Mahsa Jina Amini was just 22 years old when she was brutally beaten to death by the police in Iran for showing hair beneath her hijab.
Her death sparked protests across the country. Women burned their hijabs, cut their hair, and demanded an end to the curtailing of their rights. Hundreds of thousands have since taken to the streets protesting and dancing demanding “Women. Justice. Freedom” in opposition to broader government repression.
But the mass protests have been met with brutal crackdowns from Iran's government. Security forces have killed hundreds of protesters, schoolgirls have been targetted with mysterious gas attacks, and the government has started executing young protesters brave enough to speak out.
The rest of the world needs to stand with the people of Iran and call out the actions of its government. Post a message now to show solidarity.
