Call to commemorate the anniversary of the November 1998 protests
The Resistance Units and supporters of MEK wrote graffiti and posted leaflets and placards in various cities following the passing of the Iran’s iconic maestro, Mohammad Reza Shajarian, who joined the Iranian people in chanting “Death to the dictator” during the 2009 uprising. The activities came in response to the call by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), who, had called for a week commemorating the legendary vocalist, in defiance of the regime preventing the people from attending his funeral.
In another development, on the eve of the anniversary of the November 2019 uprising and following the message by Massoud Rajavi, the Leader of the Iranian Resistance to “prepare for the anniversary of the martyrs and to commemorate the November uprising,” MEK supporters wrote slogans rejecting the dictatorships of both the Shah and Khamenei and calling for the disbanding of the criminal IRGC.
