On Sunday, March 7, on the eve of International Women’s Day (IWD), Resistance Units and Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK/PMOI) supporters in Tehran and other cities celebrated International Women’s Day by posting placards containing messages from Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) marking this occasion. Despite the extreme security environment, these activities took place in Tehran, Karaj, Shiraz, Zanjan, Ardabil, Rasht, Kerman, Mahshahr, Zahedan, Hamedan, and Urmia, and were welcomed by the people in these cities.
Some of the slogans posted were: “Maryam Rajavi: Women’s struggles and protests act as a bridge to freedom,” “Resistance, yes, compromise and surrender, never,” “Defeating Iran’s religious tyranny is the task of the arisen women of Iran,” “The corrupt clerics ruling Iran should know that they will be overthrown by women’s uprising sooner than later,” “Maryam Rajavi: Iranian women are playing a leading role in the fight against religious extremism,” “Maryam Rajavi: It’s the Iranian women’s honor to have been struggling against the clerical rule in Iran during the past 40 years,” and “March 8 is a day of anger and protest against inequality and gender discrimination.”
