Italian daily reports on PMOI and Camp Ashraf

The Italian Sociality party’s daily has released an analysis in its latest issue about the Iranian people’s recent protests and the role of the main opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran.”

The “Avanti!” wrote, “The largest opposition movement against the dictatorship ruling Iran is the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran which was established in the 1960s. The movement opposed the Shah’s regime. It quickly grew in size and [after the 1979 revolution] began organizing opposition against the clerical regime.”


“Today, the PMOI is headquartered in Camp Ashraf, 60 km from Baghdad and 120 km from Iran. It is under siege by the Iranian government and the Iranian regime’s agents. The urgent situation in Ashraf prompted the UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon to table a resolution at the Security Council affirming the rights of Ashraf residents.”

“Following the current regime’s overthrow,” Avanti wrote, “the PMOI would be prepared to establish a government in Iran based on the principles of democracy. The strength of this organization was revealed when the European Union removed the group from its terrorist list. The PMOI is now seeking to achieve a similar victory in the United States.”
