About the movement

The MAHASTIM national movement is a political and cultural movement that aims to protect the Iranian original values and keep the national identity alive under the tricolor flag of the lion and the sun, the symbol of our beloved land of Iran. This movement is founded on universal principles such as democracy and secularism (Separation of religion from the government) and considers the national identity and the original Iranian culture as the only weapon and the most effective tool in overthrowing the illegitimate regime of the Islamic Republic. This movement was founded in 1999, at the same time as the student protests, through the efforts of Shahram Homayoun (a prominent journalist and patriotic political activist and former director of Channel One TV) and has remained committed to save Iran and endeavor to overthrow the Islamic Republic and to create the conditions for free elections, after the fall of the Islamic Republic, in order to determine the type of the future government in Iran based on people’s will, as well as maintaining the unity and the territorial integrity of Iran and safeguarding the tricolor flag of the lion and the sun. The leadership council of the MAHASTIM national movement is composed of a council based inside the country and a council abroad. Shahram Homayoun is a member of the Movement Leadership Council and Engineer Khashayar Vakili is the Secretary-General of MAHASTIM National Movement.
