Iran’s next revolution is being shaped by MEK resistance units







The term “resistance unit” may be a newcomer and still far from common in political literature or in the world of global politics. Yet, slowly but surely, it is making its way towards recognition by breaking down the wall of fear and censorship, both by the regime’s security apparatus and by the contempt of the international media oriented by certain interests called “real politics”. “.

As the Iranian Resistance has repeatedly explained, MEK resistance units are ordinary people living in Iranian society who have decided to devote themselves to regime change. They are people of all genders, classes, ethnic groups, geographic locations and professions who are well connected to the organized resistance and are putting their lives on the line to challenge the regime’s vast network of repression, one action at a time.

They write graffiti on walls, they put posters on bridges, they invade government websites and billboards, they broadcast slogans in public places… whatever a creative mind can invent to telling others that the terror is about to end and that hope must prevail.

Although the Iranian regime has arrested hundreds of resistance units, their number is increasing day by day. Many Iranian prisons are now filled with hundreds of these brave souls and thanks to family members who have brought messages out of prison, some have even said that they actually enjoy being among their new brothers and sisters and that the spirit of resistance spreads behind the bars more than beyond the walls.

The Iranian Resistance recently presented a video of 5,000 messages from MEK resistance units inside Iran. An effort that was launched only a few months ago showed the units’ dedication to surviving and thriving, defying the regime’s increased repression and censorship.

Speaking at Free Iran 2022, leaders and lawmakers from around the world expressed their emotions and ideas about the work of the resistance units and how it will shape Iran’s future.

The first U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Crest“Your resistance is growing day by day. There is the rising tide of protests and the impact of opposition actions by MEK resistance units in Iran which encourage people to voice their opposition to the regime and break the air of invincibility and intimidation of the regime. The regime today symbolizes a very weak theocracy. He has no choice but to suppress his people, especially the women. It is at the height of its internal political and social isolation.

“There is organized opposition both inside Iran in the form of the MEK resistance units and outside in the form of the NCRI which is the most enduring opposition coalition in Iran. Iranian history.

“I salute the resistance units in Iran who, at great sacrifice and at risk to themselves and their families, are rising up to pave the way for protests against this regime. And despite the mass arrests, their actions have grown in depth and breadth. They inspire others to do the same.

Former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper“This organization, the NCRI, and your Resistance Units have made your presence felt. There have been, I am told, more than 2,500 acts of defiance of various kinds, including last February the disruption of state-controlled radio and television, allowing messages to be broadcast directly to the Iranian people by Madame Rajavi. ”

Ryszard Czarnecki, Member of the European Parliament from Poland“I salute the bravery and sacrifice of the members of the Iranian Resistance and resistance units inside Iran who are exactly on the verge of ending the regime’s spell of suppression and repression…J I have a special message for the network of “Resistance Units” associated with the Iranian opposition, the PMOI. You never gave up, and this is how you showed the world that from a single Ashraf you have spread all over Iran, and your significant advances are pushing you on the path to freedom .

Former Secretary of the United States Air Force Deborah Lee James“I am filled with emotion watching these brave women and men in Iran who have continued to send these messages again and again despite the cold-blooded shooting of protesters by security forces and more than 400 political executions carried out by the government this year alone. Again, I say this is remarkable bravery on the part of the people in the face of the indescribable brutality of the regime… I know that the organized opposition, led by the Resistance units in Iran , is committed to achieving these goals.

Former Canadian Minister Tony Clement“There is a growing wave of protests and the impact of opposition actions by MEK resistance units in Iran which encourage the Iranian people to express their opposition to the regime and break the air of invincibility and intimidation of the regime which they seek to use to denigrate the morale of people who wish to confront this regime.

“Let me say in conclusion that I want to salute the resistance units in Iran with great sacrifice and risk themselves and their families that they want to rise up and pave the way for the expression of protest against this regime. Their resistance is what will guarantee freedom and the downfall of this very terrible regime.

Former Speaker of the British Parliament John Bercow: I tell you to express support, explicit, unwavering and robust support for the National Council of Resistance in Iran, support for the MEK resistance units and support for Maryam Rajavi.

“The dictators thought that bringing in the genocidal thug Ebrahim Raisi would stabilize things, keep the population in check, arrogate power to the center and secure his base. What they did not take into account was the opposition of the population. Raisi has spawned mass protests, protests every week, new resistance units as we speak.

“And this event supported like never before. We’re not talking about 1000 resistance units and video clips in your lecture. We are talking about tens of thousands. While more and more people express their virulent, sincere and implacable opposition to the regime and their desire for a true democracy. The flame of freedom continues to burn tremendously in Iran and that will not change.

Former Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa“This opposition is powerful and committed to democracy. Inside Iran, it exists in the form of the MEK resistance units. Outside Iran, it exists as the National Council of Resistance of Iran. Mrs. Maryam Rajavi granted all democratic values ​​in her ten point plan for a future free Iran.

Franc Bogovič, MEP from Slovenia“This year’s rapid developments in Iran leave much hope for a rapid march towards democracy. I have been amazed by the progress made by the Resistance Units inside Iran – those brave people, who know no bounds in their aims to break the atmosphere of terror and frustration propagated by the diet in the population.

“At the same time, the Iranian people show great enthusiasm for such courageous actions. We have heard of major activities such as the disruption of the regime’s radio and television or the installation of security cameras in the computer center of the Tehran municipality. »

“And an interesting element was the major cyberattack on the websites and databases of the Ministry of Agriculture, which was a campaign in response to the crackdown on oppressed farmers in Iran, especially in Isfahan.”

“To break down the wall of repression, they defaced photos of Khamenei on the homepage of the Ministry of Agriculture. This was in response to the brutal attack by the regime’s repressive forces on farmers in Isfahan who opened fire on destitute farmers, blinding many of them with pellet guns. Or when photos of Mrs. Rajavi appeared on the main state television program for a few seconds, to fill people with joy. The brave people who engage in it, risking their lives, deserve our full support. These actions indicate where to look for the real alternative to the ruling clerical regime in Iran.
