    Conference, “1988 Massacre in Iran, Perpetrators must be TRIED” 

    Litigation for the 1988 Massacre Political Prisoners. Trial of Perpetrators of Massacre.

    Iran’s regime executed some 30,000 political prisoners in the 1988 Massacre. We will urge the world community to hold the perpetrators accountable.

    At the Call-for-Justice for #1988Massacre Conference demanding prosecution of its perpetrators and masterminds at an international court – Ashraf 3.

    The massacre of political prisoners was a blood-drenched encounter between the Middle Ages and a generation which created the 1979 revolution, a generation resolved to achieve a society based on freedom & equality, but encountered the monster of religious fascism.

    The 1988 Massacre was the horrifying scene of such historic confrontation, but it was not the end. It was the beginning a new confrontation which still continues and will write the fate of the Iranian nation in freedom.

    “Women in the Iranian Resistance – Defying the Misogynist Regime, Paying the Price of Freedom” 

    Women’s conference in Ashraf 3 in support of a free Iran – July 14, 2019 – Tirana, Albania

    An international conference was held, with the theme: “Women in the Iranian Resistance – Defying the Misogynist Regime, Paying the Price of Freedom”.

    Women’s rights activists and dignitaries from across the world were attending the conference in Ashraf 3, home to members of the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK) in Albania.

    These prominent figures were voicing support for women of Iran, who have been leading the struggle for freedom in the past decades. The event’s keynote speaker is Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi.

    Attendants were expressing support for Maryam Rajavi’s 10-point plan for a future free Iran.

    The first and keynote speaker of the event was Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

    Maryam Rajavi said: The common answer to all these problems, ranging from poverty and discrimination to lack of free choice, lies in freedom and equality. Not just equality and not just freedom. But both freedom and equality. Discrimination against women in Iran and in any society, at any juncture of history, have meant to subjugate the people, to suppress them, to plunder them and to strip them of their political rights.

    You might have heard claims that if the mullahs were to be overthrown, Iran would experience chaos, disasters and destitution. But aren’t Iranian women living in conditions even worse than war-torn countries? Aren’t they suffering from poverty, unemployment and homelessness?

    You can see 1,000 pioneering women at this place coming from various cities of Iran, from Khomeini’s prisons, or from universities in the U.S.,Europe & Iran. You see 3 generations side by side.They are members of the Central Council of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran.

    Most of the victims of rampant poverty and destitution in today’s Iran are women. Over 62 percent of women above 10 years are housewives. The average economic participation of women in the Middle East is 22 percent, but only 12 percent in the cities of Iran.

    If our movement was not deeply against exploitation and all of its political, social, theoretical, and cultural conducts, women could not hold such positions for a long time.

    To be a woman and not surrender, to be a woman and persevere in struggle, to be a woman and instead of thinking about yourself, think about the liberation of your enchained people, this is something that has driven the mullahs crazy.

    I would like to salute Iran’s political prisoners especially my sisters who have been resisting and defying the regime in Khamenei’s jails across Iran.

    Inspired by the 1,000 women of Ashraf, this is a tradition that Iran’s enlightened women and rebellious girls are following, which is an emancipating struggle.

    I would like to briefly review the status of Iranian women in a few realms:

      Indeed, women in the MEK have captured all arenas in Resistance against mysogynist regime ruling Iran.
      In Iranian Resistance, we are not talking about a few women reaching high profile levels here and there but in their thousands taking key positions.
      The entire leadership of this liberation movement comprises of women.
      I salute them!

    In the media : Talking about Maryam Rajavi; Our Mission: ‘Freedom, Democracy and Human Rights for Iran’ 

    By Mrs. Maryam Rajavi

    Yes, we do not want anything more than freedom and human rights, which will of course also open the way for us toward development and justice. This will ensure peace and security in Iran and the Middle East; an Iranfree of religious fascism, a non-nuclear Iran and an Iran without terrorism and belligerence.
    The religious dictatorship is a paper tiger when it comes to facing off with the Iranian Resistance. And its fate is no different from the fate of the Shah’s dictatorship. This is the verdict of history and the yearning of the people of Iran.

    Our Pledge: ‘To resist and fight until victory’

    To fend off the people’s fury for 40 years, the murderous mullahs have pointed their fingers at the U.S. as the enemy. But we were not deceived.
    Now, the people of Iran cry out in every street and alley that “our enemy is right here; the mullahs lie when they say America is the enemy.”

    The absurd comments made by the mullahs and their foreign minister about the so-called “B Team” in the United States was a bid to hide their own “Bomb team”: From developing a nuclear bomb to bombing plots in Albania and France, to bombings and planting of mines on oil tankers in the Persian Gulf, to the explosions, drones and missile attacks on Saudi Arabia and targeting of the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, the evidence is clear.

    When the mullahs are not held accountable and do not pay a price for their actions, they become more emboldened and intensify their belligerence. Launching Katyusha missiles in Mosul and Basra and the missile attack against a U.S. drone are very telling examples of this fact.
    For the past 40 years, the regime has persistently waged wars against the people of Iran and the world. Still, regime apologists and those who benefit from its continued rule feign concern for war. They use this as a pretext to dissuade the world from adopting any form of decisiveness, and instead urge appeasement of the ruling murderers in Iran.

    The main victims, however, are the people of Iran. The experience of the past 40 years has demonstrated that the mullahs’ theocratic regime is incapable of any reform or change of behavior. Indeed, as a (Persian) saying goes, “a viper will never give birth to a dove.”
    Khamenei says that change in the regime’s behavior is tantamount to regime change.
    Consider the American Declaration of Independence. The question before George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and their comrades and supporters was the same. And, similarly, our answer is the same: To resist and fight until victory.

