Join 1 October protests in solidarity with brave women and men in Iran who have inspired the world

Outrage over the murder of 22 year old 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, we call on you to join a global day of solidarity with the courageous protestors. In London, the protest begins at 2pm in Trafalgar Square. Please come and stand with those challenging theocracy of which compulsory veiling is a pillar.

There are many other things you can do, such as highlighting the protests and mobilising solidarity, including by using hashtags #MahsaAmina #WomensRevolution #IranProtests and by putting pressure on governments to politically boycott the Islamic regime of Iran.

For more information, on protests, see ‘This is a woman’s revolution in the making,’ which includes an interview with our Spokesperson Maryam Namazie. Also see:

Protest for Iranian Lesbians on death row met with shouts of Allahu Akbar in Cologne

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. You can read more about it here.

Please sign a petition to help save the two who are facing execution for who they love. #LoveIsNotACrime
