Over the past ten days, Iran has seen one of the biggest protests since the regime stole power in 1979. What began as a simple demonstration over a massive rise in the price of fuel, quickly morphed into an uprising demanding regime change and targeting Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, President Hassan Rouhani, and the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).
The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), a group that the Regime has long tried to portray as insignificant and unpopular among the Iranian people, has a leading role in these recent protests. Even the regime’s highest-ranking officials are forced to admit that their previous statements were lies and that the MEK enjoys nationwide support.
