategy has implemented its impact across the board. They have now become the target of a demonizing campaign by elements of this government inside Iran and abroad.

From the Iranian government’s state-controlled media and remarks heard from numerous government officials, we can easily conclude that the resistance units have transformed into a major concern for the state’s security apparatus.

State media outlets even go the distance by emphasizing the role of other so-called opposition movements to thus decrease the importance and credibility of the Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the MEK as the core member of this opposition movement.

On Monday, September 16, 2019, the opposition announced that defiant youths torched huge billboards of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Bassij bases in cities of Karaj (west of the capital), Orumiyeh, Khoy and Makoo (northwest), and Roudsar and Rezvanshahr (north).

Torching Iran’s government symbols and writing anti-government slogans on the walls as well as putting up posters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) founders and Resistance’s leaders continued during the past three weeks in 75 cities across Iran by the defiant youths.
