June signifies another dishonorable date in MKO's history too. Following the arrest of Maryam Rajavi by French Police in her base in the Parisian suburb Auver Sur d'Oise MKO leaders made members commit suicide as an act of complaint.

June signifies another dishonorable date in MKO's history too. Following the arrest of Maryam Rajavi by French Police in her base in the Parisian suburb Auver Sur d'Oise MKO leaders made members commit suicide as an act of complaint. Some members of the group set themselves on fire in European cities.

Their act resulted in several disabilities and two deaths. For instance, a 17 year old Iranian-Canadian girl, Neda Hassani burned herself alive in front of French embassy in London on June 23th, 2003.

 

Regarding that June is the symbol of tragedy in MKO history, you may wonder why MKO celebrates June 20th anniversary every year and calls the date as the start of resistance against Islamic regime although they claim that they have renounced violence since June 2001 when they launched a mortar attack at President Khatami's office in Tehran.

 

It's been thirty years now that MKO's propaganda campaign uses this date as an occasion to wear a mask of democracy and misleadingly represent itself as the Iranian's voice.

 

Once more MKO propaganda is calling for a gathering in Paris on June 18. The so-called international gathering is attended by Afghans, Kurds, Turkish refugees who are eager to have a shelter and warm food for free for a day. They are also paid by MKO from 30 to 50 Euros for their presence at MKO event, having fun waving MKO flag.

 

The bankrupt MKO leaders also hire some retired politicians to speak at the event and advocate the group's cause which allegedly is bringing democracy and freedom and human rights in Iran although June itself is the symbol of violation of human rights and cult-like practices!

 

MKO celebrates the start of its treasonous armed struggle meanwhile it renounces violence and armed strategy. What should we believe? How can they conceal their infamous past? This is the dilemma MKO has been plunged into for at least the last twenty years.

 

The crucial point here is that MKO's existence has been blended with violence and cult-like human rights abuse and their claim for renouncing violence can never be true.
