While state-sponsored propaganda usually takes the form of “news” reports and government statements, Iranian government has gone even further than that in their attempts to smear the MEK, including staging anti-MEK propaganda exhibitions at school and even airing network dramas to defame the MEK. Let’s look at some of those now in more detail. ANTI-MEK PROPAGANDA EXHIBITIONS After the 2009 uprising, which was largely led by the young, educated Iranians, the government decided to target the younger generation of Iranians to stop them from engaging in political activism or joining the MEK. Thus the idea of propaganda exhibitions was born. Between April 2010 and December 2012, more than 120 anti-MEK exhibitions were organized in 36 cities across Iran, with the intention of “familiarising the younger generation and especially students with the ‘crimes’ of the [MEK].” In these exhibitions, the government lied about the MEK, claiming the group had a “long history of violence and terror”, although they did correctly cite that the MEK played a key role in the 2009 protests. These exhibitions decreased from 2013 onwards, but the Government does still sponsor events to slander the MEK at schools and places of learning. How Mullahs Attempt to Discredit the MEK Within Iran I wonder if this is the group that will have support from the US.............ya know, spreading democracy and all.