    Three months ago, for the first time in the past 70 years, the President of the United States in his Nowruz (Persian New Year) message to the people of Iran attested to the fact that: “The Iranian people desire to reclaim their country’s proud history, expressive culture, and rightful place on the world stage. They deserve a government that is accountable to them and that treats them with dignity and respect.”
    He emphasized: “We pledge never to turn a deaf ear to the calls of the Iranian people for freedom, and we will never forget their ongoing struggle for human rights.”

    Yes, we do not want anything more than freedom and human rights, which will of course also open the way for us toward development and justice. This will ensure peace and security in Iran and the Middle East; an Iran free of religious fascism, a non-nuclear Iran and an Iran without terrorism and belligerence.
    The religious dictatorship is a paper tiger when it comes to facing off with the Iranian Resistance. And its fate is no different from the fate of the Shah’s dictatorship. This is the verdict of history and the yearning of the people of Iran.

    Iran’s petrochemical industry fueling the regime’s terrorism drive 

    Iran’s petrochemical industry; The terrorism cash cow

    Following U.S. sanctions against the Iranian regime’s largest and most profitable petrochemical companies for their connections with the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), al-Hayat daily cited revelations made by the Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

    “Petrochemical industry serving IRGC terrorism and Iranian intelligence” is the title of a June 9 al-Hayat article citing NCRI revelations. The Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) is the mullahs’ main intel/spying apparatus.

    “The NCRI, long calling for a full oil and arms embargo on Iran, says Tehran relies on profits from its oil and petrochemical product sales to financially fuel its terrorism and warmongering. The petrochemical branch consists of numerous companies working to provide the regime’s annual budget. The large majority of the petrochemical industry is under the control of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC). Various petrochemical experts inside Iran are estimating that 90 percent of the petrochemical industry is controlled by Khamenei himself.

    The “Setad Ejraiye Farmane Hazrate Emam” – Headquarters for Executing the Order of the Imam – is active under Khamenei’s direct supervision. From 1999 forward, [Iran] established a firm by the name of the Tadbir Economic Development Group, consisting of a large number of petrochemical companies and has control over a large portion of Iran’s petrochemical industry.

    The Persian Gulf Petrochemical Company is known as Iran’s largest petrochemical complex and the most profitable. This company is in charge of providing the funding necessary to the IRGC’s financial arm, known as Fort Khatam. This is the largest IRGC financial institution.

    The Persian Gulf Petrochemical Company is the largest holding company in Iran, consisting of 15 petrochemical firms. This company was launched back in 1991 under a different name and as a subsidiary of the National Iranian Petrochemical Company. According to a 2009 Majlis (parliament) resolution, the Persian Gulf Petrochemical Company, receiving shares of other petrochemical companies, became a holding firm controlling around 40 percent of the country’s petrochemical industry.

    Iraq was the endpoint of a large portion of Iran’s ordered petrochemical products in 2018 while transportation documents cite Turkey or other countries. This allows Iranian regime exporters to claim exports to Iraq were in the Iranian currency, the rial, and transfer only a portion of the profits to Iran in rials, while the main profits are held in foreign banks and used to fuel Tehran’s terrorism drive.

    Al-Hayat also published a list of petrochemical companies and groups active under Khamenei and the IRGC. These companies were previously unveiled by the NCRI.

    Rising prices, poverty and homelessness, the results of mullahs’ rule in Iran 

    Iran, July 9, 2019 – In a recent article, Keyhan, the news outlet that reflects the views of the Iranian regime supreme leader Ali Khamenei, acknowledged the country’s unsolvable housing crisis. “A person who could live in an 80-meter house with an 800-million-rial bond and 4-million-rial monthly rent last year must pay 12 million rials to rent the same house this year,” Keyhan wrote on July 1.

    The housing problem has become so critical that some of Iran’s people have foregone buying or renting homes and have resorted to living in tents.

    “The people no longer have the power to pay for rent. The problem has become so serious that I’ve received calls from people in my constituent, asking to receive tents from the Red Crescent to continue living in tents in parks. This has become a national issue,” said Ahmad Safari, a member of the regime’s Majlis (parliament) from Kermanshah.

    The state-run Resalat newspaper wrote on July 2, “More than 40 percent of the Iranian population is under the line of poverty. The rich are becoming richer and the poor poorer. The tax system is in total service of the rich. The banking system has put 70 percent of its wealth into the hands of 2.5 percent of the society.”

    Abrar-e Eqtesadi newspaper wrote on July 3, “The price of some food items has increased by 300 percent.”

    Ironically, before coming to Iran, Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the mullahs’ regime, had promised to build homes and give free water, electricity and transportation to Iranians. However, after 40 years, his regime has only achieved poverty and misery for the people of Iran.

    The current situation in Iran is the direct result of systematic embezzlement by the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and other institutions of the regime, which has come directly out of the pockets of the Iranian people.

    At the end of 2017, people in more than 140 cities across Iran poured into the streets despite the heavy presence of security forces and the regime’s brutal suppressive measures. Many of them were fed up with the corruption and mismanagement that of regime officials, which has driven their lives into poverty, inflation and unemployment.

    The protests, which continue to this day, blame the regime and its destructive domestic and foreign policies for the current economic conditions in Iran.

    The protesters are regularly chanting:

    “Let go of Syria, think about us!”

    “One less embezzlement and our problems will be solved”

    “Death to dictator”
