PARIS, FRANCE, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- On Thursday, July 29, 2021, on the thirty-third anniversary of the 1988 massacre of more than 30,000 political prisoners, more than 90% of whom were supporters and members of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (AKA, Mujahedin-e Khalq, MEK, PMOI),

Resistance Units and supporters of the MEK reiterated the need for justice and prosecution of the perpetrators of this great crime, especially Ebrahim Raisi, known as the henchman of the massacre. He is scheduled to take office as the regime’s president next week.

Defiant youth and MEK supporters held pictures of the victims of the 1988 massacre, who were executed because they chose to remain steadfast in their commitment to Iran's freedom and refused to denounce the MEK.

By these acts, they called for justice to be imposed on those responsible for the massacre.

They also carried placards with slogans such as:

"The murderer [Ebrahim] Raisi must be prosecuted,”

“The criminal Raisi (should know), he will be held accountable,”

“we will neither forgive nor forget the 1988 massacre,”

“Death to Raisi, the henchman of 1988 massacre – hail to Rajavi.”

Resistance Units and Mujahedin-e Khalq supporters also hanged banners on overhead paths on major motorways in Tehran and other cities.

The banners quoted speeches by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), on the 1988 massacre, and Ebrahim Raisi’s role in that crime against humanity.

The banners read:

"Maryam Rajavi: Raisi is guilty because even today he is still defending all his past crimes,"

"Maryam Rajavi: The 1988 massacre is one of the darkest moments in contemporary Iranian history,"

"Maryam Rajavi, today, the justice movement for the massacred victims is part of the movement of all Iranians to overthrow the regime,"

“Neither hiding the truth, nor destroying mass graves of the martyrs, or hiding their political tendencies (MEK), can stop the justice movement.”

Resistance Units and MEK supporters carried out these activities in harsh-security conditions and while the State Security Force and the Basiji militias were on high alert.

Local communities welcomed the activities with enthusiasm.

These activities took place in Greater Tehran, Isfahan, Ahvaz, Lahijan, Shahriar, Amol, Shiraz, Babolsar, Tabriz, Khorasan, Rasht, Kerman, Torbat-e Jam, Karaj, Khorramabad, Mashhad, Bandar Abbas, Yazd, Anzali, and Qazvin. Pictures of some of these activities could be seen below.
