According to MKO's propaganda June 20 signifies the day the group declared armed struggle against Islamic government.

 

Fighting for power after the Islamic Revolution led some of opposition movements to resort to violence instead of using peaceful and civil opposition. In June 1981,Rajavi instigated a number of dedicated teenagers and youth to launch an armed uprising against the newly established Islamic government which was in its bad days at war with Iraq. The so-called uprising ended with the arrest, death and execution of a large number of insurgents and eventually the failure of Rajavi's promised victory.

 

Since then, armed struggle was declared as MKO's strategy to fight against IRI and a wave of assassination of Iranian authorities started. MKO was supposed to overthrow the Islamic Republic in a short time after that date, according to Massoud Rajavi.

 

Rajavi's dream didn't come true and today thirty years after declaration of armed struggle Rajavi is disappeared and his organization is stuck in a cul-de-sac because it has to renounce violence in order to get removed from the list of foreign terrorist organizations of US State Department.
