Paris: How to pack a rally

Earlier this week, the National Council of Resistance of Iran reported that 70,000 people showed up for their rally in Paris, calling to remove the designation of "terrorist group" applied to their armed group, the People's Mujahideen. (BBC)

Turns out they paid for people to come, and they didn't make a good impression either.


About 3,000 Polish students thought they'd made a great deal - a bus trip to Paris for the measly sum of 6.5 euro a person. However, their destination turned out to be a recruiting session for an Iranian terrorist group, the People's Mujahideen, which is banned in Europe and the US.

After seeing a promotion film, they were let go without trouble. One of the students said that they thought to have fun in Paris and not to be brainwashed by terrorists.

I do not know how the National Council of Resistance is funded but the British govt has behaved despicably. The National Council is a legitimate opposition to the Iranian govt which has hung gays and women. Yet the british govt has outlawed it on the request of the Iranian govt. What kind of a govt is it that bans legitimate opposition to fascism.
