Many of those involved in the massacre, which killed 30,000 political prisoners (mainly members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran or PMOI/MEK), are still alive and still hold positions of power within the Iranian Regime.

At the end of December, the people of Iran took to the streets because of the poor economic situation that is caused by the regime’s mishandling of the nation’s wealth.
