Massoumeh Malek Mohammadi: Awesome resistance against a cruel enemy

Massoumeh Malek Mohammadi

“Our salutes to the blood-drenched generation of June 20, who did not relent in their struggle against the mullahs’ regime, passing from one battlefield to the other, from one torture chamber to the next,” said Massoumeh Malek Mohammadi during her speech to the international virtual conference at Ashraf 3 marking the 40th anniversary of the beginning of the Iranian Resistance.

“They passed through the “residential unit“, “the grave”, “the coffin” and “the cage.” They passed through the death corridors and the hanging halls of the 1988 massacre, and the 14-year blockade and house-arrest in Ashraf and Liberty (in Iraq), but did not budge an iota on their ideals. And today, they are the focal point of hope for freedom of the people of Iran,” she added.
