"1 October protests in solidarity with brave women and men in Iran who have inspired the world"
On 1 October, various organizations from many countries have launched an appeal to attend a global day of solidarity with the brave women and men in Iran who have inspired the world.
Outrage over the murder of 22 year old Jina Mahsa Amini for ‘improper veiling’ has sparked unprecedented protests across Iran and the world.
The slogans of these protests include: ‘We don’t want an Islamic government,’ ‘We don’t want an anti-women government,’ and ‘Woman, Life, Freedom.’ Images of women taking the lead, removing and burning their veils, united with men against the Islamic regime have inspired the world.
On 1 October, various organizations from many countries have launched an appeal to join a global day of solidarity with the courageous protestors.
In London, the protest will begin at 2pm in Trafalgar Square.
Organizers said there are many other things people can do, such as highlighting the protests and mobilising solidarity, including by using the hashtags #MahsaAmina #WomensRevolution #IranProtests and by putting pressure on governments to politically boycott the Islamic regime of Iran.

Protesters against the death sentences of lesbian activists Zahra Sedighi-Hamadani and Elham Chobdar in Iran were met with aggressive shouts of Allahu Akbar on September 10. The two women were found guilty of promoting homosexuality, but the aggressive hecklers were more concerned with our signs than the lives of these two women. More info here.
