PMOI/MEK Resistance Units in Iran mark the day of martyrs & political prisoners

The Iranian Resistance Units, a network of the activists of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) across Iran, continued their activities across Iran, calling for the overthrow of the mullahs’ regime and commemorating June 20, the anniversary of the resistance against the regime.

The date marked the beginning of a nationwide resistance movement, which has continued to this day despite the regime’s brutal execution of more than 120,000 MEK members and supporters. The Resistance Units bravely took to posting pictures of Iranian resistance leader Massoud Rajavi and NCRI president-elect Maryam Rajavi. They also graffiti in public places with the slogans that commemorated the martyrs of Iran’s uprisings and vowed to put an end to the rule of the mullahs.

Over 16,000 deaths in Tehran province hospitals alone

9,050 deaths in four months in 34 out of 138 hospitals admitting Coronavirus patients

  • Maryam Rajavi: The growing and shocking number of victims across the country, especially in Tehran is a direct result of Khamenei’s and Rouhani’s criminal policies that in clear conflict with the relevant ministries and regime experts have sent workers to face the Coronavirus epidemic instead of coming to people’s aide and locking down non-essential activities. Instead, they brazenly claim that the public follows less than 9% of health protocols. How can they send millions of people to work in one of the most densely populated parts of the world in Tehran while maintaining social distancing 
  • Zali, Head of Coronavirus Headquarters: About 20% of Tehran’s population has contracted Coronavirus so far

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) announced on Monday, June 22, that the Coronavirus death toll in the first four months from February 20 to June 20, in Tehran Province’s hospitals alone is more than 16,000.
