Iran Protests: MEK Supporters Echo the Voice of Their Countrymen and Women Globally  

The world hears the cry of Iranian people yearning for change, in part, due to the efforts of the Iranian diaspora, who echo the voice of their compatriots in four corners of the world.  

In recent days, Iranians, supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), have held daily protests in four corners of the world, calling on the international community to support the Iranian people’s right to democracy and freedom.  

The latest report of these solidarity demonstrations come from Toronto, Paris, Berlin, London, Bern, Vienna, Amsterdam, the Hague, Brussels, San Francisco, and Atlanta. 

MEK supporters and freedom-loving Iranians held pictures of the uprising’s martyrs and repeated slogans brave Iranians chant in the streets of Tehran and other cities across the country.  

They also held banners urging the international community to put more pressure on the regime and prosecute its criminal leaders, such as the mullahs’ president Ebrahim Raisi and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.  

MEK supporters and members of the Iranian diaspora also honored Mahsa Amini, a young Iranian girl whose tragic murder by the police sparked nationwide protests. They also paid tribute to the fallen heroes for freedom in Iran in the last four decades.  

Protests in Iran have entered their twelfth day despite the regime’s heavy crackdown, such as killing 200 protesters and arresting over 10,000. 

While the regime has tried its best to stifle the voice of dissent inside Iran and disconnect Iranians from the outside world, it seems that message of solidarity bypasses any filtering and reaches others thousands of kilometers away.
