NCRI – Prominent Iranian political prisoner Ali Moezzi has sent out a message from Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the April 8, 2011 attack by the Iraqi army against members of the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) in Camp Ashraf, Iraq.
The unprovoked attack on the unarmed and defenseless PMOI (MEK) members in Camp Ashraf, which was carried out at the behest of the mullahs’ regime in Iran, left 36 camp residents killed and hundreds of others injured. The attack was condemned by the international community
Political prisoner Ali Moezzi, father of two PMOI members, wrote in his tribute:
On the fifth anniversary of April 8, 2011, we commemorate the epic valor and sacrifice of PMOI members. We bow our heads in recognition of the sacrifice of PMOI members that destroyed the fundamentalists’ conspiracies. Their blood, mixed with the blood spilt on the asphalt streets of our country and that of the executed political prisoners, will ensure a glorious future for Persia. From Saba Haftbaradaran who bled to death in front of her father’s eyes and lived true to her statement that we will stand resolute to our last breath; to Marzieh who valiantly rushed to her slaughter place and instantly died; to the Madadzadehs and other courageous heroes who were overrun by the [Iraqi] HUMVEEs. What a valiant stand they took at the scene.
What price were these women and men, members of the PMOI, so generously and valiantly paying? Was it anything other than the price of freedom and emancipation of mankind? Who raised them but the Iranian nation? So they shall rise again from every part of this earth to defeat the despicables who find their survival in passing over the bodies and wounds of those who are unarmed and defenseless. Shame and infamy to those who ordered and paved the way and those who closed their eyes to these crimes; and the most exalted praise to the dear martyrs who raised the flames of faith and perseverance for the most distanced to see.
